Good Morning Everyone,

I hope that you all enjoyed the beautiful weather this weekend.  This week I've got a great Gmail tip for a tidy inbox, Apple news, and an app/extension that will help keep you connected on the go.  If you have any questions, let me know. 

SU Tips and Tricks

Gmail - Show If Unread for Labels
If you organize your inbox using filters & labels (which I hope you do), this neat trick can help you keep your label list organized and neat. You can set any of your labels to only show in your list if they have an unread message.(You can set up filters to skip the inbox)  This can help keep your inbox tidy and more organized.  Click the link for a quick video demonstration of how to set this up in your inbox.
Apple WWDC This Week
The Apple World Wide Developers Conference is this week, and there is sure to be lots of exciting news.  If you want to stay up to date on the latest and greatest, you can watch the livestream right from Apple at the following link.  Lots of tech blogs will have live streaming commentary as well.  No time, no worries.  I'll have a full breakdown of the news next week.
Google+ Hangouts is an extremely useful application.  You can install the app on your mobile device of choice to chat/video call your Gmail contacts. You can also install the extension in your browser so that you can access you chats/video calls even if you aren't in Gmail.  This is a great tool that is very versatile in its uses.  Click the link for more information and install links for Google Hangouts.
