For work I create a lot of notes about projects, knowledge and things happening to stay organized and be able to report status. We are having a lot of mail traffic, which I have been trying to efficiently store inside the notes or reference somehow.
Some nights ago an idea came to my mind, which I’m currently trying to establish and try out.
In every relevant mail I sent or reply to, I add a small unique ID in the subject, which I than mention in my notes. With that ID I can quickly find mail threads and also the other way, find my notes which mention the ID.
E.g. subject: “an example subject - df29b160”.
What do you think? Are there any better options, besides copying mail content into notes?
Have a nice weekend, Stefan
