Searching for "label:snoozed" lists Inbox snoozed emails in Gmail. But snoozed does not seem to behave like any normal label in gmail as you can not apply it other emails.

One solution is to write your quotes using Markdown, then use the Markdown Here Chrome extension to convert it to HTML.

You can stop redirecting www.gmail.com to inbox.google.com through a setting in Inbox as detailed here. Open Inbox On the top left, go to the main menu. Scroll to the bottom and choose Settings. Uncheck the box for Redirect Gmail to inbox.google.com

Short answer [UPDATE]: There isn't a permalink to the read view of a message but you could use the URL that corresponds to the search for message ID. Explanation Inbox by Gmail (IbG) and Gmail itself are two different web applications. They have access to the same mailbox, some features are the same, some are similar and there are several that are unique ...

Apparently, you can't. You can't even manually mark a single message as read without actually reading it. I expect that this is by design. If you're done with the message, then you should mark it "Done". If you don't need it right now but what to handle it later, you should "Snooze" it. If you don't ever need the message again, you can always "Trash" it. (...

Yes just not directly. Since Inbox is actually an extension to the Gmail service many of the finer settings can only be set from the Gmail settings menu. Vacation responder is one of these settings. To get to Gmail from Inbox you can simply type in Gmail.com as the URL, if you have Redirect Gmail to inbox.google.com checked then you need to choose Gmail ...

As @Sathya stated, you can't edit what ends up in the predefined bundles, but it's possible with the ones you create yourself. In the menu, almost at the bottom, just above Settings you have Create new.... But I assume you've already created "Jobs", since it I don't have it predefined in my Inbox. Then, still in the menu, hover the bundle you want to edit ...

I tested this in Inbox. The date needs to be in the correct order. Use before:YYYY/MM/DD as documented in the Advanced Search - Gmail help article.

Inbox's treatment of "Done" is the same as Gmail's "Archived". So whatever gets "Archived" in Gmail will be marked as "Done" in Inbox. As such, you can leverage Gmail's bulk editing to have it show in Inbox. Simply mark what you want in Gmail, either by filters, multiple selection etc. and then mark it as "Archived" which will make them marked as "Done" in ...

Go to https://inbox.google.com and click the diamond-shaped icon to the right of Chrome's address bar (omnibox). Then choose Allow and Finished:

Short answer: Never. It is just a queue that you'll need to review, eventually. Long answer: Quoted from Inbox Support Page Choose the Someday option under Snooze for emails or reminders that you might want to get back to, but aren't sure when. You can go back through your Someday list later and decide what to do with them. You can see ...

It is not currently possible to change this time. I have submitted feedback to Google regarding this as I also want to change it, however there currently is nothing that will allow you to change it at this time. The only thing you can do which may help speed up the process of having such a feature added is to submit feedback regarding this Inbox feature.

Might take a little while (depending on how many you have... and how the refresh of the screen works etc)... but show the pinned items, and hold down [ on your keyboard. You need to have "Keyboard Shortcuts" on. Click on the 3 lines in top left, then scroll to the bottom, click Settings, Under "Other", tick "Keyboard Shortcuts".

You can install the Markdown Here extension for Chrome and write the code in markdown format in the email compose window. You can either write the code with a four-space indent: this is some code Or with the triple backtick format: ``` this is some code ``` Then, to turn the markdown code into a properly formatted email, activate the extension ...

In Inbox, if you pin an email that is in the spam folder, it goes to your inbox instead. If you then unpin it, it will leave the inbox but not return to spam, and will show up in search results.

According to this thread on Google Forums, this is a known limitation and they have it on the slate for future implementation. I expect that the more people tell Google they want this, the more likely Google will implement it and sooner. EDIT I've noticed that Google Inbox has started automatically adding events to your Calendar when you accept the ...

You cannot star items from Inbox, and you cannot pin items from Gmail. But you can find one from the other. After you find a list of them, it's easy to star all of the pinned messages or pin all of the starred messages (select all, do action). You just need to search using "label:pinned" or "in:starred". Here are some examples of my searches. Note: While ...

Inbox by Gmail is a new app, so it doesn't have features removed yet, instead it doesn't have yet some expected features as a "quote" button. From An inbox that works for you - Official Gmail Blog When you start using Inbox, you’ll quickly see that it doesn’t feel the same as Gmail—and that’s the point. Gmail’s still there for you, but Inbox is ...

A quick workaround I found was to open the attachment, choose Print and then from the print menu, click Change Destination and select Save to Google Drive. It will list the account it will be saved to, and this can be changed based on which Google account you are currently logged in on. One small inconvenience with this method is that the saved file ...

The concepts in Ruben's answer are correct, however the syntax appears to have changed. Here are the steps that worked for me: Obtain the message id in the same way that Ruben did. Paste the message id into search bar. (No need to replace the '@' symbol.) Prepend rfc822msgid: to the front of the message id. This worked where simply pasting the message id ...

Inbox by Gmail and the Gmail web app present different user experience paradigms, but you can still interact easily between the two. It is obvious that the Gmail team doesn't want you to have problems switching back and forth. From Inbox, find your starred messages by adding in:starred to your search. Here is me searching for a starred message from Joshua. ...

I found a more practical hack to enable citation blocks in Inbox: Under Inbox Settings:Templates, create a new template. In the window that appears, paste an empty citation block copied from a Gmail window. Save that under a convenient name such as "citation block". Now, you can always insert a citation block in Inbox using this template. Look for the ...

From How Inbox works with Gmail: Marking something "Done" is the same as "Archiving" in Gmail Pinning something is generally equivalent to using the Gmail "Star" Bundles are basically the categories that Gmail introduced last year, but with more of them and more granular. Creating your own bundles is generally equivalent to creating labels in Gmail and ...

It still isn't a feature in Inbox, unfortunately. https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!searchin/gmail/inbox$20group$20email/gmail/U-L6Qsj68gw/oEv7uxiBvuEJ

I just made and published an extension for Google Chrome that adds permalinks in Google Inbox. It looks like this, so far: You can install it for free, from Google Web Store: Permalinks for Google Inbox.

Unfortunately this hasn't been implemented yet in Google Inbox. They recommend that if you want the feature, provide your feedback by following these steps. Go to the area in Inbox that you're having trouble with. We'll take a screenshot of the page, and it helps if we can see the problem. You can choose not to include the screenshot. Go to the main ...

There's no option to automatically move all mails from specific addresses to pre-existing bundles - you'll train Google Inbox by moving them to the bundles. You can, however create your own custom label (much like Gmail filters) and then have the label bundled it into Inbox

Yes there is, with caveats explained at the end of the answer. Just copy the subject of the thread, paste it in the search box between "" and press Search. The link you get back will give you the thread you need and can also be used by other people. If the subject is too general, just grab the from and to fields, a sentence in the body of one of the ...

Starting with the focus on the To field: Press Shift+Tab (to set the focus to the "hide arrow" in the top right corner of the compose overlay) Press Enter (to activate the "hide arrow" and show the hidden fields) Press Tab (to set the focus to the CC: field) Obviously, this isn't ideal, however!

It would appear to be not possible with Inbox as it currently exists. Bold, italic, underline, bulleted list, numbered list, are your formatting options. Simply selecting text and then pressing some format button is not an option (although it is in Gmail proper). It's possible that pasting from somewhere else might give you an indent that would be preserved,...
