Flag Markers are special marker points on certain database records, such as on a Note or a Contact. You can assign a flag marker on Notes, Events, Tasks, Contacts, Planners, Noteboard Blocks and Journals.
The markers are useful in identifying the status of the record. eg: you could have a flag marker called "todo" which you use for assigning against a Note, or you could assign a flag marker to a contact called "Follow up", identifying that this contact needs attention.
These flag marked items can be listed on your Home Page as a quick access to the item.
See "Changing the Home Page" for more information.
