Following up on Contacts in Outlook Mobile

If you're used to using the Follow Up feature in Outlook Contacts on the desktop (Actions >Follow Up), you may find it frustrating that Outlook Mobile has no parallel feature. Here's a workaround: Make a new category called Follow Up, apply that category to the appropriate contacts, and then, to see a list of follow-ups, use the dropdown box in the upper left-hand corner of the main Contacts screen (or Menu >Filter) to filter your Contacts list by that category.
To create a new category in Contacts, open a contact and scroll down to the Categories field. Tap the word "Categories." This will bring up the category list. Tap New (or the Add/Delete tab) and add your new category.
