Reduce Inbox Insanity: 7 Time-Saving Email Tools That Keep Me From Crying
Thanking someone for following you on twitter
Saving an email directly to Evernote
Adding receipts sent to your gmail directly to a google doc spreadsheet You’ll start realizing that IFTTT is so powerful that it’s almost like having your own personal assistant without having to interview anyone. Rapportive (gmail only) - I like to call it, “Proper stalking”. It’s a social media aggregator that pops up on the right side of your screen when you are emailing someone. This aggregator lets you connect to this person on Facebook, twitter, linkedin and such right in the email. Anything that keeps me from doing the things I’m going to do anyway is a friend of mine. Contactually - I think I'm about to start using this. If you are a freelancer or are someone who depends on having to find and cultivate new clients, Contactually might be for you. From what I gather and from what people tell me, Contactually automatically keeps your digital relationships organized and gives you suggestions on whom you should be following up with and when Sounds amazing. Coffitivity - This isn't an email add on but this has blown my mind. We like going to coffeeshops to work because: a) being around other people calms us b) Ambient noise is good c) You feel part of society c) The hot guy/girl we see all the time d) you think people think you’re bohemian for being at a coffee shop and therefore you think more highly of yourself regardless of whether or not you are actually doing work The problem is, we too often get caught up in other people’s conversations that we didn’t intend to. Relationships, businesses, god-knows-what else. Well now you can recreate the good of a coffee shop but keep out all of the ridiculous gossip seeping into your eardrums. The site puts on loop the sound of a perfect coffee shop, and when you join your music with it at a low level, the cacophony of sound turns into a symphony of productivity. Now, just like the giant coffee mugs in that favorite French cafe of yours you love so much: Tres Magnifique! ----- Were these helpful? What email tools do you use?
