Topic #90: Pick something that annoys you and redesign how it works.
If could redesign something that annoys me, I would redesign Outlook so that there was a way that you could automatically add a contact to your Address Book, along with its category and add it straight to a distribution list.
I spent ages yesterday going back through all the old contacts and customer for Holidays From Home and adding their email addresses, from their emails to my address book and then to a separate list of Holidays from Home contacts. It was a long, slow process and was really frustrating. My aim is to stay on top of things and do it each time I get a new contact (unlikely I know; but I can hope). I did do a google search in case there was some clever trick; but couldn’t find anything. So this is what I’d redesign.
Please don’t tell me that there is an easy way to do this otherwise I might cry. Ok do tell me if there is, to save me wasting time again!
