View Full Version : Centralising the Filing System



14-03-2001, 08:18 PM
Situation: I receive emails (Outlook 2000) & faxes (Winfax Pro) and want to combine them by customer name into one folder viewable with Windows Explorer (or similar)along with the customers doc and excel files.
Example of Outcome: Customer 'A' would have one folder which had emails, faxes and word/Ecels files, everything in one place compared to the three directory trees I have to look up now.
Having to 'open ' every file and 'save as' into another location is a rather troconian way in this modern world.
How can I achieve a more streamlined way of achieving this outcome?

Thanks

Hi Sergio,

Outlook 2000 allows you to use Explorer view: Turn on the Outlook bar, and click on Other Shortcuts, then My Computer. Create a button to go straight to your fax folder, and a button to return to the Inbox and viola! outlook will allow you to integrate the two.
P.S it makes a great web browser too. (folder properties, homepage tab)
