Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a task from scratch, part of Outlook 2007: Time Management with Calendar and Tasks.
I want to create a new task and I'm not starting with an existing contact that I…want to flag or an existing email.…I just need to remember that there's something I have to do this week and I need…to make a bank deposit.…So there are two different ways to think about how I create a task.…One way is to actually be in the Tasks folder and then create a new task, couple…of different ways to do this.…One is simply to click the New button to open a new task form, another way is…to double-click here in the bottom of the To-Do List and it will create a new form either way.…
So, I want to make the bank deposit on Friday and this is a High Priority.…There is no reminder automatically set here so I'm going to click Reminder…and it says 8 o'clock in the morning and that will be fine but I really…prefer a reminder around 9.…And I can categorize this if I wish as Important, if this was something that was…personal I could mark it as Private so that other people couldn't see my details…about this even if they did have permission to see my To-Do List.…
