Using software to maintain your schedule can be extremely effective, but if you're not careful, it can turn into a real waste of time for both you and everyone else involved. Try to keep the following factors in mind when scheduling your day in Outlook, Lotus Notes, or GroupWise (demonstrated in Outlook).
  • Using third-party software to find convenient day/time of meeting for people not at your company.
  • Converting emails automatically into appointments (no copy/paste).
  • Automatically find open meeting times without comparing calendars.
  • Track meetings by projects, team, or committee.
