Sustainability and Sharing Email Folders


Be Boundless: Go Digital To Support Sustainability

Go Paperless for Earth Day & Every Day

UW Earth Days 50 years logoFor this Earth Day, join us in making a commitment to reduce personal consumption and incorporate sustainability in our daily lives, in office and working remotely, by reducing the use and need for paper files.

  1. Gauge how sustainably you are currently operating-- are you printing electronic records?  Is it really necessary? What is the added value?
  2. Identify specific ways you can operate more sustainably--less printing, adopting UW-approved digital signatures, and moving to fully-electronic workflows.
  3. Gain recognition for the good work you’re already doing--share your ideas and initiatives for a paperless office with Records Management and we'll share with the rest of University so they can follow your lead.

Empower Projects By Sharing Email Folders

Boost Productivity on Collaborative Projects

Purple email logoMany of us are working remotely right now, and that has meant shifting projects and pace as we re-balance our daily work. Shared access to specific email folders on a given project or topic can boost productivity by cutting down on forwarding, duplication, and frustration. When you can’t ask a colleague to walk over to look at your screen, RMS’s detailed, step-by-step tutorial guides you through sharing email folders in Outlook.  The tutorial teaches you how to limit access to specific folders so you can maintain privacy for other parts of your email account while boosting your productivity on a given project or topic.
