Tech Tip
: How to Reset a Recurring Task in Outlook 

Outlook treats recurring appointments and tasks differently.

Recurring appointments come in sets that begin with the first appointment and end with the last; each appointment is visible on your calendar. 

In contrast, only one recurring task is visible at any given time. Outlook displays the next recurring task after you mark the current one as complete. If you skip a recurring task, you can mark it as completed or skipped and continue to the next recurring task. However, that won’t always be the case.

This article by Susan Harkins of TechRepublic shows you how to avoid problems when you need to reset a recurring task.

 

 



Content Under Pressure: Keeping in Touch with Client Newsletters 
(Excerpts from an article by Susan Kostal)

Are you on content hamster wheel—trying to keep pace with bigger firms that seem to push out client alerts 24/7?

Don’t drive yourself crazy. Get off the wheel.

Regular client newsletters are a way to publish regularly, offer valuable content, and stay in meaningful touch with clients and contacts. Start publishing quarterly and move to short monthly newsletters.

Write about business issues all professionals face, regardless of your practice area or their industry. Offer practical advice, talk logistics and borrow liberally from current events. Don’t cram all this into one article or post. Pick just one topic. Offer one really helpful piece of advice with a clear takeaway. You can do this!
