As a small team, we use email as an informal to-do list. Somebody might email me to ask me to do something, I will either flag it, note it down somewhere in another app or use something like Boomerang to re-send it to me later.
This process makes it easy to miss things, clutters up inboxes and is prone to error.
This application is a central mailbox that allows you to add items to others’ to-do lists and manage yours by email.
Every day (at a time of your choosing), your to-do list for the day is sent to you by email.
You can add items to your own to-do list (or others’ list) by sending an email to the team’s mailbox:
Ask @Dave to call the client on Wednesday
On Wednesday, the item will appear in my daily to-do list email. I can defer it by replying with something like this:
As me about #2 again next Thursday
or reply to say I have complete the task
#2 is done, this client will meet us on Friday.
at which point it is removed from my To-do list and the person that created the task is informed that it is complete (and it’s resolution).
The idea is to allow teams that are still dependant on email to manage it a little better.
Any feedback or criticism is more than welcome!
