Get even MORE organized with Outlook Tasks!

Customize View of TasksA year ago I got rid of all the paper on my desk and every day it's a wonderful sight in the morning to see a clear desk!  Microsoft Outlook "Tasks" are a great way to stay organized, and by changing the font, size and color of overdue tasks, you can get even more organized! 

Changing the appearance of overdue tasks can help them stand out more.  In Outlook 2010, select "Tasks" from the navigation bar.  In the "View" tab, select "View Settings".  In the "Advanced View Settings" pick "Conditional Formatting".  When you highlight "overdue tasks" you can pick any font you want to make the tasks pop out on your list.  If red is too harsh and scolding, pick something else that works for you!

We strongly advise clients to get more from the technology you already have.  When you get a few free minutes, explore the settings that will work for youl
