Inbox prioritization improves effectiveness in the workplace

Inbox prioritization improves effectiveness in the workplace

Imagine an inbox that lets you chose the type of prioritization and listing that is best for you, at any specific moment. Would such a view help you improve effectiveness, so you can focus on the right things first and avoid distractions? Would this in turn help reduce stress and improve results?

Email overload

Our inboxes are constantly being filled with new emails, sometimes arriving to hundreds of daily emails, cluttering our inbox and overloading our capabilities to attend. Email overload has become a problem in many organizations, as we are bombarded with constant messages and ongoing distractions which keep us from actually moving forward and attending our real tasks.
With over a third of our time spent on email alone, it is no wonder we end up feeling unproductive and always putting out fires, as we simply cannot get things done.

Prioritize to effectiveness

Knowmail is battling email overload with our AI solution that grants an intelligent view of your inbox, consisting of state of mind filters to automatically prioritize emails, along with an easy to use sorting system. With this direction, we grant a sorting mechanism to list your messages by importance, letting you focus appropriately, thus become much more effective.

Your time, your priority

Our regular inboxes list messages by most recent on top, so as we attend to them by their arrival, we are actually attending them based on someone else’s priority, not our own. With priority sorting, we are able to turn that around and approach each message per our importance, thus being able to complete our tasks, towards our own work objectives. In the end, our time will be utilized much better, as we can complete critical items quicker and reduce our stress per important items that we didn’t get to.

Sort by time

It is known that sometimes, time sorting is actually needed i.e when we are working with international markets. In such cases, there is an ongoing thread with teammates, as well as project status to be assessed. Knowmail understands this need and hasn’t taken that capability away, simply provided it as an option. So when importance is not the top factor, time sorting is available to view messages as they arrive.

The first pillar towards improved productivity is effectiveness, doing the right things. The priority sorting along with our state-of-mind filters grant the first steps to improve results and reduce your work stress.
