Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding flags and the To Do list, part of Outlook 2010: Effective Email Management.
If you used Office 2003, or an earlier version of Office, you might be used…to flags in Outlook that are basically color flags that allow you to…categorize something.…As we saw in the last video, that's not the use of flags in Outlook 2010.…In Outlook 2010, flags are used not for filtering and sorting based on a group;…flags are used to pin a time to the Calendar to say that you are going to do…something on a particular day or in a particular range of days.…So if I simply click and attach a flag to something, three things happen all at the same time.…
