An Online PA Who Works for Free

Sign up and start getting reminders for professional and personal tasks.

By Preeti Vasishtha

Need a personal assistant who works free of charge and never asks for sick days? Then, meet Sandy at www.iwantsandy.com—a free personal assistant system that works by email.

Sandy can send you reminders in a daily digest, text message, or as an event on your calendar.
Simply sign up at www.iwantsandy.com/signup and you will receive a personal email address. Now, send emails to your personal address and “Sandy” will send you reminders at the time you requested. Make sure that you begin your sentence with “Remind” or “Remember.” If you need to add an item to a task list, just email it and the system will add it. Add the “@weekly” tag and you can get a weekly reminder. You also can get a daily email with tasks for the day.

Here are some of the professional things Sandy can help you remember:

  • Remind me I have a marketing meeting on 3/14 at 1 p.m.
  • Remember that my United mileage number is abcde12345@travel
  • Remind me about my yoga class on Tuesday, 8-9 am@weekly
  • Remember JFK to SFO, United #302 Mon 3pm EST - 5p.m. PST @travel @“West Coast Sales Conference”

You also can ask Sandy to help you with personal tasks such as:

  • Remind me to refill my prescription tomorrow @todo
  • Remember to put the porch light on a timer @travel, @Hawaii, @todo
  • Remind us to call mom on her birthday on 9/16/07 @yearly @birthday
  • Remember the plumber’s number is 888-888-8888
  • Remember Pat’s wife's name is Christine

Sandy can send you reminders in a daily digest, text message, or as an event on your calendar.
