As someone who usually sends out dozens of emails out a week, it’s a little tough to keep track of who opens my emails in Google Apps. Having to double check with recipients to see if the email was received can be time consuming and take some effort on my part. Being able to have a quick way to see if my emails have been opened would save me time in the future as well as help me keep better track of the status of the emails I have sent for the week.
Unfortunately, Google does not provide any way for me to see who opens my emails in Google Apps. But I added a tool called Flashissue to my Gmail account to help me if my emails have been read.
Flashissue’s inbox tracker is a tool that will allow you to instantly add tracking to your Gmail emails.
When Flashissue’s inbox tracker is in installed, it applies open tracking to emails sent through Gmail that will allow you to keep tabs and read receipts. You will be able to see if your email has been opened by the recipients.
It’s an easy way to make your Gmail account an email tracking tool.

Here’s how I use Flashissue’s inbox tracker to see who opens my emails in Google Apps:
*Flashissue’s is a Google Chrome app so you’ll need to have the Chrome browser installed*

Flashissue should be installed and work on all of your Gmail accounts.

View Tracked Emails
You can check your tracked emails by going to the “Tracked Emails” label found on the left panel of Gmail.
Here you will see that your tracked emails are color coded.
The way the inbox tracker works, you are given a color label (gray, yellow, green) that shows if your email has been opened by everyone. To better understand the meaning of the colors, please see below:
These colored labels allow you to quickly decipher if your email has been read by all of your recipients.
And you’re done. It’s that easy.
