Bill clicks the Drop-off button, signs in with his valid Google Accounts email, and drops off a note for Jason:
Bill can optionally click the "Send email notification" checkbox to cause Quick Bit Notes to send a notification email to Jason (at the email address specified). In that cause, Jason will receive a notification in his email as shown below:
Date: Fri, 16 Oct 2009 17:12:14 +0000 Subject: Your New Bit Note From: firstname.lastname@example.org To: email@example.com I sent you a new Bit Note. You can retrieve it by clicking the following link: http://quickbitnotes.appspot.com/mybitnotes
Otherwise, Bill can notify Jason of the Quick Bit Note waiting for him using any independent means he likes, Twitter, Facebook, telephone, etc. informing Jason to visit the following link to pick up the note: http://quickbitnotes.appspot.com/mybitnotes
Note: the recipient's email (
firstname.lastname@example.org in the case above)
must be a valid "Google Accounts" email because the recipient must sign
in to Quick Bit Notes with that email in order to pick up the note.
Not sure what kind of Google account you have?
Here's how Google explains it:
If you're able to sign in to Gmail and Google calendar, but not the Google Accounts homepage, you may be using Google Apps, but not Google Accounts. If you're able to sign in on the Google Accounts homepage, you have a Google Account.
In simple terms: If you're not sure what kind of address your friend has, send to their @gmail.com address to be sure it will work with Quick Bit Notes. Thank Google for all this confusion.
Jason logs in and clicks the "Pick Up" button. All Quick Bit Notes dropped off for Jason are displayed in a list:
Jason clicks the note to view it:
Note that Jason can now Reply to send a Quick Bit Note reply to Bill or Delete to delete the note (permanently).
