GMail To Offer Inbox Without Conversation View


12806v21 max 450x450 GMail To Offer Inbox Without Conversation ViewI’d speculate I’m just one of the special people that don’t like the conversation thread view.

It jacks up my whole thought processes. I like to see things in time order and sometimes when Gmail is attempting to do me a favor by organizing my emails, I can’t find them.

The worst thing is to have someone send you an email from 4 weeks ago and now it’s buried in a pile of other emails from 4 weeks ago. It just kills me on that stuff and now that Google is going to offer the option- that’s awesome.

Don’t get me wrong, I like seeing a threaded view from time to time for doing research, but not by default.

I saw the post from BetaNews this morning, but this is the link from Google where they indicate they’re changing things up.

It indicates the changes should be in affect in a couple of days [about a week or so].

I don’t see this option in my inbox yet, but when it changes, I’ll be that much happier.

Some may not agree with me, but that’s why it’s going to be optional.

 

Until next time,

    Thats because you are weird. I have grown to rely on the conversation string and search. I just wish I could integrate all other forms of communication in that string (phone, text, twitter, etc)

      And without knowing it, you're completely on track about me being weird. But I'm going to feel better about turning off the conversations as an OPTION; it'll work for me. The thing is, while it works for some; not everyone's mind processes information the same way, so having options like this is the smart thing to do.I appreciate it…
