Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding tags, part of Outlook Web App (OWA) 2013 Essential Training.

And so I can use one of 25…different colors to be able to visually mark my messages.…
This category here is called the pink category and if…I point to the swath you can see it here.…I can assign multiple categories to a message, and…I can make up my own names for the categories.…So this is how we might, for example,…say, I'd like to be able to have a category for project 22.…I'd like to be able to have a category for budgets.…I'd like to be able to have a category for work that I've to to do out of the office.…Lots of different choices.…So, I simply named this one paint category,…
