Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Completing a task and sending an update, part of Outlook 2007: Time Management with Calendar and Tasks.
Judith has a task that she agreed to complete that was assigned by Olivia.…And let's take a look at how Judith can easily communicate with Olivia simply by…working on the task herself.…First, she can say, well I am working on this, it's In Progress.…She could also say it's Completed, that she's Waiting on someone else or it's…been Deferred to another time.…Probably you wouldn't defer a task you were working on for someone else.…But, she can say it's in progress.…Or, she can be more specific because this % Complete and this Status drop down…are tied to each other.…
So as soon as she starts working on this task and puts in any number other than…zero it will show was in progress and if she actually moves it to a 100% it…will show as complete.…So a couple of different ways that she can say this task is in progress or is done.…There's also Mark Complete button here and if she simply clicked in the task…list for example I am going to not save changes, but if she simply clicked this…flag to show that it was complete, then it would mark the task as complete.…
