E-mails are a vital part of (business) communication, but that doesn’t mean this means of communication is always the most efficient. Sometimes, you can keep mailing back and forth forever about a certain topic, while a short meeting would clear things up immediately. In this blog post, I’ll show you how to turn an e-mail into a meeting request in just one click.
Here’s how to proceed:
- Go to your inbox and click the e-mail you want to reply to.
- Go to the HOME tab.
- Click the meeting icon in the Respond group (see image below).
That’s it! You’ve just created a meeting request. Recipients in the TO line of the original message will be invited as Required Attendees, those in the CC line will be invited as Optional Attendees. Of course, you can also add or remove attendees, use the Scheduling Assistant, etc. Just click Send and you’re done.
