eProductivity Topics

"I'm being totally honest when I say that eProductivity is the most effective organizational tool I have ever used. I'm able to keep track of all the small tasks that come my way . . . and seeing them all in one place allows me to effectively manage my time."

—Ahmed Gahelrasoul, Technology Integration Specialist, MAPMG

eProductivity Quickstart: The top 5 features
This will cover five key features of eProductivity: for those who have eProductivity and want quick wins, or those who want a refresher.


Introduction to eProductivity
Audience: People new to eProductivity who do not have it installed.
This session is for those who are not yet using eProductivity but would like to see how it can benefit them. We will cover:

  • The basics of getting more done with less stress
  • Quickly dealing with email
  • How to get things off your mind and into your system
  • Managing projects and actions so nothing slips through the cracks

You'll see how eProductivity would help you do all of these things with less time, stress, and energy than with Lotus Notes alone.


Getting things done with eProductivity: Sharpen your accomplishment ability.
Audience: People who have eProductivity and want to learn more.
Whether you've been using it for 10 minutes and 10 months, this workshop will provide you with a deeper understanding of eProductivity and the principles behind it. You'll learn how to start working with Lotus Notes instead of around it.

Topics will include:

  • Your tools for dealing with email
  • Creating projects and actions, including Waiting For and Agendas
  • How to organize information in Lotus Notes and eProductivity
  • How to find what you've organized
  • And more...

eProductivity Reference: Find what you need, when you need it.
What do you do with all the information you store? Hopefully, the answer isn't "Save it in a document and hope I can find it later."

This workshop will show you how to use the eProductivity Reference Database to make sure you can find the right info at the right time.

Whether or not you use eProductivity, this session will teach you how to do a Weekly Review to get a clear view of your system and make sure nothing falls through the cracks.


Working with Archives and eProductivity: Find your email when you need it
You'll learn to understand Notes archiving, how it works, and how eProductivity makes it easier. Your archive is a powerful tool for keeping your Mail file lean and fast, and you'll learn how to use it that way.
