Lesson 17. Using Tasks > Creating Tasks

Creating Tasks

To help keep track of all the things you have to do, you can assign tasks to yourself. For example, if you know you have a presentation to give in two weeks, you can assign a task to yourself, noting all the things you must prepare by that date. To create a task, do the following:

  1. Open your mail database. Choose Create, Task from the menu, or if you're in the To Do view, click the New Task button on the Action bar. The New Task form appears, as shown in Figure 17.1.

  2. Enter a description of the task under Subject.

  3. To set a priority for the task, click High, Medium, or Low (the default is None).

  4. Enter a date in the Due Date box to set a due date for the task or click the Date icon next to the box to select a date from the drop-down calendar.

  5. To establish a start date for the task, enter the date in the Start Date box or click the Date icon next to the box to select a date from the drop-down calendar.

  6. (Optional) In Additional Information, add any information needed to explain the task or how it is to be completed.

  7. (Optional) If you want to add the Task to your Calendar so that the due date appears as an entry, click the Display Task on My Calendar button on the Action bar.

  8. Click the Close button on the Action bar.

  9. When the alert box appears, asking if you want to save the document, choose Yes.

  10. The task appears in your To Do view. Click the To Do button in the Navigator pane to see a list of tasks.
