BombBomb's Chrome extension allows you to track the emails you send through Gmail. This article will show you how to turn tracking on or off for an individual email, as well as how to change your default tracking settings and notifications.
Watch this video or keep reading below to learn how!
Turning tracking on or off for an individual email
Click the "Compose" button to open a new email. Hover over the BombBomb logo in the lower right corner. Click the "Tracking" option on the left.
If the icon is a lighter gray color, the tracking is turned off; if the icon is a darker gray color, the tracking is turned on. This will turn on real-time notifications, as well as show up in your tracking feed in Gmail and in your Dashboard tracking section of bombbomb.com.
Your tracking feed
Your tracking feed in Gmail will show you when a tracked email has been opened, a video has been played or a link has been clicked. If none of these actions have been taken, the email will be grayed out.
If you'd like to hide your tracking feed in Gmail, simply click the double arrows to the right of "Tracking." To re-open the feed, click the arrows again.
Managing your notifications
To manage your notifications, click "BombBomb" in the top left corner of Gmail, and select "Options."
Here, you can toggle your real-time desktop notifications on or off. You can remove the Tracking feed by toggling off "Display Action Bar." And you can set your defaults for whether email tracking, reply with video, and snippets are enabled.
Turning your tracking feed back on
If you've turned off your Tracking feed and would like to turn it back on, right click on the BombBomb Chrome extension in your url bar, and select "Options." Toggle on "Display Action Bar."
