▪ In the Calendar module, the Daily Task List appears below the calendar in Day, Work
Week, or Week view. When expanded, the Daily Task List displays the tasks due,
including the category and task type, during the displayed time period. In Day view, the
start date, due date, and reminder time also appear.
TIP If you don’t see the Daily Task List in Day, Work Week, or Week view, click the
Daily Task List button in the Layout group on the View tab, and then click Normal.
Like the Folder Pane and the People Pane, you can minimize the Daily Task List so
that it displays only the number of active and completed tasks and provides more
space for you to work. You can switch between views of the Daily Task List by clicking
the Minimize or Expand button on its header.
You can schedule a specific block of time to complete a task by dragging it from the
Daily Task List to your calendar.
▪ On the Outlook Today page, the tasks due today are listed in the Tasks area. (This
page was at one time the “home page” of Outlook.) You display the Outlook Today
page by clicking your email account in the Folder Pane.
The Outlook Today page summarizes your upcoming activities.
