Control Your Day Microsoft Outlook Email Mastery System




Take back control of your Inbox Struggling with email management? Is your Inbox out of Control? Control Your Day(CYD) offers a new and better way to manage your email and tasks using Microsoft Outlook. The system incorporates productivity concepts made famous by David Allen in his book Getting Things Done (GTD). The CYD system is in use by thousands of people in countries all over the world. There is no special software required just a standard copy of Microsoft Outlook. With CYD you will stop using multiple folders, to-do lists and reminders to stay organized, instead you will manage everything from one view inside of Microsoft Outlook.  This course will introduce you to the concepts of CYD, provide you with some great email productivity tips and explain how to replace folders with categories, use rules to auto process email messages, create search folders to organize your mail based on due date instead of received/sent date and add next actions and contexts to your messages. Once you are comfortable with the concepts I walk you through how to use CYD to take back control of your day. If you have any questions, just send me a note through Udemy and I will respond as quickly as possible. Get started today!
