Managing Recurring Tasks
Deleting a task
The really gratifying part about tasks is getting rid of them, preferably by
completing the tasks you entered. You may also delete a task you changed
your mind about. Of course, nothing is stopping you from deleting tasks
you just don’t want to bother with; this version of Outlook can’t really tell
whether you’ve actually completed your tasks. (Rumor has it that the next
version of Outlook will know whether you’ve finished your tasks and report
to Santa. So don’t be naughty!)
To delete a task, follow these steps:
1. Select the task.
2. Click the Delete button in the Ribbon.
Alternatively, you can press Ctrl+D or press the Delete key on your
keyboard. Poof! Your task is gone.
Managing Recurring Tasks
Lots of tasks crop up on a regular basis. You know how it goes — same stuff,
different day. To save you the effort of entering a task, such as a monthly
sales report or a quarterly tax payment, over and over again, just set it up as
a recurring task. Outlook can then remind you whenever it’s that time again.
To create a recurring task, follow these steps:
1. Open the task by double-clicking it.
The Task form appears.
2. Click the Recurrence button on the Task Form toolbar (or press
The Task Recurrence dialog box appears (see Figure 9-10).
3. Choose the Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or Yearly option to specify how
often the appointment occurs.
Each option — Daily, Weekly, Monthly or Yearly — offers you choices
for when the task recurs. For example, a daily recurring task can be set
to recur every day, every five days, or whatever. A monthly recurring
task can be set to recur on a certain day of the month, such as the 15th
of each month or on the second Friday of every month.
4. In the Recur Every box, specify how often the appointment recurs,
such as every third day or the first Monday of each month.
