AwayFind Makes Your Email Management Even More Productive with New Features
    We’ve mentioned AwayFind here before at Lifehack, which is one of the best tools you can use to “lifehack” your email. Today the service amped up its lifehacking skills with the arrival of AwayFind Recommendations — and they’ve also unveiled a way for you have the best of the service…for free.

    For those of you unfamiliar with AwayFind, here’s what the service does for you and your ever-expanding email inbox:

    AwayFind is a web application that finds and delivers timely email messages. When a timely message arrives in your inbox, AwayFind will send an SMS, “push” notify you on your iPhone/Android, or even call, IM, or DM (Twitter). You can also use AwayFind to route messages to your co-workers.

    AwayFind Recommendations

    With the latest addition to the AwayFind service, users have a recommendation engine in their toolbox that bases priorities on both history and current response rate. Essentially, you can filter through all of your emails and discover who matters to you most — and you can do it right away.

    Why is this so critical to productivity and email management? Considering that the most frequent people you correspond with amounts to less than 2% of the emails you receive, it’s counter-productive to have that small percentage keep you on “inbox alert” all day long. AwayFind Recommendations frees you even further from your inbox with just one click.

    In the image below, you’ll see that an “Add” button appears next to those who you commonly receive emails from. Just click on that button and you’ll get an alert via text or our app when that person emails you. Because AwayFind is able to tell you just how frequent — and how recent — these people have emailed you. Figuring who to pay attention to immediately has never been easier.

      Additionally, at any point you can change your list with AwayFind’s iPhone & Android apps or Chrome/Firefox & Google Apps extensions. The recommendation engine will also send you updated recommendations when those who are important to you has changed, generally every few weeks or months.

      Secondly, AwayFind has now implemented a feature that lets you level up the service even if you’re not at a point where you can upgrade to one of their premium plans.

      Now when you invite your important contacts (like those recommended through AwayFind Recommendations, for example) and if they sign up for AwayFind you receive instant, unlimited alerts between each other. Even better, when they sign up, your contacts get unlimited alerts from you as well, allowing you to help them become more productive with their email. It’s a real win-win.

      What’s Stopping You?

      AwayFind has helped numerous people get through their day without being tied to their email — in fact, I’m one of them. Being able to get an important email from my wife or from a client without having to sift through my inbox or check email more than twice per day has been something that has not only improved my productivity, but has helped me get the important work done. With these latest features, AwayFind gives you even more reasons to give the service a try to see if it can do the same for you.
