Plug/Follow-Up: SideFinder

Using tags for email navigation ...

"If you remember the "Brighter Outlook" series I wrote (on MS Outloook), you might remember some discussion in the comments about tagging etc from Mark Rosenberger of CNXN.

They are working on "SideFinder" for Outlook. It's a side panel that will allow you to easily tag your emails while not prohibiting business as usual. If your interested in trying out the beta, check out the site.

From the site:

Let's face it; it takes discipline to maintain folders and you've got better things to do than spend hours organizing your inbox! Sidefinder automates much of the filing process with Tags and it integrates with Outlook Rules to automate it even further. There's no need to click through endless folder trees to get to a message and you can file it under many categories without creating duplicates.

Here's a feature I thought was interesting and worth a note:

If you can't easily think of a good tag name, drag a message to a message to link them and let SideFinder give it one automatically. Use one message to find the tag, to find the other message. Of course you can always rename it later if you like.

...that gets at the spirit of was I was trying to convey in my posts."    (Continued via User Centered)    [Usability Resources]
