We went and gave ourselves a makeover! The Jott website is now faster, easier to use, and has more functionality. The new site is really the product of all the great feedback we’ve received about different ways people use Jott, different ways they wish they could use Jott, why we are great, why we are not so great, and what we should strive to be. For the past several months we’ve been chugging away at some great new features and sleek redesign, all to aide in the quest to Get Simple Back!
Check out what’s new:
Folders are now lists
Keep all those to-dos in one neat and tidy place! New functionality includes the ability to drag your Jott messages from your All Jotts to a list for simple additions, set items on your list as a reminder or as high priority (or both!) and cross them off when you are done. Last but not least, you can now print out your Jott Lists in a convenient check list to take with you wherever you go.
All Jotts feed
Rather than the traditional inbox, we decided to move forward with what is essentially, a feed of all your Jott messages. Basically, this means that all of the Jott messages you send, whether they are to yourself, to others or to Jott Links, as well as the Jott messages others send you, will all show up in this one place.
Drag and drop
You’re all used to this from Outlook and other email clients. Want to move something to a list? Grab the orange tab that appears when you roll over the Jott message and drag it there. You can send Jotts to other, to Jott Links, to your phone or printer this way too.
Your most frequently Jotted contacts will show up in the right column under the Manage Contacts section. To see all of your contacts, import or add new ones, or change any of their contact information, simply click the Manage Contacts link.
Added reminder functionality
You can now hit the snooze button on your reminders. Reply to any Jott reminder whether via email or text message with Snooze and get another reminder 15 minutes later. You can also now add a reminder easily from the Jott website by typing the subject of your reminder in the Add Jott text box at the top of the All Jotts page and then clicking the Add a Reminder button.
Email and text message your account
The anti-Jott? Not quite! We’re bringing things full circle to offer you multi-modal access to your organization and communication system. Now you can add contacts to your account and items to your list by texting or emailing while away from your computer. Forgot that person’s email address but know you have it in your Jott account? Text message or email your account to retrieve that info.
As always, we are all ears and would love to hear what you all think. We’ll continue to work out some kinks over the next few weeks as we gear up for some truly outrageous new features coming your way.
