How does everyone manage emails that arrive in your inbox that require more than 2 minutes to action?
At the moment when I get an email that is going to take me longer than 2 minutes to action I move it from my inbox to a seperate folder within my Outlook. The email folder is labelled as the project name that it applies to under a section called 'current projects'. I can save all the emails that I receive which apply to that particular project within the same folder. Sounds ok so far?
However once I've moved the email into its folder I'm worried that I will forget to take any action with it as it's now off my radar! My inbox may be at zero and my emails all saved in folders but how do I remember to go back to each folder at a later time, find the email and then take any appropriate action?
How does everyone manage this scenario? Should I use 'Tasks' to help me with this process - how? I'm trying to limit the amount of times that I check my email to about 2 to 3 times a day.
What works for everyone out there?
Please send me step-by-step instructions as to the most effective way to manage this..... tks A
