How to Manually Record Items in Outlook 2013’s Journal
Click Folders in the Navigation pane (or press Ctrl+6).
The Folder list, which has a small icon for the Journal, appears in the Navigation pane.
Drag the item you want to record (such as an e-mail message or task) to the Journal icon in the Folder list.
The Journal Entry form shows an icon that represents the item you’re recording, along with the item’s name.
Fill in the information you want to record.
You don’t have to record anything. The text box at the bottom of the screen gives you space for making a note to yourself, if you want to use it.
Click the Save & Close button.
The item you recorded is entered in the Journal. You can see your new entry when you view your Journal.
