FollowUp.cc is a dead simple email reminder service that helps me keep on track and stay organized. The premise couldn’t be simpler. If you need to be reminded to followup with a client in a week you would just send an email with the details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can set the time when you want to be reminded by choosing the email address that you send to. You’ll automagically get your reminder email at the appointed time. You’ll even have the opportunity to snooze on the reminder email, thereby having FollowUp.cc send you another email at your newly specified time.
The screenshot above is actually from my Gmail account and shows several of the different followup.cc emails I’ve used recently. I’ve basically stopped using task management software and use my Gmail account for everything. FollowUp.cc gives me the ability to be reminded about everything I need to do without cluttering up my inbox with countless messages to myself.
Have you used FollowUp.cc? How has it changed your workflow?
