Outlook 20102016: Flagging Messages for Follow Up Video


Messages may not always be responded to, forwarded, or even fully read when first received. To ensure a message does not get lost you may flag it. There are several options to choose from, along with a way to customize, add a reminder, check as complete, and clear flags.
As in other sections of Outlook 20102016, there are several ways to do this. This lesson will cover two methods.


  1. From the Tags group, click the down arrow on Follow-Up.
  2. Click on Add Reminder.
  3. Scroll to notice the various options. Set the Reminder time as 11:00 a.m.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Notice the Flag reminder is now in color. This reminds you follow-up is needed for this message.
  6. Close the email by clicking the X.
  7. Note you can also Flag a message right from the Inbox without opening the message or right-clicking on it.

After following up, you can clear the flag for follow up.
1. Right-mouse click on the Office Supplies email.
