Earlier we looked at flagging messages when we were reading them, so we could follow up ourselves. When you're writing a message, you might want to do that too. So, you can flag a message for Follow Up, and this is for you to follow up. Today, tomorrow, this week? Let's say This Week. And a flag will be set when you send this message out. In addition to flagging it for your own follow up, you can also Add a Reminder, so you can set a Reminder on that if you choose. So at 8 a.m. on Thursday morning, I'm going to get a reminder on this now.
And on top of that, if we hit this done arrow here, we can also Flag it for Recipients. So if we're sending this to somebody else, we can flag it for them, to give them a Task to follow up. So I'm also going to flag it for them to follow-up, and I want them to follow up on Thursday as well. By 4 p.m. That's going to give them a Task to follow up. Use this carefully because others may not use flags or use their Tasks the same way. But it's a great way as a manager for example, to flag something for follow up by those that report to you so that you can make sure they have an easy Task reminder so they can see it in there To-Do Bar also.
I'm to send this message, and it'll be flagged for follow-up for me and for my recipient. But I might want to set it's Importance as well first, so if you click this, you can set it as High Importance, it'll be flagged as such, or Low Importance. This case, it's High Importance, something I really want to make sure gets done, I'm going to remember to follow up, and my employee who I'm sending it to is going to be reminded to follow up on it as well.
