In my Favourites are the above 3 folders - the actual dates shown are 5/5, 18/5 and 17/6 and I've converted them to avoid US/UK date order confusion.

The dates seem pretty random and I've not set them up (as far as I know!). Do we have any control over setting them up? I'm not sure why I need them so can I remove these and stop future ones? Or am I missing something obvious please!

This is in Outlook or Outlook on the web? I don't think Outlook is creating them on it's own... but I'm not sure exactly what they are. (A screenshot would help.)
Hello Diane. Above is a snip from my favourites.

Hi Diane. I don't want to name openly the Directly guy - he's HERE
I picked up a very sarcastic comment from Jim Wynne about the advice given and the drivereasy link but I can't find it at the moment.

Ah... now i see. I thought you meant in Outlook. :) Those are tab groups you saved as bookmarks - right click on a tab and choose add to favorites. it creates a folder with todays date in it and saves all open tabs to favorites.

if they dont get reported, they won't receive coaching (and the worst of the worst won't be removed). Unfortunately, i dont see the program ending anytime soon - so we need to work on improving the ones in the program and getting good help. :) Most the ones who are pretty good don't stick around long. :(
