form for db updates to do?

P: n/a
I'm making a db for someone who tends to put things off. Suppose she
receives an email from a client asking that she change the client's address
or phone number in her records - or change some sort of permission status.
(Her work requires a lot of different permissions.)

Suppose there's some reason not to update the db immediately - she's about
to leave for an appointment. If it were me, I'd flag the email in Outlook so
I'd know I needed to followup. Then when I'd updated the db I'd mark the
flag completed. But my client has a completely different use for the email
flags in Outlook.

I could train her to use the Outlook notes like post-its, for this - or
possibly Tasks. Or I could make a simple db form for work to do. But isn't
that absurd? Surely it would take about the same time to enter something
like "change X's email address to something@somewhere" as to just update the
db?

How do others handle this? TIA
