▪ Outlook displays tasks in the Tasks module, in the Daily Task List in the Calendar
module, and on the To-Do Bar, which is available from any Outlook module.
▪ You can organize tasks by grouping them in additional task folders or by assigning
color categories to them.
▪ When you assign tasks, Outlook sends a task request to the designated person, who
can accept or decline the task. If you keep a copy of the assigned task, it is updated
when the person you assigned the task to updates the original.

assigned the task.
▪ A task can have a status of Not Started, Deferred, Waiting, Complete, or the percentage
of the task that has been completed.

recurring task every time you complete the current occurrence.
