We continue to ask readers to send comments and questions about planning, productivity and time management, to Jeff Doubek, Brand Spokesperson. Your response has been fantastic. Here is an answer to a user question that might be of interest.

- Because I am so mobile, I use Outlook Calendar to sync my appointment between my phone and office.
I want to use your products. I love your products. But I can’t seem to figure out how to make it all work. - DK
