We are all familiar with that feeling of apprehension when we open our emails after a period of time away. Be it just one day or several weeks we know we will be faced with the digital equivalent of a pile of letters, hundreds or even thousands deep, sitting disorganised in our inbox.1
And much like a pile of letters, these emails have no care for your priorities and are instead a list of everyone else’s, the latest email in, sitting proudly at the top. Thus ensues the methodical procedure of dealing with them one by one:
read, leave for later,
We are all frustrated with email, whether we realise it or not.
The problems here are numerous: you are viewing emails from every corner of your work and personal life in one go, thus context switching every 10 seconds; you are seeing the end of a chain first, often with no knowledge of what was discussed before; there is no hierarchy for emails directed to you vs those you are copied in; you do not know if some are urgent or require an action or if they are simply an ‘FYI’.2 The list goes on.
Knowa is designed to provide a clearer structure to content
Knowa delivers a better solution for catching up, which enables everyone to focus on what they want, when they want and thus catch up on their own terms.
Knowa achieves this through its structure: whether used for a pension scheme, corporate board, M&A deal, RFP or other project, information and more importantly, updates, flow into defined areas that are relevant to each client, topic, workstream, sub-committee and so on.
Knowa's structure and notifications provide a clearer overview of updates than the consolidated list of emails in an inbox
The result is a structured stream that feeds updates on a single topic, from the start. This means you can dive into a client or work stream without being distracted by the others and ensures you catch up in the right order so you see the full story, not just the outcome.

Coupled with the ability to mention people in messages, including ‘must read’ and ‘must vote’ actions, you can be guided to discussions and messages that immediately require your action. The returning executive can be sure she sees the amended proposal that requires her sign off and the returning trustee can be sure he doesn’t miss the votes on the member cases.
Calmly catch up with Knowa
So whether you’re checking in to make sure your team’s on track, or catching up on after some time off, you can be assured Knowa will give you the ability to do so intelligently and effectively.
Tip: Star a message to save it for actioning later.
