Mail is setting the standards of new web mail. The light look, simple design and fast retreival has made other mail boxes to re-design their architecure, look and feel. Now, GMail has added new functionality to it; GMail Labs. The little widgets has added to the functionality of GMail making it even better but right now I am going to write “things that are missing” in these labs.
One of the coolest widget giving the opportunity to add “custom views”. It’s use is simple. Open the view of your choice. Like make a search as label:<your lable> + “any string available for search”. This will result in a mailbox view filtered on specific criteria you mentioned and now you can add the quick link for this specific view. Everytime onward, whenever you click on this quick link you’ll have this view; i.e search reasult based on the query your wrote.
From the above example, I am creating a quick view based on the following search string
label:android is:unread This will result in mailbox view and list all the mails which has label “andriod” and are “unread”.
For the users who are having lots of Labels. Its cumbersome to scroll down to the bottom of the page to click on some quick link. It’d be great if GMail Team adds some drag-drop functionality for the panels at the left side.
