Sticky Notes for Quick Reminders in Outlook

Most of us have busy schedules with multiple tasks on a daily basis, which can easily lead to feeling overwhelmed. Thus, smart management and prioritizing tasks are often crucial for successfully getting all tasks done. Sometimes it can be helpful to just quickly note an important phone number or reminder for later so that you don’t have to interrupt your email flow. It may also help you to write down thoughts and notes while composing an email. In this regard, Outlook gives you the option to use sticky notes in order to remind you of important and less important meetings and tasks. You can access them quite easily via keyboard shortcuts and enables you to add notes to emails, your Outlook calendar and more.
