FollowUpThen becomes more effortless the more you use it. Here are tips to improve followup efficiency.
Teach your email program common FUT formats by sending an email to email@example.com Hit "reply all" to the email we back, and that's it.
Save keystrokes by using our short domain. It works exactly the same way. Ex: firstname.lastname@example.org
Download our vCard of common formats.
Take the time to learn your email program's keyboard shortcuts. When combined with FUT, you will fly.
Interact with your followup without leaving your email.
Followups only for you.
Place FUT in the BCC field to keep it entirely hidden. The reminder goes to only you. Your recipients see no trace of FUT (other than your uncanny timing).
Schedule a quick reminder. Your future self will thank you.
Forward emails from your inbox to the moment you will actually need them.
Perfect for project management and collaboration.
Placing FUT in the "cc" field automatically sends a followup to everyone in the "to" field when the followup is due.
Preview the future followup by simply clicking on it in the web app, or by sending yourself an email and cc'ing email@example.com.
Change the automatic followup message from your customize settings page.
Add the Whitelabel skill to remove the footer message to remove all FollowUpThen branding.
Note: The only time FUT will email your recipients is if you place it in the "cc" field.
Threading, or "conversation view" is a setting in nearly all email programs. It groups new emails with previous emails in the same conversation.
FUT works best with threading turned on, but it also works without it.
With threading, following up is as simple as clicking on the last email you sent and hitting "reply"
Without threading, hit "forward", delete the FUT content and send the email to your original recipient. You can also find the earlier message.
Handle your future inbox with ease.
View, manage and interact with your upcoming follouwps from our handy web app: app.followupthen.com
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your upcoming FUTs.
By default, you'll receive a a daily agenda, which you can manage here.

Clicking on an action ("postpone" in the example above) composes a new email. It is pre-populated with instructions which tell use to postpone the followup. Nearly all email programs support this. Configuration is sometimes required.
You may be surprised to find that this simple reminder, in practice, feels more like a personal assistant — one that you can train and invest in, just like an actual assistant.

When combining different parts of a date, avoid putting the numbers together directly. Separate them with a "th" or "nd". For example, April29th2024@fut.io, not April292024 does not.
Note: We do not yet have an "ending" keyword, but it is on our roadmap.
