Organizing Tasks

As with other types of items in Outlook, you can use folders and categories—keywords or phrases associated with an Outlook item—to organize tasks. For example, if you are a supervisor, you can keep separate folders for each employee's key tasks or you can categorize tasks according to the projects you are working on. To organize your tasks using folders, you can use the Ways To Organize Tasks pane or you can drag the task to the folder in the Navigation pane. You can assign a category to a task in the Tasks folder or by using the Ways To Organize Tasks pane. You can select from one of the built-in categories, or you can define a new category to suit your needs.
