Viewing Your Tasks
Outlook comes with several ways to view your Task list and enables you to
invent and save as many custom views as you like. The views that come with
Outlook take you a long way when you know how to use them.
To change the view of your tasks, click the name of one of the following views
from the Current View list in the Navigation pane:
Detailed view is a little more chock-full of the fiddly bits than the Simple
List view. It’s really the same information, plus the status of the tasks,
the percentage of each task complete, and whatever categories you may
have assigned to your tasks.
Simple List view presents just the facts — the names you gave each
task and the due date you assigned (if you assigned one). The Simple
List view makes it easy to add new tasks and mark old ones complete.
However, you won’t see any extra information. If you want details . . .
To-Do List view includes all the tasks you’ve entered as well as any
flagged e-mails that show up in the To-Do bar. The other Task List views
only show the items you’ve added directly to the Task list.
Prioritized view groups your tasks according to the priority that you’ve
assigned to each one (see Figure 9-14). That way, you know what’s
important as well as what’s urgent.
Active view shows you only the tasks you haven’t finished yet. After you
mark a task complete — zap! Completed tasks vanish from the Active
view, which helps keep you focused on the tasks remaining to be done.
