I have to admit that I am excited for fall when everyone will be using Outlook at INTO OSU. This will make things so much easier; right now it can be frustrating and time-consuming to schedule a meeting. I’ll never have to read or write a string of emails like this again:
Me: “John, Joe, and Jim, When do you have time to meet?”
John: “2-3pm works for me?”
Joe: “Sorry that won’t work. I’m in class. What about 3-4?”
Jim: “That doesn’t work for me. Ugh. 4-5?”
And it continues until finally, years later, a meeting is scheduled.
With Outlook, instructors enter reoccurring appointments for their classes. Then, when someone goes to schedule a meetings, they can see when people are available. Say good-bye to those annoying strings of emails.The links in the sentences above will walk you through the step-by-step process of using outlook for meetings and appointments. Here is a 50 minute webinar recording from CN. Also, this Wednesday at 3-3:45pm in room 243 and this Thursday from 1:30-2:15 in 255, I will be answering Outlook questions.
