Session 1's Topic is called General; what will that cover, you ask?
Ever wished you did not have to look for a command or get to it faster? Or don't like how things are displaying? How about those categories; are you getting the most out of them? Got too much e-mail and searches take too long; ever considered managing your folders differently to find things faster? And what if you could have incoming e-mail go directly to specific folders?
To get answers to these questions we will cover customizing the Quick Access Toolbar, customizing and using Categories, changing your view in e-mail, calendar, and tasks through the Layout tools, look at customizing folders to keep you organized, and touch on setting up rules to automate processing incoming mail.
Session 2 will touch on calendars, tasks, and contacts
Did you know you could have multiple calendars overlaying to keep business and personal obligations separated yet visible at the same time? Have you ever considered using recurring appointments to keep you organized? Find your day is getting overbooked? What to use, task or calendar for one time or recurring obligations? Ever looked for a contact and couldn't find it? Are you using groups to push out mass e-mails? Ever missed a contact's birthday?
During this session you will learn how to create and use multiple calendars, take advantage of the recurrence tool, determine if task or calendar is the better choice for you, establish conventions and best practice for setting up contacts, create contact groups, and learn how to make the best of the fields in contacts to build stronger relationships.
Session 3 will focus on e-mail
This topic is a standalone because we all receive so many e-mails and we all wished we could process them more efficiently. In a perfect world handling an item only once would be ideal, however with e-mails that may be unrealistic to expect.
Do you use more than one e-mail account? Are you missing deadlines? Are others missing deadlines? Ever flagged an e-mail without a subject line and wished you could change the subject? Did you know that with some simple steps to can keep your e-mail folders uncluttered and manage hard drive space? Why would you use BCC and not CC in some instances?
Learn how to add e-mail accounts, take advantage of flags, categories, and reminders to never miss a deadline again, change the subject line in the task list so it makes sense to you, properly use the mailbox cleanup, archive and cleanup command to stay on top of space/file size, and find out when it makes sense to use BCC versus CC in e-mails.
