Welcoming Back Inbox Zero
I stumbled upon the concept of Inbox Zero over eight years ago when Google released Inbox by Gmail, an email management service alternative to Gmail. The goal was to help users better manage their email and improve email productivity through features like bundles, reminders, snooze, and highlight. I liked the minimal feel of the application and how the algorithms categorized and bundled emails of similar topics together for reading. Looking back, I realize that I didn't appreciate the reminders or snooze functionalities at the time because I didn't have a productivity system to store reminders.
