Copy and pasting emails, sending them out to people, one by one, over and over again.
Emails back-and-forth, playing phone tag, trying to find the perfect time to meet.
Asking people to fill out forms, tracking down scanned documents you've received.
Updating unweidy spreadsheets, merging in data from others, just to keep track of things.
Manually harassing people to get things to you, somebody always falls through the cracks.
Trying to keep track of who's waiting to hear back, what they need and when it needs sent.
