Introducing Team Contacts on CloudMagic


Startup Stock Photos
Does your work involve exchanging emails with people outside your organization? If yes, we are thrilled to introduce a new feature for you – Team Contacts.

Team Contacts on CloudMagic brings you and your colleagues together to improve external emailing. You can discover contacts connected to your colleagues and know when they have interacted, right inside your email app.

All you need to do is create a team with your colleagues to share business contacts with each other. As part of your regular emailing, and without any additional data-entry, Team Contacts enables you and your team to:

  • Find the best person to get warm introductions
  • Stay in context
  • Avoid overlapping emails
  • Increase the team’s overall outreach

To make it fun and simple, we used the Pixar story formula to show how Team Contacts will work in four typical business situations –

As part of Team Contacts, only contacts associated with the selected email account will be shared with the team members. Phone contacts and contacts from any other email accounts are untouched. The actual emails are never shared, only the timeline of emails exchanged are shared which is good enough to show who was in touch with who and when.

How CloudMagic helps me efficiently run a one-man business

This article is a part of User Stories that explores how CloudMagic simplifies digital life and overall productivity. Col Skinner, Owner and Digital Consultant at Profoundry came forward to share his story with us. This article has been edited for brevity and clarity.

Running a business where ‘you’ are the product comes with a number of challenges. Like most freelancers, there is virtually no separation between my work and personal lives. Being constantly leashed to some form of digital technology has its benefits, but also means that clients often expect split second replies. For me to deliver a consistently personal and efficient service I must respond to emails punctually without substituting the functionally I would get from my PC, for speed.

When I moved from iPhone to a OnePlus One, I wanted an Android email application that could handle my busy working lifestyle. With CloudMagic and its integrations, I can keep up that level of service and efficiency wherever I happen to be.

For both work and personal email

I use CloudMagic for my personal (Outlook) and work email accounts. Having them all in one application and colour coded down the right hand side lets me distinguish between the two and helps me prioritise my replies.

Instant push notifications

By integrating CloudMagic into the AcDisplay App I am able to view emails during meetings without rudely picking up my phone mid negotiation. I can see who has emailed and the first few lines of the email body, then decide if I need to reply, delete or archive that email. Swift and simple.

Lightning fast search

We all have those moments when a client questions what was said by who or supplier misquotes your original point. The CloudMagic search functionality is vital to being able to quickly source the email in question and confirm what was originally said.

Smart contact suggestions

I have various clients I email far more than others. The CloudMagic ‘most popular’ function reduces the faff of finding that email address and makes it just a tap away.

Attaching images is a breeze

I use CloudMagic to take photos of my expense receipts and send them direct to my inbox for safe storage until I can upload them into my accounting software. This means I don’t have to worry about losing them or wade through piles of receipts at a later date.

Complete support for drafts

The recently introduced Drafts functionality was a god send for someone like me who is always doing a million things at once whilst trying to write work emails. It also means I can go and check something on a client website without worrying my draft email may get lost forever.

Manage your documents effortlessly

I am always sending across proposals, contracts and audit documents whilst on the go. The attachment function integrates into my phones File Manager, Dropbox and Google Drive. So all bases are covered when it comes to retrieving and sending those precious client documents.

Better folder structure

In a bid to keep organised and efficient I filter emails into various folders by task, priority, client etc. A lot of the email applications I tested did not let me dig into Inbox folders making it difficult to keep organised whilst out and about. CloudMagic, on the other hand, lets me do just that. So finding that email that always ends up in your Junk folder is a breeze and retrieving that email you deleted by mistake is a doddle.
