Tips and Tricks

Research strongly suggests that we are much more productive in the workplace when we take regular breaks. In a climate where back-to-back meetings and appointments have become commonplace, Microsoft Outlook includes settings that help you create space in between to turn around and take a break!

The default duration for Outlook appointments and meetings is 30 minutes. This additional setting, Shorten appointments and meetings lets you cut down the default duration by taking minutes off the start or end times.  You can adjust default settings to apply to shorter and longer meetings and appointments.  A simple, yet effective tip for improved time management and wellbeing!
