Email is a workplace standard, with many of us devoting significant time tending to the messages in our inboxes. It seems that we receive more emails every day, which opens theVarious Email Folders
possibility of missing critical messages. As a COMMBUYS user, buyer or vendor, it’s possible that you receive various system notifications – some requiring your immediate review along with some that do not.

There is a way to strategically manage your inbound messages. Many email providers offer subscribers the ability to set up rules that draw attention to emails requiring immediate review or move less urgent messages to folders for later inspection.

Here are a few examples of how COMMBUYS emails (notifications@commbuys.com) might be managed through the use of rules:

  • Move messages with specific words in the subject line (e.g. Open Market Requisition AND Canceled) to a preset folder for later review;
  • Send an alert to your mobile device based on subject line parameters (e.g. Bid Notification AND Bid Short Description);
  • Color-code messages (e.g. Release Requisition AND Approval Requested) for easy identification;
  • Forward emails received (e.g. Bid Awarded AND Bid Short Description) over a specific date range to a specified individual or group.

Each individual and organization knows best how to manage their inbound emails. Explore the possibilities with your email provider.
