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.
