Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Flag emails for future action, part of Outlook 2016: Efficient Email Management.
- [Voiceover] I received this message…over the weekend,…and there are a couple of requests…for information in here,…but specifically,…there's some information about…can I make a connection for Carolina…to someone who knows about…Landon Hotels doing labyrinths in the States,…if they are, because they're doing one in London.…I want to remember to do something with this,…and not let it slip off my screen.…And therefore I want to flag this for follow-up.…I can do that by clicking here,…by right-clicking the flags,…or by choosing the options on the Follow Up dropdown…in the tags area on the Home tab of the ribbon.…
Notice that when you flag,…you're flagging an intention for time.…This is not marking a message…as having low, medium or high importance,…this is actually saying I want to do something with this,…today, tomorrow, this week, next week.…Now this week and next week both use…the settings that you've provided,…or that you didn't change,…that indicate what day your week starts on…and what day your work week ends on.…
