Free email tracking in Gmail
How to track when your emails are viewed for free in Gmail.
Billions of people use Gmail to manage personal and professional inboxes. It’s become such an essential tool for so many that some of the “basic” features are taken for granted.
Gmail’s conversation view feature is one of them.
Conversation view groups email replies into what Gmail calls conversations, or an email “thread”. When Gmail “threads” email replies into a conversation, it sorts them chronologically so you can easily see how the conversation unfolds.
Gmail’s email threading is a great feature, but it can be hard to find what you’re looking for as conversations grow longer and more complicated.
Have you ever changed topics during a conversation? We have! This is a natural way for a conversation to progress, but can complicate an email thread.
For example, suppose you’re supporting a customer and discover a Sales opportunity. You’re naturally excited and invite a Sales representative to join the conversation. However, the Sales representative has to sort through your 87 email-long conversation to find the information they need - that’s a lot of scrolling!
The solution? Use Streak to separate your email thread in Gmail into multiple conversations.
Thread Splitter is a free feature in Streak that allows you to separate an email thread in your Gmail inbox into multiple conversations. You can select any number of emails in a conversation and “split” them into a new conversation with a new subject line.
Separate email threads in Gmail today by following the steps below:
2. Open the email conversation in your Gmail inbox
3. Click the three-dot “More” menu at the top of the email
4. Select “Split Thread”
5. Select the message(s) you want to separate from the conversation
6. Click “Move Messages to New Thread”
7. Enter a subject line for the new email thread and click “Done”
Please note that you can’t merge threads together again after separating them.
Once you’ve separated the emails, you’ll find the new email thread with the subject line you entered in your inbox.
