Microsoft Outlook's Follow Up
Are you having trouble trying to keep track of emails you need to reply to later? Here's how to add a "Flag" to your messages to follow up later.
You can achieve this in two ways:
- Navigate to the message you want to mark for Follow Up. In the home tab, in the "Tags" group, click Follow Up, and then click a flag. (As you can see above, you have the options of Today, Tomorrow, This Week, Next Week, No Date, Custom, or Mark as Complete.)
- If you frequently use the Follow Up feature, you can set up the "Quick Click" default Follow Up length, which automatically sets the follow up if you simply click the flag in the reading pane's subject line, or when your message is selected, by pressing the "Insert key."
To see an accumulated list of all your Follow Ups, navigate to the "Task" section (see below), they will be defaulted to showing the earliest due first.
Be sure to watch for next week's tip to see how to add a reminder to the Follow Up.
