GTD outlook plugin - DEFER task versus TASK task?
I've been using the Outlook plugin for some time and am very pleased with it. I did have a question. What is the difference between using the DEFER button and selecting a task versus using the TASK button and creating a task.
I usually use the defer button to create appointments and when you select the task option from the defer dialog box it brings up a task form that is almost identical to using the task button. The only difference seems to be that the email is stored in the @deferred folder instead of the @actions folder.
Can someone explain how you would use it differently?
Defer task only creates a task. It doesn't create apptmt.
When I've used the defer button and select task, it only creates a task. It does not create an appointment and a task.
It would make sense that the defer button should always create an appointment. AND then give the option to also create a task but it doesn't.
