  1. Reducing: reducing the volume of inbound messages
  2. Filtering: automatically removing, moving, or filing certain types of communication
  3. Converting: switching emails into meetings or to-do items
  4. Prioritizing: triaging the actions inside the emails and knowing what to do next
  5. Writing: responding quickly with emails that are actually read
  6. Scheduling: blocking out time to work on email without having it take over your day
  7. Alternating: using other tools except email to complete certain tasks
  8. Speeding: using templates, quicksteps, multi-actions, and short keys to perform email tasks more efficiently
  9. Emptying: learning a step-by-step process to get to Inbox Zero every day (where do they go?)
  10. Saving: stop using email folders and find what you want when you want it (no, your inbox is not a filing system either)

Book this session if you’ve ever asked yourself, “What do I do when I…” or “How do I…”

  • Already have an appointment on my calendar and someone sends another email related to it. How do I keep from copying/pasting all the time?
  • Want to copy an appointment from one day to another in one click?
  • Update the Start Date on a Task without opening the Task?
  • Have a Task already created, and then I get an email with additional instructions about it. How do I merge the two?
  • See my calendar while I’m in an email, so I don’t have to keep switching back and forth?
  • Am right in the middle of typing an email and promise someone I will do something. How can I make a reminder about that while I’m creating the email so I don’t forget?
  • Have thousands of emails in my inbox (I’ve been using my inbox like a filing cabinet) and am feeling overwhelmed?
  • Covet “Inbox Zero” but have no idea what that means or how to get there?
  • Want to put an appointment from my calendar directly on to someone else’s calendar without sending a meeting invitation?
  • Save my emails using a logical framework without creating a bunch of useless file folders I never reference?
  • Sent someone an email and don’t want to forget to follow up or try to remember to get the answer. How can I have the system notify me?
  • Have a question to ask a group of people, and I want them to “vote” without getting a million “Reply All” answers.
  • Want to keep my inbox empty but can’t keep up? I need a new processing methodology and email organizing system!
  • Want to reduce my inbox of all duplicate conversations without losing anything that has new content?
  • Only keep the last couple months of emails in my mailbox, while archiving the older data, but still be able to pull up my old messages.
  • Execute multiple commands at one time for an email, such as reply, print, and delete.
  • Stop copying myself on replies, so I can file and find emails again?
  • Only want to be alerted when important people send me messages and ignore the rest?
