Adding the Gmail extension:
- If you are signed in, navigate to the integrations segment. This can be found by using the drop down menu by your profile picture and selecting the “integrations” tab.
- If you do not see the Gmail integration available, you can go here (this will take you directly to the google workspace marketplace).
- If you are an admin in your workspace, you can choose to enable this for all devices (admin install), or you can choose to download for your personal use (individual install). As a user, you can only download under the individual install. Go ahead and choose which option you would like.
- Be sure to give the GoLinks app permission in order for the extension to download and work.
- You will then be redirected to sign into your Google account. The following permissions will need to be granted to GoLinks:
- View your email messages when the add-on is running
- Run as a Gmail add-on
- See your primary Google Account email address
- See your personal info, including any personal info you’ve made publicly available
- Once installed, the new extension will appear on the right sidebar in your gmail along with all other extensions.
Using the Gmail extension:
- When you send and receive emails, you can now easily access all go/links within that email thread. This can be done by first selecting an email thread you would like to find go/links from.
- Within the email thread, select an email in which you would like to find any go/links in or from earlier messages. Keep in mind, if you choose an email earlier in the chain than where the go/links was included, it will not appear in the extension.
- With the email open, click the GoLinks logo – this will open the extension tab.
- Within this extension tab, you will be able to view and open any of your company’s existing golinks that are mentioned within the email thread. These are all clickable links that will take you directly to that designated golinks.
