This post will show you how to turn on the Lab: Undo Send
This one is particularly important to me mainly because I have a tendency to jump the gun and send before proofreading. Undo Send will allow you to undo a sent message up to 30 seconds after the user hits send. Here is how to set it up.
- Click settings from the drop down menu
- Scroll down or search for Undo Send in the Labs section
- Enable Undo Send
- Click save changes
- Click General at the top of the settings page to select the time interval that undo send will operate in.
- Scroll down until you see the Undo Send settings drop down and click time of cancellation period
After clicking save changes, messages will now delay sending to recipients for the allotted interval up 30 seconds. At the top of the screen in Gmail the image below will appear directly after you click send.
Click Undo to undo send.
