Part 14. Getting Started with Outlook > Creating a Journal Entry

Creating a Journal Entry

Click the Journal icon on the Outlook bar Folder list. (If this is your first time using Journal feature, Office will walk you through a setup process; just follow the prompts.)

Click the New button on the Standard toolbar to open the Journal Entry window.

Type a subject for the journal entry in the Subject text box.

INTRODUCTION

Outlook's Journal feature gives you a place to record your activities. For example, if you spoke on the phone with an important business contact, sent a critical email message, worked on a confidential file, or performed some other crucial task, you might note this on your journal. The Journal feature also automatically keeps track of work you perform in other Office applications.


TIP

Entry Types

Specifying the entry type is very important because this is how the Journal feature tracks your entries. For example, if you select Microsoft Word, the Journal feature tracks the amount of time and documents you work on.


Click the down arrow next to the Entry Type field and select the kind of task you're performing.

Click the down arrow next to the Duration field and select the amount of time you've spent performing the task.

Click the Save and Close button to save the journal entry and return to the Outlook Journal view.

The journal entry is added.
