I want to know. Do you love or hate conversation view (threaded email) in Outlook and other email clients? I believe it saves you a lot of time trying to find related emails and make it less likely to respond email that is not the latest. There are a few tricks that you should use to make conversations even better. Let me know in the comments if you love or hate conversation view?
As always, reach out if you have any questions.
Every day we are bombarded by a constant flow of emails in our Outlook inbox. How often do we get notified of an incoming e-mail, or a barrage of messages, only to find out it is an auto-reply or other non-essential email? What about taking a couple days off and coming back to 100+ new messages? We lose a lot of time sifting through the non-essential in search of the messages of value.
Microsoft has a "new" solution to help in this struggle called Focused Inbox for Outlook. I place the new in quotes because this feature has been available in the Outlook mobile app for a while. As someone who uses my outlook app often, this feature has greatly helped me sift through my emails. Hopefully, it will help you too. Like this message if you are already using Focused Inbox.
As always reach out to if you have any questions. I am always looking for great tech tips, so if you have one or have a question you would like me the answer send me a message.
Have you ever typed something and then realized you wanted it in in all caps? ARCHITECTS AND ENGINEERS SEEM TO LOVE OVER CAPITALIZING EVERYTHING. Or typed something and didn’t realize your "Caps Lock" was on? Thought you had to retype the whole thing? WRONG. You can use Shift+F3 in Word or Outlook to change the capitalization of a word, sentence, paragraph, etc.
If you like me, you sometimes use the evening (while watching Thursday Night Football) to catch up on a few emails that you did not get to during the day. However, I feel a little guilty sending yet another notification late at night. So I schedule my late night emails for first thing in morning using Outlook's delay delivery option. My thought is, we get enough notifications on our phones, why send another when I am don't need a response until tomorrow. In general, when we send emails, we should not anticipated an instant response. Skype, texting, and the phone are great for messages that need a more immediate response. See below for details on how to delay your next late night email.
