Thanksgiving is right around the corner, but you still have a lot to plan before the big feast. You need to send out email invitations, coordinate who is bringing what, all while doing all of your normal activities. Email management can be tricky without the stress of planning a holiday meal. With Mailbutler, it can help you manage and organize your emails efficiently so there will be no stress!

Mailbutler, an email productivity extension for Apple Mail, Gmail, iOS and Android, helps you manage your email by giving you more features to your favorite email client. More specifically, five of Mailbutler’s features will help thrive through this Thanksgiving season, so you can enjoy what really matters eating turkey, being thankful and spending time with family!

1. Thanksgiving Message Templates 

What are Templates

Mailbutler’s Templates are pre-written messages, which you can customize the text with different fonts, colors, images, gifs and so much more! Templates help you save time by pre-writing emails.

Why are Templates great for Thanksgiving?

You can create Templates to send to all of your loved ones inviting them to your meal, as well as, sending one to your friends and colleagues wishing them a Happy Thanksgiving! On these Templates, you can personalize them to your liking by adding images from your previous thanksgiving meals, a funny GIF of a turkey, or traditional images of foliage and gorges. Templates are a great way of spreading tender-hearted greetings

2. Send Later

What is Send Later

Send Later is a feature that you can schedule emails to be sent for later. It is great when you want to schedule your emails to be sent for when your recipient looks at their inbox or for future events, like a holiday! 

Why should you use Send Later for Thanksgiving? 

Send Later is perfect for Thanksgiving because you can create your Templates early and schedule them to be sent for a week or so before Thanksgiving. It’s a perfect to stay organized before all of the coordination stress begins. So when Thanksgiving approaches, you can focus on food and family.

3. Notes

What are Notes

Mailbutler’s Notes are personal memos that you can attach to your email, that only you or your team can see. They are useful when you need to mark down important information in an email. Notes help you stay organized by remembering important details from specific emails. 

How will Notes help you through planning Thanksgiving? 

Notes will help you stay organized when planning your Thanksgiving party. For example, say you are planning a potluck and you are organizing who is bringing which dish. With Notes, you can track who is bringing which dish, so you won’t accidentally have two of the same dishes. Notes are a perfect way of managing your Thanksgiving planning by organizing your inbox.

4. Tasks

What are Tasks

With Mailbutler, you can turn emails into Tasks on your to-do lists. Tasks allow you to stay organized all from right inside your inbox! 

How can Tasks help you with Thanksgiving? 

Tasks along with Notes can help you coordinate who is bringing what to your Thanksgiving meal. You can turn their emails into Tasks so it becomes a simple to-do list of what you have to do. Tasks is a perfect way to reduce stress because it seamlessly turns your email into a to-do list. 

5. Tracking

What is Tracking

Mailbutler’s Tracking notifies you when your email or link has been clicked or open. It is useful to know when your recipient looks at their message, so you can contact them when they are the most engaged

How can Tracking help you keep track of your relatives? 

We all have that one relative who never responds to messages because they did not “see” or “receive” it. Now you can know if they are ignoring your emails or if they actually don’t look at their inbox. Tracking is a perfect way of staying on top of who is coming, who is bringing food and who is just ignoring you. A perfect conversation starter for Thanksgiving!

To Summarize: 

Thanksgiving is about spending time with loved ones. We want to be able to enjoy this time as much as possible so why not use Mailbutler to help you ease away the stress of coordinating and planning. If you simply use Templates, Send Later, Notes, Tasks and Tracking, and other features, they will minimize the stress of planning! Email management with Mailbutler is the key to a stressless Thanksgiving! 

Even though in Germany we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, we would like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving anyway!
