1.5. Notes

Notes are small text-only scratch pads that can be used on the fly to store tidbits of information that you don't have time to file properly or that are not of long-term value. A Note can store about 30 KB of text, which allows considerable room for details. Many users either disdain Notes as too simplistic or try to use Notes to do things for which they were not intended. Notes are a powerful and useful feature of Outlook, as long as you don't try to exceed their design limitations.

1.5.1. Uses and Functions of Notes

  • Record a quick reminder or phone number

  • Keep a list of interesting URLs to check next time you're surfing

  • Jot down details of a phone conversation; after you're through, cut and paste the contents into a Journal item or Contact record

  • Jot down an idea for a project; when time permits, flesh it out, transfer it to email, and forward it to your boss
