Outlook provides some powerful tools for keeping track of your tasks. Though a task does not have
a specific period of time associated with it (unlike an appointment), it can have a due date. By listing
your tasks and optionally reminding you of when they are due, Outlook can greatly reduce the
chance that you’ll forget to do something important. Outlook even lets you assign tasks to other
people and track their progress, a really valuable tool for a manager or team leader.
