Flexible Working

  • Introduction

    Is Your Company Ready for Flexible Working?

    The way we work has seen the most dramatic shift in decades, companies have had to implement different ways of working often with very little time to plan and execute, often leading to compromised ways of working that rather than empower the user and company, after all these changes were only meant to be temporary.

  • The benefits

    Is Flexible Working Going To Be The New Company Normal?

    The world changed, attitudes changed, companies discovered they could still be productive without staff all in the same building, and sometimes companies found that flexible working increased productivity as staff were no longer spending time commuting or visiting clients, it was all being done from home.

    Tech tip - Outlook - receive important notifications only

    If you would like Outlook to only alert you when important emails arrive, here is how to do it:

    This involves a custom alert rule being setup for specific people who you feel are important and want to be notified about, for example Customers, mangers or the big boss!

    To set up a custom alerting rule:

    • Open Outlook
    • Locate an email from the person you want an alert from
    • Right-click the email
    • Select Rules
      • Create Rule
      • Switch on the checkbox by the sender’s name
      • Choose “Display In The New Item Alert Window” and/or “Play A Selected Sound”
      • Choose the sound file to play for the alert
      • Click ‘OK’ to set the rule

    Repeat the process for the other contacts you would like to receive alerts for...

    To set up a custom rule for a whole domain:

    • Click the Home tab
    • click on Rules
    • Manage Rules & Alerts
    • Click “New Rule”
    • Select “Apply Rule On Messages I Receive” and click the “Next” button
    • Scroll down and select “With Specific Words In The Sender’s Address”
    • Click the underlined “Specific Words” (underlined)
    • Add the domain you need to receive alerts for (@domainname.co.uk) then OK

    • Click “Next”
    • Choose whether you require a sound played, an alert displayed, or both
    • Click “Finish”
