Other things to remember

Your application email address for the ArtsPool app is [Member handle] This address can also be found on your member page in the ArtsPool app. This address will create a new task any time you send it an email (unless you are replying to a notification related to an existing task).

Avoid using the application email address as a cc: on email chains because that will create a lot of redundant tasks (one for each reply). Instead, forward the item into the app for ArtsPool to work on once the back and forth with external parties is complete. Alternatively you can create a task and add your colleagues directly.

Add your application email address,, and to your contacts. This will help ensure that our email notifications don't end up in your junk mail folder. Naming your application email address contact "ArtsPool app" will help you work more quickly when creating new tasks via email.

Be sure not to email sensitive information (i.e. passwords or social security numbers). Use our password manager or contact your ArtsPool team member about the best way to get us the information.
