So, to better understand the root causes of our team’s (rare) unproductiveness, we took a poll. Can you guess what the biggest culprit ended up being? Yep, email. But not just email in general. Specifically, the inbox.

How to Fall In Love with Your Productivity Routine

I’m willing to bet any amount of money (okay, $20 at most) that “Be more productive” was somewhere on your list of new year’s resolutions for 2018. Honestly, it’s the type of resolution that ends up on nearly everybody’s list, almost every single year. So why is productivity one of those things that we seem to be forever chasing, but never able to truly achieve?

How to Use Emojis On Your Desktop, Like A Boss

Emojis are life! Literally. Anyone who begs to differ clearly isn’t aware that emoji users around the world manage to share upwards of 6 billion emojis per day. That’s a lot of emoji power.

5 Ways You Win When You Use A Unified Desktop Email Client

Email has become something we all take for granted. Not too long ago, we used to ask people if they had an email address. Today we just assume everyone has at least one. When someone needs to get in touch with you, they’re more likely to ask you for your email address than your phone number.

The Biggest Problem With Gmail (And How To Solve It!)

When Google released Gmail, it changed the way people use email. It was the first web-based email system to break out of the mold set by the desktop email clients that came before. Beginning as a sort of secret club that you had to be invited to, it took off right from the start. Not only was Gmail faster, with a much more advanced and easier to use interface, the way Gmail handled and sorted email was a giant leap ahead. Gmail left behind the hard to follow, chronological lists of messages and sorted everything into nice, neat, individual conversations. Many people didn’t realize at the time just how revolutionary this change was.
