Whats Involved

Microsoft Outlook is a personal information manager which includes email, calendar, contacts and tasks. Managing your time can be made easier by making the most of these Outlook features.

    Participants will learn how to prioritise and manage their workload by utilising Outlook’s features effectively, plan ahead of time and control interruptions and emails.

    Using rules and folders will help them organise messages that don’t need to be read right away and file them for follow-up. Categories help to group similar tasks together and organising the to-do list will help manage urgent tasks more effectively.

    The first step in becoming more productive in the use of Outlook is to customise its many views and options to suit working habits. Outlook contains a multitude of actions and functions to help sort, file and respond to messages efficiently.
