Tackling Email Overload with Gmail Time Management and Organizing Techniques - Technology Workshop

How many emails do you get a day? After you have read the email, does it sit in your Inbox and you never look at it again? Can you find what you are looking for … quickly? We have a limited amount of time and this workshop will give you tools and techniques to streamline your interaction with your email so you can have more time for other important projects. Using organizational techniques of labels, stars, and filters, as well as time management best practices, you will learn to keep what’s important right in front of you and be able to quickly find what you are looking for.

Target audience: Anyone using Gmail who would like to learn how to control their Inbox and get more organized.

Workshop length: 1 hour, plus an additional half hour for open Q & A.

Workshop format: Instructor-led demonstration and lecture. Participants will be encouraged to participate hands-on and apply the skills on their Inbox during the workshop. There will be time to ask questions. A handout will be provided.

Topics include:

  • The 4 D’s of Email Time Management

  • Getting organized with labels, stars, and filters

  • Turning an email into an event or task

  • How to get that email back when you hit “send” too quickly

  • Using canned responses to store frequent responses

  • Timesaving keyboard shortcuts

At the completion of this productivity workshop, participants will have been given tools to organize their Inbox in a more effective manner and apply the techniques to their own work settings that make sense for them.
