Imagine this – you call a company to purchase a new software tool that will help your company by leaps and bounds. You have just a few questions, though, before you feel confident about presenting the idea to your boss and colleagues. When you call, you have the opportunity to speak with a wonderful salesperson who helps you get the best answer to your question. The salesperson also mentions that they have a guide that goes into further detail in answering your question. They commit to sending to you shortly after the call. You are very pleased and hang up the phone ready to receive the document and present the idea to your boss.
Minutes go by. Hours go by. Days go by. You never receive the document. Continue reading

With a new, minimal, mobile-friendly followup design, better calendar integration, email-based actions and a quick followup shortcut, we are happy to say that your inbox is about to be a better place to get stuff done.
We’ve been busy these past couple weeks with some improvements. You may have already noticed some of them. Here are the highlights!
Scheduling followups for yourself is great. But being able to quickly set followup reminders for others can mean huge productivity gains.
And so, we’ve decided it was time to make some improvements to how the ‘cc’ feature works.
Who says email makes a bad to-do list? …or a bad project management system?
Email is still the fastest way to delegate a task. It may not work quite as well as a project project management system or to-do list. But it’s fast, it works, it’s mobile and, hey, you were already in your email, so why not fire off that simple request.
The problem is that once you hit ‘send’, there is no way of tracking whether it gets done! Unless, of course, you enter it in your calendar, project management system, to-do list, or [insert overly-complex external system here].
Now, tracking email-delegated tasks can be done within seconds
Last month, while none of us we’re looking, we passed 1,000,000 followups scheduled. Just writing that sounds crazy. When Reilly and I first built FollowUpThen, we had no idea it’d have such an impact.
While it was rewarding building something for ourselves that we loved using, the real reward is hearing from our users how much they love it.
To every one of you who has taken the time out of your day to provide feedback, report a bug or just give us a simple thumbs up, thank you. Seriously, your feedback, comments and questions have been invaluable.
