Time Management with Outlook 2007 and 2010

Time management may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you open your inbox, but our two new courses, Outlook 2010: Time Management with Calendars and Tasks and Outlook 2007: Time Management with Calendars and Tasks, suggest that email productivity is well within your grasp.

These courses are designed to help you create appointments and meetings with ease, use flagging and categories to corral all your inbox email, manage tasks and to-dos, and use Outlook Task List options.

Outlook 2007 users will appreciate author Gini Courter’s quick tip on how to create a task from an email (from chapter two of Outlook 2007: Time Management with Calendars and Tasks):

And if you’re using Outlook 2010, check out this handy method of viewing the task list and to-do list (from chapter three of Outlook 2010: Time Management with Calendars and Tasks) :

If your inbox gets a steady stream of email every day, you’ll also appreciate these courses’ solid tips for capturing work in Outlook. Another suggestion from Gini Courter is to sort the items that require your action by priority and the amount of time each will take. This sorting then determines whether you set up a task or a calendar appointment and how you take next steps. For more on this, lynda.com members should check out the Capturing work in Outlook movie in the introduction chapter of both Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2007 time management courses.

My new productivity motto: Enjoy your email, and make your calendar and tasks work for you in the new year!
