Chrome Extension


1. Getting the extension

In chrome, go to the Dodoname chrome extension in the chrome store and click to install it. Once installed, the Dodoname icon will appear in your extension icon menu.

2. Login/Signup

Clicking the Dodoname extension icon will open a popup window, allowing you to either login or sign up. Once you have logged in, you will see that the icon changes to full colour and the popup window shows “Dashboard” as well as “Create Email Address”. You may also log out from the popup window too.

3. Dashboard

Clicking on the Dashboard link will open up the in-extension dashboard web page. Within it there are sections for email addresses and received emails.

4. Creating Email Addresses

Click on “Create Email Address” in the dashboard or in the popup window. In either case, a new email address will be created for you. You may (at this time only) click “cancel” and the email address will be recycled into your account. Once created, you may share the email address just as you would any other email address – it is now active and able to receive emails.

5. Managing Email Addresses

Click on “Manage Email Addresses” in the dashboard. Your email address are “active” (they can receive emails) or “inactive” (when you set them thus, they will not receive emails until active again). Also, any email addresses that have not yet received an email are called “unmatched”. In this screen, you can see all types of your email addresses. For each email address, you can click the pencil icon to edit it. You can add a description, set whether they send push notifications (if you have our mobile app) and/or whether they send notifications via your regular email address, when they receive emails for you. You may also trash your email addresses if you no longer want to use them ever.

6. Viewing Emails

Click on “View Emails” to see your emails. For each one, you can view them by clicking on them, trash them using the trash icon and/or favourite them by clicking their star icon. You may also select several emails at once and apply those actions to them in bulk. You will see that emails are collected by “sender” to make it easier for you to see what senders are sending to you.
