Rating Areas

Your email effectiveness score is made up of three components:

  • Response Time: This factor measures how promptly you are responding to emails. Getting back to emails that require responses within 24 hours will result in a good response time score.
  • Inbox Control: This factor measures how effectively you are processing the messages in your inbox. The more messages you have in your inbox and the longer it takes you to read, file, and/or delete messages, the lower your score will be.
  • Communication: This factor measures how well you are doing at sending out messages and processing messages that require response/action.
