Jotting down digital notes
This short chapter describes some Outlook goodies that were neglected in
the other chapters of this mini-book. It explains how the Tasks window
can help you meet your deadlines and how to be alerted when an activity
is looming, a task deadline is arriving, an e-mail message needs a reply,
or someone in your Contacts folder needs love and attention. Finally, it
explains Outlook’s digital stick ’em notes.
Tasks: Seeing What Needs to Get Done
As shown in Figure 5-1, use the Tasks window to see what needs to be done,
when it’s due, and whether it’s overdue. On this list, due dates clearly show
how smartly the whip is being cracked and how close you are to meeting
or missing deadlines. A gray line appears across tasks that are done. Tasks
that are overdue appear in red. Read on if you want to find out how to enter
a task, attach a file to a task, and manage tasks in the Tasks window.
