Organising Your Email
At Bauhinia Solutions, we love everything that has to do with organisation – and that includes email inboxes.
In fact, organising your inbox is often overlooked, but it is such a critical part of managing your daily workload. A cluttered inbox is not just overwhelming. It can really create problems because important, time-sensitive messages can get lost in the noise. This can lead to missed deadlines, forgotten tasks and potentially, very disgruntled customers.
By organising your inbox, you are able to quickly prioritise, respond to, and find information. This makes it much easier for you to stay on top of important tasks.
How Do We Organise An Inbox?
Sorting emails into folders is one of our favourite things to do. It can help you keep track of necessary documents and conversations, saving you time in the future when it comes to referencing information. Taking the time to create a simple system for keeping your emails organised will make managing your workload much easier. If you dont know how to create rules/filters in your inbox, you can read this blog, where we take you through the process, step by step.
Labels are also a great way to help you prioritise your emails. They work by assigning emails with different levels of importance. For example, if you want to focus on a certain project, you can create a label for it and assign all related emails to that category so they are easy to locate when needed. You could even colour-code labels so you’re immediately able to identify which messages are more important than others at a glance.
Similarly, creating labels for specific contacts or topics within your inbox will make it easier for you to find the exact information you need quickly and easily. Organising your emails with labels not only makes them easier to read through but also helps keep track of tasks that need completing. By assigning deadlines or reminders and attaching them to certain emails, you can make sure that tasks are being tackled in a timely manner and nothing is slipping through the cracks.
You can also use labels to monitor group projects or collaborations with other team members, making it easier to manage multiple conversations at once. Using labels is a great way for busy professionals to stay organised and maintain efficient email management habits.
By creating categories for different emails, you’ll be able to find emails more quickly and spend less time sorting through your inbox. If you are not sure how to create labels, you can refer to this blog, where we explain the whole process in more detail.
