Use alerts and reminders to stay on top of important tasks

Successful sales reps know that sales wins come from building a relationship with customers, not spending time buried in email and to-do lists. You can reduce the time you spend on email and tasks by setting flags and reminders in Outlook. With Outlook, you can flag important emails to add them to your daily tasks, set an alert to be notified when an important customer contacts you, set reminders to stay on top of important meetings, set rules to automatically route low-priority requests to a separate folder for later follow-up, and much more.
