Much To-Do About Nothing
Most contact management programs have a Task List that holds the myriad
tasks that you need to remember not to forget. Office Live has its own version
of the Task List, which is called the To-Do list. The To-Do list enables you to
keep track of simple tasks or To-Dos that you and your team need to complete.
Chapter 14 talks about projects, which are major undertakings that have so
many To-Dos associated with them that they have to be tied together in one
great big project.
You can create custom views of the To-Do list. You can also include the To-Do
list on the Time Manager dashboard so that you can review it.
So why are you sitting around reading? It’s time to take a few of the To-Dos
you have and get to them:
1. Click Business Applications on the Navigation bar, and then click
The Time Manager dashboard opens.
2. Click the To-Do tab.
As expected, the To-Do tab opens with a loud Ta-da (just kidding), as
shown in Figure 13-5.
3. Click the New icon.
The To-Do – New Item page opens. Because To-Dos are short little tasks,
this is a relatively short little form.
4. Fill in the desired pieces of information.
There is only one required field — the Task Name. Here’s a rundown of
the various To-Do fields:
• Title: Add a word or phrase that identifies the task.
• Priority: Choose a priority of High, Medium, or Low.
• To-Do Status: Set the current status as Not Started, In Progress,
Completed, Deferred, or Waiting on Someone Else. You’ll want to go
back and edit the To-Do at a later date; hopefully you’ll be
changing the status to Completed.
