25 Apr 17 Yet another Gmail Meter redesign (with a couple extras!)

Last June, we moved the legacy Gmail Meter off of the Google Apps Script platform which required a complete rework of our tool. We decided to coincide this with a complete redesign of the interface. Today, we will be releasing another major update to the Gmail Meter interface. While our plans initially were to simply get the interface more in line with Google’s material design principles, we realized this was also a great opportunity to incorporate a couple of features...

24 Aug 16 Gmail Meter now supports send-as aliases

It has been some time since our last blog post - our apologies for the delay, but we wanted to take the time now to share some great news! First though, I wanted to start off with a bit of a history lesson on Gmail Meter. The legacy Gmail Meter was originally built off of the Google Apps Script platform (our personal thoughts on it here). The Apps Script platform was intended as a scripting language, maintained by Google, that allowed...

22 May 16 Sneak Peek at our New Gmail Meter

The immediate feedback in the two weeks since we released our new email report is, “Where are the rest of the statistics? What happened to the detailed report, the one with graphs and charts?” Please rest assured that while we’re not quite ready yet, the new web interface with detailed metrics will be coming very shortly. Instead of just taking our word for it, we thought everyone might enjoy a preview of what we’ve been working on (in addition to the email...

12 May 16 Uninstalling the Legacy Gmail Meter Script

Starting this week, we are officially ramping down support for the legacy Gmail Meter. Our most loyal readers should be quite familiar with our experience wrestling with the Apps Script version of our tool. This past Monday, we rolled out our new email report, marking the first release of the new Gmail Meter.

10 May 16 Prioritizing the Gmail Meter web interface

Yesterday, we quietly released our new email report for Gmail Meter. Pardon our lack of fanfare, but as you can see we decided to simplify the email report a bit. We narrowed it down to the four metrics that our users found most important, specifically sent and received emails, total number of Conversations, and response time. While this does limit the functionality of our email report, it was important for us to deliver an error-resilient product to our users as soon...

26 Apr 16 RE: The New Gmail Meter

We recently added a new notification to our signup flow. In fact, many of you reading may have even been directed here straight from that very page. If so, then you know that we are keenly aware of the current state of our Gmail Meter report. With some embarrassment, and a fair share of humility, we admit that our Gmail Meter script currently just does not work as intended. (If you’re curious of the reasons, we’ve previously written about our ongoing...

26 Feb 16 Why we’re Moving off Apps Script

If you’re a current user of Gmail Meter, you are might know that this month we got a bit more practice apologizing than we anticipated. And if you’ve contacted us about the error messages, you’ll know that these messages that a good portion of you have received are almost completely out of our control. That may not seem like the best response to these inquiries, so I wanted to take some extra time to explain what exactly is going on here. Google...
