Hi Product Hunt! Thanks @katmanalac for hunting :) I’m Kevin, the founder of Dex 👋 I started working on Dex because I felt like I was falling out-of-touch with people I cared about. I wanted to be aware of “how long it had been” and more proactive about maintaining my relationships. Looking to solve this problem, I tried data tools like Airtable, Notion, and Google Sheets. It was easy to setup a sheet to track relationships, but I eventually found these tools difficult to keep up with. I’d end up procrastinating on updating my records and would rarely find the time to revisit them. Dex is a personal CRM that aims to be simple, intuitive, and accessible. To get started, all you have to do is sign up and connect your contacts and calendar. With this information, Dex suggests people to contact every day. Over time, these suggestions become better as users customize how frequently they’d like to reach out. Dex includes the functionality you might include from a CRM -- logging notes, setting reminders, and organizing contacts. A feature which makes Dex unique is a Chrome extension, which allows you to view relationship history and add people without leaving social networking sites like LinkedIn, Messenger, Twitter, and Facebook. Most people realize the value and fulfillment that come from maintaining relationships, but occasionally still fall out of touch due to forgetfulness. Dex helps these people with a system of regular reminders to keep in touch. I’ve noticed many people already have their own ‘system’ for managing relationships, and I’d welcome any feedback you might have :)

Looks good and smooth! great work! its closed to what I'd want as a personal CRM. I have the same issue with Airtable! It's lacking some key features though. Do you plan on adding the ability to log LI/FB messages, log emails?

@baptistedebever logging emails is definitely something we'll do soon. LI/FB messages are a bit trickier. (the Chrome Extension lets you use Dex in Messenger and LinkedIn messages). Unfortunately, using an API to log LI/FB isn't really possible, but it's something we want to do (just have to figure out the right way to do it!)

@kevinsun Understood, makes sense! Yeah, been looking into that to build my own LI extension actually and except doing scraping, I assume there would not be any easy way! I think https://chrome.google.com/websto... does that for Hubspot. Happy to chat :)
@baptistedebever @kevinsun Yeah the LI/FB message logs are the key feature for me. I contact people from Twitter, FB personal, FB Pages, LinkedIn, email, etc. If I can't see where I met them and when we last engaged, it's back to manual tracking .
@baptistedebever @james_mtc that makes sense; automation is on the roadmap but it's hard to get right. Will see what we can do :)
@baptistedebever @james_mtc @kevinsun Kevin, if you can can figure out the LI/FB/Twitter thing, that would make the product. I'd even authorize giving access to those pages to that plugin so you can scrape the DOM directly every time I message someone.
Love the Chrome extension, such an intuitive way to use the product where relationships reside!
