I put appointments in my work calendar of what I need to be working on. It makes it very full, but people realize which project I am (or that I’m doing something they want) and leave me alone – but I can ‘bounce’ around projects much easier than others. One of my coworkers has ‘days’ for 3 projects. Project A is M/W and Project B is Tu/Thu and anything else he does on Friday and e.g. on M he will only do Project A and not look at project B emails.

Also, maybe it is something to check with a manager. Could you setup a meeting at say 3pm for them to come to you with everything (rather than getting short questions throughout the day)?
