  6. 6. Gtriage automatically labels Important! email.
  7. 7. “Gtriage does exactly what it says it does - identifies your most important emails. It just works, with surprisingly few errors.”- Juan “Great work to whoever built the algorithm. Very accurate considering it's AI. Using it for a few days now and happy with it.”- Keven “Before Gtriage I would always miss important emails despite my complicated label structure. Gtriage is smarter than me and marks my important mails as Important, wherever they may be.”- Sean “Spent about 10 minutes training it to recognize my important emails and it's already saved me hours and hours of sorting through messages.” - Gabriel “DoesGtriagework?”
