Using OR statements in Gmail filters
Creating filters in Gmail is a great way to help manage and achieve a tidy inbox.
You can create a filter to perform useful operations such as categorising or deleting emails automatically.
Using an OR statement in a filter is sometimes a must. Any aficionado should have this in their tech toolbox!
(condition) **|** (another)
A good example of where I used a OR statement is filtering JIRA updates to automatically go to a special folder. The filter looked something like:
from:([email protected]) (person updated an issue) | (person created an issue) | (person assigned an issue)
The above filter will only apply to emails from
[email protected] containing the text either
(person updated an issue) or
(person created an issue) or
(person assigned an issue)
