Snooze & Reminders

Most people have more work to do than they can get done, and it can often lead to difficulty focusing on what to do, when to do it, and who it needs to be done by. If this problem sounds like one you face daily, Spike’s Snooze feature will become your new favorite tool for getting control of your Email, Notes, Files, and Tasks.  Schedule a reminder to respond to that message or task for a set date and time.

How to Snooze an entire thread

Use this when you want to attend to a thread later. This will make it appear at a specific time that you choose.

 

Mobile

  1. Swipe left the thread you wish to snooze.

  2. Tap on ‘More’.

  3. Pick a time you wish to snooze from the existing list or ‘Choose a time’.

The snoozing days can be customized to your preference through the Settings. A unique Spike feature is snoozing to “Someday“. This is for tasks/threads that don’t have a specific due date. You will still be able to see them in your task list but they won’t appear in your feed.

 

Desktop

  1. Right click the message you wish to snooze or hover over it and click the downward arrow that appears.

  2. Tap on the ‘Later’ icon later icon

  3. Pick a time you wish to snooze from the existing list or ‘Custom snooze’.

Snoozing to ‘Someday’ is a unique Spike feature. If you have a Task or a message that you need to deal with or get back to later, but it doesn’t have a specific due date, this is what snoozing to ‘Someday’ is for. ‘Someday’ will hide the Task/Thread from your Inbox feed and it’ll wait in your Task list and Snoozed list. That way, when you feel inspired to get things done, you can open your lists and get through those tasks when you have time.
