Is Gmail ‘Hiding’ Your Swiss INSEAD Alumni Association Event Invitations?

Some alumni haveGmails-new-tabbed-inbox-scrennshots reported that event invitations are not arriving in their inbox. If you’re a Gmail user, it is probably because the invitations are being automatically filed by Google into your Gmail “Promotions” folder. (See screenshots to see how the tabs appear on mobilephones).

Gmail is set up to organize all your incoming email under three tabs: ‘Primary’, ‘Social’, and ‘Promotions’. Invitations and reminders typically get filed under “Promotions”. This is similar to what a server does or email programme (e.g. Outlook or Thunderbird) do when they automatically shifts emails based on content or sender into a Spam folder.

If you have not seen an email invite from us in a while, try clicking the Promotions tab. If you need any further assistance, send us a note [email protected]

PS. You can turn off the Gmail tabs feature. It’s very easy. See instructions on How to Remove Gmail Tabs
