Tired of living in your Inbox? Maybe you shouldn’t be there. Learn how to create a powerful time management dashboard in Outlook that will show you what you need to do on one screen and allow you to manage your priorities and schedule. Learn key setting changes in Outlook and a handful of keyboard shortcuts that can eliminate 100’s of mouse clicks per day and keep you more focused on what is most important in your day and better manage and delegate work.

You’ll also learn how to use Microsoft OneNote to organize, locate, and share information. You will learn how to collect and organize notes, insert files, capture screens, and enhance your notes for all types of projects. You will learn how this tool automatically integrates with Outlook and can dramatically improve your ability to manage projects and collaborate with others.
