=== Call-To-Action Reminders by Astrid === Contributors: firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org Donate link: http://weloveastrid.com/store Tags: productivity,posts,reminder,social,calendar,to-do,task,remindme Requires at least: 3.3 Tested up to: 3.4 Stable tag: prod License: GPLv2 or later License URI: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html A plugin that makes it easy to create Remind Me links and buttons within posts and Call-to-Action reminders at the bottom of posts == Description == # Astrid Remind Me ### Help readers act on suggestions This plugin is a zero configuration plugin that allows authors to add Remind Me links within their posts and Call-to-Action reminders at the bottom of each post. When readers click on links they can quickly add advice advice to their to-do lists, calendar, and will get a reminder via email with a link back to the original post. When the plugin is activated authors have can: ### Remind Me Links Add Astrid Remind Me links within the body of the post. Remind me links help readers look like any other link in your post. By default they also include the prefix "✓ Remind Me: " but this can be removed. When adding a Remind Me link the only information you need to add is the text that will be displayed to the user when they receive the reminder. Example Reminder: > Buy flowers early for mothers day The author may also add an optional note: Example Note: > Check RetailMeNot for coupon codes before you send them! > http://www.retailmenot.com/view/ftd.com Finally you can specify when the reminder should be sent to the user. By default the reminder is sent 3 days after the user clicks but this can also be set to calendar date in yyyy-mm-dd format. Example > To make sure the arrive in time for Mother's day on Sunday May 12th the date might be: > 2012-05-01 ### Remind Me Buttons Remind Me Buttons are identical to Remind Me links but appear as a button. There are three button styles and three button sizes to choose from! ### Call-to-Action Reminders Astrid Call-to-Action are probably the easiest way to help readers act on a post. Add the Call-To-Action at the bottom of each post as a quick way to summarize the next steps readers can take. ### Use of Astrid.com Services ## url shortener When adding a Remind Me button to your post Astrid will send the reminder to Astrid.com to create a custom short code url. eg http://astrd.co/QtM5gy The short code provides a simple metric as to how many clicks your link has generated. You can view how many clicks on the shortcode by adding a plus "+" to the end of the url. eg http://astrd.co/QtM5gy+ ## tracking metrics by blog posts including Remind Me buttons This plugin also counts how many readers have viewed your post that has included Remind Me links and Call-To-Actions. This is not a replacement for Jetpack by WordPress, Google Analytics, or other ways to monitor your site traffic. It does provide anonymous user statistics so with a plugin update you will be able to see how many readers intend to act and what percentage are successfully completing your suggestions. At this time, no account creation is required. No statistics are recorded or information is sent to Astrid.com for posts that do not inlcude Call-To-Actions or Remind Me links. == Installation == 1.
