I've set up the following folders in Outlook (NB. I do NOT yet have the Outlook Add-in software):
@AS (Action Support)
@Incub8 (for things I'm wanting to think about first)
@WF (Waiting For)
My procedure for using the @WF Folder is this:
I send an email off to someone, then go immediately to the Sent Items folder to pick it up and drag it over to the @WF Folder. Is this the best way to do it? I want to be able to refer to the message that I just typed off to someone in my @WF Folder when I review; that's why I've been dragging the message I've just sent across to that folder.
I feel maybe I might be doing something the long way here. Sometimes I have to wait a few seconds before the sent message appears in my Sent Items folder before I can drag it across; I can imagine David Allen standing behind me shaking his head...
Thanks for your help everyone.
