Remember to contact a contact
Here's another great use for follow-up flags in Outlook: If you need to remember to get in touch with a contact (maybe to find out if that cheque is still in the post!) you can set a follow-up flag to appear at a designated time. To do this just right click on a contact in Outlook and select Follow-Up. Select a flag from the drop-down list of options or type your own text. Now add a date/time if needed to have Outlook remind you at the selected time.
By using custom views in Outlook you can then view or sort your contacts by their flag status making it really simply to remember who you have to contact and when.
