Get Shift Done: Tips and Tricks
One way to tame your inbox is to get emails you’re storing for reference purposes out of your inbox. This leaves you with a clutter-free inbox containing just emails you need to process.
Evernote for Outlook makes extracting the important information from your inbox a breeze. The Evernote add-in means you can ‘clip’ email messages, as well as attachments, directly from Outlook to Evernote.
Here’s how to get started:
Step 1: Install the free Evernote for Outlook add-in from the Microsoft Office Store
Step 2: Open an email and click on the elephant head icon to activate the Evernote add-in. Choose a notebook to clip to, as well as any tags and comments.
Step 3: Head to Evernote and check out the new note, along with tags and comments in the project notebook you selected!
Once you’ve got the hang of it, using Evernote as your ‘outboard brain’ helps you get out of your email inbox and start organizing your information like a boss. Inbox zero won’t be an dream, it’ll be an everyday reality.
