The lesson this week was how to make and use Email effectively for your website and business. One of the tasks of the module was to make a filer for in our email. There are step by step instructions on how to set filters on Gmail in this link. (https://support.google.com/mail/answer/6579?hl=en) It was pretty easy, click on the arrow on the search bar on the top of your email. Then put the criteria you want for your filter. For my case I made a filter for my Web Design class. In the “From” section, I put my instructors email and for the “Has the words” section I put in CA260. Once you filled all the of your criteria you click on “Create filter with this search”. Now any email I get form my instructor, it will be filtered in the a separate folder. This is not just useful for classes. If I had a business partner, I could create a filter for my partner so I don’t loss track of any important emails. The lesson also required for us to come up with a example of writing email to our teacher if we could not come to class. I had turned to this link for help.(https://business.tutsplus.com/articles/how-to-write-clear-and-professional-emails–cms-20939) This is how I word my email.
Hello, this is Andrew. I just wanted to let you I will have to leave class 30 minutes early. I have a doctors appointment I have to go that day and I could not reschedule. Please let me know if you need me to work on anything early before class.
Many thanks, Andrew Presley.
