ABOUT THE EVENT

Course Overview

If you're like millions of other professionals, you probably use Microsoft Outlook every day to manage your email, calendar and to-do's. It's available for Windows, Mac, mobile and there's even a web version. So there's no excuse not to be organized. Or so the theory goes. The reality is email overload, missed deadlines and calendars so full you have no room to breathe.

For many people, managing their email, their calendar and their to-do's has become a full-time job in itself. In this session you will learn how to control Outlook, rather than letting it control you.

Areas Covered

You're probably thinking "I use Outlook every day. I know how to send and receive emails. I know how to add appointments to my calendar and I know how to add items to the task list. What more is there to learn?"

In this session you'll learn how, used in the right way, Outlook can save you time, help you to gain more control, improve your response time and allow you to keep up with the never-ending stream of critical actions and due dates!
