How to set reminders?

There are 3 ways to send reminders, using the various email addresses in your email:

To: Schedule an email reminder for yourself, or Forward an email to reappear on a future date.
Cc: Schedule a reminder for everyone included in the email.
Bcc: Schedule a reminder within an email that only you will see and receive. 


Here are some basic examples of how to set reminders.

Push to the future -
Client says to touch base in 10 days. Use minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and/or years to schedule your reminder in the future

10days@followup.cc

Upcoming hour -
Dinner tonight at 8pm. Use the time, with AM or PM. You can also set time with minutes.

8pm@followup.cc

Future day of the week

Prep for the conference on Monday. Use the day of the week or its abbreviation mon@followup.cc

For a specific date

Forward travel arrangements to appear or set a reminder for a package delivery. Use the month or its abbreviation with the day after it. 

january1@followup.c

or add a time 

jan1-9am@followup.cc 

For a recurring event 

Remember a birthday or weekly sales meeting. Any reminder can be made recurring by either adding the word every to the beginning of the reminder OR adding an asterisk (*) to the end of the reminder. 

Examples: jan30-9pm*@followup.cc, weekeverymon9am@followup.cc, monthlyevery1st@followup
