In Depth Information
The window in which you create or manage a task is a task window. Like the message,
contact record, and calendar item windows, the task window includes the Quick Access Toolbar,
a unique set of commands arranged on the ribbon, and the content area that displays the
A new task window.
When opened from a task window, the Backstage view includes commands related to
managing tasks, such as saving, closing, moving, and printing tasks.
TIP The commands available in the Backstage view of a task window are identical to those
in the Backstage view of an appointment window. For more information, see “Working in
the Calendar module” earlier in this chapter.
Commands on the ribbon of a task window are organized on the four standard tabs: Task,
Insert, Format Text, and Review. The commands you use to create and manage most tasks
are available on the Task tab. Commands include those for managing and assigning the
task, sending the task to a OneNote notebook, and switching among the task pages. This
tab also includes commands for assigning a category or follow-up lag to a task,
preventing other Outlook users from viewing the task details when connected to your account, and
changing the magnification level of the notes pane (not of the task window).
The Insert, Format Text, and Review tabs are identical to those of other item windows. The
commands for inserting, modifying, and formatting elements apply only to content in the
notes pane of the Task window.
