Viewing Tasks

8.33. What Are the Different Ways I Can View My Tasks?

Outlook provides 10 default views of your tasks. Table 8-1 lists these default views and gives a short description of each.

Table 8-1. Available Task Views
ViewDescription
Simple ListA basic list of all tasks that displays the subject and due date of the task.
Detailed ListSimilar to the Simple List view, except that it displays extra items of information such as status, percent completed, and categories.
Active TasksDisplays information similar to that in the Detailed List view, but uses a filter to hide tasks that have already been completed or that have been deferred (filters are covered in FAQ 8.39).
Next Seven DaysDisplays the same details as the Detailed List view, but displays only tasks that are due in the next seven days.
Overdue TasksDisplays the same details as the Detailed List view, but displays only tasks that are overdue (whose due date has already passed).
By CategoryDisplays the tasks in groups, based on the categories that the tasks have been assigned to.
AssignmentDisplays only tasks that you assigned to others in the past.
By Person ResponsibleGroups tasks based on who is responsible for them.
Completed TasksDisplays only tasks that are marked as having been completed.
Task TimelineIs completely different from the other views listed. It displays tasks along a timeline so that you can graphically see which tasks overlap and how long each task takes or when a task is due.
