I must admit that I had a difficult time coming up with some pithy angle to this app (the other contributors are a tough act to follow). It’s not cute or fun, but it is really practical. So I’m going to go with the straight-faced, utilitarian approach to introducing you to this app (this post gives me a rest from having to be hilarious all of the time).
With that said, let me introduce you to EmailTriage, from Dale Lane, a plugin for your Outlook that, according to Dale helps “triage the emails. The application adds a context menu to emails that lets you create a new To Do item in Outlook Tasks, or a new diary entry in Outlook Calendar.
So if someone sends you an email asking you to do something, with one tap you can create a new To Do list item, pre-filling it with information from the email.
And if someone sends you an email about an event or meeting you need to go to, with one tap you can create a new Calendar item, prefilling it with information from the email.”
I’ve tried it out and it delivers the goods. One of those apps that is so simple, yet so useful.
Gosh, not being funny is a real challenge!
