@codyhalff cool! I have been on the watch for a good personal CRM. I will give it a try. I would love to hear the story of how you came up with it. I used Contactually in the past, but it was a bit more than what I needed. However, I did love its bucket system and the automated reminders associated with the buckets. Would that be something in the pipe for FollowUp?
Thanks @ricotrevisan! Really it came from a couple different things - our own experience trying to manage important contacts and the way people were using our first product (this post goes into more detail): https://medium.com/@codyhalff/de... And yes, our idea is to link followups to tags so you can assign them to larger groups (the tag essentially being the bucket).
wow, thats really cool!

I've been using this product for 2 months to keep track of people that I want to continue to engage with in my network personally. For people I don't talk to frequently, I set a desired follow-up amount of time (2 weeks, 1 month, 3 months, etc) and then I never have to worry about "forgetting" to keep in touch with people.

The app creates events on your Google Calendar and sends an email when you haven't been in touch with someone past the follow-up timeframe you set.

One caveat for me is that it works on Gmail rather than Inbox, and with events and emails more than Tasks.

Pros:

Hands-off relationship management

Cons:

Would love to see deeper integration with Google, other social media insights

being lazy as I am this is first CRM that I use on day to day basis. no need to login into other system, everything is handy and simple, feature list is simple but powerful

Pros:

simplicity, working followups

Cons:

more robust reporting

@codyhalff are you guys planning on having the plugin work for linkedin? A lot of my conversations with past coworkers happens on linkedin messaging. It would be awesome to set reminders when I should reach out to someone.
