Supercharge your inbox and feel empowered to tackle your work day with 4 new features: starred emails, offline mode, custom snooze options, and message template previews.

Often the noise and clunky workflow of email gets in the way of personal productivity. Whether you’re in the office, on your commute, or working from home, we get how critical it is — and how amazing it feels — to be in control of your inbox.

That’s why we’re introducing a suite of features to supercharge your inbox and improve personal productivity in Front so you can feel empowered to tackle your work day.

Give important emails a star ️⭐️

Want to mark a conversation to reference later, or remind yourself of an important email that needs your attention? There’s no longer a need to create an “urgent” personal tag; all it takes is one click to star a message and find it later whenever you need. Starred emails have a dedicated place in your personal inbox for quick access.

Work from anywhere with offline mode 🏡

With offline mode, you can now send, draft, archive, and tag personal emails from your Front inbox — regardless of your wifi connection — and all your actions will be saved when you reconnect. Finish that last task on your to-do list on your commute home, or jot down a quick email while taking a mid-day break off the grid.

Snooze on your schedule 💤

Your time is precious, and some messages are more pressing than others. It should be easy to keep track of which conversations need to be revisited. Snooze allows you to get to inbox zero for the time being, and you can rest assured that the email will pop back up after your chosen snooze time is over.

Now, you can customize your snooze menu to fit your work schedule. Add snooze times and give them a title, like Tomorrow, This weekend or in 30 minutes so you can handle emails when you want.

Preview & write message templates as you draft 💻

Message templates give you head start to write emails quickly, but what if you could easily create them and preview them as you’re drafting emails? Now you can write an email and save the current draft as a message template right as you’re composing the email, or preview a saved message template before you use it.
