How To Create Folder In Gmail
Initially, you already have two folders (shortcuts) that are created by Gmail. These folders are labeled as starred and important.
Important – there are the important emails that you’ve marked with the yellow icon similar to the yellow rectangle. In order to make the new inbox message important, click on the yellow sign next to the message.
Starred – there are the most important emails that you’ve marked with a yellow icon in the form of the star. To make the new email marked as starred, just put an asterisk next to the email.
To create a new folder (shortcut), follow these instructions:
Click on the gear icon at the top right.
Then click on “Settings” from the drop-down menu.
Click “Labels” tab, scroll down until you see “Create new label”.
Open the link, and enter a name for the new label (“work”, for example) and click on “Create”.
Then, your label is created and you can see it if you click on the “Circles”.
By the way, you can hide these folders, such as important, circles, etc. so that your mail can look more pleasant. Then you will see only the necessary labels that you created.
To do this, go back to the same label and next to the unnecessary folders, just select “Hide”.
After you created the folder, you have to know how it works.
For example, if you want to receive the emails from a certain domain (“email@example.com”, for example) to a folder that you created, then you need to open “Settings”, and click on “Filter and Blocked Addresses”.
When you open the tab, click on “Create a new filter”.
In “From” field enter: “firstname.lastname@example.org” and press “Create filter with this search”.
In the next window, choose “work” label, next to “Apply the label”.
At the end, just click on “Create filter” at the bottom of the window.
The mail from, in this example, email@example.com will be placed in the folder Work.
