When asked to share their biggest productivity challenges, people often include email management at the top of the list. Email has the potential to be a convenient and productive communication medium, but more often becomes a source of stress that leads to wasted hours.

In this session, we’ll look at some practical workflows to help you tame your email that make use of OmniFocus and complementary third-party apps and services. We’ll also look at instances where email isn’t the most effective communication tool and will offer suggestions for ways to limit the amount of email that arrives in your inbox.
