One of the great new innovations in Outlook 2007 is how easy it is to see and manage your Tasks. From within your inbox, You can view your Tasks. On the right-hand side of the screen, notice the To-Do Bar, and you can see here that we have 4 Tasks today. To see more of it, you can either click on the bar directly, or click on the button above to expand the To-Do Bar. The top half, we have a date navigator and our appointments for today. Beneath that we have our Tasks. You see all the Tasks listed, and you can even click here where it says "Type a new task" to add a new Task.
You can mark test as complete, if you'd like, or change when they're due, manage them to hover you need. If you double-click on one here, you'll open it up so you can set all of its details. There's two other places you can view and manage your Tasks. You can always view your Tasks from within your calendar as well, from either the weekly or the daily view. And you'll see your Tasks pane at the bottom. And of course, you can view your Tasks from the Task section. I'm going to click on it in the Navigation pane to go to my Tasks. Here's a list of all the Tasks, and if you look at the Current View group, you can see there's many different options for ways to view your tasks.
We're looking at a Simple List right now. But we can look also at a Detailed List, or only Active Tasks. You can look at them by Category, or, and this is a very useful new tool, Task Timeline. So this will show you your Tasks and when you're supposed to have them done, a really good visual representation of what you have to do over the next little while.
