Overview of the Interactions View

Functions highlighted

You can access the interactions view by tapping on the “chat” symbol in the single occasion view.

Interactions are about your communication and impressions with the people around you. It’s about planning and documenting you interaction with your family, friends and people you meet.

In the interaction view you can view, manage, add, rate and mark your interactions with people of the occasion. Because the interactions have their own time dimension there is a date selector.

You can also switch to the occasion and notification view and you can also use the three dot menu to delete and stop the occasion or visit the old interactions.

Following information are displayed

  • General features of the occasion view (three dot menu, icons to switch the view)
  • Interaction per person with picture, first name, last name, category, description, start date and end date
  • Option to mark, rate and edit an interaction

Main features in comparison to other apps

There are interactions at all.

Most apps and even desktop solutions use appointments or events as one dimensional time based elements. You can create an event and you maybe can add people to it. But that’s all. ContactShip offers interaction as additional time dimension. Through interactions you can add an unlimited amount of people to an occasion and you can use them to really document what has happened. One person can even be in an occasion multiple times, for example if you had different communications during the event. This offers you a lot of additional possibilities.

Create a real relationship history per contact and social circle.

Because interactions are related to time based elements (occasions) and a person you can create a real relationship history per contact. And because you can connect different people to each occasion you will achieve a perfect overview of your social circles and encounters. You document once but achieve both.
