Third-Party Tools

No program can be all things to all people. There are probably PIM features you need that Outlook doesn't provide. In that case, you can use a large number of third-party add-ins to add more PIM functionality to Outlook. Some of the add-ins that can be particularly helpful are

  • Extended Reminders— Outlook supports reminders only in your default folders. If you create other folders for filing your Outlook items, you cannot flag those items for follow up and have a reminder trigger. Extended Reminders enables you to set reminders in any folder in your default mail store. Extended Reminders is available from http://www.slovaktech.com.

  • ClearView— Creating multiple Outlook folders can greatly simplify the organization and storage of Outlook items, but it can be a problem to view items in multiple folders at the same time. ClearView provides access to items in all of your Outlook folders from one main screen. You can schedule meetings with contacts directly from the ClearView interface. ClearView is available from http://www.nextword.com.

  • Franklin Covey PlanPlus— PlanPlus integrates the features and benefits of the Franklin Covey planning system into Outlook. It enables you to prioritize your task list and contains goal and mission statement wizards to help you follow the Franklin Covey plan. PlanPlus is available from http://www.franklincovey.com.
