Jott Integration

September 25, 2008

I’m pleased to announce that Jott has added a Premium Jott Link for Enleiten. While full signup instructions are here, all you really need to do is sign into your Jott account (post-beta, this requires some level of paid account), click “Add Jott Links”, choose “Premium Links”, and click “Add” next to the Enleiten icon. Feel free to change the link name if you’re so inclined, and check “Send SMS Response” if you would like to get a confirmation. Click save, and you’ll be briefly redirected back to Enleiten. If you’re not currently logged in, you’ll be prompted for your Enleiten login, otherwise you’ll immediately be redirected back to Jott. That’s it.

Now, just call into Jott, answer “Enleiten” (yes, they do know what it sounds like), and record your message. A new task will be added to your Enleiten inbox, with a link in the details back to the full audio.

Make Time Tracking Easier

May 15, 2008

I am becoming increasingly enamored of Jott.

If you haven’t tried it, you sign up with your cell phone, and add contacts. You can just call Jott, tell it who to send a message to, and leave a voice message. They’ll transcribe it (speaking clearly really, really helps…), and email both the text message and the recording to you or one of your contacts.

How does this help with billable hours? If you’re using time tracking on your computer, it’s easy enough to keep your application of choice open to mark time. If you’re on the road, however, try Jott. Call in and send yourself (or your assistant) a message with the start time and project name. Call in again on your way out the door. By the time you get back to your computer, you’ll probably already have emails documenting which jobs you worked on and how much time you spent working on them.

There are lots of other tips for using Jott on the Jotter blog.

And yes, an integration to let you Jott tasks to your Enleiten account is coming soon, we promise. Because we really want it, too.
