I can move labels to the right-bar, and re-organize the left-bar, but I can’t move from left to right. aaargh.

Gmail does not support rich full-text search -- the indexer used is very limited. Among other things no synonyms, word stems, or subwords are indexed.

Tasks

Been working with it -- add email as task, archive it out of the inbox, take care of it via task completion.

 

Task annoyances: done tasks stay on the list -- which is good up to a point. But I’d like to remove them to a “done” list. Guess I’ll just have to create such a thing.

 

Also, ceasing editing of a task is not intuitive -- “back to list”. And creating a new task? If you hit ENTER you get a new task... aaargh.

 

 

Calendar

Hrm. just started using this. via gmail, anyway. I had used it in the waaaaaay past. two years ago?

 

 

Using it better

google support: Filters
google support: advanced sorting - operators, etc.

advanced filters
Gmail filters and boolean operators

 

 

Use alternate sent-from address to help sort replies

gmail >> Settings >> accounts and import >> Send mail as >> send mail from another address

 

Set it up with the plus-tag -- eg, xraysmalevich+freelance@gmail.com

 

This means that replies can be easily filtered based on your target address, not their source address.
