Sometimes, you might find a new extension, plugin or solution, and need some more personal stories from the people who actually use its features. We’ve already written in the past about some of the professionals who use Mailbutler and which of their features are their favorites - but sometimes, getting this information straight from the horse’s mouth is best.
So how do the people who know Mailbutler the best actually use Mailbutler - our team?
Julia, Customer Success Manager
"The Notes and Tasks features are my favourite Mailbutler features. I think they are features that are essential if you’re working in a team. I use them a lot to share information with my colleagues in the Support Team or to create to-dos for the team.
The ability to add Notes and Tasks is what keeps both my inbox and my whole workday organised. And of course, I also rely on this feature to help me manage my private communication. I just love it!"
Callan, Head of Email Marketing
"Emails are, of course, important to everyone, but as the Head of Email Marketing at Mailbutler, there are a couple of features that I find especially important - like the Signatures feature.
Normally, creating custom signature designs for emails is time-consuming and requires no small amount of creativity and design skill. But with the Mailbutler Signatures feature, I can quickly and easily insert information, photos, and links into well-designed signatures.
Moreover, I can customise the design to match our brand with just a couple of clicks. It really makes my job (and life) that much easier!"
Tiffany, Product Owner, Marketing and Website
"The Mailbutler Templates feature is definitely the feature I use the most!
In my job, I often write almost identical emails, especially when it comes to correspondence with partners and collaborations or contact with customers. Since things often have to be done quickly, I have created a template for every different email I need to send. They are nicely formulated, optimally formatted and, of course, checked for typos.
Now I have the right template for most cases and can answer emails within seconds - always knowing that my answer is as good as it can be."
Iuliia, Product Owner
"My favourite Mailbutler feature is Tracking. I believe it really assists our users in planning and getting to know their business partners better.
Communication is the key to success. To send your message at the right time (of course with the right proposal) is the most important thing. Thanks to Mailbutler Tracking, it’s no longer guesswork or luck - you know exactly when you need to send your message to have an optimum impact!"
James, Content Marketing Manager
"My favourite Mailbutler feature is Snooze. It’s a really simple feature - it hides emails from your inbox for a certain amount of time, instead of placing them in a dedicated Snoozed folder so your inbox is clean.
I love this feature, because working on my emails really stresses me out - I get tons every day, and they’re a big distraction from the rest of my work.
With Snooze, I can keep my inbox totally clear, and instead block out thirty minutes from my day which I dedicate to sorting out my emails. This is usually directly after lunch, so I snooze all my messages to 1 PM and keep my mornings free, work on my emails once per day, and keep the distractions at bay."
"My favorite Mailbutler feature is the activity list, which works for me as an extra to-do list. Whenever something happens with my emails, I see a new entry in the activity feed. I can check these entries one by one and mark them as 'seen', which makes them disappear automatically from the feed.
Using this feature, I can work through the events and reach a state without any unseen activities. With this great feature I am always informed about my communication and everything revolving around them."
So there you have it - how we here at Mailbutler, use Mailbutler. As you can see, each of us has our own favorite feature. However, Mailbutler's features are best used in tandem, as they all complement each other! Try it out today for 14 days for free.
