Using the To-Do Bar
The To-Do Bar is more than just something you can
look at for a quick update. You can click any date
on the calendar to switch to the Calendars folder
in Outlook for that date. And, you can add to-do’s
to the To-Do Bar. For example, to create a to-do
item for an e-mail, drag the e-mail into the
appropriate timeframe on the To-Do Bar. The to-do will
appear both on the To-Do List (when you click the
Tasks button in the Navigation Pane and then click
To-Do List under My Tasks) and on the To-Do Bar.
And, you can right-click the flag of any to-do and
choose Mark Complete to clear it from the To-Do
List and the To-Do Bar.
You can add new tasks directly in the To-Do Bar by
typing in the “Type a new task” text box. If you
want to resize the amount of space allocated
between the calendar appointments and the tasks,
drag the separating bar, seen in Figure 23-21, up or
down until the sections are the size you want.
To minimize the To-Do Bar and move it back to the
right, click the Minimize button. If you want to
completely hide the To-Do Bar from a particular
view, choose View>Layout>To-Do Bar>Off.
Resize the space in the To-Do Bar.
