On occasion, I do discover a mistake that I made in class. Below is part of the long list of Questions and Answers I sent to Indiana State University following my presentation of Outlook Power User. I keep track of all questions that my students ask, in regards to the material, that we cannot answer in class and I email them the results of my research.
I found a portion of the lecture that I skipped over concerning voting buttons. While reviewing the voting button setting in Technet to discover if it is possible to receive the result over Outlook Anywhere, I found that I skipped a step. Below is the complete procedure from creating the email to viewing the results.
1. Start by creating a new e-mail.
2. Address the email and give it the subject and body that you want to use.
3. Click the Options tab
4. Click Use Voting Buttons.
5. You can use the present voting options or click Custom.
6. You have the option of clicking Save Sent Item and telling Outlook to use another folder or to use the Default Folder which will place the message in your Sent Items folder.
7. Send the message.
8. Once you have responses, go to Sent Items (Or whatever folder you saved the message to).
9. Open the original email that you sent.
10. In the upper left hand corner in the Show area, click Tracking. This will show you the results.
• For your users to vote.
o When they receive the message, have them look in the upper left hand corner of the window in the Respond section.
o Click Vote and select the their option.
