I returned from a two-week vacation today and faced the dreaded task of triaging hundreds of emails I had ignored while away. I've done this many times over the years, but today was the first time since I switched to using Verse exclusively about six weeks ago. Like the other times, I budgeted two hours just to wade through the mess. To my pleasant surprise, I was done in half the usual time. How was I able to reduce the triage time in half?
To understand the answer to that question, let me first explain how I look at every email during the triaging process:
Verse shines in handling these use cases. My Case 2 scenario is rare, so for about 98 percent of emails I am either deleting or stashing away for a second pass. Verse groups the Move to Trash, Remove from Inbox, and Mark as Needs Action buttons together and inline with the message in the Inbox. When I detect a message that is my Case 3 scenario, I just mark it as Needs Action (Today) and remove it from the inbox.
Using these techniques, I can handle the 98 percent in a series of rapid-fire mouse gestures that help me burn through my Inbox in a way I just can't with Notes and other email systems I've used. When scaled out to the hundreds of messages I had waiting for me, I reduced the time needed to process those messages by 50 percent, which was a huge win for my first Monday morning back in the office.
