What is eProductivity?

Join your colleagues at MAPMG getting more done with less stress

What eProductivity can do for you:

Complaints about Lotus Notes are commonplace. Workers are often overwhelmed with the amount of information coming at them every day. This info contains many projects and actions, but Notes does not make it easy to keep track of these.

As a result, many Notes users at MAPMG usually can't . . .

  • Ever empty their inbox
  • Have peace of mind that they're not forgetting to do something
  • Keep a clear view of their commitments

In contrast, eProductivity gives Notes users the tools and training needed to easily . . .

  • Empty their inbox as often as needed
  • Maintain a clear view of everything that requires their attention, no matter how often it changes
  • Know what's most important to do in the moment

Here's what Eric Mack, the creator of eProductivity, has to say about what he's built:

"I've used Lotus Notes for over 20 years, and I'm very familiar with its problems. I created eProductivity as a way to solve many of those problems and give myself confidence that I'm doing what I need to do, when I need to do it."

David Allen, author of the international bestseller Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity, was also extensively involved in the design of eProductivity. Mr. Allen opens his book with this sentence:

"It's possible for a person to have an overwhelming number of things to do and still function productively with a clear head and a positive sense of relaxed control."
Thousands of stressed-out Notes users around the world have experienced this with eProductivity.

How does eProductivity work?


eProductivity acts like a "skin" that sits on top of Notes Mail to transform email and to-do's with productivity-enhancing features. In tech-speak, it's a template that's applied to your IBM Lotus Notes Mail file.

Here's how eProductivity transforms Lotus Notes Mail:

 Helps organize your Notes To-Do's
eProductivity comes pre-loaded with categories for tasks. These categories correspond to where tasks can be done: for example, "At Office," "At Computer," "At Phone," etc.
When tasks are organized into contexts this way, it's much easier to look at your contexts and see what you can do where you are, rather than sifting through your entire to-do list to find what you can do now.

 Facilitates quick and confident email processing
Most emails are just poorly-formatted tasks. eProductivity makes it quick and easy to turn emails into action items on your list.
As you can see below, eProductivity shows your to-do lists and email in one view. To create a to-do from an email, all you have to do is drag the email onto the list.

Drag email left to create a Project or Action; drag email right to link to an existing Project or Action or file it in a folder

 Helps you keep you focused on what you've decided is important
eProductivity's "Today view" helps you see, at a glance, all your tasks and projects needing attention today. You’ll spend less time organizing your tasks in Notes and more time checking them off.
Something needs to get today? One click marks it with the "Today" flag and it goes on your Today view.
That thing isn't important today anymore? One click removes the "Today" flag, leaving room for your new priorities.

The Today View provides a daily dashboard to help you stay on track with your critical projects and tasks

 Helps you keep on track with Weekly Reviews
eProductivity's built-in Weekly Review Coach takes you through a comprehensive and logical review of your papers, email, calendar, projects, and actions to help you make sure nothing falls through the cracks. It also includes our Mindsweep Coach to help you get everything off your mind – even stuff you didn't know was there.
