This app understands how you really want to use email & to do lists

This new app knows that there’s a blurry area between email and to do lists, so they squeeze the most productivity out of both that they can.

Productivity can be a bear

An inbox full of emails you’ve kept hanging around as reminders just so you won’t forget to check up on projects tomorrow, next week, and next month is enough to drive anybody crazy.

So stop using your email inbox as your personal to-do list and sign up for FollowUpThen. Let this clever service remind you in five minutes or five months or five years to contact your latest sales lead, wish your great aunt a happy birthday, or order your significant other some anniversary flowers. And probably everything in between.

Learn the lingo and you’re good to go

FollowUpThen works with any type of email account, so just by providing FUT with your email address, you’re ready to get started. It’s recommended you begin with the free trial of FollowUpThen to see if the program is right for you before committing to a $2-$9 per month yearlong contract.

After you learn the FUT lingo, the service itself is extremely easy to use. Simply type a FUT address into the “To,” “Cc,” or “Bcc” field of your outgoing email and FUT will take care of the rest.

For example, if you don’t need to respond to a certain email until Tuesday, send your email To and the email will disappear, then show back up in your inbox on Tuesday. Respond to a client’s email and add a FollowUpThen Bcc with and you’ll be reminded to give your client a call in two hours, and no one will ever be the wiser. List up to 15 people in the Cc field and everyone will receive a followup, yourself included.
