Create and manage notes
Some functionality of the Notes feature in Outlook 2013 has been modified from that of
previous versions, as follows:
The Notes folder is still available in the Folder List, and the Notes module is available
from the Navigation Bar.
Notes options are not available in the Outlook Options dialog box. You can create
new notes, but only with the default color and font settings. (The note color does
change to reflect any color categories that you assign to it.)
Linking from a note to a contact record is no longer possible; however, you can
attach a note to a contact record from within the contact record.
You can view the content of the Notes module in three standard views:
Icon view This view depicts each note as a colored square with a turned up corner,
reminiscent of a pad of sticky notes.
In Icon view, you can display large icons organized in rows and columns, or small
icons organized either in rows or in columns.
Notes List view This list view displays a small icon, the note subject, and up to
three lines of note content.
● Last 7 Days view This view is identical to Notes List view but displays only notes
that have been modified within the last seven days.
In either list view, you can choose from two standard arrangements: Categories and
Created Date. As with other list views, you can sort notes by a specific field by clicking
the column header for that field, and you can add or remove fields from the list view.
Tip The first line of text in the note is shown as its subject.
