Office 365 (Outlook 2011) - Add or remove a flag for follow up

To remind yourself to follow up on a message or contact, you can add a follow up flag. Any item with a follow up flag can also be assigned a start date, due date, and reminder time.

In the message list or contacts list, flagged items display the Follow up flag symbol. When you mark a flagged item as complete, the flag symbol changes to a checkmark Follow up flag - completed.

Flagged messages and contacts also appear alongside tasks in Tasks view.

  1. Select an item in the message list or contacts list.

    To select multiple items, hold down command as you click the items.

  2. On the Home tab, click the arrow next to Follow Up:

    Home tab, group 5

    Select the desired action from the drop-down menu.

 Note   To quickly add a follow up flag or to mark an message as complete, click the follow up icon Follow up flag - not set next to a message in the message list.
