Its interface is user-friendly and built-in for Mac mail plane users. For others browsers like Opera many work around are available to use all the Rapportive features.

How does Rapportive works

Rapportive servers inquire about the information of your contacts on its own. In the browser it automatically locates the emails being used, and sends the information about them to their servers, where further process takes place. Then the information gathered is returned back and displayed in your Gmail inbox.

One important thing needs to be assured here, is that none of your email is being stored anywhere on Rapportive servers. Also that Rappor-tive does not have any access to your Gmail password. Content of the email is not being transferred, it’s only the recipients of that email whose information is being used.

Rapportive is like any other add on which can be easily installed on your Gmail, which provides you with your own Rapportive profile. Here you can keep your professional and personal profiles separate with an option to merge the both together.

Many other unique services integrated in it, which can be used via raplets. It is like a mini application which is used to enhance the usability of the Rappor-tive.

Many famous vendors like Mailchimp, Aweber, Klout, Github, Brightpearl, Mixcloud, BatchBook, Crunchbase, Bantam Live, and BookingBug have build different raplets which are available to use along Rapportive. One of such famous one is created by Tungle.me, which helps you to schedule meetings with your Gmail users. This acts as a big time saver for you.

I hope this rapportive review will help you to integrate one of the best free CRM tools for your Gmail account. If you use any other tools, do let us know. I would also suggest you to check out WiseStamp, which is another useful addon for serious Email users, to add social media links as signature.

DokDok: Easily Manage Your Email Attachments Online

dokdok-1 E-mail attachments are a great way to share items via electronic mail. However, sometimes managing email attachments sent or received can be cumbersome since they’re not particularly organized when they’re sent or arrive. DokDok is a free to try web app which can be used to manage your email inbox attachments efficiently.

With DokDok, business users can easily verify that an attachment is the most recent version, track its changes, and share it with others members of the organization – all without forcing a change in typical business workflow. This is especially helpful in those work areas where a single attachment has to change in multiple hands and maintaining the most updated record about the content/type/details of the email attachments is a difficult task.

DokDok is essentially different from the traditional file sharing app, a cloud synching service, or an enterprise document management system. DokDok aims to convert the email inbox into a powerful and productive document sharing tool.

Currently DokDok is available for Google Apps and can be added to your Google Apps listing via its Google Apps Marketplace page.

DokDok-2

DokDok’s premiere feature is the automatic document archive which automatically archives and saves attachments present in your e-mail inbox. This saves time as every attachment can be found without looking for old lost attachments.

DokDok also helps renaming attachments to know which version is the latest and also allows users to work on both the older version of the attachment and a newer version at the same time, with the option to even compare both versions side by side. This support is for all attachments in Microsoft Office formats i.e. Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc. files and OpenOffice.org formats.

dokdok-3

DokDok is a great way to manage and share email attachments without having to engage in any kind of complexity. We recommend it to anyone who uses Google Apps and deals with a lot of email attachments online every day.
