E-mail is one of the most delicate tools in which to introduce changes in the way we work. Since it is one of the most used and on which our products depends to a large extent. But that does not mean that we have no options to contrast to improve the way we work. Today we are going to see one of them. Alto Mail, an interesting web alternative to email management for the freelancer.
This is an mail that we will manage via the web.
Simply identify with the account so that we automatically have our inbox in Alto Mail.
Alto Mail, a much more visual tray organization
The first thing that stands out of Alto Mail is the stacks or heaps of mail.
It is a way of grouping the emails we receive to make it easier to manage them.
By default, we have some such as emails that contain an attachment, those that have an image.
But we can create the ones we decide based on our priorities.
For example, we can create mail stacks with the most important customers we have.
In this way, each time a new order arrives, it will demand attention in a more visual way.
Since when we have a new message in one of the heaps, it automatically goes to the first place.
Or does not appear on the list of pending emails in the tray and only do it in batteries, although this is configurable.
Enhanced searches to find all the information
More efficient searches, one of the best Alto Mail solutions
Finally, a question that I liked a lot during the time that I have been using this mail alternative is the search for mails with a great result. Where for each search term we will offer a small summary, with the latest results.
In addition, we can search within emails that contain images and those that contain attachments through the Alto mail.
Also when we create a search, respond to a mail or open one of the piles of emails, a tab is created at the top.
Hence, it will allow us to have the search open, while we write an email and we have opened a stack of emails of attachments, for example.
Multitasking with mail is much more agile.
Finally, we will have the option to enrich the contacts synchronizing with our Facebook, Linkedin or Twitter accounts.
So we will have more information about the contacts we have on the agenda, which can help us not to miss any important details which we have to be aware.
Alto Mail is now available on Google Play for free and is compatible with Android devices running version 4.0 or higher.
At the moment, it is only available for Android, and in the next few days, the version corresponding to iOS will be announced.
|Android version||from 4.0.3|
|Download it at||Google Play|
However, using Alto Mail does not imply giving up our way of managing mail.
We can continue using the Gmail interface or have it configured in Outlook.
However, I have to admit that it has some things that really make me much more comfortable.
Now I waste less time in email management.
