Customer Question
Good evening, Pear.l I...

Good evening, Pear.l I have an Outlook question please. What is the difference in both purpose and function between the Task List and the To-Do List? How should a friendly user use them...both or one or the other? Thank you very much. Mike Wuergler, Johns Creek, GA

Quite a while as I am uncertain of the difference in usage.

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

No

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

Here is the difference:

Tasks are items you create from scratch. They are not tied to an email message and you can add important details to your task. In the new task window, you can add details such as a start date, due date, reminder, and priority. You are also able to assign tasks to others to add to their task list, integrate your task list with OneNote, and send a status report update.

To-Dos are linked to emails. So, when you flag an email it will be automatically added to the To-Do list, to remind you to do something such as send a reply or attend a meeting mentioned in the email.

Overall, the main difference is To-Do's are linked to emails while Tasks are independent.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
