Any good suggestions for tracking “tricky” mileage usage in Outlook? — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
Question: I need tips for keeping up with my boss’s mileage using Outlook.
What’s recorded in Outlook is then used to complete a mileage form. I
usually record meetings requiring travel in purple. But there are times
when meetings are on the boss’s calendar in purple that she does not
attend; she just wants to know the meeting is taking place. By the end
of the month, it’s hard to remember if she did or did not attend those
meetings. Also, she wants me to accept meetings tentatively that she
may or may not attend. This shows meetings taking place at the same
time or around the same time. I need to keep track in a better way.
Should I print her calendar and highlight the meeting she actually
attends? — Anonymous
