ClearContext has special task, schedule and follow up features that make processing emails into actionable work quick and easy. Tasks can be created from emails by pressing the Task button. A task window pre-populated with information from the email will pop up and the start date can be set for FRESH prioritization. If you have a due date you can optionally add that to the task name. Another convenience is the option to automatically file the original email into the Processed Mail file and assignment of a category/project at the same time.
Appointments can be scheduled in a process similar to the Task button with the Schedule button under more actions on the ClearContext toolbar. In the same way, the appointment parameters can be set, the original message filed to the processed mail folder and assignment made to a category/project all from the same step.
Follow up tasks are used to make sure a response has been received to a sent email. While composing an email, the Followup button can be selected on the ClearContext toolbar/menu to automatically create a follow up task when the email is sent. This follow up task will have the original email attached and named “Followup:” plus the original email subject. Conveniently, this follow up task will automatically be completed if the recipient replies to the email, saving time and effort for checking up on important emails.
The Task, Schedule and Followup features are just a few examples of how ClearContext can help you become more productive with getting your work done in Outlook and with Michael Linenberger’s MYN.
