How to use Queued Actions

Queued actions are a great way to add action reminders to a contact. They are used when you already have a Next Action assigned to a contact. Add your most urgent action as a Next Action and the rest as queued actions so you don't miss out on following up. Then when you complete a Next Action you have the option to promote your queued Actions as Next Actions.
