Chapter 15. Organizing with Microsoft Outlook > Working with Tasks and Notes

Working with Tasks and Notes

Does your to-do list grow during the day? Do things fall off the list accidentally, leaving unfinished details that are sure to catch up with you later? Do you have trouble reminding yourself about what you wanted to remember? Outlook includes two more features—Tasks and Notes—that can help you capture details that are in danger of falling through the cracks. Tasks enables you to reduce your larger projects into a series of manageable steps, while Notes helps you remember those great ideas that occur to you as you’re doing a project.

First Tasks First

My mother had lists for everything. Her morning list began with “Make coffee” and ended with “Defrost chicken for dinner.” I must admit that I’m not half the organizer my mother is—but, luckily, I know how to use Outlook’s Task feature. I can track projects and people and personal events. And if you’re on the road to better organization, Tasks can help you get that sense of accomplishment at the end of the day.
