Hi team! I work at Wrike, so you can imagine I use it daily, actually hourly...borderline nonstop if we're being honest. That said, I don't use all features all the time and one that I haven't used much before today is the snooze function for Inbox notifications.
Well, let me tell you how my work life was changed by them today.
🙏 Part 1: Info is needed. A lot of the times I'll ask a question and then get an @mention where someone lets me know that they're going to check on what I've asked and get back to me in "x" number of days, or there's a decision that's going to be made soon and I'll get an answer on "y" date. I always archive those notifications because there's no action required for me.
🤦 Part 2: Info may (or may not) be delivered. Now, a lot of the times I do get a reply, but we're all human and it's easy to forget about following up.
😍 Enter: snoozing reminders. The situation I described above happened today and I was creating an event in Google calendar to remind myself to check on the task. That's when I realized...why would I not just snooze the reminder? Now it's out of my Inbox but it'll be back and I don't have to worry about forgetting it.
Like I said: Life. Changed.
Does it change your Friday too? Or do you have your own Friday win to share? I'd love to hear below.
