This section describes how to use flags in the add-in for Outlook:
Flags (formerly follow-ups) provide a way to bring someone's attention to a message in a Conversation or on a wall. When you assign flags, the people you assign them to are flagged in the application, and, depending on their notifications settings, receive an email (see How do I set my add-in for Outlook notification options?).
When you flag someone, you also select a priority level. Flag priority levels let the people you assign flags to know whether or not the flag is urgent. There are three levels of priority:
For Your Information—Least urgent. Asks recipients to look at the item when they have time.
Please Reply—Moderately urgent. Asks recipients to post a reply to the item.
Please Reply - Urgent—Asks recipients to look at the item now and reply immediately. An email notification is sent automatically to anyone assigned a Please Reply - Urgent flag.
For an explanation of all the flag icons, see Table 8-1
To make sure flags send the message look at this now! use them thoughtfully. A flood of flag notifications all at once or all the time can reduce their impact.
