If you ever wanted to know the stats of your Gmail account, now you easily do it with a Google Apps Script tool called “Gmail Meter,” that gives you different types of statistics that will help you analyze your Gmail habits.
Gmail Meter developed Romain Vialard is a Apps Script, which runs on the first day of every month and sends you an email containing different statistics about your Inbox. With Gmail Meter you can:
Volume Statistics show you the number of important and starred messages, the number of people who sent you emails, and more.
Daily Traffic gives you an estimate of when you receive messages and when you send them during a given month.
Traffic Pattern lets you get a sense of your overall email activity over the past week.
Email Categories tells you how you are managing your Inbox. In the pie chart below, you can see that the majority of my emails are labeled.
Time Before First Response shows you how long it takes you to reply, and how long it takes others to reply to you.
Word Count tells you whether you are writing long emails. The example below shows that most of my emails are shorter than 200 words.
Thread Lengths help you understand whether you participate in long conversations resulting in long threads. Top Senders and Top Recipients help you identify who you communicate with more frequently.
Here are the screen shots of the aforementioned features in sequence:
To setup Gmail Meter:
“First, go to Google Docs and open a Spreadsheet. Click on Tools > Script Gallery. Search for “Gmail Meter” and click Install. You’ll now see a new menu item called Gmail Meter on your spreadsheet. Click on Gmail Meter > Get a Report. You can then choose the type of report,” explains Gmail team. Preparing a report may take some time and you will get an email once the report is ready.
