The Contactually team has been pushing forward: enjoying phenomenal growth, continuing to push out great product, and getting attention. We want to update you on new features we've released over the past couple weeks.
Zvi and the Contactually Team
Do you think Contactually is just a tool that automatically suggests people you should e-mail each morning? Think again. There's a whole lot more that's available to you to really power your follow-ups and networking. So we created a ~2 minute tour that will walk you through some of the key pieces of the system. New users are already seeing this, but if you're looking to know more about what Contactually has to offer, take the tour!
This is a great example of a user-driven request. Contactually can capture and remind you of contacts you should follow up with - but about what? We heard from a number of you that before you followed up with someone, you would see what your last conversation was about. In the spirit of helping you write better follow-ups, you now have the option of having Contactually store the subject line of your recent e-mail conversations. We'll add it to any follow up reminders, and store it in your dashboard. To enable this feature, go to your Settings page and check off "I want to be able to see subject lines from recent emails I've exchanged with my contacts."
At Contactually, we're all about workflow. We know you're in e-mail all day long, and you need your business tools to be there too. Contactually has always allowed you to update your contacts without ever leaving your e-mail client, and we've made it even easier. When we e-mail you in the afternoon with the contacts that you should update, you can click one button to open up your e-mail client, fill out what bucket each contact should be in, and take it from there! Turn on your Daily Wrap e-mails to get started, and view our guide to really unlock the power.
Outlook/Exchange Support - Does your company use Microsoft Exchange? We've started to roll out support for Microsoft Exchange, and we're looking for more people who want to test it out. Want to try it out?
Smarter Prioritization - Part of our secret sauce is helping you determine who you should reach out to each day. We're always improving our recommendations, including getting rid of e-mail communications with business tools, customer service, and coworkers. We're sticking by our mission of helping you follow up with the right person at the right time. Let us know how we're doing?
Insights and Analytics - Your e-mail is a giant database, storing incredible amounts of information. We already provide a lot of insight into who you're connecting with and when, and we're working on some great features to improve that.
