Savings Word files to Outlook / Clear Context folders

Is it possible to save Word files directly to a Clear Context / Outlook folder? Using Clear Context has helped me to organize my emails by project, but my Word files associated with the Projects are located elsewhere. I would like to have all my information (emails and Word files) available in the same Outlook folder. Possible?

Currently that is not possible, and there may be technical limitations in storing files such as Word documents directly in an Outlook folder. However, for a future release, we are looking into associating file folders with Projects so that one can also manage files by Project even if they are external to Outlook.

I'd like to emphatically agree with wiserxx1's comments and say that this would be an excellent enhancement to ClearContext functionality. Project management often involves the need to create/keep standalone files in addition to emails. The best way to file these is to have a folder structure available in the computer's file system that mirrors the Outlook folder hierarchy. Right now, I frequent create these folders manually under a "Projects" folder within My Documents. If ClearContext can have an option to create and/or associate these folders at the same time it creates the Outlook folder, that would be great. It's encouraging that this is already being looked at. I think most users would consider this a highlight feature.
