很久以前翻到的一个 GmailScript

如题所示,这是我很久以前不知道从哪里找到的一个 Gmail Script,原地址请戳:

Script

这个 Script 的意思是自动找出你邮件中没有收到回复的邮件并给他们加上标记以便你处理,原作者是这么说的:

Ever send out an email but got no response? Some people (myself included) aren’t great at email, and they just need a small nudge or reminder. I use tools like Signals to get notified when someone opens an email and FollowUp to send myself reminders to follow up, but I wanted something more automated.

大意是说他/她不擅长邮件管理,经常不知道怎么处理自己邮箱中那么多的邮件,而且就是经常有那种双方畅聊甚欢然后突然对方来了个一个“我去洗澡,你等我会”,然后你回一个“好的”,然后就杳无音讯的情况;或者是给某个德高望重的老教授发个邮件结果教授象征性地把邮件打开后就直接随手垃圾箱解救无知少年的情况,于是博主找了些软件来帮助自己找出这些得不到回复的邮件并把他们 统统拉出去喂鸟 归类,但是效果并不理想,于是博主发挥了程序猿的优良传统决定自己写一个脚本来做这个事情,于是就诞生了这个 Gmail Script。

The script periodically goes through your email and finds messages between 5 and 14 days old where you were the last person to respond. Basically, the goal is to find messages where a follow-up email would be appropriate.

说的很清楚了,找出那些没有回复的邮件。

How to install

  1. 首先你得登录你的 Gmail(虽然作者没写)。
  2. 然后到 Google Script 里创建一个新的 Script。(这些 Scirpt 是存储在你的 Google Drive 里面的)4129b85bgw1ecthempccej20zk0m8ae7
  3. 然后从作者的 Github 上复制他写好的 Script,作者说了,你还可以更改分类方式等元素。4129b85bgw1ecthguw4x7j20zk0m8n2e
  4. 然后粘贴到你刚才新建的 Google Script 的空白页面上4129b85bgw1ecthhz01yyj20zk0m843u
  5. 设置一个执行时间,点那个时钟按钮4129b85bgw1ecthiwd261j20zk0m8439
  6. 然后保存,作者还用黑体字标出来了
    Make sure to save your work!

剩下的就是坐收渔翁之利了:

You’ll now have two new labels in your inbox that you can check and do stuff with. If you want to keep those top-of-mind, you can add the “No Response” label to your main inbox. Just go to Settings > Inbox > Inbox Sections, and add the “No Response” label:

inbox-config

然后作者还解释了一下为什么不用 FollowUp 和 Boomerang:

As Chris Keller later pointed out to me, FollowUp has a Chrome extension that will auto-populate the BCC field for you, and I assume Boomerang has something similar. I wrote this script before I knew that, and I think it’s a better choice for me because:

  1. It works on emails you’ve already sent.
  2. It involves no third-party services. Your email stays put.
  3. Each user has code-level control, in case they want to go nuts.

Some emails I send are sensitive, and I’d rather not forward it to a third-party service if I don’t have to. However, those sensitive emails are often important, so I need a way to remember to follow up.

大概就是后来得知有个 Chrome 插件可以达到同样的目的但是作者出于自己的才是最牛逼的的认知原则决定用自己写的 Script,并给出了三点理由:

  1. 可用在已发邮件
  2. 不涉及任何第三方服务
  3. 代码级控制

我补充第四点:

逼格高

最后:

懒是第一生产力!!
