Chapter 16. Managing Information with Outlook > Recording Items in the Journal

Recording Items in the Journal

The Outlook Journal is a diary of all the activities and interactions from your day. With everything organized on a timeline, you can see an overview of what you accomplished and when and how long certain activities took. The Journal also provides an alternate way to locate a particular item or a file. You can have the Journal automatically record entries of your phone calls, e-mail messages, meeting requests and responses, tasks, faxes, and documents on which you've worked. You must record tasks, appointments, personal conversations, and existing documents manually.
