Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Flagging emails for future action, part of Outlook 2013: Efficient Email Management.
- I have an email from Susan Webb…and I've read it twice.…I want to remember to respond to her…but I need to do a little bit of research…because she is asking a question not just about what I know,…but what I can find out about database architects…and the needs for that in my area.…So I'm going to flag this for followup.…One way to do this is to click the drop down arrow here…on the ribbon on the home tab and choose today, tomorrow,…this week, next week, no date, custom and so on.…Also with this message selected,…there is an outline, a shadow of a flag that appears…above the date in this compact view,…and I can click on that or right-click on it…and fire up that same menu that I see earlier.…
I actually want to do this next week,…so I'm going to choose next week,…and it will go on the list and you'll notice…that that flag color is not bright red but actually pink.…When I flag that, three things happened at the same time.…The first thing that happened is,…there's actually a banner placed…in the message that says followup,…
