49. Should I Use Tasks Or Flags?
Flag for simple reminders
Consider using a Flag instead of a Task when you want to quickly set a simple reminder (it’s a
click). Outlook 2003/7Flags have the added feature of six colour options (then test your memory

Flags are based on an existing item (Email, Task, Contact, Appointment.) Tasks can be created
new and can stand alone.

text you want in the Flag to: box.
