Emails that you flag for follow-up can be displayed in the To-Do app, as can items created in Planner. In this video, learn how to flag items and track them with To-Do.
- [Instructor] One way that we can state an intention about followup is to apply a flag to an item that we receive in our inbox. So, for example, I've been asked here if I would be a speaker at an event. I need to review this backdrop, and I can flag this message. I can either click to apply the default flag, or I can say I need to look at this tomorrow. I can also flag the inquiry that I have from Elyse so that I follow up on it, as well, and I'm going to do that this week. When I go to my to-do app after some period of time, these flagged items will show up. Let's get some coffee was an item I'd flagged previously, but here they are. This one due today, one due tomorrow, and one without a due date. Because if I simply flag an item and don't choose a specific time, then it is flagged with no due date. So if I go back up to I'd like to get some coffee sometime, and I give it a more specific time, like next week, then it will also get a date. The default sort order for these flagged items is basically when they were created. And I can collapse and expand these. But I have other sort orders I can use. I can sort them by their importance, I can sort them by their due date. Today, tomorrow, unspecified, followed by those that have been completed. I can sort them alphabetically, I can sort them by creation date, and if I remove the sort, it goes back to this smart grouping based on when they were flagged. So there is a reason, when I'm here in Mail, and I know that I need to follow up on something to make sure that I flag it so I don't forget. To reply to Teddi's request to speak to her group in a Zoom meeting. And to make sure that I don't forget to follow up with Rachel next week. This is one way I get all of my tasks in one place, whether they're flagged emails or tasks that I've created here in Outlook. And there is yet one more way that I can take an item from email and get it to the task list. That's the next movie.
