Outlook 2007: Creating a Task

Outlook 2007: Creating a Task

A task in Outlook is just an electronic item on a To-Do list. And, you can get just as much satisfaction from marking a task complete in Outlook as you probably do from crossing an item off a paper To-Do list.

The nice thing about the Outlook To-Do list is that in addition to keeping track of what needs to be done, it also keeps track of task due dates and priority levels. And, Outlook reminds you when certain tasks are due (or overdue).
