People have discovered how great Follow-up flags can be. However, most folks who use them just click it to flag a particular item they’re working on. This automatically sets the follow-up for Today. Right-click the flag instead to find other choices, such as This Week, Next Week or Custom Date.
You can also set reminders on this right-click menu. In addition, you can set a No Date follow-up flag. Consider carefully whether you need to set a flag at all. A No Date item is more likely to cause clutter than facilitate productivity!
