How To Increase Your Productivity With Mailbox App

Mailbox was in beta in early 2013 and rose to huge success almost overnight. It’s waiting list had hundreds-of-thousands of people, watching the countdown timer reach you was fun! It’s marketing and product strategy was so successful that Dropbox acquired them just a month and a half after the initial beta release.

The premise of Mailbox is to “put email in its place”. While this is very subjective – everyone has different ways of dealing with email – it’s hard to ignore the overwhelmingly positive reviews of the product.

I’ve been an avid user of it since I first laid eyes on the invite-only page. I finally got my invite on April 6 2013 and I haven’t looked back since. In this article, I’ll share some of the useful features of Mailbox, as well as some of the drawbacks I’ve found.

Interacting With Emails

Mailbox stands head and shoulders above the rest in the way it allows you to interact with your emails. Only simple swipes are needed to archive, delete, defer or add an email to a list. No need to confirm the deletion, if you make a mistake, just shake your device (unless you’re using it on an iMac) to undo.

Mailbox even supports multi-touch. You can swipe three emails at once to the right to archive all three of them. It’s simple, and works remarkably well. Initially I had some doubts about the long and short swipes.

To archive, you need to swipe right. To delete, you need to do a longer swipe to the right. Seems like it would cause issues, but in my 20 months using it I’ve never mis-swiped. The long swipe kicks in about three-quarters of the way in and visual queues make everything pretty clear.

As I mentioned, deferring (swipe right) is one of the best features of Mailbox. When you defer an email, you can choose some preset times (later today, this evening, tomorrow, next week, etc.) or you can choose your own date.

Once chosen, the email disappears from your inbox on Mailbox on all your devices and also from your Gmail inbox. It is placed in a special IMAP folder and will be sent back to your inbox when the time comes.

A third option is to add an email to a list. Adding emails to lists work a lot like deferring, but the emails do not get put back in your inbox automatically. You can create any number of lists and add emails to them easily by swiping fully to the left.

Navigating The Views

At the top of your email list, Mailbox provides icons to navigate between your inbox, your deferred items and your archives. Switching back and forth is super-fast which is great if you want to take a quick peek at your upcoming deferred emails.

Swiping works in all of the views, not just the inbox. When you’re looking at your deferred emails you can swipe left to re-defer (I think I just made that up), or further left to add to a list. You can also swipe right to put it back in your inbox manually. Archived emails can be swiped right to delete or left to put them back in the inbox or defer them.

By tapping the hamburger icon, you can see a list of places to go. Spam, sent and drafts are available here as well as the lists section. While lists is a great feature, I don’t really use it to be honest. My goal with Mailbox is to minimize clutter not create it and if I start creating lists I will over-complicate things.

I usually use them to create an “Information” list. I usually only have 3-4 emails in there like upcoming flight details, hotel reservations and so on. This gives me easy access to essential information wherever I am, no searching necessary.

That brings me to another well-oiled feature: searching. I was never happy with the search in the default mail application, it never seemed to find what I was looking for. The Mailbox search works beautifully. To access the search, pull down your inbox below the top.

It seems like it searches within the cached emails first which means it brings up some results instantly. After a second or two, you see search results coming in from the server itself.

Advanced Features

Swipes can be customized to your liking. For example, if you’d rather archive by swiping to the left, no problem. Never add emails to a list? Set the long-left swipe to star/unstar messages.

One great feature is that you can set what the snooze or defer swipe does by default. You can choose to show the picker, or you can choose a preset by default. Workday start/end can also be set up which will control when you get emails deferred until tomorrow and the time until you get “later today” emails.

There are quite a few more options, I suggest cruising through the settings section of the application to get a better picture of what it can do.

The Badge Count

The app icon – on all devices – shows a count of conversations that you have in your inbox. This can be changed to show ‘1′ for new messages, but this sort of defeats the purpose. It took some getting used to since the standard behavior in other apps is to show unread messages.

However, this was exactly what I needed at least. I may well have 100 emails I’ve read, the question is, do I need to act upon them? By deferring everything I do not need to act on and keeping everything I need to act on in my inbox, I can use Mailbox as a task manager pretty effectively.

I assume that this would be an issue for some people. Unfortunately the only way around this is to either switch of the badge count or show ‘1’ for unread messages.

Mailbox On Different Devices

My biggest gripe with Mailbox was that there was no desktop version until recently. A while ago, the Android app came out which allowed our Android friends to use Mailbox, the iPad version came along as well, but the desktop version took its sweet time.

A few months ago, I received the desktop beta invite. To tell you the truth, it was a completely underwhelming experience – in a good way. Apart from interface differences due to a big difference in devices, the app is exactly the same. It looks great, it is great to use and I now have full cross-device Mailbox goodness.

One of my worries with cross-device support was that the syncing would be sluggish. Almost all apps I’ve used have had issues with good cross-device support. My favorite bad example is ‘Reminders’ which is possibly the worst application from a syncing point of view (and from a number of other views).

Thankfully, Mailbox seemed to have thought things through as syncing is perfect. It is either done behind the scenes or when you open the app. In the latter case, it takes about 3-4 seconds and you see it happening, so you know what’s going on.

The Downsides Of Mailbox

I think it’s obvious that I am a fan of Mailbox, but it does have some flaws. The biggest concern many people have is privacy and it has to be acknowledged that this is a biggie. Mailbox provides these features by standing between you and your email provider. This means that they have access to all of your email.

I think it is important to see both sides of the coin here. The reason that they can offer this service is because they do this. Sure, this does present a privacy concern but you always have the option of not using the service. I think it is important to know about this issue and make an informed decision about whether or not you want to share your emails with this company.

To many people, this is an instant red flag and they will not use the service and this is perfectly ok. Take a look at the Mailbox privacy policy (which is now the Dropbox privacy policy) and decide whether the app is for you.

The other objective issue with Mailbox is the badge count. If you want your badge count to reflect the unread message count and this is a dealbreaker, then the app is not for you.

If you’re into hardcore email organization and you have a bunch of tags and folders set up in Gmail with multiple custom rules, Mailbox is probably not for you. You could convert your work to Mailbox lists but if you rely on your rules heavily, it may wreak havoc on your workflow.

Conclusion

There is no doubt that mailbox is a highly focused, well written application which – if it suits your workflow – you will love.

On the other hand, it does force a specific email workflow on you which you may not like. I consider this a pro, but others may well consider this a downside. This, coupled with a privacy policy which some might consider a nightmare will put a lot of people off.

I suggest at least giving the application a try. Above all, for me, it has taken away the sense of urgency created by lots of emails in my inbox – it has given me peace of mind.

Enterprise Productivity Apps for Remote Teams


It’s an exciting time to be a designer. With almost unlimited connectivity, designers and firms can work together without needing to inhabit the same space. Many designers and web professionals love the ability to be mobile, and luckily for them, more and more companies, particularly startups, are starting to embrace a remote workforce.

Especially when outside of an office environment, staying on task and completing projects on a deadline can be difficult for even the more pragmatic creative. It’s essential, however, that both companies and workers are able to track progress and communicate effectively on a daily basis. It is also imperative that individuals can work as a team, even if they are hundreds of miles apart.

These needs have led to the emergence of some valuable productivity software and apps, in recent years. One part internal social network and one part project management software, these new apps allow everyone involved in a project to communicate and work together effortlessly, no matter where they are physically located. Whether you are a company owner who is trying to track and promote internal productivity or a worker trying to stay ahead of the game, an enterprise mobile app could ultimately be the answer for you.

Check out our roundup of the top 5 enterprise mobile apps that boost productivity, and unleash your potential.

Trello

If you’re looking for a great project management tool, Trello is a great option as it allows for anyone to create “Trello Cards” that can be assigned to different groups or individuals.

Trello

Trello also utilizes queues, so you can track a project from concept to completion. It’s easy to use and the design is on point, making for a user-friendly experience. Trello’s mobile app is among the least convoluted we’ve seen, making for a seamless transition from desktop to mobile.

SignEasy

A document signing app, might not be the first thing a designer thinks of in terms of helping productivity, but it is hugely valuable for employees who are working abroad, or freelancing.

SignEasy

SignEasy is a mobile, cloud-friendly software that allows clients, employees and higher-ups to sign off on documents no matter where they’re located. This eliminates the hold-up of receiving things in the mail – or the hassle of trying to find a fax machine anywhere these days.

Syncplicity

It’s immediately obvious that their mobile design team put user experience first when creating Syncplicity’s file sharing and management app. It’s easy to manage any files from the touch of your phone or tablet with Syncplicity’s sheet stack interface.

Syncplicity

It allows you to easily and securely send and share documents, as well as access them from any device, without missing a beat. When you have a team working on a large project with multiple files that need to be downloaded and uploaded quickly and effortlessly, Syncplicity is an awesome choice.

Sapience

Sapience is a mindfulness enterprise app that allows for proficient time management, ensuring businesses can maximize efficiency with both on and offsite employees.

Sapience

The app analyzes your smartphone usages and give you a clear visual on how your day was spent. It allows you to tag your phone calls, app-usage and work-related travel effortlessly. Sapience helps individuals and businesses see where they spend their time the most, so they can schedule and allocate budget appropriately.

Evernote

From your computer to your smartphone, Evernote allows you to seamlessly work on projects from initial notes to completion, and even presentation. Think of it as a super-hero notepad.

Evernote

It allows you to save inspiration from around the web, journal, take notes and work on full-length project – all in one platform. It is also a great organizing tool. If you are working on a number of creative projects at one time, Evernote will be one of your go-to apps for keeping everything on track.

Finished!

Everyone can always use a little bit of productivity push, and the apps above actually make it easier to go the extra mile. Give them a shot and let us know what you think!

Happiness Can Be The Best Strategy For Increasing Productivity: Here’s How

You can call it a secret, “life hack” or just common sense but happiness is the key to productivity. Being positive and satisfied can be one of the fastest and most effective ways to improve productivity in the workplace. Various studies have shown that you’re going to feel significantly less stress in day-to-day activities – in and outside of the workplace – from a positive change in attitude

via BreakingPic

Unfortunately for a lot of members of the workforce who spend their week behind a desk or counter, feeling happy and working productively don’t sound like they go hand in hand (even if they should). Take a look at the most stressed out person in your office, likely wasting time staring out the window, grumbling at the computer, or floating from desk to desk.

They can have an effect on the entire office’s productivity. The sooner he or she can destress, the faster you can get those productivity rates higher.

More on Hongkiat.com:

Removing stress from the office follows a simple formula: people who are not spending time stressed out and worrying have more time to be productive. Stress leads to wasted time and wasted energy, meaning an attitude adjustment can directly affect how work time is spent.

Choosing to Be Happier

While working towards a positive attitude is a simple idea in theory, anyone who has tried to adjust their personality knows that simply flipping a mental switch isn’t possible most of the time. A Mayo Clinic study shows that a person’s level of happiness originates from his or her personality and the people with whom he or she spends time.

This means that not only does spending time around happy people make you happier, but your own happy attitude can influence others.

Of course, the inverse is also true. Anyone who has experience in the workplace probably has seen this play out. Picking out the “slackers” in the building is often as easy as finding the table in the break room where the sarcastic complainers spend their time.

Their negative attitudes feed off each other, and can carry over well beyond break time, leading to unproductive hours spent at the desk. If you’ve ever had a job at which you were unhappy, chances are you – like me, at one point in my life – were spending time at the slacker table.

Make The Change

On the flip side, when you’re satisfied with your work situation, chances are that you’re going to spend time with others who share a similar outlook. The positive vibes shared at that new and improved break room table carry over when you return to the desk the exact same way.

Some other lifestyle changes that can help you become happier at work include:

Gratefulness

People who are happier tend to be grateful for the things and opportunities they have. This affects productivity by making tasks inherently more satisfying. The grateful feeling that accompanies success will help build a positive experience, making you feel good about investing more time in your work to achieve even more success.

Optimism

One way you can generate a better outlook on life is to maintain a positive attitude. Seeking the silver linings on even the tedious tasks that everyone has to do in the office will help you finish those tasks more quickly. Sometimes a positive attitude can lead to finding a new method for completing a monotonous task. For example, locating a new tool online or designing new workflow strategies can be the results of looking for a new outlook on old, repetitive tasks.

Finding A Purpose

To improve your level of productivity in the workplace, find work that is satisfying, which will naturally lead to a happier attitude in the office. Speaking from first-hand experience, it may take a few tries to find work that satisfies you. But don’t give up on yourself! Once you find a job where you’re able to see how your skills and tasks fit into the big picture though, you’ll be amazed at how the work day flies by!

Improving Relationships

Increasing productivity through a positive attitude also relies heavily on how well you interact with co-workers. Many studies show that employees who work together in teams will have greater success in their tasks and a greater ownership in the final product… as long as the teammates’ attitudes match, that is.

One of the biggest challenges a manager faces is creating the best possible teams within the workplace. Placing employees together who have no chance of working together successfully leads to unproductive workers. Pairing folks from the slacker table in the break room with one person from the positivity at the next table over is almost always a disaster, for example.

Taking the time to create teams where the personalities mesh well will almost certainly lead to more success and better workflow among all the team members.

Laughter Leads to Success

One way managers can see whether teammates are working well together is measuring whether meetings involve a certain amount laughter. People who laugh together create stronger bonds, allowing them to work together more closely and with better productivity.

Laughter can diffuse stressful situations, leading to a better flow of work throughout the office. Laughter counteracts problems created when you’re feeling an increase in your stress level, too.

Many of the same workflow benefits that happy people enjoy will apply to those who laugh on a regular basis, too. Of course, you should be careful: you don’t want your office turning into The Office.

Better Listeners Are Happy

Those who work together on a team also experience higher levels of success when they learn how to listen to each other. Good listeners will maintain eye contact with the speaker, avoiding glancing at cell phones or computer screens.

If you’ve ever felt like taking the cell phone of someone you’re speaking with and tossing it under the tire of the nearest truck, you likely understand the frustration of dealing with someone who’s a poor listener. Such distractions lead to mistakes and poor productivity levels.

When you use clues to show someone that you’re listening on a regular basis, they’ll be confident they’re not going to have to repeat themselves, which is sure to make everyone more efficient in the office. If you have to constantly fix problems caused by poor listening skills, productivity is going to crash to a halt.

Path To Productivity Paved With Happiness

All that stands between your workplace and new heights of productivity is you. Adjust your attitude now, and not only will you be a happier and more effective employee, but those around you – save maybe the most jaded and cynical – will follow suit.

Fortunately, by the time you’re flaunting your newfound aura of positivity, those who still stubbornly hold onto a deep-seated cynicism won’t feel like wasted potential. By then, you’ll know that they’re just missing out.

Microsoft has a strange obsession with productivity

Microsoft started with a mission during the ‘80s to put “a computer on every desk in every home.” Having achieved that, the new Microsoft has bigger, more ambitious goals in an era where personal computing is moving to a mobile world Microsoft doesn’t dominate. Computers aren’t just working tools anymore, they’re components of our entire life. Apple is about creativity and simplicity; Google is about interconnectivity.

Microsoft has chosen productivity.

Productivity is at the center of everything Microsoft is now building across multiple rival platforms, a shift from the company’s focus on its own devices and services just a year ago under former CEO Steve Ballmer. Productivity is the new buzzword that Microsoft is slapping on…

Productivity Tools for Creatives


If you are working in a creative industry (design, advertising, technology, media, entertainment, architecture etc.) chances are that you are working remotely.

You don’t sit desk-to-desk with the people you work with every day. Your co-workers and clients sit on other floors, in other buildings, other cities and even in other countries. You cannot just roll over to your colleague on your office chair and ask him what he or she thinks of your latest design, logo or illustration. No, you have to discuss your visual idea in endless e-mails, multiple phone or Skype calls. You also need strong project management skills to keep everybody up-to-date and on track.

Luckily, there are a lot of productivity tools out there that can make your job easier and save you a lot of money, time and hassle. As a startup, media and marketing consultant I have found these tools useful.

A professional project management is essential for every successful project. The most prominent workflow tool is Basecamp.

Basecamp

Basecamp is a product from web app company 37signals and offers milestone management, time tracking, a messaging system, web-based text documents and file sharing. There is also Asana, a tool that was developed by Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz to improve the productivity level at Facebook and Trello which uses Kanban, a project management method popularized by Japanese car maker Toyota in the 1980s for their supply chain.

Creative projects typically start with a brief and a brainstorming phase where ideas and possible solutions are generated and outlined. Balsamiq and HotGloo help you at this stage.

Balsamiq

Balsamiq is a mockup builder and reproduces the experience of sketching on a whiteboard. HotGloo is a wireframe UX prototyping tool and has a strong focus on more complex interaction and collaboration.

Most ideas go through many iterations and feedback rounds before they are approved. Red Pen and Prevue help you get instant and meaningful feedback from clients and team members.

Red Pen

You can upload your work directly on the Red Pen or the Prevue homepage, share the link with your team and clients and put comments directly on the design.

If you don’t like switching back and forth between various tools you should try Notism, a design collaboration platform that combines prototyping, realtime feedback and task management – all in one place.

Notism

This “one-stop shop” closes a gap among existing tools and was nominated at thenetawards for “App of the Year 2014″ by net magazine.

Finally, Froont gives you the possibility to create a whole responsive website without a line of code.

Froont

Froont works directly with a drag and drop interface and creates fully functional HTML and CSS code on the fly which saves you the labor of converting
static images into HTML and CSS for the development stage.

Concluding

Whatever productivity tool you choose to work with, pick one that meets your individual needs and is easy to learn by team members and clients. Springtime is around the corner and there are better things to do than to sit at your desk.
