Sometimes you might want to make it look like you’re sending an email at an entirely different time of day.
This could be for any number of reasons:
You are working on a weekend and don’t want your team to feel like they need to do the same.
You want to reply now to cross it off your to-do list, but would prefer to make it look like you’ve waited a few days.
You want someone to think you’re at your desk at 0800 when…you may not be.
Most email apps have a ‘schedule’ or ‘send later’ function.
In Gmail it’s this:
- Click the down arrow next to ‘Send’
- Choose ‘Schedule Send’
- Pick the date + time you want
Now just sit back and relax.
