GooToDo – a remarkable To-Do list tool.
I don't often get terribly excited about new software or services.
But last night I retired my old To-Do list software and started using GooToDo.
It is a web-based tool and very simple. Just add tasks for the days when you plan to do them. Re-order them if need be. Mark them as completed when you're done.
Pretty ordinary, eh?
But it has one more feature that is simply remarkable.
You can forward emails to your To-Do list.
So if I receive an email from a client today, which relates to a project I am working on next Tuesday, I simply forward the email to that date. How does that work? In my Outlook (or any other email service) I click the Forward button and address the email to email@example.com ...and send it.
Their server looks at the "from" field in the email, identifies my account and adds the email to the day or date specified. The email subject line becomes the name of the task.
Or let's say I get an email from a software company saying my subscription is going to expire in 90 days. Well, I don't want to pay them 90 days early. But nor do I want to forget. So I forward the email to a date about 85 days from now. I simply forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'm done.
Pretty cool eh? It means you can clean up your inbox and forward items to the days and dates when you actually need to address them.
Maybe you'll receive a newsletter on Tuesday that relates to some personal interest of yours. No time on Tuesday to read it? Simply forward it to Saturday.
It's cool. And it's also a great way to manage your emails and increase your personal productivity.
