>A few of us have started Twitter chats on Business Productivity every Thursday. The first chat was yesterday, the topic was Email Overload. Lot of people shared their tips, tricks on how they manage their emails. It was pretty good! I got to learn quite a bit of stuff!



sahilparikh:

I normally check my mail only a few times in the day. Reply to the most important first. Don’t treat emails as your tasklist #simpli5


guglanisam:

Whenever I find my self sending same reply to many mails I create “canned response” (gmail feature). It works like magic #simpli5
