The benefits of turning emails into tasks

Never forget to do an important task

Standard Gmail gives you two options for getting emails done… Let them sink into the swamp of your Inbox, or tediously copy and paste them into another task manager.

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

Ensure things happen when you say they will

Give the email a due date and it'll be brought back to your attention, ensuring you always impress your contacts by responding when you promise you will.

And you can prioritize emails by dragging them up & down your task list.

Check that people reply to you

When a conversation or task is blocked because you need a contact to do something, you can mark 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 it up.

Waste no time knowing what to do next

Now you can now declare a list of To Dos for emails, to stay focused on what must be done.

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).

Focus on moving projects forward

Get a fresh perspective and see Gmail as a handful of goals, rather than feeling overwhelmed by 100s of little emails.

ActiveInbox makes it easy to use project folders in Gmail.

Strengthen your relationships

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

And, treating emails as tasks naturally improves communication with co-workers and clients.

Glide through your inbox faster

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

ActiveInbox adds special buttons that save you time while clearing your inbox.

Who is ActiveInbox for?

ActiveInbox is for people who want a lightweight solution to effectively manage their email, intuitively within Gmail. It particularly suits anyone who uses email for team management, sales or customer support; or for whom email is their daily to do list.

It's also for people who love Inbox Zero and GTD®. ActiveInbox began life as GTDInbox, and thus is built on the beloved principles of Inbox Zero and the best selling Getting Things Done®.
