Messenger and Email integrations

Random ideas, thoughts, or tasks can come up at any point, and that’s great. 💡 But we need to have a system to capture them fast, so that they don’t stick in our head and distract us from our current focus. That’s why we have a second brain. 🧠

With this release we introduce a frictionless input to your second brain: our input integrations. We bring Capacities into your pocket and into your inbox. You can now save text, messages, images, files, or voice messages by simply sending an email to Capacities, or open a chat with Capacities on Telegram or Facebook Messenger – and soon many more.

Save messages from the Telegram messenger

Telegram is our most powerful integration. Save text, images, files or voice messages to your daily note by sending a message to Capacities. You can automatically tag and name your media files or even send voice messages. Learn more.
