Unlocking the Power of Outlook Seminar







Improve Efficiency, Productivity, and Manage your Time by "Unlocking the Power of Outlook®" Public Seminar

COURSE OVERVIEW:

This course was designed to provide the skills needed to begin utilizing Outlook as a time and information management system. We target four key areas – calendar, tasks, utilizing Outlook when away from the computer, and managing email overload. This powerful two hour seminar will improve efficiency and productivity.

Instead of jumping in to the" inbox river" first thing in the morning, start the day with a "big picture" view of calendar, tasks, and emails. Review appointment features and add appointments from emails. Learn how to create a "Walking Desk" to carry business critical information when attending meetings. Understand how to use the task list to manage action items for you and your team. Create a

" I can't stop raving about the class! I haven't cleaned out my WIP files yet, but I've also realized I don't need to right away. Quite liberating! It also makes a real difference starting my day opening Outlook Today first.

So far, two of my friends here are looking for when the class will be offered again, and one is planning on taking it again now that you are covering 2007. "
