Configuring SimplyTag

Step 1 - Restart Outlook to see the SimplyTag buttons on the Ribbon Home tab of the main Outlook window.

SimplyTag on the Outlook Ribbon


If you do not see SimplyTag buttons after you run the installer and restart Outlook, first make sure Outlook’s Ribbon is fully expanded. If that does not help, try the suggestions in this FAQ or this FAQ.

Step 2 - Configure your categories if you have not already done so.

If you have already configured Categories using Outlook built-in Category functionality, SimplyTag will use them. If not, use the Manage Categories And Actions Window (located under SimplyTag drop-down) to create the Categories you will use to tag your messages.

Step 3 - That is all you need to get started. Start using SimplyTag and see how easy it makes organizing and managing your email.

Using SimplyTag

After you have configured your categories, using SimplyTag is very easy. SimplyTag will show the most likely suggested category on the One-Click-Tag Button. Click that button to apply the suggested category. Alternatively, you can use the Tag With Drop Down or the QuickTag Window to apply other categories.
