Pros: In recruitment, you seldom get just less than 20 emails per day. If you did, well you're lucky! It is a bottleneck to get things done in recruitment if you're speaking of email commitments such as sending email blasts for next week, or sending turn down to a candidate you just interviewed after a week or sending a candidate for final interview a day before his set schedule. We resorted to using sticky notes before, but it is unsuccessful because sometimes sticky notes are not that too sticky and they fly away, and there arises complaints of being unprofessional from candidates we failed to give an update. With Boomerang, it resolved that problem because instead of pending that responsibility and jotting it down to a sticky note, you can just do it now and pend it being sent to whatever day and time you would want it to go out. With Boomerang, we have successfully met 100% compliance in sending out turn down emails, notification or reminder emails, and office-wide campaigns easily.

Cons: I like everything about Boomerang. Maybe what I least like is the price, and why I just learnt it a year ago. If only, I heard about this when I started my career in recruitment, everything should have been a walk in the park!

Overall: Overall, Boomerang has been an angel for me. Without Boomerang it will be hard for me to keep up with my commitment in getting back to candidates, and letting them know what they need to do or where they need to proceed a day before their interview. I get a lot of awards and thank yous from candidates and they see our business as very responsive and professional because we never failed to update them regarding their next steps or whether or not they got the post.

Pros: - delayed emails

- an ability to edit/delete/reschedule your already scheduled emails

- very easy to install and use

- its not expensive

- an ability to schedule particular time when you would like to read your emails (I know this feature exists, but I have never used it)

Cons: - an unpaid version has a very limited number of emails per months that you can use, which is not going to be enough for sure. So, I can say that the software isn't free.

- doesn't sync with an email box in the phone (boomerang software needs to be installed and used independently from your phone's email application)

- design

Overall: I have been using Boomerang with my gmail account, and it has been working great. To be honest, it gives me so much of flexibility since I tend to work a lot during non-standard work hours. I have also being using it a lot to advertise events and send reminders about them (I would schedule all upcoming reminders all at once, so that I don't have to think and remember about them later).

The only downside of this software: if you want to use it on your phone, it won't work automatically with your email app that you already have. Boomerang has to be downloaded separately; and whenever you want to use it, you would need to write the email through that actual app (not through your email application on the phone). It is not a big deal, but it may become confusing if your email box is dealing with a lot of different email that are normally sorter in a gmail box, but are not, unfortunately, sorted in the Boomerang app.

Prepare your emails beforehand and let Boomerang do the rest.

Pros: - I s possible to prepare your emails in advance and schedule them to be sent according to the callendar.

- There is an option that allows you to know if the receiver opened your email, and it can notify you if they have not opened it in a set period.

- You can request the receiver to acknowledge that they received it with a button.

- Once you scheduled it to be sent you can modify or cancel it.

Cons: - When you just installed it once you have finished and scheduled your email when you press send latter it freaks you out because it asks you for permission to be set but it freaks you because you think you have lost your message, I think once you install it that should be all no more permissions asked.

- This is not a con but I would like to have the possibility to create a survey form to be sent.

- Is only for Gmail.

Overall: I think is a must have in all business owners and people that have to have constant communication, it allows you to set up everything event to plan your week on the emails that have to be sent and allows you to work with ease on overseas accounts as well as increases your visibility because is easier to check emails that you receive in the morning, than the ones you received during the night increasing your chance to be noticed.

Pros: It's easy to use. My inbox is one of my to-do lists, so why leave something there when I know I don't need to do it, respond to it, or act on it for days or weeks? Boomerang lets me bring that email back whenever I want



Boomerang is especially great if you're managing a team these days. In the ways I've used the tool, it meant that I got great at answering emails (used the boomerang feature to pop something back up in my inbox after a certain time) and my employees stopped chasing me for answers to things.

Most importantly, it made me better at respecting my employees time. I write emails with to-dos or follow-up items late at night and schedule them to drop in employees' inboxes first thing in the AM, instead of showing them I'm emailing them at 11 PM.

Cons: I don't pay for it - so I often run out of free credits for the month. Other than that, I think it's perfect.

Pros: The tool is simple, there aren't a ton of features, so it's easy to use it for what it's built for. It does a great job at making sure I don't forget about an email that needs to be responded to, but doesn't need a response right now. The other great thing about it is that bayden does this program called "Revive your inbox" that really teaches you best practices about how to manage your email program. It has changed me from creating layers and layers of folders and spending a bunch of time filing emails that I'll probably never need again, to someone who can use the search feature in gmail to find what I need whenever I need it.

Cons: It can be easy to create a backlog of boomerang messages in your inbox. Too easy to put off that follow up you need to do.

Overall: The benefits are far greater than the costs. It really helps me keep after people when I need to get something done.

Pros: The tool allows you to schedule when emails will be sent. This allows me to set and forget emails (to be sent at times of my choosing) and opens up my band-width to tackle other tasks while knowing that the emails will be delivered at a time when my recipients are most likely to respond. I also love the ability to "boomerang" emails for which I was expecting replies, but didn't get, so that I can follow up from my side. This removes the need for me to remember whom I had mailed last week and helps me intelligently follow up.

Cons: I find it occasionally annoying because when I load my gmail, boomerang has to load via the google chrome extension and it slows down my Gmail. The 'pause' button feature does not work well - once you pause an email from a recipient, I have struggled to unpause the email which is odd.

Overall: Productivity, Diligence

Pros: Ever have a feeling that sending the business proposal at 3 in the morning isn't the right thing for the "corporate image"? Ever thought that you need to have client think that the 5-minutes complete job is a complicated 2-hours endeavour? Then this brilliant piece of software is for you..

It can also "boomerang" the e-mail to your in-box in a few hours or days, so you will get the fresh reminder exactly when you need, without those strange letters cluttering your mailbox.

Very very good productivity tool

Cons: Well, you need to pay for it to get all the small bits and pieces. But monthly rental also gives you the "return receipt" function for your e-mail (you will know if your e-mail was opened 50 times before the company replied to you) and other practically unlimited functions.

Overall: Really great productivity piece.

Pros: Tracking reads and link clicks are a big part of what makes Boomerang great, and I do like using those features on occasion to get insight into how my external messages perform. The biggest benefit I see, though, is in using the scheduling feature. Boomerang has dramatically improved my success rate in getting timely responses to my emails just by virtue of letting me time messages for when the recipient is likeliest to get it at the top of their list. I've even gotten a few compliments from people surprised that I was active and emailing at unusual times and days. Truth was, I wasn't working at all; Boomerang just made it seem like I was really on the ball.

Cons: Minor complaint, but the UI in the Gmail application really doesn't look very nice. There are also a couple of issues with button and field placements potentially leading to misunderstandings. I would recommend reviewing your activity carefully so that you're sure that what you're attempting to do is actually done.

Overall: I use Boomerang to schedule emails with international contacts all over the world. It makes my life a lot easier knowing that I can get important messages into their inbox at times when they are most likely to be active in their inboxes. Being able to track opens, link clicks, etc. also helps me to understand how productive my outreach is proving to be, which is nice.

Pros: I use my inbox as a 'to do' list--until something is addressed, I leave it in my inbox. At times though, I am waiting on another person or want to revisit something in a few weeks without starring at it every day until then. Boomerang allows me to do just that--with the click of a button, I am able to ensure that emails wind up back in my inbox and, with a clean inbox, I can focus on what really needs to be addressed now.

Cons: Boomerang works by almost forwarding the email back to your inbox. Thus, with gmail, you might have a thread of emails (the original one and then the one from boomerang). Once you get used to this though, it really is not a problem at all.

Pros: I was missing the ability to schedule messages to send later that was possible with Microsoft Outlook. My current employer uses Gmail as our platform and I had to draft an email and then send later. It was taking too much effort, thus came Boomerang. I can now work as late as I want, but send all the emails the next morning. It really helps me stay on top of my work. I can also schedule messages to send later if they aren't important right away. This is one of my favorite workplace tools.

Cons: Occassionally the software glitches, but it is very rare and a quick refresh is all that is needed.

Pros: I use Boomerang to help manage my personal and work-related email accounts. It's been a massive help since I started using it . I used to let dozens of emails pile up so I wouldn't forget about them, but the ability to send them away and have them return at a later date is invaluable. I also love being able to schedule follow-up reminders for myself by scheduling sent emails to return later if they don't receive a response. The "responsible" feature that rates the quality of your email using AI is pretty neat too.

Cons: Can be a big buggy sometimes when verifying that I'm logged in, but nothing that hampers usability.

Overall: Returning important emails to my inbox at a later date, reminding myself to follow up with people by scheduling the email to bounce back to me if they don't respond.

Pros: I used to mark as unread threads of email that I need to keep track on, with boomerang you can just select the amount of time you want to wait until an answer if you don't get one by that moment boomerang will let you know, that's an excellent feature that cleans my inbox.

Also a great feature is that you can schedule emails to be sent later, so if you are working late you don't have to worry about bothering others at inappropriate times.

Read receipts are also great so you don't have to ask for an email to know if someone read yours, especially if you don't need an answer in particular. People can also opt out, but in that case if you boomerang that message you will still keep track of it.

A thing I find great is that whatever email you need to keep an eye on gets on your inbox, I usually forget to look at things or special places (aka click on special folders, labels, etc), this way I don't miss a thing!

Cons: As for my concern I haven't found any flaw on this tool! I know there might be some cons but for what I need its perfect and I got used to it in less than a minute.

Overall: declutter my inbox! such a nice thing to be able to concentrate on what I have to do at a moment, a not to have 20 emails on my inbox just to not loose them.

Pros: I really enjoy that I can send emails at a predetermined time. Personally, when I need to send out multiple emails, but don't have the time to do so in a short span, I like to use boomerang so that I can write them out in advance and not have to worry about it in the future

Cons: The interface is definitely something I would change about the program. It works well within gmail, however, the software often brings me to a secondary page or there are popups for no reason.

Overall: With Boomerang, I can schedule emails in advance, providing an enormous convenience in furthering my career.

Pros: What I love about Boomerang is that it allows me to focus on now and just deal with other emails and reminders later. For me, I also love the scheduled sending of emails. I bet I offset 10 times the amount of a subscription by just how efficient and time saving it is for me.

Cons: I wish Boomerang had some kind of AI in it to remind me when a boomeranged email has been missed.

Overall: Boomerang allows to make my communications with customers, staff, and suppliers appear to come during a set schedule, which allows me to communicate effectively and clearly with all stakeholders.

Pros: I have been using Boomerang to schedule emails for as long as I have been doing business. The best thing about the Boomerang plugin is the fact that it allows me to easily and very quickly schedule emails, it has saved me a lot of time over the years that I have been using it. It does exactly what it claims to do and I have never faced an issue whilst using the software.

Pros: What a find when I learned about Boomerang for Gmail. Having the ability to schedule an e-mail to send at a later time means I can do an e-mail when I think about it and schedule it to be sent later. Great for sending reminder to people or even yourself. Having messages come back to the top if you don't hear back has been a very useful feature. With all the e-mail I get, it's hard to keep the ones I need to followup with visible in the inbox.

Cons: Limited number of message credits on the free basic plan. That is okay if you don't use a lot. Pricing for personal use is a bit much if you don't use it heavily

Overall: I've never had a scheduled message not be sent. The ability to keep track of important e-mails that I haven't received a reply for has been a lifesaver. A great app to help keep you on top of your game. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to stay ahead.

Pros: Boomerang was the perfect Gmail Add-on. When I installed in 2017 it had features I had never seen before. The Email scheduling tool was terrific, and the reminders worked flawlessly.

Cons: On the other hand, in the new version of Gmail the reminders are built in, and I have heard that the email scheduling tool will be added later. Despite this news, I have continued to use Boomerang because of its simplicity and current feature set.

Pros: What I like most about boomerang is that allows me to schedule emails to be sent at specific days and time. By this way, I can work on weekends if I want, and schedule the email to be sent along the week in a very convenient time zone.

The have a free account, which should be enough for some scenarios.

Pricing is not that expensive.

Cons: I'm currently using G Suite and Free boomerang account which allows to send 10 mails per month. That's short for me, and I will have to jump to PRO plan. There is a Personal plan which costs less money, but does not support G suite.

Overall: I don't want my customers to know that i'm currently active on weekends. This app helps me to schedule emails and send them during the week. This frees me from having to deal with their answers and, in this way, complicate the weekend.

Pros: Boomerang has been a lifesaver for me.

My favorite features are;

Pause inbox - Sometimes I just want to find some info on my email real quick without being sucked in to the tunnel of unread emails, and what better way than to pause all incoming mails?

Send Later - I can schedule when I want an email to go out.

Boomerang if no reply - Sometimes I send an email then forget to follow up when there is no response. Boomerang now has my back.

Return Conversation to inbox- For when I want to respond or work on something later.

Cons: At some point the Boomerang Respondable feature just stopped working, can they bring it back?

Overall: I am able to manage my emails and time better.

Pros: I love boomerang for gmail. I use it all the time if I'm going away on vacation and want emails to be sent out while I'm away. I send out volunteer reminders and schedule them out ahead of time using boomerang, too. It's also nice to use the boomerang feature where you can have an email sent back to your inbox if there is no response. This helps me follow up with volunteers and coworkers on projects I'm trying to keep moving forward and reminds me when I need to keep something moving that I thought I passed off to someone else.

Cons: I do like that you are able to edit your future outgoing emails, but I don't like them being saved under a boomerang tab on gmail, it makes it hard to find, and I wish they could be saved in a more customized label.

Great addition to Gmail!

I used Boomerang on a trial and now use it daily.

Pros: The set-up is super simple and usage almost as simple. It's now integrated into our processes.

Cons: The functionality could be better - we have several use cases in which we cannot use Boomerang.

Pros: It was easy to use and navigate. There isn't much to this software but what it can do, it did well enough. I like the boomerang feature where it reminded me to follow up. Since things can get hectic and I forget to shoot an email to a client, this takes out the guesswork.

The open and click tracking seem to be pretty reliable in their accuracy, which is a pleasant change from many other tracking software I've used in the past.

Cons: First of all, the opens are sent back to you as emails which can result in a flood of emails in your inbox, especially if you had sent a good number of emails. This isn't very pleasant. There are ways to work around this but it can be annoying.

Secondly, I can't say that the Respondable feature was very helpful. It seems like there is much more work to be done to it to make it 'effective'.

It has made my email management more convenient, specially on emails that I shouldn't miss sending.

Pros: It's main functionality that enables you to schedule your emails to be sent through at a specific time. This is very important to me cause I tend to be forgetful when it comes to sending follow-up emails. So using Boomerang to organize schedules when my follow-up emails to be sent through has been really helpful to me.

Cons: None that I can think of at the moment. Ive been very happy using this service for quiet sometime now.

Overall: It has been making my email management system more efficient.

Pros: I work crazy hours but don't necessarily want my clients to know that. With Boomerang, I can be working late at night and schedule my emails to send in the morning instead. That enables me to work when I work best, without having to play catchup the next day.

Cons: The free version is somewhat limited, but that's my only complaint!

Overall: This tool really is a life-saver. It helps me keep my professional work boundaries. If I email clients outside of my business hours, I give them the impression that it's ok for them to email me anytime they want. I also don't want to bother them outside of their work hours. So it goes two ways. Scheduled emails and reminders are a brilliant combo. I feel like it should be built into Gmail, but until then...Boomerang gets it!

SO helpful!

Pros: This tool is great at helping you remember to respond or follow-up on emails! It gives you credits each month which will allow you to "boomerang" an email to yourself. This has been helpful for my job as a recruiter and keeps me on top of responding to emails you may have otherwise forgot to follow-up on.

Cons: While there is a free version with a few credits per month, you do have to pay if you want more or unlimited credits.

Overall: I've only used the free version of Boomerang but it's been amazingly helpful each time I've used it.

Pros: I really like products that are all encompassing, this helps get there. I hate having 5 or 6 programs hopping between all of them. With Boomerang I can schedule appointments and meetings right from my email. It has access to my calendar to see if I am free/busy and I can book it right there.

Cons: One more thing to install. I'm not a huge fan of add-on software, but this one is worth it.

Pros: most

- You can pause when to receive emails. This allows me to truly be able to unplug at night.

- You can schedule emails that need to go out at certain times (holiday notices, sale events, e.g.)

- Reminds you to reach out if your recipients have not replied. this nudge to follow up has really helped me save sales/projects and close deals.

Cons: least

I wish there were a few more features and it certainly takes some time to get used to. I found that I was sending and receiving more emails until I became more efficient.

Overall: overall

If you don't need a full marketing tool and or fully automated emails, this is probably the tool for you. However, if your needs are outside of its narrow, niche, scope, though, you might want to look elsewhere.

Pros: Boomerang is a super-duper simple email organizer. As a inbox zero fanatic, if I can't act on it, I boomerang it until I can. Lazy clients get their emails boomeranged if they fail to reply. Bad clients gets boomeranged if they're too needy. It's wonderful.

Cons: We stopped using boomerang because our CRM software can do the same things as boomerang, and cost slightly more.

This product is exactly what I had been searching for!

Pros: As a director working with a lot of parents and staff members, I don't like seeming accessible on weekends and evenings, and therefore never responded to emails until Monday morning. This app changed that, and I love it! I can now respond instantly, but have it be sent later, so my inbox is clear on Monday morning!

Also great for emails that need to get sent at a specific time in the evening, I can do it before 5pm and schedule it for hours later.

Cons: this add on works so well for all my needs!

Pros: My favorite feature is the ability to have an email reminder sent to the top of my inbox if a contact hasn't responded to my email within a certain time period. I can set a boomerang for 2 days, a week, 2 weeks, etc. depending on when I want to follow up. Boomerang will automatically send me an email after that requested time period. I never have to worry about forgetting to follow up with a contact again.

Cons: Sometimes it's a little glitchy, wherein my original email will sometimes disappear from the folder I've filed it into if it gets Boomerang-ed back to me.

Pros: It's a really niche add-on for my gmail inbox, but so so helpful. With it, I can easily schedule un-responded to emails to return to the top of my inbox after a certain number of days, or have my emails go out at a later date -- which is super helpful if I'm doing client outreach, job hunting, or PR work.

Cons: Sometimes, when I want to use it, it has to open up a new window to start up, then takes awhile to load -- it's not just on my gmail browser at all times. It'd be great if it worked or loaded a bit faster.

Overall: Great, simple tool. I won't do email without it.
