Tips for Customizing Categories

  • Assess Your Email Flow: Begin by observing the types of emails you receive over a period to identify common themes or senders. This initial assessment will guide you in creating categories that genuinely reflect your incoming mail.
  • Define Broad Categories: Create categories broad enough to encompass several emails yet specific enough to separate distinct types of interactions. For example, instead of a category for each client, have one for 'Client Communications'. This approach reduces the complexity and number of categories, making your inbox easier to manage.
