Keep Life Organized with the Top Mysask411 App-Friendly Features

May 19, 2021

Did you know? E-commerce sales have nearly doubled in the last year and I don’t know about you, but our household has ordered or purchased almost everything online in the last year – groceries, light bulbs, clothing, coffee, and more… you name it, we’ve bought it. And we can’t forget the service-based industries. The amount of times we’ve scoped out reviews and asked for quotes for our spur-of-the-moment projects has been plentiful.

It’s no secret everyone’s day-to-day has changed quite drastically and I think it’s safe to say some of our new habits (cough cough local online shopping) are here to stay! More and more people are turning to their phones, those lovely little handheld machines that make life EASY, for products and services instead of traditional brick and mortar.

Convenience is key these days. When you’re caught between a work video call, trying to remember grade 3 math and getting a load of laundry in, these top Mysask411 app (and mobile website) features will keep you afloat from home.    

  1. My Notes
  • Capture notes, estimates, who you spoke to, your fav menu items, or anything else you want to remember about a business. To add a note, tap on the pen and paper icon beside the business name. My personal favourite is organizing My Notes by Collection. By adding notes to a collection, you can group what you’ve recorded in a way that’s meaningful to you. I like to keep my preferred contractors for “All things home” in a collection – I need a reliable electrician and plumber at my fingertips.

Bonus: This feature is available on desktop, too!

2. Click to Call

  • Connect with what and who you need fast – link up with businesses over the phone directly from our mobile website or app.
  • Order that pizza, request a quote for landscaping, and fill your prescription all from the comfort of your couch.

3. Text a Business

  • Available only on the Mysask411 app, this feature gives you the ability to text businesses who have opted in to our Text a Business service straight from their business listings. This unique feature is free for any business listing with a mobile number.  
  • When you’re juggling multiple responsibilities, this is the most efficient way to get things done – shoot a text to the business and come back to the conversation when you’re ready.
