Outlook is a key communication tool in most companies yet is commonly underutilized and a time hog with too much time spent just responding to email. Learn powerful organizational strategies that can change the way you work and save you hours of time every week. Learn to navigate quickly, and far less, through Outlook and how to create a powerful single page dashboard that will let you strategically manage all your appointments, tasks, email and follow-up calls on a single page. This course maps to the Microsoft MOS Exam. After reviewing all topics in the manual participants will be prepared to successfully write the Microsoft Office Specialist Outlook Exam.
