In many online calendar apps, such as Google Calendar and Outlook.com, you can get a daily email of all your appointments for the day. It’s one email, and it contains a digest view of your entire day.
In this week’s Monday Productivity Pointers, I’ll show you what the email looks like, and how to enable the feature in both Google Calendar as well as Outlook.com.
The best part about getting a morning email is that it arrives in your inbox at about 5:00 a.m. I love this because I can wake up and see what my schedule is while I have my morning coffee. I don’t have to worry about the fact that the one time I forget to check my calendar in the morning will be the one day I have an early appointment!
Having a calendar is only as effective as how often you check it; sometimes the 15-minute reminder you set is not enough time for you to get to your appointment before it takes place. A morning email containing a rundown of my entire day gives me the jumpstart to plan accordingly and get there smoothly!
So watch this week’s free video, and check back next week for more Monday Productivity Pointers.
