Important: If You Use Gmail...

If you’re using a “tabbed inbox” system in Gmail, here is a quick update to ensure you see all the exciting and transformative offerings you’ve requested from The Shift Network.

Google has split your inbox into three separate inboxes and created tabs across the top labeled Primary, Social, and  Promotions.

Virtually all emails from bloggers, other websites, and people you subscribe to are lumped into the “Promotions” tab  automatically... where you may not see them.

And unless you choose otherwise, much of the valuable content you’ve specifically asked to receive will also end up under the Promotions tab by default.

Easy enough!

By the way, if you want to totally turn off the tabbed inboxes (which I did, because I don't want anyone else screening the emails I’ve asked to receive and I don't want to keep having to check multiple tabs), just click on the Settings “gear” image at the upper right corner of your inbox and select “Settings.”

Click the “Inbox” tab and uncheck ALL of the categories except “Primary,” then save your changes.
