Hi Lady bosses,
I am a social media manager for a Fortune 50 company. I manage all our enterprise social channels and work with a small, but mighty team. I would say I get about 100-200 emails daily and I am kinda drowning in email hell.
I am expected to keep up with my email throughout the day, so simply closing it and ignoring it and then tackling it later in the day is not an option.
I generally respond to the emails that are urgent throughout the day and then respond to the non-urgent ones around 4 when all of my meetings are done. I also get a LOT of copied emails for awareness that I usually need to refer to later.
I file away emails when I can, but I have a tendency to keep a lot of emails as a CYA tactic in case I need them later.
My questions for you all:
* Does anyone have a tried and true email filing system?
* If you get a lot of emails, how do you manage them and your time?
* Do you have any tips on how NOT to miss an email? (That's one of my issues, I feel like I'm missing things, especially when the day gets crazy).
I would really like any email organization tips you have... and P.S. My company uses Outlook.
Thanks in advance!
