Hello Experts,

Attached is an image captured in Outlook 2007 Tasks view.  Can someone PLEASE tell me what the difference is between the "Tasks" contained in the "To-Do List" (the one with a red flag to the left), and the "Tasks (1)" (in bold), shown under "My Tasks" in the image?  Also, why is the red flag there?

Thanks!

Hi

Task will give you a list of all task you have and "To-Do List" gives you a list of all uncompleted tasks.

Why it is red?
I am not sure - Maybe you have an over due task or that is just the color they wanted it to be?

Ganesh,

I can't wait to view all of those resources.  Thank you so much for providing them!  That will be very helpful in understanding the Outlook methodology.  I appreciate the thoroughness.


Thank you hutnor,

I was not so concerned as to why it was red, but more to the fact that there was a Flag icon, and not a Task icon (which could be in red to indicate an overdue task).  That's all.  Perhaps Ganesh's resources will tell me.  I just wanted to respond to you both quickly.

I appreciate your prompt reply, it is very, very helpful to have so quickly!

So very fast and helpful from both parties.  I especially appreciate the video reference, because they are easier for me to understand.  But hutnor's answer was succinct so that I knew what was what immediately.  Both were excellent!
