I've been using a customized view for my Tasks that only displays Tasks where the StartDate<=today. Is there a way to display the Tasks on the TO-DO Bar this way, too? When I display the Tasks in the TO-DO Bar I'm getting everything that's not yet completed, even though I can't start on many of the Tasks yet.

Hi, GordonPrince.

Unfortunately, no.  The To-Do bar has extremely limited customization capabilities.

Clearly I stand corrected.  Click the Filter button and go to the Advanced tab.  Click the Field pulldown and select All Task fields > Start Date.  Click the Condition pulldown and select "on or before".  Click in the value field and enter "Today".  OK your way out and you should be in business.
