Get your New Year’s Resolutions Moving with TASKS

This article was written by my colleague NRTC Managed Services Admin

How are you staying on top of your New Year’s Resolutions? Did you know that we offer a tasks list app with our email platform?

Using Task Lists

The Tasks feature lets you create to-do lists and manage tasks through to completion. You can add tasks to the default Tasks list, and you can create other task lists to organize your to-do lists by more specific activities, such as by work or personal projects. You can create a new Tasks List and synchronize the tasks from a remote iCal To Do list to the new list.

For a simple task, all you may need to do is create a task from the Content pane. If a task needs to be managed, you can add more details, define a start and due date, set the priority to the task – high, normal, or low, and keep track of the progress and percentage complete.

In the screenshot that follows, three task lists have been created. The tasks list shown in the Content pane is highlighted in blue. The Content pane shows the tasks that are upcoming, due today and past due. along with the status, the percentage of the work completed, and the date the task should be finished.


Views Tasks in a Preview pane

You can enable a Preview pane to view the content of a task without opening the task. The Preview pane can display either at the bottom of the Content pane or on the right. Click View on the Task toolbar to select how to display the Preview pane.

When the Preview pane is at the bottom, the Task list view does not change. When the Preview pane is on the right, the Task list view does not show the status of a task and the percent complete is shown as a progress bar.  

Sorting tasks

You can sort the task list by subject, status, percentage complete, and due date.

In the Task view, select a task list and in the Content pane toolbar, click the heading to sort by.

Printing Tasks

You can print all the tasks in the list or you can select specific tasks to print.

  • To print selected tasks, check the tasks to print and from Print on the toolbar click Print selected task(s).

To print the complete task list folder, select the list in the Overview pane and from Print on the toolbar click Print Task Folder.
