Last Week I Learned: Boomerang
I learned about Boomerang from Steve Barnwell at LearnFestATX. I have not set it up yet but will do so in about month when I add one more GSuite account to my growing list from my many professional and personal entanglements. When set up, it allows you to decide when your emails are actually delivered to you. You can designate specific times for delivery so that your phone or mail client are not always in an 'alway on and alerting mode.' You have to set an understanding that email is not the best mechanism for non-urgent communication (text/Slack/phonecall/walk down the hall are all better for that). Once set though, you can take back some control of when the often overwhelming volume of information comes in. I am excited to use this.
