How do I edit my reminders?You have multiple options to edit your reminders:- Smart Contacts: Relevant contacts can be added automatically to your catch up contact list. Relevance will be determined based on your previous interactions with the contact in your calendar. To turn this on go to the add-on settings and switch on Smart Contacts.- Edit Reminders: Open the add-on and click on Edit Reminders. Search for a contact and tap the switch to "on". This will automatically suggest a suitable interval based on previous interactions. Alternatively click on the contact and manually change the catch up interval to a desired frequency.- Google Contacts™ Label: To efficiently add/remove a big number of contacts, open Google Contacts™, select the relevant contacts and apply/remove the "go-catchup" label. You can do this from your Google Contacts™ application on your Android™ phone as well. Wait for the add-on to sync the changes in the background (could be up to 2 hours).
What happens to contacts with turned on reminders?It depends on whether you are relying on an automatic interval (smart contacts or just turning contact switch to on) or set a manual reminder interval (within specific contact).Automatic Interval: Depending on your previous catch up history with the individual you will get reminded to catch up. The minimum is once a year. The maximum is once a week.Manual Interval: You will be reminded according to the interval you set.
How do smart intervals work?go-catchup looks for calendar entries that match your catch up contact email, full name and/or given name.It uses those matches to calculate a relevant time interval automatically for each contact.
How will I receive Catch Up Reminders?When catch up reminders are triggered, they will appear in three places:- Google Tasks™: Task entry on go-catchup task list- Google Calendar™: Task entry for today- go-catchup add-on: web onlyAfter reaching out, just tick off the task / mark as completed.
What (else) can I do with Catch Up Reminders?When a catch up reminder is delivered via tasks, simply ticking it off lets go-catchup know that you caught up this interval. This means that go-catchup will not suggest the contact for another catch up in this interval.In addition to "simply ticking it off", you can do more:- Mark Completed: Ticking it off, already covered above ;-)
- Snooze: Move task to later date and get reminded that day
- Delete: Delete task and get reminded again shortly
- Add: Create new task for top of mind contact nameYou can also add a catch up event to your calendar. If you add the contact name in the summary or share the event via email, go-catchup will mark the corresponding task as completed and consider it when triggering your next reminder (i.e. no more reminders if you already caught up in interval).
