This blog is my attempt to share information with faculty, introducing new apps, websites, or other snippets of information that may be of use to faculty. I am also using it to keep track of projects I'm working on that might be good to reference in the future.

Gmail - Get back that email you just sent

Have you ever sent an email and then realized you forgot to attach that file, or didn't include everyone everyone you needed, or just remembered you wanted to say something else?  

Well, normally you just have to send another email to explain your error.  Google has come up with a nifty 'Labs' tool.  If you go into settings, Labs and choose 'Undo Send', and Enable it, you will have the option to retrieve emails you just sent - before anyone can see it.

Basically what it does is 'delay' the sending of the email for a few seconds, and if you click 'undo' you will stop the email from sending, and it will open back up in the editor window.  This is a very cool utility that you may find useful.
