Sometimes I receive an email that requires some kind of action, but I don’t have time to do that action now. I want to schedule time to work on it when I’m not as busy as I am at the moment.
I track the email in Microsoft Dynamics CRM, then I drag the email from the Microsoft Outlook mail list to the calendar link. This will create a new appointment with the text and subject of the email. I can then schedule the appointment for a time that is free on my calendar. This has two benefits:
- It schedules time on my calendar to focus on the item (and reminds me)
- It makes that time show “busy” to my colleagues, so nobody bothers me while I’m working on it.
