This training session focuses on the email aspect of Outlook. In this session you'll learn how, used in the right way, Outlook can save you time, help you to gain more control over your mailbox, improve your response time and allow you to keep up with the never-ending stream of critical actions and due dates.
For most business users (and many home users too), Microsoft Outlook has become the standard application for managing emails, calendar appointments and to-dos. With an abundance of features and versions for desktop and mobile, there's really no excuse not to be organized. Or so the theory goes.
With the average office worker receiving over 100 emails per day, the reality for most people is email overload, missed deadlines and calendars so full you have no room to stop, take stock and smell the roses (as the saying goes).
Why should you attend?
You're probably reading this thinking "I use Outlook every day. I know how to send and receive emails. What more is there to learn?"
But just stop and think. How much time are you wasting searching for information stored in Outlook? Could your mailbox be better organized? Is your Inbox out of control? Are you drowning in a sea of emails?
Attend this training if you want to take control of your Outlook mailbox rather than letting it control you!
