5 Outlook Hacks to Make Life Easier on You and Your Customers
Schedule Meetings More Efficiently
Does this scenario sound familiar?
All great points. Let’s get a call on the books to chat about it.
Great! What time are you available?
What about Thursday at 10 a.m.?

I’m out Friday afternoon. What do you have Monday morning?
How much time do we waste just trying to schedule meetings? It’s infuriating — and extremely inefficient. Instead, just reply to the initial email with a meeting request. If the time doesn’t work and it’s an internal meeting, it’s easy enough to see when schedules align.
