I want a single place to see everything I have flagged for further action, whether it is related to a received email or is something I enter adhoc (ToDo).  I want to be able to prioritize them to see what is hottest.  Then I want an audit trail of what I have done.  FollowUps and ToDos share some common data points such as dates and text descriptions, and I wonder why on earth IBM hasn't integrated the reporting more tightly.  I suppose some people will say "what about meetings... you can't add FollowUp flags to meetings".  Well, yeah... I want that too so I can flag meetings with FollowUps.  If the mail template provided a nice hotlist interface that helps people manage their work, you can bet it would help Lotus' image.  This would be a great opportunity for IBM to offer an out-of-the-box function that provides obvious benefit to end users, and actually seems easy to do.

At Lotusphere in the Usability labs you could have a look @ what's coming up for task management. It goes far beyond what u describe. I will provide a single view from Things2Do in Notes Mail, Activites, Quickr and other sources. Truly united view.
