Here’s some good news for the Woodpecker users who work on Gmail. We’ve just launched an improved version of the Woodpecker Chrome Extension. It lets you manage your Woodpecker campaigns directly in Gmail. But that’s just a start. Keep reading to learn more about why it is worth it to install it. Let’s get started.

What is the Woodpecker Chrome Extension?

We know that many of our users use Gmail at work. Many of them often find themselves jumping between Woodpecker and their Gmail inbox while managing the replies in their cold email campaigns. The Chrome Extension is meant to become a bridge between Woodpecker and the popular Gmail inbox.

The idea is that you can set up your email and follow-up sequence to be sent automatically from Woodpecker, and then go back to Gmail while still keeping the track of your automated campaigns.

What will the new version allow you to do?

The first version of Woodpecker Chrome Extension worked as follows. Whenever Woodpecker detected an open or a reply to your cold email campaigns, you would get a notification right in your Gmail inbox. This way, you could act immediately whenever you saw reactions to your campaign.


The first version was very simple because we wanted to start small and work together with the testers to find the best direction for further development. We had a list of ideas for the new functions of the extension, but we wanted to get feedback and perhaps collect some fresh ideas, coming directly from the users.

The new version is the outcome of that. Now, you can mark interest levels directly in your prospect’s response. When you open the reply of your prospect you have an option of marking the interest level as well as seeing which campaign they come from. Seems pretty good, right?

Who can use Gmail Chrome Extension?

The extension will work in your Gmail account only if you use the Google Chrome web browser.

The Woodpecker Gmail Extension is available in the Chrome Store for any Woodpecker user to download.
