The Toby browser extension lives on every new tab page. This was designed purposely to help surface relevant information to you throughout the day. To use Toby, simply create a collection and drag any open tabs from the right into a collection - it will close the tab for you. As is Toby stores your tabs locally on your computer but we recommend creating a Toby account in order to activate sync and a ton of extra features like sharing. A Toby account also gives us the ability to provide restoration services on lost collections and tabs (within reason).
Toby is both a personal productivity and team collaboration tool. Teams that maximize the benefits of Toby the most are usually large and use a ton of tools across different departments. Toby’s strength is being able to speed dial the user into workflows or into important assets. Instead of using the search function on various tools (including email and chat) Toby helps navigate these different tools based on the tabs you’ve added. This also applies to users who use Toby for personal productivity, it’s the best way to access and retrieve content immediately.
A recent survey to Toby users has shown that we can save you up to 8 hours a week. If you think about the time it takes you to find a document or the file your coworker sent you 2 months ago, you can see how it can quickly add up. Toby is an entirely new way for modern teams to access resources and share knowledge seamlessly. It will save you a significant amount of time and money and even better allow you to do more important work.
There are 2 ways to create a Toby account. Sign up on the website and then install the extension or if you’ve already installed the extension from the Chrome store you can sign up within the app. If you choose to skip the account creation process you can still continue to use Toby, however all of your information will be stored locally. Meaning you won’t be able to access your tabs on a different computer.
To change your email address, please send us an email at email@example.com we will be able to do the swap within 24 hours or less.
Tags are a great way to organize your collections. There are many uses some of which include to-dos, clients, projects, and more. The maximum number of tags you can have are 8.
In the drop down menu select the tag you would like to delete or edit. Hover your mouse over the tag and on the left side you’ll see “EDIT TAG”.
Adding your company into Toby is possible. However, that section is currently being tested in a beta and will be released to the public later this year. This will likely be a paid feature unlocking the value of Toby for better team collaboration.
Every collection has a couple of different menu options such as “Open x tabs” or “Share” the “<>” allows you to drag the collections up and down.
We are working on an iOS reader app so that you can access your tabs on the go. Mobile is super important to us and we think you’ll find many new uses with the Toby app. Toby works great on touch screen laptops but not on tablets yet.
Sometimes when we push out a new update you won't get it right away. To ensure that your version of Toby is up to date follow these three easy steps:
Have no fear, your previously saved bookmarks are just around the corner!
To delete your Toby account, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org changes will come in effect within 24 hours.
Absolutely amazing, smooth, my new favorite extension. Saves massive resources and incredible organization. The joke in the creative world centers around who has the most tabs open, this is really a great design!
This extension is totally awesome. I'm a user that likes to keep tabs open rather than bookmark them (which creates a lot of clutter for me) which I then always seem to forget to revisit. Toby allows me to keep visual track of my interests and in effect is my personal "to do list" when it comes to follow-up and research. Thank you. This is by far the most useful extension I have ever come across to date.
Out of all of the "new tab" extensions I've tried, Toby is the absolute best and most useful. Tab management is a HUGE help for freelance writers like me and I'm super happy to have found such a great one. Thanks, team Toby!
