Earlier this week we have launched Tagwolf version 1.6. This latest version, which is free for existing users, makes Tagwolf available to all Office users by adding support for Office 2013 and 64 bits versions of Office and further improves the features that we have added to the previous version. In this post we’ll give you a head’s up on this new release and also share some of our longer term projects with you.
Smoother User Experience
Besides the support for the additional Office (2013 and 64 bits) versions, the main changes compared to version 1.5 are further improvements in the way Tagwolf displays and lets you choose the right folders. Tagwolf now supports creating, deleting and renaming folders right from within the Tagwolf user interface. This can be done during filing, so that the disruption of your workflow is minimized. We have also added some features to guarantee that the folder you need is readily available even if Tagwolf cannot predict it: Folder Boost makes sure that newly created folders are always displayed as a filing option and Pinned Folders allow you to make certain folders permanently available as a filing option.
Finally we have also extended the conversation filing feature: 1-Click Conversation Filing can now be set as default mode of operation and File Conversation on Reply allows you to file the entire conversation when replying to an email in the conversation.
With the number of potential user configurations increasing, ensuring a smooth integration of Tagwolf in all possible environments, at an optimal performance level becomes challenging. We have added configuration options that offer trade-offs between slightly decreased functionality and improved stability and performance, for cases where you would observe stability issues. We have also added the Retrain Existing Folders feature that allows a swift recovery of folder data in case of problems.

In closing, we would like to give you a glimpse of the longer term future. We are always trying out new ideas all revolving around the use of machine learning to help in coping with information overload. One of these ideas is email labelling, an idea we have been playing around with from the beginning: use the same predictive technology to help users who want to apply labels or categories to their emails (the “Gmail scenario”).
We’re also closely following what’s happening in the Microsoft world and one of the major movements there is Office 365. We are tempted step into this area with a browser-based version of Tagwolf that will work with OWA and Office 365, to bring the potential of stress-free email management to even more users.
Most of these ideas are in the stage of early prototyping and before taking the next steps we’re definitely interested in your feedback:
Do you think any of the ideas above would be useful for you? Do you think of any other extensions or new features that would improve your Tagwolf experience?
Just let us know your thoughts on this and, in the meantime, we hope that this new Tagwolf release will continue to help you keep your inbox under control!
