We all have a love/hate relationship with email. It’s been around for more than 30 years now and many of us have both work and personal email accounts. With email apps on our phone, we can check it anywhere and anytime. It’s our comfort food. But it is not always the most efficient way to share information. Sending a file attachment to multiple people means multiple copies. Making changes and tracking versions requires extra work. In addition, with the deluge of emails we receive, it is easy for information to be buried and forgotten.

In recent years, new methods of communication are available. Office 365 and apps such as Teams provide more efficient ways to organize and share information. New artificial intelligence features in the software assist you in your work. Still, after clinging to email for so long, it is difficult for us to move to new ways. Office 365 can be a bit overwhelming since there are so many apps and it is not clear how they all tie together. Further complicating the issue is that some apps are only accessed through a browser while other apps have both a browser version and a desktop app. It takes a while to develop a sense of how it all works together.

However, if you take the time to learn new approaches, you will find that there are some significant benefits to using other apps besides email. It will be easier to share information, you can easily add other people to the team so they can share information. You won’t have to track document versions, you can all work on the same documents at the same time. And your information is in the cloud, so you can access it anytime and anywhere.
