To Organize, Or Not To Organize?


A study conducted by IBM Research has found that people who organize their emails into folders have a more difficult time finding what they are looking for than those who do no organization at all.

Users who did no filing were able to find what they were looking for faster by using search tools. Not only did the non-organizers save time when searching, they also eliminate the time spent on organizing.

The study suggests keeping conversations in existing threads instead of beginning new ones to keep your inbox neat.

The formula for success is simple: remain unorganized! Don’t make folders and keep conversations in the same thread.
