Why do you need this?
In today’s world, a lot of business communication is happening via email. We do not have time or patience to sit down and talk on the phone, and a lot of people like to have things “black on white” instead of just floating in the air (like with a phone).
This leads to overfull inboxes.
Once your inbox reaches a certain size you start getting anxiety over what actually hides in the pile of musts and to-dos. Did you forget something important? Was there an email from your boss? How about that project that seems to be stuck? Was there a mail from them?
As the anxiety grows your aversion grows with it, and in a worst case scenario, you stop using email altogether. I’ve seen it happen more than once!
I am going to show you a way to keep your inbox empty and at the same time keep track of what emails need attention in what project/from what customer. And all by a press of a button and a drag-and-drop of the email in question.
Well, all you need is an installation of the desktop version of Microsoft Outlook and some time to set it up.
