Gmail Widget

This article aims to provide you with information about the Gmail Widget and how to customise it

What is it?

The Gmail Widget shows you the most recent emails (in Gmail). When this widget is displayed on a Page, the emails that will be shown will be specific to the visiting user. This means that other users will only be able to see their own emails as opposed to other users’. 

Prerequisites

Before you can add the Gmail Widget, please make sure that you have authorised/enabled the Gmail integration. If you have not yet done so, you can see our article for instructions. 

Gmail Widget functionality and options

The Gmail Widget displays your most recent emails. The number of emails being presented can be adjusted to your preference (with no maximum). 

Note: If you set the widget to display 50 emails but the user viewing the widget only has 40 emails in their inbox, only 40 emails will be displayed.

Emails that have not been opened are labelled as New

By clicking on one of the emails, a new tab will appear directing you to that specific email in Gmail. 

You can also open Gmail in a new tab by clicking on Open Gmail at the bottom of the list.
