How To: Email2Log – when you forget to include your JibberJobber email (or other scenarios)

March 7th, 2014

You know what bugs me? When I send an email and mean to do the email2log thing (just the coolest thing in JibberJobber!),but forget to put my ultra-secret email address in the BCC field.

You see, using the BCC field saves me probably an hour a day.  If you don’t know why, or if you want to save an hour a day, check out this blog post on Email2Log.

What do you do when you forget to do it?  Do you then have to go into JibberJobber, search for the contact, click “Add Log Entry,” and then copy and paste from your email to the Log Entry?

No, you don’t!  We made it easy to fix this “oops.”  

The way you do it will be helpful in another scenario… for example, sometimes I take notes from a phone call in an email message.  I’m not sure why I do that, I got in the habit of doing it years ago.  (I find myself switching to taking notes in a Log Entry, though, especially since we put in the auto-save on Log Entries)

In both of these cases there is something that is written somewhere that I want in a Log Entry… so how do you easily get it into a Log Entry without copying and pasting?

Easy!

Simply send an email to your ultra-secretive email address… you don’t have to send it to anyone else.

In the body of the email, put this line:

contacts:email@address.com,secondemail@address.com,___,____,___  (you can have as many as you want)

So, in your email we look for that line and will make a Log Entry for any email address there. BONUS: we’ll also make a new Contact record, if it doesn’t exist already.

This is super, duper cool.  I use it more than I thought I would.

Guess what?  That is only one of the things you can do with a special line in the body.  You can also create a Log Entry, and associate the email to Companies and Jobs.

Tell me that’s not cool. To see an example, go to Account, then the Email tab, and click the help icon.
