Enhance Your Productivity with Email Templates

If you’re anything like us, you’re likely using the same wording over and over again when it comes to requesting, accepting, and declining meetings for your exec via email. If you’re incessantly typing out the same messages, it may be beneficial to have some pre-made templates ready to grab from to cut back on the amount of work you have to exert. 

We’ve created a few examples of scheduling emails that can be used to improve day-to-day time management for executive assistants:

  • Requesting a meeting
  • Final scheduling response
  • Response to scheduling request
  • Declining proposed meeting options
  • Declining a meeting

Download them for free and leverage them to help save you time with meeting responses and impress your exec. You can also copy and paste the messages into your canned responses, text expander, or into an easy-to-access document, so you don’t have to retype them each time!
