Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Delegating and tracking tasks, part of Outlook 2007: Time Management with Calendar and Tasks.
When we look at the items here in the To-Do List, we see that we have tasks…and we also have items that are flagged, flagged contacts, flagged email…messages like this one and the To-Do List makes it feel like those items are…equivalent, but they're really not because there's a special magic that…applies only to tasks and that's the ability to easily delegate them and then…track the delegation.…If I click on just my Tasks view, I see items that I can delegate.…So, let's go back to the To-Do List first, so I can show you this difference.…
If I open this item, I can forward it to somebody else if I wish to.…I could forward it and type on the top, you know please make sure that you do…this task for me, Can you do this?…And then address it and send it to somebody else and they can write back and say…sure, I'm happy to work on that for you.…However, I don't have an easy way to follow up with them except to continue…emailing them or pick up the phone and call and say hi, how's that task going…and that's because this is nothing more than an email message.…
