In my September editorial, I shared some tips from my coworkers on ways to improve the emails you send, such as:
Cindy, I completely agree on the "Thanks". I used to drive a few friends 'nuts' at AIChE by the number of times I just said "Thanks".....but I only said it if I meant it and it doesn't take a lot of kb. Good article in CEP.
I love when people write the purpose of the email in the subject line. It helps me filter emails and know what to expect when opening them.Examples:
INFORM: Project Update (this email is going to tell you what's happening)REQUEST: Project Update (This email wants you to reply with information)
