Send emails as attachments - Propose a new meeting time or add a note to calendar invites in Gmail
January 13, 2020
Starting sometime after January 13th, 2020, Google is adding two new features:
The ability to attach email messages to a new email without downloading them first
The ability to propose a new meeting time or add a note to calendar invites from Gmail
Attach email messages to a new email without downloading them first.
To insert emails in a new thread, drag and drop them into the draft window.
Another way to insert emails in a new thread is to select the emails and then from the overflow (three-dot) menu select “Forward as attachment”.
Sending emails as attachments allows you to write a summary email message to your recipients, and attach the set of supporting emails that recipients can directly open in their mail client.
Propose a new meeting time or add a note to Calendar invites from Gmail.
When you open a Google Calendar invite in Gmail, you’ll see a new “More Options” dropdown menu, allowing you to propose a new time for the meeting or add a note to your RSVP. Selecting either option will open the respective event section in calendar.google.com, where you can make those updates directly.
Note that this feature is only available for Gmail on the web at the moment.
