Chapter 14. Working with Tasks > Using Views to Manage Tasks

Using Views to Manage Tasks

Tasks can save you time and help organize a busy day. However, simply creating tasks does not ensure that you'll complete the task or even that you'll be able to find it again after you've created it. You can use different views within the Tasks folder to organize and manipulate your tasks. There are three main types of views you'll use in the Tasks folder: Table, Timeline, and Day/Week/Month views.

  • Table— A Table view shows various fields in a row and column format, much like Microsoft Excel. You can click on a column heading to sort by that field.

  • Timeline— A Timeline view shows each task as a line representing the duration of the task (start date through due date). This is a visual view intended to show you when various tasks overlap in their start and end dates.

  • Day/Week/Month— You can use a Calendar view (Day/Week/Month) with the Tasks folder as well. This type of view shows all of your tasks on the day they're due.
