A series of Salesforce, Google and Cirrus Insight weekly tips
Welcome to a new series of tips. Each week will be providing you with some helpful Google Apps, Cirrus Insight and Salesforce guides to help you customise, navigate and use these tools effectively.
To kick off the series and find out how to activate the Gmail preview pane, here are some helpful instructions.
The preview pane

If you often rely on the message snippets to figure out which messages to open first, you can now preview messages in your inbox using a feature in Gmail Labs called Preview Pane.

To enable Preview Pane from the Labs tab, please follow the instructions below:

1. Login to your inbox and navigate to the settings tab located near the top right:
