One Sentence Email Tips

quote [ 1. The simplest way to get fewer emails is to send fewer emails. ]

They say that to make somebody like you, get them to do you a favor.

But I work in IT support. People want me to do things for them all day, and I hate them all.

I am fine with the favours. The nine email long conversation, complete with borked footers and chitchat, where I am supposed to extract what kind of problem they are having.

I am very close just to respond : "I've read emails as requested. Closing ticket. Have a good day."

Sometimes, just figuring out what someone wants is the hard part. Sometimes, even they don't know.

It would help if everybody involved would treat this as what it is: care and communication instead of a virtual conveyor belt.
