One of the first things the game teaches to the player is that diplomats should never be idle. If they've no urgent task to accomplish, they should be sent to improve relations with neighbours, allies, vassals, etc.
Needless to say, this means the player is soon busy with a lot of micro-management.

Then, how about a feature automatically sending diplomats to improve relations? The diplomatic UI should allow the player to choose how many envoys he wishes to allocate to "auto improve relations". Then the chosen diplomats are automatically sent to relevant countries to improve relations, stay there until they reach +100 relations, then they come back and are sent elsewhere.
The player should be able to call back those diplomats anytime, revoking the "auto improve relations".
The player should be able to set which countries are "relevant". One easy solution is to use the diplomatic feedback feature, auto sending diplomats in countries where the player has a friendly, ally or overlord relationship.

You may end up without diplomats due to long distant automatic relation bumps.
Just use the message setting to popup and stop when a diplomat arrives at home. This way you won't miss any day (unless speed 4+) to send them on a new mission.
Btw same could be done for merchants, missionaries, and colonists, too.

Yes, it's a downside that the player must be willing to accept. It's manageable if the player sets "relevant" countries close enough, but the diplomat auto improving relations is always busy, so he's never home ready if needed.
Just use the message setting to popup and stop when a diplomat arrives at home. This way you won't miss any day (unless speed 4+) to send them on a new mission.
That wouldn't decrease micro management at all, though.

It reduces micro by a little bit, doesn't it? You no longer have to keep your eye on the agent display, nor pause the game.
