Manage Your Inbox.
Do you hate a crowded inbox as much as I do?
If so you need to check out followupthen.com.
It’s my favorite productivity tool that I have purchased so far this year.
What does it do?
It’s purpose is straight forward. It offers a simple way to resend yourself an email at a certain time, so you can delete it out of your inbox and avoid overcrowding.
So if you get an email that you don’t need to reply to for, let’s say a week, you simply forward the email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can then delete the email and it will be resent to you in exactly a week so you can take whatever action needs to be taken with it at the appropriate time.
It’s not just for emails you receive either. You can send yourself reminders on specific days. Lets say you have a dentist appointment next Tuesday and you want to send yourself a reminder on Monday. Just create a regular email with a note reminding you about the appointment and send it to Monday@followupthen.com and you will get the reminder the Monday before your appointment. You can also integrate mails with your calendar to ensure that nothing falls between the cracks.
How does it work?
You can learn more about it by watching the video below. It has helped me increase my productivity as I’m not spending time scanning my inbox looking for emails. It has helped me become more organized and keeps me on task to get more work done in a shorter amount of time. I highly recommend it.
And although they poke fun at people that have sticky notes stuck to their computer screen, I still say sticky notes are one of the greatest inventions of all time. Not ready to give them up just yet.
