Today the GMass team is launching a new email productivity tool called SearchMyEmail.com. It’s a free tool for bosses and their assistants.
I built SearchMyEmail.com for my own use and am now making it available to the world.
My team members all have the ability to search my Gmail account for information they need to be productive. I get a report of everything they’ve searched for and accessed, so I can rest easy that they aren’t snooping.
This is a solution to comfortably allow people access to your email account without having to fear that they’re searching for something inappropriate like “employee salaries” or “affair”.
For example, my bookkeeper might be working on reconciling my books and sees some Amazon charges, but doesn’t know what I bought. She searches “amazon” using this tool to see what I purchased.
It has personal uses as well. My wife often needs to know my itinerary for an upcoming business trip. She searches “expedia” in my account to get my flight info, so she knows when I’m in the air!
It’s much safer and less anxiety-producing than handing over my Gmail account password (never do that), because now I know what everyone is looking at, and I don’t have to be bothered with
