Be An Elephant. Never Forget Again

How’s Your Memory?

Do you ever forget to follow up on important outgoing emails (answers required, proposals, quotes?)

Need a memory prompt for bills to pay or people to contact?

Throw away those scraps of paper and let me introduce you to Tasks – your new memory prompter. Once you start using Tasks – you’ll wonder how you lived without this function before!

How to create a Task

  1. Go to your Tasks Folder, click the New button  or
  2. While you’re anywhere in Outlook go to the File menu, point to New and Click Task.
  3. In the Subject box, type a Taskname.
  4. Complete any other boxes on the Task and Details tabs for information you want to record for the Task.

To make the Task recur (for bill payments, events, birthdays) click Recurrence, click the frequency (Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly) at which you want the task to recur.
