Snooze Emails and Cards in Flow-e to Declutter Your Workflow

It is with great sadness that we announce the discontinuation of Flow-e for Gmail. As of 1st January 2020, Flow-e for Gmail will stop working. Learn More.

If this is the speed of your emails arriving in your inbox, then keep reading, our new feature was made for you.

Flow-e new feature is called Snooze and I can already hear you clicking that button.

Let’s take a look at how exactly this feature works. Please, use it with caution, all of the snoozed cards will eventually reappear and we don’t allow one card to be snoozed more than once.

Xo-xo-xo, we are evil, right?

The good part is that I am joking and you can snooze a card as many time as you need to. The reality is that indeed, all of your snoozed cards will come back once they reach the snooze date and you will have to handle them anyway.

My advice is to snooze mainly emails, which will need your attention in more than a week time.

Now, let’s get back to the business. Here is the user’s step-by-step guide which shows you how to snooze emails and standalone cards in Flow-e.

1) Enable snooze from the Power-ups panel

3) Where did my snoozed cards go?

Next to your column title, you will find two digits in a white bubble. The first one shows all the actionable items in that column. The second one, shows all cards in that column, including the snoozed cards. This is the place where you will find your snoozed cards. This is applicable for every column in your workflow.
