How are Active Followups Calculated?

Note: This only applies to FollowUpThen Version 3

An Active Followup is one that is scheduled in the future. During any given month, a followup may be active for 1 minute (1min@fut.io), or it may have been scheduled years ago, but still pending. Each counts as an active followup.

In other words, how many unique followups appeared on your My Followups page during a given month?

Note: Postponing an existing followup does not count as an additional active followup.

Here are some examples:

Example 1:

  • You schedule two followups – one due this month, one due next
  • Active Followups:  2

Example 2:

  • You start the month with 1 pending followup, scheduled last year.
  • You schedule 5 more
  • Active Followups:  6

Example 2:

  • At the first of the month, you have 300 pending followups
  • They all become due the current month, but you schedule 50 more
  • Active followups: 350 

Example 3:

  • You start the month with 10 recurring followups.
  • During the month, you schedule 5 followups
  • Active followups: 15

Example 4:

  • You start the month with 50 non-recurring followups, all due next year.
  • Active Followups: 50

Example 5:

  • A user starts the month with 50 recurring followups, each scheduled to reoccur every day.
  • Total Active Followups: 50
