What do you like best?

Since a major part of my job is communicating with vendors via email, it is helpful to have a tool that will allow me to have messages returned to my inbox if there is no reply. And since I often have to send messages on a certain day or at a certain time, I can compose them early and have them sent when I am ready. All of this is available for free, up to a certain number, which I have rarely reached. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have honestly not found much that I dislike about this program. If pressed, I would say that the Remind Me feature jumps the gun a bit when I am trying to set it up: instead of allowing me to confirm a day/time, it will automatically create a default reminder. And I have not yet found a way to cancel a reminder so that I do not use up a free Boomerang unnecessarily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you use the free version, you literally have nothing to lose. I have recommended it to several co-workers and expect to have it as a standard for all email users within our company in the near future. If you need a more efficient way to follow-up or follow-through with associates via email, this is a great program. It works well for me, and I have held multiple titles/roles in my organization. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have far fewer unread messages that are days or weeks old. If I know I will need to follow-up on something at a later date, I can "Boomerang" it instead of keeping it in my Inbox. If I need to send a message to a vendor about a seasonal item or promotion, I can write the message now and have it sent whenever needed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love that you're able to write emails ahead of time and decide precisely when to send them out. If you made a mistake, you can go back to edit the message or attachments. You can also cancel a scheduled email if you don't want it to send. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I once had an issue where I went back to edit an email that I intended to send later, and couldn't find it in the Boomerang Outbox after I edited it. I found out that it did indeed send when I wanted it to, but I was mildly stressed out when I couldn't find it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can now write out emails ahead of time and sit on them for a while in order to make sure they're worded correctly. I no longer have to remember to send emails when I want them to go out. I can write them ahead of time and Boomerang will make sure they're sent. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Keeping track of emails has never been easier, sometimes it is very difficult to read and respond to emails on time, but with Boomerang for Gmail you can reply to emails and set delivery dates and they will be sent when you want, plus I love it because yes I need answers to an urgent email, I can know if this person has read my email and I am calm knowing that I will open a response soon, or I simply call to know their opinion knowing that they have already received and read my email. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing negative is a simple and easy to use platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The best thing about this platform is that I can also carry out Marketing of our products and services and know if people have opened the mail and if they have opened the link that sent it with the information about the services and products, I love it because it is very simple It just doesn't let me forget to answer important emails and it also helps me manage emails without so much work, before I spent a lot of time selecting important emails, which in the end I never read again.

What do you like best?

I follow up on every single client email I receive which can be dozens every day. It would otherwise be impossible for me to keep track of who I need to reach out with.

What do you like best?

I started using Boomerang as a read receipt tracker and also use it frequently as a message snoozer, either to snooze an incoming message for a later time or to schedule send a message at a later time/date. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't have any dislikes, though I think they need to keep up with the new gmail features that are effectively cutting into their niche. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Message scheduling, snoozing, and read receipts when necessary. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It can be very buggy. Many times it will not pull in my calendar, or it will pull different times than those which I add. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Such a great feature! I love being able to schedule emails, as well as circle them back to the top of my inbox. It also gives you options, like you can send something the next day, or you can send something in the next hour. The "boomerang" feature, where it takes something to the top of your inbox is the most valuable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I really do not see any downside to using this product. It's helped my workflow so much. The only thing I would enjoy with this feature is perhaps a folder where all of my drafted emails are stored, something that is a little more obvious and organized. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to read emails, and be reminded of tasks needed at a later date if necessary. I also work late hours, because its something that I enjoy. However, I don't want my team to know I am working late, to avoid creating a culture of overworking. This is a great way to be able to schedule my emails to go out firs thing in the morning, instead of the time that I actually draft up the emails. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Read receipts and the ability to put multiple layers of actions on emails that get sent back to me. For example, I can program an email to be sent back to me next Tuesday morning at 9:00am, only if they don't reply, with a note that says exactly how I should take next steps. Very useful in a busy business development environment!

I also love the AI "respondable" feature, I really feel like it's influenced how I write emails. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Only that competitors are starting to imitate features and offer them for free. For example, Gmail now has Schedule Send which was one of the reasons I originally got Boomerang, but now I have it on Gmail for free... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

make sure you keep adding value add features like "respondable meter" or gmail is going to just offer everything you do for free eventually Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Boomerang I'm able to send emails at appropriate times for people who are in difficult time zones, e.g. I can schedule an email reply to send at 9:00am Japan time even though I'm in New York. In terms of benefits, I do feel my emails have gotten a higher response rate and I have more meaningful conversations with my clients thanks to Boomerang. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Boomerang helps me to manage emails more conveniently from the web. I can schedule an email according to my requirements. The meeting schedule feature is also very good I can easily share a meeting from the Gmail account. Follow up feature is also great if forgot some to remind another person. The installation of the boomerang was also very easy. It has bot new features to pause Inbox from receiving the email. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I love how boomerang allows you to send emails back to yourself at a later time. I also love that it allows you to send emails at a scheduled, later time and date, to others. Boomerang serves as a great reminder service as well as a calendar reminder. It will also "nudge" emails that have not gotten a response or been opened by the recipient. If you nudge it it will boomerang the email again, if you do not nudge it you can dismiss it and it gives the user no notification whatsoever Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Boomerang can act up sometimes. It is also an extension for gmail so sometimes it will randomly leave your computer and you will have to redownload it. If you want more than 10 a month (emails to boomerang) you will be required to pay more in your business package. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would say that boomerang should up the amount of "boomerangs" you get in a month. I think it would also be helpful to request a "sent notification" on more sensitive emails as boomerang can have a fluke from time to time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Boomerang helps me stay on track and keep up with emails that I need to reference later or need to go out a later time. It serves as a great reminder for myself, other members of my team, and anyone else I need to reach out to. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I'm able to schedule messages and set easy reminders for myself.

I often work odd hours, so I'll find myself responding to an email at 10 or 11pm. I don't want to set an expectation that I can be reached at all hours or that I work 24/7, so if I do write an email late at night, I'll just schedule it to send in the morning of the following day.

Similarly, if I catch an email right away that I can respond to, I'll schedule it to send 10 minutes later, so that my reponse-time is set at a reasonable rate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

You get a schedule to send features in your inbox which is cool. You can pause the delivery of emails, and you can get notifications on emails that were not answered.

Boomerang for Gmail offers a few features that should be integrated into Gmail but are not. It adds a schedule sending feature, can delay the arrival of emails, and bring back to the top of the inbox old emails that have not been responded to and need follow up.

What do you dislike?

It does not offer more than a few features, which is fine, but there is not a lot of additional services provided by this extension. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Boomerang for Gmail is worth it! Definitely check it out if you need to schedule emails or have email reminders come into the top of your inbox. If you need more features than this, it may be worth exploring some other sort of email marketing software, as Boomerang does not provide any additional features other than this.
