There are two dashboards that can be useful in resource
During the Annual Resource Planning Process, look for the
Annual Resource Planning Process dashboard. This contains
historical information that can be helpful when developing
projections. This dashboard is not available outside the process

Filler words - Get rid of filler words like "I think"
and "just," because they don't serve a purpose other than softening
your written language. A helpful tip is to look for commas and
delete any qualifiers that come before them.
Paragraphs – There's a fine line between necessary
context and irrelevant detail. To make sure you're including only
the important facts, recommendation of checking your email to see
if you can replace one of your paragraphs with bullet points. The
formatting change will "force you to be far more concise and direct
with your writing."
Information that's available elsewhere - Argument that
the wordier your email is, the more likely it is that you've
included information that can be found elsewhere. Recommendation
that referencing outside sources, such as documents, presentations,
or websites, whenever possible
Pleasantries – People generally skim over polite
email openers anyway, so don't feel like excluding them will make
you look rude. Suggestion to excluding anything beyond a simple "I
hope you're doing well!"
