Don’t need email? Roll it up

To honor your support staff during Administrative Professionals Week (April 20-26), share this handy tool, which, as of year-end, had diverted more than a billion junk emails.

The tool is Unroll.Me. Every day, you or your staffer receives a “rollup” of email from lists. Each rollup contains a stack of screenshots; you can scroll and click through any of them to act on the email, or delete the whole rollup.

At the top of your rollup, and with every screenshot of rolled-up email, you can unsubscribe from new and existing email, roll it up or redirect it to your inbox—temporarily or for good.

Unroll.Me provided an eye-opening summary of its work in 2013:

Most unsubscribed: Among almost 2.5 million subscriptions that were unsubscribed from last year, the top was 1-800-Flowers.

Most rolled up: Top three were Hulu, at 61.6%, Amazon Local, at 46%, and Go Daddy, at 44.4%, meaning that customers want to hear from them but on their own terms, in a summary report and maybe not every day.

Most popular: The most common subscription emails, according to Unroll.Me, are Facebook, at 70% of rollup users, Google+, at 66.9%, Twitter, at 64.4%, and LinkedIn, at 62.1%.
