Preventive Medicine’s Third Thursday Seminar


We all need to administer our workdays and stay on top of assignments and duties, but how much time did you spent last week on “just hanging on”? We talk about aspects in collaborations that suck away time and divert attention and will address some of these by looking into:
– The To-Do-List integration into MS Outlook incl. a life demonstration (action item from the Faculty Retreat).
– Using email Scheduling Polls to efficiently find meeting times (with demonstration).
– Reemphasize good email habits, especially the increasing importance of the Subject Header because this part is used for indexing services etc. that allow us to identify emails in our “system”.
– Sharing files for different purposes: experiences what works and how to trouble shoot problems.

If you want to participate in the life demonstrations, please bring your laptop with the required software already installed and functional, incl. Outlook and Microsoft to Do (available as Outlook integration and also apps for mobile devices). Find out more here:

PLEASE TURN TO OUR IT SUPPORT in case you need assistance in installing the software. (You do not need to install it before the seminar, only if you want to use it during the seminar – we will not have time during the seminar to install or trouble shoot basic installation tasks.)

This Third Thursday Seminar is in person only and will not be recorded as we share on screen live email accounts, calendars etc. when demonstrating software functionality.
