How to use PowerInbox 101. Step 1: What to expect after downloading it

  • Question
  • Updated 4 years ago
how do I actually use this? I downloaded it but am not sure what to do now? Do I just wait until there's an email that's supported by powerinbox? I use rapportive and boomerang, so I expected to see some kind of button within Gmail and I don't.

Hi lukemd,
Thank you for reaching out. Since PowerInbox works on supported emails, you should see interactive content on the next email you receive from Facebook, Groupon, Twitter and more

You can also get a showcase email from us right now to check it out. Please enter your email address here to get it -

We choose to be as unobtrusive as possible, but would be great to get your feedback on what the right balance would be.

Like lukemd, I have wondered the same. I just took for granted that it would automatically work in the background. Occasionally i get a pop up notice that it crashed and I need to click the balloon to get it restored. Should I just uninstall it and reinstall to avoid whatever is causing this occasional crashes?

Hi Dan,
Can you try opening emails from LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook or Groupon? Thos should be interactive. Also have you tried opening the sidebar. You can enable it using the PowerMenu

Can you give us more info on the crashes. What email client and browser is it happening in?
Hope to have you as a happy user soon!
