Turning on the Journal
The Journal is especially useful for recording information
related to phone calls to and from people in your Contacts
list. The first time you open the Journal folder (using the
icon in the Folder List or the Journal icon in My Shortcuts
list on the Outlook bar), a message appears, asking whether
you want to turn the Journal feature on. Click Yes.
The Journal Options dialog box appears.
In the dialog box, you can specify what type of events you
want to have automatically recorded in the Journal. Check
boxes are provided to include e-mail messages, meeting requests,
and other events that are received from people in your Contacts
Step by Step
- In the Automatically Recorded These Items
list, check those items you want Outlook to automatically
record in your Journal. (The items recorded correspond with
the people selected in the list of contacts in step 2.)
- In the For These Contacts list, check
any contacts you want automatically recorded in the Journal.
Outlook records any items selected in step 1 that apply
to the selected contacts.
- In the Also Record Files From list, check
the applications for which you want to record Journal entries.
Outlook records the date and time you create or modify files
in the selected programs.
- When you have completed your selections, click the OK
button. The Journal opens. It is now ready to automatically
record the items that you chose in the Journal Options dialog
