G Suite – Declutter with Filters

Are you overwhelmed with the amount of email you receive on a daily basis? If you use Gmail; use filters to separate high priority emails and those you can catch up on later.

Step 1: Create a label.

Go to Settings (hint: the gear icon on the top right).
Click the Labels menu item (hint: it’s next to General).
Scroll down the page and click on the Create new label button.
Name your new label; for those that need my approval, I use the label “Approvals.”
Click Create.

Step 2: Setup a filter to apply the label.

In Settings, click on Filters and Blocked Addresses menu item.
Select Create a new filter.
In the “Subject” section of the form, enter “Needs Approval” (but you can use any keywords in place of this to use as a filter).
Select Create filter button.
Check Skip the inbox and check Apply the label and choose the “Approvals” label.
Select Create filter and you’re done!
