Pausing Your Inbox

E-mail is one of those things we just can’t live without these days, but how often does it become a huge distraction that can put a dent in your productivity?

When your devices are setup to constantly alert as a new message arrives, manually turning the notifications on or off is also a bit cumbersome 

Wouldn’t it be great if you could simply pause those incoming messages for a while when you need to focus? 

Gmail users can do just that with a free add-on called ‘Inbox Pause’. 

Inbox Pause is a simple tool that adds a button which allows you to pause or un-pause your inbox with the click of a mouse. 

It also allows you to notify people that you’re currently in ‘pause mode’ in the event their message is urgent. 

The banner at the top will remind you when you are ‘pausing’ so you won’t forget.
