Productivity MethodsEdit

IQTell was designed to fit in with the Getting Things Done (GTD) productivity methods. Users may have had utilized GTD lists, such as Inbox, Actions, Projects, Someday, Ticklers, and Reference information to process their Inbox items into relevant GTD lists.[7][8]

Using the web app, iOS and/or Android apps, users could deploy macros/shortcuts to quickly process their email.[9] Email was turned into tasks (actions), projects, etc.[7] The original email was removed from the email inbox.[9] The email became a part of the items created (e.g. actions, project, etc.) and could also be viewed in the All Mail folder (if Gmail), or the Archive folder (if non-Gmail). Users had flexibility to use the out-of-the-box macros/shortcuts as well as edit/create additional macros.

IQTELL features included email, calendars, contacts, list management, sharing and collaboration with team members. All of the features were compatible with commonly used organization software such as Evernote[10] and iCloud.
