Overview of the Single Occasion View

Occasions are elements to structure your interactions with the people you meet or communicate, and you can also use them to create future reminders and appointments.

From here you can view and add interactions, set notifications or change and delete the occasion. There are also the options to rate and mark.

  • For recurring occasions the original date and the end condition
  • Category, mark and rating
  • Options to edit or delete an occasion and to stop the repetitions

Main features in comparison to other apps

Occasions and interactions use two independent timelines.

This benefit become especially visible for recurring occasions. While ContactShip creates only one occasion and calculates it’s repetitions in the scheduler, the interactions with the contacts are saved as one data entry per interaction and they run in a separate time dimensions. Therefore an interaction can starte before and stop after an occasion or an interaction can stop during an occasion. This offers a huge flexibility.

Display your likes and dislikes: Ratings on all dimension.

While other apps make it difficult to keep the overview ContactShip offers different dimension to structure the data. Rating is a very important part of it. You can rate how you like the occasion, you can also include a rating per interaction with the people you meet during the occasion and you can rate the persons overall.
