Description from store Have you struggled with getting to inbox zero with those piling emails? Countdown to Inbox Zero shows you how much time you've left before you have to act on unread emails. Each unread email gets a 12-hour countdown timer. Reply, Mark as Read, Delete or Archive - act on your unread emails quickly to prevent them from piling. There are 3 stages to this time. 1. When you get an email, a normal 12-hour countdown timer starts. 2. After 4 hours, you've 8 hours left to reply and your timer will turn *orange*. 3. After 11 hours, you've only 1 left to reply. Your timer is now *red* and you should act on it immediately. Once emails are over 4 days due, the timer shuts down (since it's probably not worth tracking anymore!) These urgency levels are customizable and can be set to any value. By adhering to the countdown timer, clients and co-workers alike might notice your promptness and ability to deal with a massive inbox flow. Be in control of your email before it controls you and get to Inbox Zero daily.

  • (2019-08-26) This app is amazing. It works so well for the company I work for. This has really been something we were looking for. We are able to customize the Due time for each email. In some department the operator has 1 hour to read the email, while another has 6 hours. They are now able prioritize their work more efficiently. Being able to see how much time they have at a glance really does keep them more on track. No more excuses !!! :) The color change is really nice. When you are getting close to the due time or past it it switches from Green to yellow to Red. It looks like something that would be in a paid business app. You can really tell that the developer cares about this app and its functionality. I look forward to using his other apps as well. They are so simple but effective. In my mind its some of the best engineering on a lite product in years. He is very receptive to constructive criticism. Keep up the great work.
