Flagging Documents for Follow Up

If you have an Office document that you need to work on later or get feedback from a co-worker, you can flag the document for follow up as an Entourage task. You can use the Office Reminder program to schedule a date and time for a pop-up reminder. When the date and time for the reminder takes place, the Office Reminder window appears—even if Office isn’t running—displaying options to dismiss the reminder, dismiss all reminders, snooze the reminder for a short period of time, open the item, or do nothing.
