Try Our Manage Your Everyday with Outlook E-Learning Video Description

Rather than teach you "our way" to organize your life, Organizing with Outlook will identify key organizational concepts inherent in all time management approaches, and show what Outlook can do to meet your particular needs. From automating the sorting process, to prioritizing your tasks, to using the outlook calendar on a mobile device or your day planner of choice, this course will reveal the most effective tools to incorporate into your current organizational system.

Of course, everyone has their own way of trying to stay organized, and there are hundreds of philosophies on the way to achieve an empty inbox, clean desk, and efficient task list or daily plan. Nevertheless, we find ourselves constantly buried beneath the pile, spending hours each day dealing with the influx, and never finishing everything. Regardless of your approach, Microsoft Outlook is probably a central figure in this drama, and this course will explore how it can be used to get more done in less time.

  • Navigating in Outlook 
  • Discuss the four main structures (Mail, Calendar, Tasks, and Contacts) of Outlook and how they interact.
