How to use email history to calculate work done during this lock down

By: standss , May 7th, 2020

Are you working from home and finding it difficult to monitor your activities on customer emails during this quarantine?

At the end of the day, week or month you may have to send your time sheets to your office. These time sheets may be used to track the work you have done and possibly bill clients.

Working from home is not always easy and you may not always remember what you have worked on.

If you’re an information worker, a lot of the work for clients is probably done using emails. If you had a report showing you the emails you have worked on, it would be much easier to fill in your time-sheets.

QuickFile filing history feature can help you with this.

QuickFile filing history feature shows email details that you have filed during the day.  You can use this information to remember what you have worked on and to fill in your time sheets more quickly and correctly.

Before I show you how to use the filing history, and in case you’re new to QuickFile:
QuickFile for Outlook makes it easy to organize your sent and received emails into client/project/case/matter folders inside Outlook.

How to view your Filing History?

Click the History button on the QuickFile section of the Ribbon (it is on the Home tab). The Filing History screen will be displayed.

Filing History Screen

You can make the fields larger by dragging the columns.

Also you can see details of any individual item by clicking on it and then clicking the Show Details button.

You can even go directly to a filed item or to the folder it is filed in by right-clicking on the email (in the list) and then clicking Open Item or Goto Folder.

Finally (and maybe most useful), the screen also has a Search bar that you can use to quickly find any particular email.

Users are finding Filing History Screen very useful

Response from users has been very positive before the COVID-19 crisis. We believe that it is an even more important feature, now that so many people are working from home. We hope that you find it useful too.

If you haven’t tried QuickFile, download a fully functional trial using the link below and find out why it is the Number 1 email management tool for professionals (lawyers, engineers, architects, software developers etc).
