We will be moving some things around this evening, starting around 9 PM Eastern. Parts of Nirvana may go offline for brief windows, but if you’re already logged in before we start, chances are you won’t notice anything. Will update this post as time frames firm up.
We’ve been working on this for awhile, and we’re happy to announce that you can now direct email to your Nirvana Inbox as a Bcc: recipient. :-)
Say what? OK, in case you didn’t know, Nirvana lets you create actions by email. When you send an email to your Nirvana account, the email subject becomes the action’s name, and the email body becomes the action’s notes. You can find your Inbox address on your Nirvana account dashboard, or by selecting Getting Started from the pulldown menu on the top-right of the screen (when you’re logged in to https://app.nirvanahq.com/).
While you could always send yourself an email as a normal To: or Cc: recipient, you can now include your Nirvana inbox address using the Bcc: field, which comes in handy when you’re sending an email to someone and want to send a copy to your Nirvana Inbox without your recipients knowing about your Nirvana Inbox email address.
An added bonus: this also means that you can set up forwarding rules in mail apps such as Gmail to (for example) automatically forward incoming email with specific search patterns to also arrive in your Nirvana inbox.
If you have any handy use-cases or tricks for using bcc, please be sure to share the knowledge. :-)
Update – Reminder:
For those folks that have been with us for a while – if you are still using the old Email-to-Inbox addresses pointing to the Nirvanahq.com domain, you need to make sure you update to use the Nirvanahq.in domain (the portion of the address prior to the @ symbol remains the same). The .com addresses had been deprecated for some time, but with this change are no longer valid.
It’s time for the long overdue update on whats happening with Android.
After some discussion, and looking at where we’ve got to with Android to date, we’ve decided to abandon the current direction we were taking with the Android app. Instead, we’ve decided to go with the fine folks at WhereCloud to develop the Android version of Nirvana.
In the end, it is the right choice, and should lead to a stronger product on that platform. Thanks to all the beta testers to date who have shared feedback with us. For those of you on Android, you can continue using the beta if it helps you out on your day to day.
While we’re loath to give dates, I can tell you the timeline currently on the boards should see a v1.0 in about 2 months, barring any major hiccups.
Justa quick post to say that we’re all back in the office, rearing to go, and to wish everyone a prosperous and Happy New Year. :-)
We’d like to wish everyone a happy, relaxing and safe holiday season. We’re looking forward to spending some quality time with friends and family over the coming days, and we hope you are able to as well. 2012 was a difficult year for many around the world, but here’s raising our glass in a toast to a brighter future for all in 2013 and beyond. Peace.
