It’s never easy for busy professionals to tame their growing email inboxes. Incoming messages demand attention through the day and wreak havoc on recipients’ schedules. Thankfully, there is a way to deal with email while maintaining your sanity, and improving your productivity too — and it’s called ActiveInbox.
Built for use with Gmail and based on GTD principles, ActiveInbox lets you add actions to email messages, as well as organize them into a handy to-do list that follows a schedule you set, based on due dates and your own availability. You can even group messages into folders for easy reference, and stay on top of your email and projects all at once.
ActiveInbox is the perfect way to rein in your overflowing inbox, because it gives you back control of the time you spend acting on emails. By scheduling messages to show up only when you’re free or only when a reply is due, you won’t have to look at an unsorted stream of messages and feel pressured to respond when you’re not ready.
Using ActiveInbox’s clever features for acting on incoming and outgoing emails can help you achieve Inbox Zero and remember to follow up on messages you need a response to. This app was featured in ‘Why we use email for everything and how we can be better emailers‘, our roundup of email tips and tricks.
Get things done without losing your mind, by ordering the Lifetime Plan for ActiveInbox at TNW Deals. Originally priced at $239, you can get it here at just $99 and activate two Gmail accounts (including 1 Google Apps for Business account), and never be overwhelmed by email overload again.
