By default, the Task list displays all active items. From the ribbon, use the Filter Tasks drop down menu and the three checkboxes to further refine or expand your filter selection to view completed items; overdue items; items due today, this week or this month; or high priority items. In the navigation sidebar, use the categories list to filter the task list by category. Expand the Smart Folder group to view items that are Due Today, Overdue, Recently Completed, or High Priority.
