Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Mark messages, part of Outlook 2016: Efficient Email Management.
- [Voiceover] Given the tools that outlook provides…for being able to track action that you want to take…with messages, I'm always surprised by how many users…use the Read or Unread status of a message to determine…whether or not they intend to do something more with it.…For example, I have friends who would look at this…invitation from Kathe Stevens to meet Jean Maxwell…and go oop, want to follow up on that.…And instead of clicking the Follow Up Flag,…which we'll be talking about later,…they would just right click and mark that as Unread…to remember that they need to do something with it.…
That's way too hard for me because then I have to also…remember what I need to do with that message.…Actually, I use the Unread tag for a different purpose.…I use Unread when I haven't read a message…or when I've merely skimmed through the message…and haven't read it in depth, it's a dense message,…there's a lot there, and I want to make sure…that I unpack it all, but I only have time to skim it now,…then I'll still mark it as Unread.…
