Create 2 folders; 'Contacts' and 'The Project'. In the contacts folder, add a contact. In the Project folder, add a few tasks. Figure 1shows how your screen might look.

To get an overview of all items that you're waiting for, select the 'All folders' (top) folder, and modify the filtering to shwo 'only waiting-for items'. This will filter out all items except those that are being waited for.

Once you're done reviewing those items, change the filter back to 'all active items' to continue working.
