IMPORTANT! Gmail users beware

If you use Gmail, keep reading.

Google has recently rolled out new “category tabs” for your Gmail inbox. These tabs auto-sort your email — so you could be missing important messages.

Below are two options for dealing with this, so you can continue to get the emails you want to receive in your inbox.

Option #1

If you’re anything like me and you want complete control over what email gets sent to you, you can disable the new category tabs by doing this:

Click the little PLUS SIGN at the top right of your inbox — next to the tabs. See the screenshot right here:

Then, when the box pops up, uncheck all of the boxes except primary and click save. Then you’ll revert to the traditional, BETTER Gmail inbox.

Option #2

If you want to keep these crazy tabs, but you’re worried about missing out on important emails (like this one), do this:

Step 1: Go to the Promotions Tab

Step 2: Find an Email from “Horizon Peak Consulting” in your inbox

Step 3: Drag that email into your Primary Inbox.

Like this:

You’ll get an alert saying, “This conversation has been moved to Primary.” Do this for all email messages you want to appear in your inbox going forward.
