The Email Game is a productivity tool for Gmail / Google Apps.
It is pretty common within the third sector to get a great deal of correspondence, and it is also common for ‘the communications department’ to be just one or two people or even just a portion of one person’s time. The Email game gets you to smash through the unread items in your inbox and uses positive reinforcement and gamification to do so. Basically it makes going through those 50 emails in your inbox a much quicker process and less of a bore.
