…As with the Inbox, and the Context folder, and…the Calendar which we'll get to next, this Task List is highly customizable.…So if I'm looking at Tasks,…the Task View shows me information about items that were created as tasks.…And there are built in views: detail, which shows me when they're due,…when they're completed and so on; Simple List; Active Tasks, which will remove…the first item because it's been completed but will show me more information…similar to the detailed view; tasks that have been completed and when they were…completed; tasks that are over due; tasks that have been assigned to someone else.…So, these are different views.…Also you can open the View tab and…change whatever you'd like to change here in terms of view settings.…You can switch from one view to another or…you can customize the view using the advanced view settings.…
