I snagged this screenshot of today's Snapchat edition of the Washington Post. This will be a super cool function for the things you want to keep on the DL. However, one of the things we love about Gmail is the ability to drag up all the emails between you and a client or co-worker to look at your message history. So enjoy this function, but use wisely.
Most computers don't need this anymore, soo we've come up with other uses for defragging.

Maybe you have a small business. Maybe you’re doing research, and you need to know which emails were opened and which were untouched. In this case, you might turn to third-party email tracking solutions.
Most of these are paid services with monthly subscriptions, but some have free basic plans, too. These third-party trackers offer more features than your regular free email client.
Get Notify-notifies you of the date and time your messages get read,
Mailtrack-Mailtrack's free version offers unlimited email tracking, but your emails will be tagged with a Mailtrack Signature.
Streak- You can track 200 emails a month, which should be plenty for personal use.
Are people reading the e mails you are sending?
If you are a G Suite subscriber, you can turn on read receipt requests via the G Suite Admin Console. Go to Apps >> GSuite >> Settings for Gmail, and then click Advanced Settings. Here, you can scroll down to the Email Read Receipts section, where you’ll find this wordy option: "Allow email read receipts to be sent to all addresses in my organization as well as the following email addresses." Switch it to “on.”
With this option on, you can click on the lower right down arrow on your Compose window to request a read receipt for the particular email you're writing.
A little nerd fun :)
This plus your phone camera= a few minutes of fun with artificial intelligence.
My how things change!
I wanted to add tips to help mitigate embezzlement since last week I touched on the subject:
Deposit daily and reconcile monthly: loose cash is too tempting, and
reconciling the bank statement each month helps catch any irregularities early.
Keep track of petty cash. The money in a cash drawer can prove to be too
tempting for some employees.
Require that all petty cash transactions have a
petty cash slip or log to support them, and require two signatures on petty
cash refill checks.
Give employees separate financial duties otherwise known as “checks and
balances”: For example, the employee who writes the checks should not be the
employee who reconciles the bank statement or cashes the check.
Manage by walking around: let employees know that you are keeping an eye
on things around the company. Do not go searching through employee lockers
or personal items; just be watchful for changes or unusual activity.
Make sure that employee travel is supported by appropriate paperwork.
In the spirit of learning new and interesting things, here is a list from the nw3c of warning signs to look out for while being vigilant of employee fraud or embezzlement:
An employee who refuses to take vacation time can occur because they are
afraid that theft will be detected while they are absent
An employee who continually works overtime
An employee who wants to take work home
Excessive personal spending, like a new car or trips, by an employee whose
income cannot support this kind of spending
Petty cash disappearing quickly
Extravagant expenses during employee travel
Employees with personal vendor relationships (Keep watch for employees who
often lunch with vendors, or who are related to hired contractors)
Depleting office supplies at unusual rate
It is always interesting to learn new things!
