Hi, I need some help here.

I want to write an email to all my teammates(Mike, Alan, Michelle and Jade) for chasing some feedback from their client / clients, with the following list, can I write " Dear all, Please chase your clients for the feedback respectively." ? We will get only one feedback from each client, so I should say "feedback" instead of "feedbacks", right? I add " respectively" at the end, because I want them to chase their own client/clients, Is this the right word
  • Mike - Hallmark
  • Mike - Nike
  • Alan - DHL
  • Alan - Walmart,
  • Michelle - Best Buy
  • Jade - FedEx
thanks,

I'd say, "Please chase your respective clients for their feedback(s)."

I think of "feedback" here as uncountable. I believe "feedback," like "input," may be either countable or uncountable. "Uncountable" seems a little more appropriate here, but either would work.

Feedback is uncountable here.

Respectively is unneccesary as you are telling them to contact their own clients and they know who they are. You should only use 'respectively' when you need to clarify something that might otherwise cause confusion. - to point out that the order of two 'lists' relate and are important.

for example

John and Jane called Nike and Nikon. It could be that they both called both companies.

John and Jane called Nike and Nikon respectively. It is made clear that John calls Nike and Jane calls Nikon.

Your meaning is perfectly clear without this word.

Thank you, I understand it now.

Could you also kindly let me know how to use the word " accordingly" ? Pls give me some examples.

thanks,
Sarah
It's an adverb (describing a verb) which asks you to perform some task by following the directions which have been provided. Do the job according to (in accord[ance] with) the instructions which you find above.

Please read the instructions and fill out the form accordingly.

"Respectively" - What a great little word. It's like the cherry on top. You really don't need it, but it makes it look (and taste) ten times better.

Please re-read Nona's post and see if you still think it doesn't add clarity to the situation.
