7.14. How Do I Manually Create a Journal Entry?

You'll want to manually create a journal entry many times.

1.
From the File menu, select New and then Journal Entry to display the Journal Entry form.

2.
Type in the Subject (something like Phone call to ABC or Meeting with XYZ, Inc.).

3.
Select an Entry Type. Along with the entry types that can be automatically journaled, several more (such as Phone Call, Fax, Letter, and so on) handle most basic business journaling needs. If you want to create additional journal entry types, refer to FAQ 7.16.

4.
Specify a Company.

5.
Select the Start time information as well as the Duration. You can also click the Start Timer button so that Outlook tracks how long a task takes you. For example, if you want to time a phone call, you simply click the Start Timer button when you begin the call. The Start Timer button then is disabled and the Pause Timer button is enabled. This way, if you're interrupted—or for whatever reason want to pause the timing of the event—you can click that button. When you're ready to resume, click the Start Timer button again. Note that that Duration field automatically updates for each minute that clicks by. When you're finished, click the Save and Close button.

6.
In the text box below the Duration label, type in a description of the journal entry.

7.
Click the Contacts button and select the contacts that were associated with this journal entry.

8.
Click the Categories button and select the categories associated with this journal entry.

9.
If you do not want anyone else to be able to view the journal entry, click the Private option.

10.
When you are finished, click the Save and Close button.
