Int'l Clean Your Inbox Day
Plan to Empty Your Inbox – The Int’l Clean Out Your Inbox Week is in the end of January!
Streamlining your inbox has never been this easy
Unroll.Me scans your inbox to find how many subscriptions you have, then gives the option to either unsubscribe or consolidate them into a daily digest called a “Rollup” - in one swipe.
- Unsubscribe: Unsubscribe from the subscriptions you don’t want
- Rollup: Roll up the subscriptions you want into a daily digest
- Keep: Keep the rest in your inbox
Readers, what about you -- do you keep a clean inbox? What tips do you have for avoiding inbox clutter? Please share your tips with the rest of us.
Here is more advice from Carol Pierce . .
I create rules to filter e-mail to their respective folders, reducing time spent sorting through and I have 2 rules for email communication:
- If I’m required to respond, send “To” me;
- If it’s information only, then “Copy” to me.
I use categories too so I know where I’m up to with messages and who else is involved.
I tried #Tabless Thursday
I was successful for about 8 minutes until instant messenger went crazy with questions and I had to open tabs to find answers! But I like the idea of single tasking and doing one thing well, being in the present. The video offers some great ideas; it's difficult to stop multitasking.
Imagine how difficult this is for our students/digital natives.
#Tabless Thursday might help?
