Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Deleting a task or flagged item, part of Outlook Web App (OWA) 2013 Essential Training.
…I've revived a task that I completed…earlier, The Benefits Admission Task, so that I…can show you an alternative, and talk to…you about deleting tasks, and deleting flagged items.…If I have a task and I delete it, the task simply goes away, it's gone.…The task was created here in tasks, it's now in my deleted…items folder, and I can get it back from there if I wish.…But I no longer have a record that I…completed that task.…For some small tasks that might be exactly what I want to have happen.…
If I however, decide that I want to delete this…item here, and I select it and choose delete.…I didn't just delete it from here.…And I wasn't warned about it, and this is worth knowing.…If I go back to my Outlook email, you'll remember…that this was a request that originally came in the…form of an email, and it is no longer here,.…Where is it?…It's living in my deleted items folder.…Right here.…So, when I delete a flagged item, the item I'm deleting isn't a task, it's an email.…
