Public Beta: Email Drop Box

Earlier in the week we opened up the email drop box concept for public beta. What this means is that you can now interact with your WORK[etc] account, simply by sending an email.

For example, if you are out and about and think of an important task, simply fire up your smartphone and send WORK[etc] an email. WORK[etc] will receive that email, understand your request and go ahead and create the To-Do.

Some scenarios available in this pre-release:

  • Create a To-Do for yourself and others
  • Create a new event or meeting in the calendar, for multiple people
  • Record an expense
  • Create and invite people to participate in a new project

After we have a few weeks feedback on the drop box, we’ll be adding in the following scenarios:

  • Create a new contact via email
  • Create and update a sales lead via email
  • Attach emails and documents to contacts via email
  • Any other cool concept that are suggested.

Read more on how to get using the drop box. And as usual – please post any feedback on that forum

This is going to be a massive productivity improvement for everyone (me included!)

See all
