Ever had a meeting canceled over email…but you missed it since you were already on the way there? You’re going to love this.
Today we’re excited to announce “People I’m Meeting Today” alerts. Whether you use Google or Outlook Exchange for your calendar, the setup takes all of 5 seconds.
You can configure it on the web:
You could also grab the latest iPhone app and navigate to Settings—>People I’m Meeting Today
It works automatically—there’s nothing to setup or think about.
If you and Keith are meeting soon and he sends you an email, that email will turn into an AwayFind alert (see first image above).
When you create appointments in your calendar, just note the full name or email address of the person you’re meeting with. (Calendar invitations sent over email do this automatically). This can be in the subject, body, or invitations area of the calendar appointment, but here’s an example:
AwayFind looks at your calendar to determine who you’re meeting with today (from the example above, it would look for an email from Bill Gates or Keith Ludlow or even Microsoft partnership).
If any of those people email within a few hours of the appointment, that email turns into an alert. You can specify the exact time period—from 1 to 36 hours. Here’s the email that trigered the alert:
So many ways this saves you.
AwayFind’s got you covered for when people email to…
- Say they’ll be late
- Change the location at the last minute
- Ask for you to bring something to the meeting.
You don’t even need email on your phone—we can send these alerts over SMS, IM, or even call you. Let us know what you think. And close your inbox!You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
