Taglocity 2.0 for Outlook Available for Free Download
Tool brings Outlook users "tagging" capabilities and features that mimic Google Gmail
Taglocity has released Taglocity 2.0 for Outlook, a free and downloadable add-on for Outlook 2003 and 2007 that mimics key Google Gmail features.
Foremost among Taglocity 2.0's features is the ability to "tag" MS Outlook items, including e-mails, calendar items, and contacts. According to the company, "This helps create an organization system better adapted to business use." That is, users can eschew the traditional folder method for organizing their Outlook items for Taglocity's more flexible "virtual folders."
One advantage is that users will not need to make copies of a single e-mail to place in separate folders; they can simply assign multiple tags to the original and a simple tag search will quickly find the message.
Users can automate tasks for specific tags, and they can also automatically assign tags to incoming mail based on sender or keywords. Tags can be made "private" or "public" -- the latter would allow any replies to the original tagged message to come back "pre-tagged," regardless of whether the recipients use Taglocity.
Another feature in Taglocity 2.0 is Gmail's conversation view; related e-mails can be brought up in chronological order in Outlook with one click.
"Many people think that e-mail is easier to manage with Google's Gmail than Outlook, yet Gmail is typically banned from business usage," according to a prepared statement from Taglocity CEO David Towert. "With Taglocity 2.0 for Outlook, we deliver the best of both worlds -- the advanced functionality of the leading business e-mail client paired with more practical and efficient ways to manage e-mail -- all of which gives our customers a fighting change against e-mail overload."
