I am writing an article on the concept of Outlook as a platform. I am presently using a number of apps that install inside Outlook including:
I have turned off the Getting Things Done add-in as I think that it was causing Outlook to be unstable, but nothing other than annectdotal examples. I would be curious as what other ideas people are using inside Outlook.
My gut tells me that Microsoft never intended Outlook to be a near industrial strength personal CRM system.
But I would like to look at good ideas and good stuff to expand my thinking. I know that I need to scrape my hard drive and reinstall everything. One of the issues that companies like ActiveWords encounters is that we need to try stuff to see how ActiveWords works with us.
This idea that says … “Does your product play well with others?” is something that we, and I am sure others consider all the time.
