Outlook is far more than email.
Have you ever found yourself saying, “if only I understood the computer programs I already have in place,” life would be easier?
Outlook is a robust corporate application that was built to make email and your life easy. Many of our clients had no idea how to use all the program has to offer.
Today’s quick tips will help you get a handle on Outlook right now and start using all the program has to offer.
Follow these steps and you’ll be on your way to removing paper clutter and becoming the effective professional you strive to be. Being disorganized is not a luxury we have any more if we want our employees and organization to be on top of their game.
Stop rewriting the same email over and over. Save yourself time with a Power Draft.
In a new email message, type the guts of your message. Give it a general subject such as “Client Thank You” (the subject line name will be used for your reference only).
Select File, then save to keep it in your draft folder. Don’t use save as.
When you need to write another email, go to your drafts folder in Outlook, highlight the draft click hit Control-C (to copy it), then Control-V (to paste it).
Open the duplicate email, add an introduction or personal note, change the subject line to be appropriate and send it!
