Let's suppose my manager asks (via email) me to talk to our vendor representative and sort out some issues:
- Please, contact him and try to sort the issues out.
After scheduling a meeting with the vendor representative (the meeting will be on Monday), I want to make my manager informed about this (via email):
- OK, I scheduled a meeting with him for Monday.
- OK, I have scheduled a meeting with him for Monday.
I know that the present perfect should be used, not the simple past (See my previous question). But I'd like to know what is the difference?
As a native American English or a native British English speaker, can you explain the difference?
