Hi There. My name is Erez Morabia and I have created this blog for people who work in Outlook environment with high email traffic, and looking for practical tricks & tips that will enhance their Outlook work while gaining more control over their time.
I am working in the computer software industry for many years now, and one thing I have realized is that once we enter into a leader position (task leader, team leader, group manager, project manager, etc), our email volume increases dramatically. The worst part is that most of our to-do lists and follow-up items are hidden in those emails and no one really trains us how to handle it (or is it only me?…).
Since 2006 I have been investing a lot of energy into reading books, watching lectures and practicing endless methods – trying to find new ways to improve my Outlook work environment in a simple way. I have taken that knowledge and managed to come up with a short list of specific items that are practical and really make the difference in my daily work.
Apparently, those items make the difference for other people as well. I have realized that while mentoring friends and colleagues. Once more people in my social networks heard about it, I got many requests and questions about time management and practical usage in an Outlook environment. I thought it would be a great idea to gather all this knowledge into a single site and share it with you, so I would be able to reach more people and help where I can.
This site holds 2 main sections – Blog and Quick-Reference. In the Blog section I would issue Posts. I would integrate a short-story version of the Posts into the Quick-Reference section, including links to the original posts. This should help a new comer to get aligned quickly on the items that were already posted.
Please note that I would give my screenshot and step-by-step examples for Outlook 2010, although most of the items already exist in previous versions (I used 2003 and 2007 versions for a few years). I still did not move to the latest Outlook version.
