If you are running a small business or working with a team, coordinating your business activities and managing projects may become disorganized and messy if you don’t have a powerful tool to manage them. Gmail may be one of the most popular email clients used for handling company email, but it does not offer exclusive features for handling customer support, delegating tasks and following up on sales and leads intuitively.
That’s where a handy service called Grexit comes into play. Grexit is designed to help you delegate emails to your staff, assign and track project management activities, share, delegate and track sales leads and delegate email messages to virtual assistants for easier task management. Let’s check out how Grexit works and how it manages to convert the tedious task of team collaboration in the workplace a breeze.
How Grexit Works
Once you sign up for Grexit, you will be required to connect it to your Gmail account. In the Admin Panel of the tool, you need to create shared labels then add the email addresses of the team members you want to coordinate with.
You can create fresh new labels such as Tasks: James (Colleague Name) or Tasks: Done (Status) or you can reuse labels you already created in your Gmail account.
Once you configure these settings, Grexit will copy the shared labels to the Inboxes of your teammates. When you are ready to assign tasks to your teammates all you need to do is attach the respective Tasks: Colleague Name label to the email.
Team mates get instant notifications of tasks assigned right inside Gmail and can resolve them right away without switching between apps or other windows.
Another cool feature of Grexit is Shared Notes. You can convey important instructions and notes on a task via the Notes section that is available to the right of the email thread. Any notes shared are instantly made available to all shared contacts who will also receive a notification of the same. This ensures that all team members stay on the same page and avoid miscommunication and lapses when handling a task.
Here's a little teaser that explains what Grexit can do for your business!
