How to ‘Undo Send’ in iSpartan Gmail. A tip from ITS

Images from iSpatan showing what to do in GmailiSpartan is UNCG’s implementation of Google Apps for Education (GAFE). GAFE is a collection of web-based collaboration tools, including email (Gmail), chat, calendaring, word processing, and spreadsheets. These tools work through a Web browser, without requiring users to buy or install software.

iSpartan Gmail is, by far, the most used tool on campus. The tool is robust and highly configurable. The tips below describe one new feature “Undo Send” which many folks may find helpful, as well as information about a few not-so-new features which may be of interest.

An exciting new feature in Gmail is the Undo Send option. This option slightly delays the actual sending of your message, providing you a short window of opportunity to reopen the email in its draft state. This feature helps prevent the consequences of accidentally clicking the send button as well as those messages one instantly regrets.

To enable this option, go to your Gmail General Settings and select Enable Undo Send in the Undo Send section.

To use this feature after you send a message, click Undo in the Send Notification Area.

For more information about this feature, see Gmail Help: Undo sending your mail.
