Many users use their Inbox like a To-Do list. What should you do with emails that you have already decided to work on at a FUTURE date/time? Here’s a neat way of getting them out of your Inbox until you need them.
QuickFile PRO for Outlook adds a Defer button to your Outlook. You can use this button to move emails out of your Inbox and then have them magically reappear at your pre-set date and time.
- Select the email.
- Click on the Defer button on the toolbar/Ribbon to display the following screen.
- Enter the date and time or you can choose a number of days/hours/minutes when you want the emails to come back to your Inbox.
- Click OK.
The email will be moved out and come back at your set date and time. If you have used Email Notes for Outlook to add notes to the email then your notes will also stay (and come back) with your email.
