- Students: Use your to-do list to create your schedule in Outlook for the Web. Watch this short YouTube video to get started.
If you want to organize your emails…
- Turn on conversation view, which groups received messages and replies together. No more searching through your sent items!
- Turn on Conversation View in Outlook for Windows
- Turn on Conversation View in Outlook for Mac
- Turn on Conversation View in Outlook for Web
- Create rules in Outlook to automatically take action on emails as they come in. Choose from a variety of options, such as forwarding, filtering, categorizing, and flagging. With rules, the important stuff gets your attention, and the less-important stuff gets organized.

If you want to customize notifications to increase focus…
- Customize your Canvas notifications by going to your account and selecting Notifications. From here, you can create your own preferences to make sure you’re receiving messages in a way that best supports your learning or teaching style.
If you want to try a new way to get ideas on paper…
- Practice dictating your thoughts into a Microsoft Word document. Brainstorming or writing this way might feel more natural depending on how you think best, and it’s a great technique to use to avoid blue light and eye strain if you’ve been looking at your screen for a while.
