Email Survival Skills: Survival Tips Compatible with Microsoft Outlook 2010 & 2013 (2015)
Customize Column Headings: Multi-Tool Knife
Another tool in your Repair Kit that needs a separate category is the multi-tool knife. A Swiss Army Knife is an excellent example of a “must have” multi-tool knife for your backpack. With it you have a wire stripper, corkscrew, bottle opener, screwdriver, scissors, tweezers and a toothpick – to name just some of the most important features of the multi-tool knife.
In a similar fashion, like a Swiss Army Knife, Microsoft Outlook has many options or tools to help you organize and process an amazing array of information if you know how to manipulate the tool.
For instance, the column headings are a good place to take advantage of the tools that the Inbox offers. Standard Inbox headings include the Icon, From, Subject, Received and Flag Status. Flag Status is constant and cannot be removed, but you can add more tools to the column headings.
Additional informational headings you may like or need are CC, BCC, Attachments High Priority, and Size.
To add the additional column headings to the Inbox, follow these simple steps:
· Click on the View Tab
· Move to the Arrangement Group and choose “Add Columns.”
The box below will appear. Whatever information you need to see, highlight the heading and click “Add.” It will be added to the column headings and information will magically appear. Move the desired column headings from the Available columns dialog box on the left to the dialog box on the right that says “Show these columns in this order.”
Notice you can highlight a column and move it up or down in the list. You may also remove an unwanted column.
