Mood 24/7… Now with E-mail reminders

Photo of a mailbox to signify that Mood 24/7 now has E-mail remindersOver the past 10 months, it’s become clear that text messages just don’t work for some people. They either don’t have a text plan, have a plan that makes it hard to receive texts from a shortcode, or don’t live in the U.S. We’ve been listening. I’m happy to announce that Mood 24/7 now allows users to set up E-mail reminders in lieu of text message reminders, giving you three ways now to track and update your mood on a daily basis.

Please note that if you’re happy receiving text messages from Mood 24/7, then this change will not affect you in any way. However, if you would like to start receiving E-mail reminders from Mood 24/7, instead of text message reminders, then this new feature is for you. It’s important to understand that if you opt in to start receiving E-mail reminders from Mood 24/7, they will work exactly the same way that the text message reminders work. However, instead of receiving a text message from Mood 24/7 once a day, you’ll receive an E-mail.

The daily E-mail has a link that leads to a secure web form where you’ll enter your numerical mood rating and optional comments. Clicking Post will submit your update to your account, and then you’re done.

GET STARTED WITH E-MAIL REMINDERS

new account If you’re creating a new Mood 24/7 account, then simply select E-mail for your Daily Mood Prompt and you will receive E-mails from Mood 24/7 at the time you specify, each day.
