Lync Tip 366 | Remind yourself to get back to that person

You know, the person who you should have responded to a while ago.  

The person who when you get to the end of the day you remember that you were going to call them or respond to their email. 

Prompt yourself to get back to this person with a gentle but persistent reminder. Even better than a nagging task alert or calendar reminder in Outlook. When this reminder appears, you know you’ll they are available to respond to.  

Have you guessed it yet?

Every time that person is available, Lync will tell you. What’s more, when their face pops up in the bottom right-hand corner of your desktop, it’s a motivator. They are only a click away.   

At this point, you have no excuse… send them a short IM. “Have you got a minute?”
