With Contextinator, you can:
- Access and manage all the information related to a project from a single page
- Save and restore browser tabs for each project
- Work on multiple projects simultaneously and easily switch between them
- Get a big picture of your projects to better plan your work
- Avoid distractions in your email inbox, only look at unread email for a project
What is a Project?
A project is what you make it. It can be a holiday you're planning to Puerto Rico, a course you're taking in School, your PhD thesis, a hobby project or web browsing you do for fun.
Each project may have several kinds of information associated with it:
Window - Each project has a single window
Tabs - Any tabs you open in the project window belong to that project. These tabs are saved, so the next time you open a project, they will be restored. You can close a project at any time, without worrying about losing tabs.
Apps - For each project, you can define filters for existing applications like Gmail, Evernote, etc. For example, you can say that a Gmail Label belongs to a project. When you visit Gmail in a project, you will be automatically redirected to that label.
Bookmarks - You can create bookmarks specific to a project.
People - You can add people to a project by entering their email addresses. When you visit a project's homepage, we will show unread Gmail messages from those users.
Tasks - Contextinator comes with a task manager. You can add tasks to a project, which are easily accessible when you are web browsing.
