When Should I Use Gmail Label and Email Sharing?
Gmail Label and Email Sharing allows you and your team to collaborate on emails without ever leaving Gmail. Here are three ways you can use the tool to collaborate with your team:

Whenever a new lead comes through the pipeline, add it to the label, and it will instantly appear in their inbox.
2. Internal Custom Workflow
Many businesses use custom workflows to manage and stay on top of projects. You can create several labels such as:
