You can now search for an older message.  The search function examines both the subject field and the text of the message.  Multiple search words are handled on an “or” basis, so if any of your search words are  found the message is returned to you.

The wild card character is the percent sign.  Searching for “Sear%” will find any word beginning with “Sear”.  Searching for “%sear” will find any word ending with “sear”.  Searching for “%sear%” will find any word with “sear” in it.



New Features

August 23, 2009

This week we spent some time cleaning up presentation and added two new features.

First, we have added an “Add Recipients” button when you are reviewing mail that you have sent from your circle.  You might want to use this if you have a standard note or file that you want to send to everyone in your circle.  From time to time new people will join.  Use this button to bring up a list of all current members of the circle that have not had the message sent to them.   You can then choose who will receive the note.

The second feature concerns the “heads up”.  If you send a “heads up” along with a message, the system will automatically (through your e-mail) let you know when the recipient has read the message.  Right now we are calling this the “reverse heads up”.  What do you think a good name would be?

Several have asked if they are allowed to create and use their own circles.  By all means.  We need to learn from your experiences.

Invitation Process

August 5, 2009

You can now send multiple invitations to join your circle.  Enter the e-mail addresses separated by a semi-colon. allows you to invite up to 15 people at a time. 

Invitations are now treated like individual messages.  You will see them in your list of sent messages and will be able to use the “Trail” function once the invitee accepts your invitation.
