    tasks ahead of time

    On the Outlook Today page, I would like to be able to see only those tasks which are already underway for a given week or are scheduled to start that week. At the moment, all tasks appear making an unhelpful visual. Am I being stupid? <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>(Outlook 2000, SP1, W98) And whilst we're at it, is there a way I can make "completed tasks" disappear automatically without having to delete them physically?

    the only way to change the view is using the customize button in the upper right corner of the page.

    Thanks MaryJ. I've looked there and can't see anything relevant so I guess the answers are No and No

    Re: tasks ahead of time

    Are you trying to remove tasks from the Outlook today page or the tasks page? On the tasks page, its just a matter of setting a view. Click on View/current view/customize current view and you can filter the view to show only those tasks you want to see. If you click on teh Filter button, go to the advanced tab and find where it says Define more criteria, then select the completed field and ensure the value of the field is set to No, this will only display tasks that are outstanding.

    Hope this helps

    Re: tasks ahead of time

    Sorry my first question rather ran on into the second didn't it! We use Outlook today as an instant guide each morning and find that all tasks appear here, even those whose start date is not for some weeks. It makes a hell of a long list and I just wondered if I could alter it. I have already changed the "tasks" page to view what we want but its just a silly irritation with Outlook today - wondered if I'd missed something. Sounds like its not possible - unless anyone knows different!
