From one thing to another in Microsoft Outlook

Tuesday November 9, 2010 at 2:34pm
Have you ever received an email and thought “I need to put something in my diary to deal with that”, or “I need reminding to sort that out”.

No need to waste time re-typing things into your diary or task list. Just drag the email from your Inbox to your Calendar or Tasks folder (drop it on one of the buttons at the bottom left of the screen) and Outlook will create an appointment or task with the same subject and with the contents of the email in the Notes section so you know what it’s all about.

All you have to do is enter a date and save it. Then you can file the email knowing you won’t forget about it.

Oh, and if you receive an email from someone you’d like to add to your Contacts folder, just drag the email to the Contacts folder – job done (yes, all you experienced Outlook users, I know there’s another way to do that, but this does work as well!)
