Reduce your stress

Focus on your work, instead of worrying about your emails, by turning Gmail into your task manager.

Never forget to do an important task

With ActiveInbox, the emails become the tasks. The actioned email will then be tracked by ActiveInbox, ensuring everything important eventually gets done.

Make people reply to you

When you need a contact to do something, you can track it as Waiting On and stop worrying about it for a few days.

If it stays blocked, you can then easily dive into your Waiting On list and chase them up.

Ensure things happen when you say they will

Give the email a due date and Gmail will remind you on the day, ensuring you always impress your contacts by responding when you promise you will.

And you can prioritize important emails by dragging them higher up your task list.

Move projects forward

Get a fresh perspective and see Gmail as a handful of goals, rather than feeling overloaded by 100s of little emails, by using project folders in Gmail.

Quickly empty your inbox

ActiveInbox tracks tasks even after you remove them from the inbox, and adds special buttons to clear your inbox faster.

The beauty of achieving Inbox Zero is knowing that you've seen everything important, thus freeing your brain from worrying about nasty surprises or forgotten tasks.

Waste no time knowing what to do next

Now you can now declare a list of To Dos for emails, so that when you come back to an email you know what to do next.

And you can attach a Note to each email to summarize info that will be useful as the conversation continues (including links to related information in other systems).

Strengthen your relationships with reminders

ActiveInbox helps you write better replies by automatically showing you previous emails and outstanding tasks for a contact.

Also, you'll find treating emails as tasks naturally improves communication with co-workers and clients!
