Saving Time with Quick Steps
Quick Steps are a great new feature in Outlook 2010, designed to make working
with email faster and more efficient. A quick step takes several actions and
combines them into one, saving you time and mouse clicks. For example, you can mark
an email as read and move it to a specified folder, or reply to an email and delete it,
with just one click.
Outlook 2010 includes prebuilt Quick Steps, but you can also create your own,
making it faster to perform repetitive tasks when dealing with email.
Applying a Quick Step
You can select and apply Quick Steps from any folder that holds email messages (such
as your inbox) or while you’re reading a received message in a message window:
• If you’re in a folder, the Quick Steps gallery appears on the Home tab. The
gallery displays a bunch of different Quick Steps, so you can quickly choose the
one you want. ( Quickly is the whole point, right?)
• If you’re in a message window, the Quick Steps gallery appears on the
Message tab.
Figure 10-15 shows what the Quick Steps gallery looks like. To apply a Quick Step,
select the email you want (if you’re in a folder), go to the gallery, and then click the
action you want. And that’s all there is to it—Outlook performs the action you chose.
There’s a reason why they call these Quick Steps.
