Consolidate Your Address Books
Combine your contacts from your phone and various email contact lists. The IQ Application allows you to import and export from various locations so that you always have a complete and consolidated address book, accessible to you wherever you are.
Throw your little black book away. Eliminate your dependency on contacts stored in your address book and within your various email accounts.
Customize Your Contact Entries
The IQ Application supports entering and maintaining all the standard contact information you would expect, and much more.
In addition to the contact’s name, phone number, email address, and postal address, IQTELL allows you to save additional useful information. For instance, your relationship with them, where they work, when and where you met, their birthday, their anniversary date, their favorite sports teams, their hobbies, as well as comments.
IQTELL is fully customizable. For example, you can add any information “on the fly”, such as additional phone numbers, “mail to” or “ship to” information, and much more.
You can even use your “Contacts” folder in your Workspace to keep track of your contacts’ relevant family members, like their spouse and children, so you are never embarrassed by forgetting this important information.
Example: Use your “Contacts” folder to keep track of coworkers, your neighborhood friends, parents of your children’s classmates, and hobby colleagues.
Example: Search your “Contacts” folder by typing “Caribbean Cruise 2010” to quickly locate all the friends you made on that vacation.
Example: Set Reminders to notify you when birthdays and anniversaries of certain contacts are approaching.
Group Your Contacts
Create as many Contact Groups as you need. IQTELL makes it easy for you to define new contact groups and select the contacts to be included in those, as well as select contacts to be added to any of your existing groups. And at any time, you can view all the members of any single contact group.
Sending an Email to every member of a contact group is easy. Simply type the name of the given group into the “To”, “Cc”, or “Bcc” portion of the email. You can also define a Task involving any individual contact or group by simply linking them to the task.
Example: Create contact groups for any part of your life, such as “Immediate Family Members”, “My Close Coworkers”, “My Best College Friends”, “My Soccer Team”, and the “Caribbean Cruise 2010”.
Example: Send an email to all the contacts in the “Parents of Barbara’s Schoolmates” contact group inviting them to Barbara’s upcoming birthday. Simply type “Parents” in the “To” portion of the email, and the Auto-compete will propose this group. That way, the given email will be sent individually to each of these parents.
Easily Create Contacts
Creating new contacts is simple. Enter as little information as you’d like when you first create a new contact, and add more information over time as it becomes available.
Also, it’s simple to add a new contact after receiving an Email. IQTELL will automatically copy all the relevant information from new emails for you, such as the sender’s first name, last name, and their email address.
Contacts, Relevant Information, and Actions
Contacts, related information, and actions are “connected”. Using IQTELL, you can link together all relevant information throughout your Workspace. For example, see all emails, tasks, and documents related to Jim Parker.
In another example, you create Notes relevant to discussions you had with your real estate broker, Mary White. Using IQTELL, you can easily see all the entries “related” to Mary White. The notes you’ve entered for all the important conversations you had with Marry, and all the emails and documents she has sent you are just a click away.
Example: Looking for the lease you signed with Ronald Smith? All you need to do is to right-click on his contact entry and select “View Contact Related Entries”. A new tab titled “Ronald Smith: Documents” will open, allowing you view all of his related documents, highlighting the lease you were looking for.
IQTELL in Action
- Create all your contact groups, like “Immediate Family Members”. IQTELL also enables you to attach a “label” next to each member, like “Father”, “Mother”, “Brother”, “Sister”, “Son”, “Daughter”, etc.
- Maintain useful information about your contacts. Anything you believe will contribute to your relationship with them, like how you met, their favorite sports teams, their hobbies, and birthdays and anniversaries.
- Keep track of birthdays and anniversaries. Note these important dates for family members, friends and important clients. With IQTELL it is easy to set Annual Reminders (with advance notification), so that you never miss these important events again.
- Keep track of your contacts by the various entities they are associated with, such as your service providers, utilities, banks, and your children’s school. Add information, like their role in the organization and their contact information.
- Use your fully customizable “Contacts” folder to also keep track of your past experiences with your contacts by linking Email, Phone Calls, and Meetings you’ve had with them.
- Keep contact information up-to-date for your coworkers, clients, and referrals.
- Manage to-do items as they relate to your various contacts. For example, you promised to call your client Joe Bradley with additional information you found about a potential tenant.
Associations and Clubs
- Keep track of your contacts as they relate to your neighborhood association, school clubs, and sports teams.
- Be able to quickly find out whom to call whenever a need arises like when you need to call Maggie Jones, president of the school board, because you have an issue with a teacher. Easily search for “School Board”, and see all the contacts and their role in the organization.
- Organize contacts related to parents of your children’s classmates. For instance, create a group called “Parents of Mrs. Isaac’s Class”.
- Add a flag for contacts you prefer to ignore. Enter notes to remind you why that’s the case.
- For specific contacts, add “hints”, such as the best times and phone numbers you can reach them. Another practical example, add an indicator for whether dialing “0” after the recording begins will get you connected directly to customer service.
