About This Class

In this class, you will learn to make the most out of your working day by working efficiently with Microsoft Outlook! Many working professionals spend a large amount of their time on reading and answering emails, and unfortunately, waste too much time without getting things done. By using the tasks function in MS Outlook, I will show you how to increase your productivity when reading, answering and transferring emails. I personally, save at least one hour per day with this strategy, compared to how I've worked before (with notes and paper)! 


Table of Contents 

After covering the basic concept of working with tasks, as well as the process itself , I will show you how to set up your own Microsoft Outlook account and how to work with it in a way that saves you around one or two hours a day. As a bonus video, I will also give you some tips and tricks on how to write emails that help you and your recipient to work more efficiently. 

Who is this Class for 

This class is for everyone working with Microsoft Outlook, no matter if working freelance/as a entrepreneur or as an employee. You don’t need any wide knowledge of how to work with Outlook, as I will cover all the steps including how to set-up along the way. It helps you to improve your Work Life Balance, by focusing on getting things done rather than remembering every task that's still pending. With this system you will spend less time on reading and archiving emails, but on actually completing the tasks that come from emails. It also helps working professionals with many different projects/clients/teams and heterogenous tasks to stay on track of various requirements and actors.

Please note that the Class Files are uploaded in the "Your Project" section of this class. You will find a small summary of the process, the steps on how to create a task and the slide to priorizing and scheduling for your personal use.
