The Quick Links Lab for Gmail has been around for a few years, but it’s still an underused feature. If you frequently find yourself searching for the same email, then Quick Links might be the perfect Lab for you.

Quick Links lives inside your Gmail inbox, and can actually be found in the same place as Chat, directly below the label list. It’s a great place to store all of the emails, searches and settings links that you visit on a daily basis.

For example, instead of searching for ‘Exchange to Google Apps Migration’ and sifting through dozens of emails, I can create a Quick Link. We’re all looking for ways to save time in Gmail, and a Quick Link is a great tool to use.

    Thanks! I often found myself wishing there was a way to ‘tag’ my emails with different keywords. Although this isn’t exactly what I would like, this will greatly reduce my searching.

      I don’t believe so, it looks like they just stick in chronological order from when they were created.
