Just the other day, I realized I hadn't shared this great tip with you. I'm not sure if you're aware of it, but Outlook has multiple views on different things such as Contacts or Tasks.
On the right you'll see what I'm talking about with different views. This may surprise you, but this list is not static!
You can add things to this list simply by
- clicking on the menu View
- then mousing over Arrange By..., Current View, then clicking on Define Views
- on the next dialog, simply click on the New button and follow the on-screen instructions.
You can add as many custom views as you want. Don't forget that you can create views that filter on Categories.
