Viewing Tasks

As in any Outlook folder, you can change how you view tasks in the list. When you have Tasks selected in the Navigation pane, a Current View pane is provided that gives you easy access to the different views for your tasks. You can also select the different views using the Current View drop-down list in the Standard toolbar. By default, the Tasks folder displays tasks in a Simple List view. Following is a description of the views you can use to display the Tasks folder:

  • Simple List— Lists the tasks, completed check box, subject, and due date.

  • Detailed List— Displays the tasks, priority, subject, status, percent complete, and categories.

  • Active Tasks— Displays the same information as the detailed list but doesn't show any completed tasks.

  • Next Seven Days— Displays only those tasks you've scheduled for the next seven days, including completed tasks.

  • Overdue Tasks— Shows a list of tasks that are past due.

  • By Category— Displays tasks by category; click the button representing the category you want to view.

  • Assignment— Lists tasks assigned to you by others.

  • By Person Responsible— Lists tasks grouped by the person who assigned the tasks.

  • Completed Tasks— Lists only those tasks completed, along with their due dates and completion dates.

  • Task Timeline— Uses the Timeline view to display tasks by day, week, or month. Figure 14.5 shows the tasks assigned within one week.
