We have been lacking decent workflows for dealing with messages. At small scale it is not much of a problem, if you only have 3 messages, you don’t need too much fancy. But as you accumulate messages working with them becomes hard.
Recently I added a few features to ease working with message backlogs.
- You can archive messages in bulk from your inbox which moves them to the “Archive” folder
- At the bottom of every message there is an “Archive” button.
Messages can be similarly moved out of the Archive mailbox
If anything new is posted in an archived message, message moves from Archive into Inbox.
This round of changes effectively enable “inbox 0” if you so desire.
In additional to this change, we are also aware of archiving in a “Team” context. If you are in a team mailbox (or message) and archive it, it will be come archived for the entire team. This allows a team member to clear up the entire team mailbox.
