So far in this chapter, we’ve been working in the To-Do List folder of the Tasks module, which
displays both tasks and lagged messages. When you prefer to work with only task items,
you can do so in the Tasks folder. In each folder, you can select a view and an arrangement
of the folder content. The view filters the content and the arrangement orders the filtered
Outlook includes 11 built-in views, which are available in the Change View gallery; you can
access this gallery from the Current View group on the Home tab or on the View tab.
By using the commands below the gallery, you can modify the current
view, create a new view, or apply the view to other task folders.
The available views include Active, Assigned, Completed, Detailed, Next 7 Days, Overdue,
Prioritized, Server Tasks, Simple List, Today, and To-Do List. Detailed view displays all active
and completed items in list format; most of the other views display only the items
corresponding to the view name (for example, Active view displays only the active items in the
folder and Completed view displays only the completed items).
The default view for the To-Do List folder is (somewhat confusingly) To-Do List view; this
view displays a simple item list grouped by the selected arrangement, with the Reading
Pane open on the right. The Reading Pane is not open by default in the other views. If
you want, you can display it at the bottom of the task list so that you don’t lose horizontal
screen space and obscure task details.
