Enable G Suite Gmail Read Receipts (2019): Easy Guide

G Suite has recently changed the way how you can enable Read Receipts in Gmail. It is a lot easier now to get the settings to turn on Gmail Read Receipts after the update. In this post, I will discuss how you can mess around with this setting.

How Gmail “Read Receipt” Works?

While sending an email, you need to request Read Receipt from the “Compose Email” options.  When you send this email to one of your clients and he/she will be notified (on a popup) that you have requested the Read Receipt. Depending on your client’s action, you will get to know if your email was read or not. This is the easiest way to know if your sent emails were read or not before the receiver even responds to it. This feature is usually turned off by default so you need to enable it. “Read Receipt” has become one of the most important emailing features for the last couple of years.

  1. Visit G Suite admin page and log in using your email and password
  2. On the Admin Console, click on “Manage App’s Settings”
