A superpower is a special ability that only a few people have, and that can be used in all types of missions. Good followup is a superpower. Not many people have it. But all Good Todo users have access to good followup.
Here are two ways to use the followup superpower - in receiving tasks, and in creating them.
When someone says, “How about checking in with me in 2 weeks on that,” you need good followup. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org - in the Subject line, type “follow up with” and the name of the person - and in the body, write any notes or details about the followup. In two weeks, you’ll see it appear on today’s list!
When you email someone else a task you want them to complete, you can BCC a date in the future when you want to follow up with your colleague to make sure they’ve completed the task. For example, when you email your colleague, BCC email@example.com and in three days, you’ll see the email as a task in today’s list.
Email addresses are flexible! In addition to “d” for days and “w” for weeks, and you can also use “m”… for example, email firstname.lastname@example.org to email items a month in the future.
We hope you enjoy your followup superpower, using Good Todo!
