Mail timer for GMail
Item media 1 screenshot


Timer to keep you focused while processing your inbox in Gmail.

This is a time-saving script I wrote to help me process my inbox faster. After 2 minutes spent on an email in your inbox, it pops up a reminder message to move on. (And when you have less than 30 seconds left, it shows a "30" icon in the browser bar to nudge you along.) Great for quickly clearing your inbox for things like Getting Things Done (GTD.) It's quite basic, but if you like it and use it, I'm happy to make improvements. Update: Now you can choose how much time per email you want to spend.

Sadly, this pops up the timer when the GMail tab isn't in the foreground. That means I'm being reminded of my email when I'm not doing email, and that causes more disruption than benefit to my workflow.
