Drag and Drop For Quick Outlook Tasks

Posted November 16, 2003 by AlexTheBeast in Microsoft Outlook

Outlook allows users to quickly drag and drop to speed up routine tasks.

Many of us use Outlook to schedule our lives. This can be done even more quickly by dragging email into the calender, contact, or task sections of outlook.

If you get an email regarding a meeting, just drag and drop it into the calender to establish an associated appointment.

If you get an email and want to save the sender into your contacts, just drag and drop it into your contact section to easily save this contact information.

Likewise if you get an email and you want to remember to act on it, just drag it into your tasks section to establish the email as one of your active tasks.

These routine tasks will allow you to quickly sort your email and allow you to be more productive.
