Triage is a medical term used to describe desperate situations where the doctor makes decisions that are not always in an individual's best interest, but in the interest of the catastrophe at hand. When performing triage in an emergency all patients fall into 1 of 4 categories. Your inbox is no different, each message can be acted upon in 1 of 4 ways: Reply, Skip, Ignore, Delete.
How does triage help me control my email?
The problem with traditional email clients is that they offers you too many distractions. People tend to do a first pass over their, now spiralling out of control inbox, for messages to delete. Then messages they ignore and easily file away others that don't need attention. Finally, after potentially hours of busy work, they focus on the important messages. Why are important and urgent messages dealt with last?
Triagemail is simple. You are presented with 1 and only 1 message at a time, the oldest first. You need to make a snap decision and act in 1 of 4 ways.
- Delete: Get ride of the message.
- Ignore: Mark as read and move on. You can easily find it in other email applications later.
- Skip: Put this to the back of the queue to look at later.
- Reply: This is important and I need to reply now before continueing
