Dispatching Tasks in a Flash
1. Click the View tab on the Ribbon.
2. Click the To-Do bar button.
3. Click Tasks.
A strip will appear on the right side of your screen, showing a list of
tasks on your schedule (see Figure 3-1).
4. Drag an e-mail message to that strip.
A new line appears with the title of that e-mail listed as a task. At the
same time, a little red flag appears on your e-mail message to show that
you plan to get back to that item and take it on as a task.
The Outlook Calendar features an optional strip at the bottom called the
Daily Task List that lets you drag each task to a particular day, which helps
you deal with the fact that many tasks take time. When your schedule is
crowded and your e-mail Inbox is cluttered, knowing what you need to do
isn’t enough — you also need to figure out when you’ll have time to do it.
