Can I schedule an email to send at a later date and time?

Gmail introduced a new feature allowing you to schedule emails to send at a later date and time (up to 49 years in advance). Here's how to get started.

To schedule a email

1. Sign into Gmail account using your CatID. Then, click on "+Compose".

4. If you choose to pick your own date and time, click on the calendar date you would like to send the email and type in the time. Click on "Schedule Send" when you are ready to send the email. 

To view or cancel your scheduled emails

1. After scheduling an email, you will see a new folder called "Scheduled" in the left menu. Click on it to see your scheduled messages.

Scheduled Maintenance

Saturday, December 4, 2021 6:00 AM to 9:00 AM

IT-AIS will be conducting patching efforts to multiple production infrastructure databases and application services, primarily those responsible for CatID services, on Saturday, December 4, 2021 from 6:00 AM to 9:00 AM CST. This will result in a three (3) hour window where UNI users will be unable to log into Blackboard (Bb) Learn, Panopto, and other systems using CatID credentials.
