I am creating various Quick Steps, and I would like to customize the follow up flag message, so that I don't have to type it in every time. Is there a way to do this?

No, if you can't set the for follow up text in the quick step, you'll need to type it in as you do it. Or use VBA instead.

You can't call VBA from a quick step, but you could try a macro such as this to set the text with a second click. Or you could use a macro in place of the quick step.

Code:
Public Sub AssignFlag() 
 
Set oItem = ActiveExplorer.Selection.Item(1) 
 
oItem.FlagRequest = "We need to call back in 5 days" 
 
End Sub
