Hello Product Hunters! Thanks for visiting. I used to work in Sales, and my company usually paid for Email Tracking and Contact Profile tools. These email features are now an indispensable part of my daily workflow. Now that I started my own company, I wanted my whole team to have this superpower - not just sales, but all customer-facing teams. However, paying for everyone starts getting expensive. So we built one for ourselves instead and decided to let the world have it as well, for free. As I'm writing this, we've only released it for a few days. So I'd love it if anyone can give us some feedback about what you like or what could be better. If you love it, give us a shoutout here or on Twitter @contextsmith (and don't forget to invite your friends :)). A few key features, all for free: * Know when your emails are opened, where and on what device * Know who you're talking to with profile picture, job title, and social links * Track contact engagement * Track emails that haven't been opened * Only works for Gmail at the moment We hope you enjoy it!

@wcheung I've been using Mailtrack for almost 2 years now. How is your product different?

@faisal_hassanx Thanks checking us out! One major difference is that we find your email senders' profiles (photo, title, social links) and display them on a sidebar. Besides that and user interface, we're pretty similar. I don't know if Mailtrack has info on email open device (iPhone, Mac, etc) and location (estimated), but we can find those info, we will display them. It's good to figure out the people we email are traveling or not. Our free version doesn't require you to have a stamped signature :) We're working on a few other features and would love your thoughts on what you'd like to see next!

@wcheung @faisal_hassanx a big difference is that it doesn't automatically add in branding to all of your email sends like Mailtrack does. Big win for those that don't want to spend the $ on the software.

Just added to my chrome. Pluses 1. Minimalistic design 2. Uses your mailing style, no need to open extension for that. 3. Fast response with notifications. The only minus (maybe not), it wasn't showing the device when I'm using it. Just says that the message opened. Hope you can help me to figure out this. Conclusion. Good job :)

Overall a must-have tool if you’re in your inbox all day long.

Pros:

Really easy to use and doesn’t get in your way (sidebar collapses if not used). Free is great - others charge for the same service

Cons:

Maybe in the paid plan, I’d love to see some more features like scheduling emails.

Neat product but can't handle multiple accounts and keeps requiring me to log in and out for tracking. This is a dealbreaker for me. Would suggest you fix this ASAP :) More power to you guys!

@sartajanand @faraujoj Ah, thanks for the feedback. We actually deliberately separate the email accounts so you don't have mix tracking feed between multiple emails (personal vs work). Sounds like you have multiple (work?) accounts that you don't mind mixing up the emails?

@faraujoj @wcheung I'm usually logged into 2 accounts (private and work) which are both hosted on google apps so it doesn't seamlessly track in the CS sidebar and keeps telling me to log in and out for the appropriate account.

@faraujoj @sartajanand Thanks. Our CTO made a suggestion for a workaround, and it is to install (yet another) Chrome extension that separates the sessions, so you don't have to keep logging out. https://chrome.google.com/websto... That said, we will definitely take your feedback into consideration. Thanks again!
