An open item displays assigned categories just below the ribbon.
Organizing Items by Category
Each Outlook view — Mail, Contacts, Tasks, and so on — gives you the option of organizing the
items in various ways. One of these options is to organize the view by category. Using the Task
view for an example (other views work in much the same way), you can see in Figure 17.6 that the
default organization is by due date — which makes sense for tasks. But you may want to organize
them by category. You do so by selecting Current View from the View menu and then selecting By
Category from the next menu. The resulting display is shown in Figure 17.7. If you have any items
not assigned a category, they will have their own group.
