Don’t Forget Your Flags

Don’t Forget Your Flags

I don’t know about you, but I’m terrible with flagged e-mails.

Flagging something for later is a great idea until you forget it’s at the bottom of your e-mail list! In those cases, it’s forgotten just like everything I didn’t flag.

So, now what?

Well, in MS Outlook 2007, you can not only mark it with a flag, but you can also set a due date. With the due date set, Outlook will list the item in your To-Do list on the To-Do Bar.

With the message on the list, you’ll find that it’s not as easy to forget since the To-Do list automatically moves things up in priority as the due date nears.

If this sounds like a good idea, here’s what you need to know:

Once it’s in the To-Do list, assuming you use the list regularly, it shouldn’t be so easy to forget.

Wow, if only this were available for everything in life!
