Filing Outlook messages in multiple folders

As you know, SimplyFile predicts into which Outlook folder you will want to file any particular message. So to move a message to that folder, all you need to do is click a button. Much faster and less error-prone than drag and drop.

Now, what if you would like to file a message in to more than one folder? SimplyFile has a way to do that as well. Just press the Ctrl key while filing the message. When you use ‘Ctrl + File Message’, SimplyFile leaves a copy of the message you are filing in its original folder, so you can file that message again into another folder.

  2. Think about adding a multiple file option with a dropdown folder list that allows checkbox selection. Just a thought
