Sometimes you need a quick reply in order to schedule an appointment, book a conference room or simply to proceed with your current project. But our mailboxes are getting over-filled and people often lose track of your message. How to avoid embarrassing reminders via email and begging for attention?
Microsoft Outlook offers a specific feature for this purpose – a set of reminders that will remind the recipient (or even yourself) in a specified time and make sure that nobody forgets again.
- In your new message window, click on the red flag icon labeled as Follow Up.
- Select Add Reminder in the drop down menu…
- Custom screen allows you to choose if you want to set a reminder for yourself or for the recipient. Simply pick Flag for Me and/or Flag for Recipients and set up a reminder bellow..
This creates a new item in everyone’s Tasks List, with a reminder popping up at appropriate time. Done! It will be easier for you to remember the deadline and Outlook will remind others to respond.
On top of that, eWay-CRM offers even more sophisticated tools for Outlook such as managing tasks of your employees and reporting all their current activities.
