I send a lot of emails to people who are in my JibberJobber database. It’s kind of a pain (read: it takes more than 4 seconds) to get their name, and then their email address, to compose a new email to someone.
I asked my team to make it a one-click process, and this is what we came up with:
From the Detail Page of your Contact, if you have an email address, there is now a little icon that you can click that will start the email:
When you click the email**, it takes the first name, last name and email address, and puts it in an email message (with whatever email client you use: AOL, Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.):
BONUS: I just saw this, on a Company Detail Page… cool!
I know, we are only saving you a few seconds. But this has been a pain for me, and when I’m sending a lot of emails it helps the process go quicker. Pain solved.
In reality, this is one of those little tiny things that saves time. A few seconds here, a few seconds there, makes the system more painless and more usable… right?
** NOTE: you have to go into your browser settings and designate what happens when you click on an email link. Here’s a generic google search on it… here’s a search to do it from IE, FF, Chrome, Safari …. you might have to do your own Google search to figure out your own browser.
