I know that some of you can receive hundreds of e-mails on a daily basis regarding appointments, meetings, etc. It is not at all unusual for me!
If you are not organized, it can become overwhelming trying to keep track of all you have going on! This is where Outlook steps in and keeps you right on track, organized and more efficient.
There is a really nice feature that will allow you to drag your e-mails to your Calendar and create an appointment or reminder. If your e-mail contains details about a particular event, you will want to add that to your calendar as well. Now, instead of opening your Calendar and keying all those details, you can simply drag that e-mail into your Calendar. Actually, you will drag the e-mail to your Calendar icon. It’s that simple
You know me, I am always looking for ways to save time and keystrokes and so I do this by right-clicking my message and selecting Move | Calendar.
Then you can add any reminders or other options you like. Now, when you open your calendar, you will see you new item listed.
Keep in mind that regardless of which desktop e-mail client or operating system you may be using, remember this quick trick. Your e-mail will be more organized and you will have more time to spend preparing for your meetings/appointments!
