Secrets of the Office Masters: Building a Library of Saved Searches

One way to dramatically increase your productivity is to build a library of saved searches that you can reopen easily. Even if you need to modify one or two details of a saved search, it's usually much easier to do so than to start from scratch.

For searches that target folders containing e-mail messages, Outlook 2003 allows you to create a special type of shortcut called a search folder. When you click one of these shortcuts, Outlook runs the saved search and displays the results in the contents pane. For searches in other folders, you can save the search settings in an Office Search shortcut file, with the extension .oss. To keep track of these saved searches, create a subfolder in My Documents or on the Start menu and call it Saved Outlook Searches. Whenever you create and save a search, store the shortcut here so you can access it again.
