Cozi is one of my favorite tools because it does a fantastic job keeping me organized throughout the year. I’m a huge fan of the helpful to-do and grocery list features and also the shared family calendar that updates in real time and accessed via the web, mobile app for Android and iPhone on the go, and synced with my husband’s Outlook calendar, my Google Calendar, and integrates the kids’ school calendar. Now Cozi has introduced Cozi Contacts, a way the entire family can access important contacts from any device.
Cozi Contacts is a shared address book designed for families that allows users to import addresses from your phone or from other programs like Excel or Outlook. It’s an easy way to gather all the other names and addresses you have scattered across devices, written in address books, and stored in desk drawers and finally put them in one place where everyone who needs them, can access them easily. The best thing about Cozi Contacts is that once they’re there, they’re there in an easy to access format for good!
Now’s the perfect time to give Cozi Contacts a try especially if you love the tradition of sending holiday cards but are feeling the pressure to get them ordered, addressed, and sent, and are scrambling to put together your holiday card recipient list. 68% of us send photo cards for the holidays but 51% of us also rank this holiday task as one of our top three least favorite holiday activities! Maybe it’s because 60% of us hand address the envelope or loathe the annual challenge of tracking down addresses and ensuring they’re all up to date. This year you can streamline the process by adding addresses to your Cozi Contacts holiday cards list so they’ll be waiting for you organized in one place, year after year.
Cozi is so sure that their new Contacts feature is the best place to keep your holiday cards list, they’re putting the Get It Done! Holiday Card Guarantee behind it. They’re so confident that they can help you get your holiday cards sent by December 25 that if you don’t, they’ll help you buy Happy New Year cards to mail by providing a $20 gift card to Shutterfly and free shipping.
It’s easy to get started! Cozi Gold members have automatic access to the Cozi Contracts feature but everyone can take advantage of the 14 day free trial to test it out before upgrading to Cozi Gold, a steal at $29.99/year.
Start by building your address book by importing your contacts from your phone then use Cozi Contacts to help you with your holiday cards. Here are three ways it can help!
- Track sent and unsent cards in the Notes or with a new category.
- Use the “last updated” timestamp to see the last time addresses were updated – you’ll never wonder again which addresses are current!
- Export all your addresses at once for printing labels. Before you tackle labels yourself, check out these time-saving tips.
If you don’t want to deal with hand-addressing address labels and can’t see paying the pricey per-card feel that some online card services provide, just send Cozi Contacts your holiday card address list and they’ll send back a ready-to-print file. What a great holiday timesaver especially for those who hate dealing with mail merge, formatting, and other label-printing mishaps!
