How can we improve Boomerang for Gmail?

  1. Compatibility problem with Gmail's "Send from Gmail" chrome extension

    When I use Google's "Send from Gmail" extension for their Chrome browser (it allows me to email a link to the current page), I receive an error whenever I use the Send Later feature.

    After clicking Send Later, a dialog box appears telling me when the message will be sent.

    When I click OK, Gmail displays a dialog box stating:
    "Your draft has been modified.
    Are you sure you want to leave this page?"

    Sometimes this leaves a draft duplicate of the message I just sent, sometimes it doesn't.

    It shouldn't be necessary for me to force Gmail to close…

    • Return receipt for first read only!

      I didn't see this available in your FAQ, but other services do offer a feature where one can have a setting to receive a "read receipt" the FIRST time it is opened/read, and not a gazillion times, which can happen with replying back and forth to the same message using Boomerang. Thanks!

          • I've gone back to free because I do not like new format

            I find having boomerang pop up at the bottom of the message box annoying and harder to read my message and shrinks the size of the message box. For that reason, I will be discontinuing the use of. Too bac because I really liked the old version.

            • Automate follow-up emails in one step (not having to go to "Sent" label)

              Would be great to be able to configure the follow up email from within the compose window of the first email.
              Going to “Sent” label after composing the message to configure the follow up mail is a bit annoying (specially when you need to do a lots of follow ups)

              It´ll be like this: i´m sending this email and, if there´s no answer, I´d like to send this other one to follow-up.

              And everything from the "Compose" window (without having to go to "Sent" label, open the email, write the reply, choose "Send Later" "If nobody replies".... too many steps!)

              • Search functionality in "messages" tab

                Would be awesome to be able to search for older mail sent. It would also be awesome to be able to see more than 50 emails. As I send multiple emails/day, this is imperative to track metrics.

                • Using days of week (Monday, Tuesday, etc) broken

                  It used to be that if I typed "9am Monday" as my boomerang time on Friday (a common task for me, wanting to deal with it first thing next week), it would understand and allow it. Now, whenever I use a day of the week that already happened in the current week (Tuesday, if it's Thursday, etc), it assumes I'm trying to put a time in the past instead of the human-logical assumption that I mean the upcoming weekday of the same name. I would love a fix for it. It's that one nagging bug for me. Thanks for the…

                    • 24-hour/Military Time

                      At present, Boomerang does not recognize times entered in the 24-hour clock format. For example, the time "fri 1300" is not recognized as equivalent to "fri 1:00p" (the shortest working way of entering "Friday at 1:00 p.m." that I know right now). This would enable some users to speed things up a bit.

                        I would like the option to send an email or someone every first wed of the month for example. This would be ideal and the reason I downloaded boomerang. You have an excellent product, and I hope you can incorporate this feature in the near future!

                        • Boomerang if X recipient does not respond.

                          I often send an email to multiple people, but am only interested if a particular person(s) respond. Rather than counting its job as done if anyone responds, I'd like to be able to specify "Boomerang if X recipient(s) does not respond".

                            • 3 send later limit

                              Need to improve this to make it so that you do not lose the message if you try to send more than 3 messages later at the same date/time. If I do this "which is usually accidentally", the message remains a draft. If I resend the draft at a different delayed time, the message never sends or I get an error. If I erase the message, then write the same one again and send it later at a different time, the same issue occurs. This is a big bug.

                                There are some emails that I would like to have boomerang (boomerung?) before I ever see them. For me, I would love to create a simple rule - if it comes in during the workday (between 8:30 and 5, say), and the sender is "@facebook.com" or something like that, then deliver it after 6pm that day. Sort of a combination of your boomerang, your inbox pause, and a filter. This way, i could pay attention to my inbox during the day without getting distracted by newsletters until the evening. I have filters to mark some of these as read already,…

                                    • Customised Schedule

                                      Your defaults are good but allowing users to customise "send" dates would be better.

                                      • Allow creation of templates for easy scheduling of recurring messages

                                        On a daily basis, I schedule a lot of recurring messages with almost always the same setting. And I have to change boomerang's settings every time I wanna schedule the recurring message.

                                        Maybe you could add a preference where I could create templates for recurring messages. Example: 1 e-mail a day, for 30 days, at 3PM. They would appear directly in the boomerang button, making it faster to schedule them.

                                        • Help me unlabel boomerang'd messages

                                          So, here's my situation. I'd like to look at my currently boomerang'd messages from within gmail, which I can do with a label:boomerang search. The problem is that this includes lots of conversations that have already come back to my inbox and been dealt with, because I've been very negligent about removing the boomerang label from those. If the plugin could provide any feedback about which conversations are in what state, that would be very helpful.
