Simplify brings peace and enhanced productivity to the inbox with message grouping, new keyboard shortcuts, an inbox zero reward, and more.
And before anyone asks, yes, Simplify v2 is still going out this week. I aim to update all v1 customers today inside Gmail.
Woohoo! I'm excited for this.
🚀🚀 Excelente !!!! Fuerza y muy contento de poder utilizar Simplify
Profile pictures in list view is literally one of the things I wanted to see in Gmail for the longest time. Hope you get it to work. ☺️
Simplify is AMAZING. Thank you.
I'd pay for Bundles. I miss them more than any other feature of Inbox. It's completely sensible how difficult bundles is to implement on the add-on side as apposed to in the source code. Hope you're able to figure it out!
With bundles I loved the ability to only get X bundle once per day in the morning, that way throughout the day the emails didn't bother me and I could just triage those kind of emails once per day.
I'd love to see this kind of feature reappear.
I've really enjoyed following your updates and I find simplify makes Gmail so much better, it almost fills the void left by the demise of inbox.
2 things I liked about inbox and still miss were pins+sweep for fast inbox processing while keeping the items I want. Pins were of course effectively stars. It works well with the starred toggle at the top.
The second feature I really miss was expanding/opening emails within the inbox, it just felt so much quicker to get in and out of emails.
Are either of these features possible, please?
I'm getting really confused: So many things seem to be wonky now. Are there any known conflicts with other extensions? (e.g. no "focused" reply any more, can't delete an attachment, the formatting bar obscures the "send" button, etc.) Help. I love it, but it's now slowing me down frequently.
Since the update, I've noticed that when typing emails, my view scrolls down slightly with each key I type. It'll get to the bottom of the page, and then once a new line break is made it resumes the slow scroll. Very irritating to watch my text move as I type up emails in this. Any idea what might be causing this?
When moving through large threads I often use "enter" to expand a message in the thread to read it and then "enter" again to condense it again. Now the second "enter" initiates a reply. Is there a different command to re-condense (Probably not the right word but hopefully you know what I mean) the thread? Or a way to disable the new shortcut for "enter" so it reverts to its normal usage?
Why is one email in the list always darker than the others? How can I turn that off? It's super distracting and confusing.
Any news on the release?
I'm unable to understand what makes a giant like Google, with so many people and resources, unable to deliver anything close to Simplyify Gmail. I'm super excited about the update, checking twice a day for news! I will definately contribute financially.
Great overview Michael! I've one feature request, which I think the Quick filters/command menu will cover but stating it here anyways.
So, I've this perfect system setup for managing my newsletters. Whenever i subscribe to a new newsletter, the first mail pops up in my Updates tab, then I copy the email address of that mail and create a filter :
1. add the mail id in From section, then
2. tick 2 checkboxes:
Skip the Inbox (Archive it)
Apply the label: [Newsletter] // Newsletter is a label which i've created
Even though i've to do this only once, the trouble is it's a lot of clicks so sometimes I get lazy and then it gets messy. Also, in the above workflow, sometimes I use the "Filter messages like these" option in the very beginning but many a times, it populates the filter's "has the words" category with some mail list ID, so i then resort to copying the sender ID manually and pasting it in the "From" field.
I hope the details I described were clear, i tried to be as descriptive as possible. lemme know if anything's confusing.
I am hopeful that Simplify will be able to solve this someday :). what do you think?
I've just read that bundles are not yet in the new version. Sad, but I intend to continue to support the project. But there's also something that sould be addressed by Google since it's launch: the filter interface. It was a shame in 2007, after 13 years it is just ridiculous.
