September 15, 2015

Tips for Organizing your Inbox, Your Savvy PA, SeattleHaving trouble finding the emails you need and finding yourself constantly using Search to find them?

Having a hard time tracking your projects, clients and what is done/not done in your email?

Are you overwhelmed at the sheer sight of your ginormous email inbox?

Here are a few tips to get you on your way to Inbox Control!

  1. Categorize: Create category folders for topics such as Clients: Current, Completed; Projects: Current, Completed; Tasks: Current, Completed and categories like Home, Travel, Kids, etc.
  2. Create Filters:  Filters automatically label your emails as they enter your inbox.  –> If you wish your emails to skip your inbox and go directly to the category file folder, indicate “Skip Inbox” when you create the filter.
  3. Complete:  When you are done with a task in an email, assign the label “Completed” and move it out of your inbox to the respective category folder.
  4. Unsubscribe and Roll Up:  Check out this savvy subscription wrangling tool, UnRoll Me.  It searches your inbox for subscriptions, piles them all into one location and gives you the option to roll each into a “Daily Rollup,” unsubscribe or keep it in your inbox.  Superb!
