Meetings: Every minute counts, and snooze to 1 minute before meeting starts

As a consultant I’m used to having a lot of “back-to-back” meetings, and when the next meeting is near, I typically get an outlook reminder 15 minutes prior to the meeting.

Then using the “Snooze” button is good. If I snooze until 5 minutes before I am too early. 0 minutes before and I am too late. You know that in the drop-down, the minimum selection is 5 minutes? That is too much for me. I would like to have a new reminder when it is 1 minute before the meeting start. But did you also know that you can type into the field? You can actually write “1 minute”, and this will then remind you when it is 1 minute to the meeting start.

A smaller more advanced way is to set the default reminder to 16 minutes, prior to the meeting

And then when the reminder “pop’s” up, to can select to “Snooze” and select to be reminded in 15 minutes. That is exactly 1 minute before the meeting starts.

Now I have just “earned” 4 more minutes where I can create D365 customer value before the meetings starts

I appreciate that I can be a part of this worldwide blog community—as a consultant working from Norway, the blog lets me share more than 20 years of experience with Microsoft Dynamics 365. Along the way, I participated in developing retail, PDA/RF, barcoding, master data, kitting and WMS-solutions for Dynamics. My blog focuses on my deepest interests and expertise: along with a 360 degree view of digital transformation topics, I welcome opportunities to dive into retail and intercompany supply chain automation, logistics, and production—everything that is moving around in a truly connected enterprise. As Enterprise Architect on Dynamics 365, I specialize in strategic development and planning for corporate vertical solutions and works to build international networks that increase knowledge and understanding for Dynamics 365. As an advocate for both providers and customers, I'm committed to ensure that customers constantly changing needs are meet, and I see community as key for increasing expertise. I welcome you to connect with me.
