In FYI, you can create a Task directly related to an email or any type of document via the drawer. Referencing the email or document directly saves time by providing context for the task.
As well as for Word, Excel or PowerPoint documents, you can create Tasks for PDFs, for the FYI client interactions (Phone Calls, File Notes and Meetings), or any type of file you have uploaded to FYI, (such as images or zipped files).
When adding a Task to an Email, Word, Excel or PowerPoint document, the same process applies, whether the drawer is accessed in FYI or from Outlook or the Office product.
For a video walkthrough that includes this feature, refer to Creating Tasks Tutorial (5 min).
