Gmail is one of the most popular cloud-hosted email services. Here are some tips on tracking Gmail with Yoke:
Gmail users who primarily use the web-interface will be able to track unread items in multiple accounts using Yoke. Yoke allows you to control whether or not you would like to see mails categorized as Primary, Social, Promotions or Updates.
Note: You need to be signed into all your Gmail accounts to jump from Yoke to your Gmail message or search.
You can use the 'star' feature in Gmail to mark messages that require a well thought-through response, and track starred emails as a Yoke card. This helps you quickly get your unread message count to 0 and process the starred messages at your convenience.
