MS Outlook Tasks: an introduction

Posted March 29, 2016 By Lorrie

In my experience Outlook is one of the most underutilized of the essential MS Office programs. Tasks usually make their way to the learning curve after email, contacts and calendar. A task is an item that you create in Outlook to track until its completion. It can also be described as an electronic to-do-list.

Unlike a calendar item, tasks remain visible until completion or deletion. They are always on your to-do-list which is visible while in email (enable it on the View tab), calendar (weekly or monthly view), or tasks.
