Microsoft Outlook Tasks

Q: Microsoft Outlook Tasks

I would like to create my own tasks, as thought my manager created the task and assigned it to me. That way he would get updates on what I am doing but I don't have to nag him to create a task. It should also send him messages when the task is updated.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have an issue with one user where task can't be added to Outlook 2003 Tasks.
I was able to create a subfolder in it and I'm successful in adding tasks to that subfolder, but not in the main Tasks folder.

When ever I try adding a task, I get the following message:
"Please save the task order by clicking Save Task Order on the Actions menu in the "Tasks" folder. The view must not be filtered or grouped for Save Task Order to be available. Could not coplete the operation. One or more parameter values are not valid"

I've gone through every possible setting. I went as far as uninstalling and reinstalling Office and recreating the users Outlook profile on the PC.

Any other suggestions?

TIA

Dear Sir,

I would appreciate any info to resolve task scheduler overload, obsolete,verbose, non-applicable for my system.. hammering my system with code numbers,letters which mean jack to me.

Please help me to find out task codes so I know what is what. I am P.O. and would just like to clean up my daughters laptop so she can actually use it. Side note...

Hello,

I am willing to try and help you, however, I cannot make much sense of your post. Can you just help me here please? From what I can make out, you are experiencing Windows Updates errors, and non-applicable updates, which are normal occasionally, but not in excess. You are also experiencing errors at startup and during useage. Can you please tell me exactly what is happening, and ideally some of the error messages (I appreciate that there may be too many to tell me, ignore all of the very similar ones for now) and once I know exactly what is going on, I may be able to help.

Thanks very much!

Something was perplexing me lately. I would periodically open up my laptop lid in the morning only to find my computer very warm and actually running.

So it seems that after the DragonSvc kicks in, the computer wakes up and does not go back to sleep. As such, other programs that were suspended in sleep are awake and begin running processes.

I also noticed: Office ClickToRun Service Monitor - At 4:00 AM every day
First of all, I don't have any need for Dragon Naturally Speaking. I disabled the startup of Dragon Services and just don't use this software.

I am using Outlook 2003 and I have a contractor using Outlook 2002. I have created many tasks for him in Outlook 2003 and assigned them to his email address. This makes them unable to be edited from my end. When he sends them back to me they show up as an email that is unable to be opened and I cannot do anything with the tasks since the last action I did was to assign it to him, and I no longer have control over the task from my end. The reading pane says "this item cannot be displayed in the reading pane. Open the item to read its contents" but I cannot open it, it does nothing when I double click or right-click and select Open.

We are both on the same POP3 server but we do not have Exchange. I am not sure if this is even supposed to work like this, but can anyone tell me whether I should be able to reliably assign and receive updates and completions for Tasks in Outlook? And, is this inter operable between Outlook 2002 and 2003?

Somehow my list of tasks has disappeared from the task view in MS Outlook 2003. The weird thing is there are some tasks showing, but they are very out of date. I suspect the ones that are showing are those associated with my archive .pst folder, as the most task recent item happens to have a date very close to the date of the latest email message in the archive .pst file.

Another clue - I was able to see the missing tasks briefly, when I somehow was able to get the folder "Tasks in personal folders" to show up in the navigation pane in the Outlook Task view. But now it has disappeared, and all I have is a single folder (?) in the navigation pane labelled tasks.

One other clue - there do appear to be tasks in both my outlook.pst file and my archive.pst file. When I right-click on the "Personal Folders" icon in the "All Mail Folders" box, and then hit the "folder size..." button, it comes up and says I have 143K worth of tasks in that folder (77K of tasks in the archives folders). But for the life of me I can't seem to find out how to view them all.

I tried pstscan to repair my outlook.pst file, but that didn't seem to do anything.

Can anyone suggest a way to get them back in view?

Thanks!

I used to enjoy using the outlook to sync tasks with other users over the internet. It appears this feature is no longer supported on newer versions so I have been hunting for an online version. I down loaded this software call 4Teams. It turns out that you cannot do recuring tasks, so I removed it. Afterwards my outlook was only opening every other time. I reinstall/repaired it with the install disk. Still the program showed the additional 4-team button on the toolbar. And I was still having problems. So I totally reinstalled it, and it still showed up. Now it won't open at all.

By the way, when I use Ctrl-Alt-Del to stop it after it locks up for several minutes trying to load, I see two outlook items, one dim the other normal in the end program screen.

I have sent a support reuest to 4-teams but have not heard back from them.

Hi,
I am running Outlook 2000 on both my laptop and desktop computers. Ultimately I would like to be able to sychronize the information on both..on a continuous basis. In other words, sometimes I will be checking email from the laptop, other times from the desktop. At this point, I know of no way to keep the information straight, so that it is always in synch. Is this possible in an environment without an exchange server?

What I am currently doing is using the desktop primarily, then copying the files onto the laptop. I am not accessing or sending emails from outlook on the laptop. When I need to send emails from the laptop, I do it from the web interface provided by my ISP.
 

A:Tips on synchronizing Outlook Email and Tasks

You can, but its a bit of a hack (or very specific configuration) that can be accomplished if you have a cerrtain type of mail service, most of which are a monthly fee but Gmail and now I believe Yahoo (but you'd have to have the paid account), have what is called IMAP email (Hotmail (or Live! Mail) does the same thing though its more proprietary) that basically keeps all the email online the same as always but it also syncs with whatever desktop client logs in and is configured for IMAP mail so no matter what system you checked mail with, you'd have syncronous mail.

The cost? $0 if you use Gmail. You can find more information about configuration from within a gmail account under settings>Forwarding and POP/IMAP. You should even be able to forward your email from your current account to Gmail if its not already and allow the continued use of your current email address as well.

I think its very kool and I'm gradually trying to get all my accounts there or Windows Live! Mail is working pretty good for me also since I have mostly Yahoo and Hotmail accounts already.

Hello:
I just upgraded from Outlook 2000 to 2003. I use the task items and highly depend on sorting within my categories. In 2000 I can view my task items by category, then click the header to sort within those categories.

Since the upgrade, I can of course view in categories, but I can not sort within the category. When I try to sort by clicking the headings it no longer keeps my categories together. Is there a way to sort with-IN a category or did MS take that feature away?

Any ideas if this feature is no longer available?

We use Outlook to manage in-house tasks. Customers send in problems to a specific mailbox, someone monitoring that mailbox generates a task using that email and assigns the task to another user to handle it. The second user accepts the task, adds whatever work they do, and finally sets the status as Complete, which closes it on their end and sends an update to the monitored mailbox for closing it there.

95% of the time, this works flawlessly.

Sometimes the second user goes through all the motions and closes out the task, but the monitored mailbox task is never updated correctly to show it as closed. This leads to a minor amount of tail-chasing and finger wagging as people get confused and wonder why something is still showing as active.

The problem seems completely random - it's not just a single user, it's happened to numerous users. It won't all happen at once, but maybe 1-2 times a week that the process breaks down. All of my testing has everything working correctly.

My inclination is some type of user error, but all parties insist that they always do everything the same way and couldn't possibly be causing problems. A manager escalated the issue to the company president and in turn the issue became my issue and I need to find a resolution.

I'm new to figuring out Tasks (etc) in Outlook 2003 SP2.

On Thursday 7/27/06 I entered a Task in the morning and gave it a Start date of 8/1/06 and a Due date of 8/3/06.

I then went into Calendar and told it to also show me TaskPad (View - TaskPad) and to show the TaskPad's next seven days of items (View -TaskPad View - Show Tasks for Next Seven Days) the Task shows up.

I then went to Tasks and selected Simple or Detailed view and the Task also showed up there.

But if, still in Tasks, I selected "Next Seven Days" it did NOT show up.

What's going with that?

Then, later in the same day, I entered a new Task, giving it a Start date and a due date of Today -- 7/27/06. But when I went into Tasks and chose to show Active it did two things that were really weird:

1. It did not show the Task has Start and Due dates of today. 2. It did show the Task that has a Start date of 8/1/06 and a Due date of 8/3/06 (it's Reminder is also 8/3/06). (Note that when I choose to show Next Seven Days this one still fails to show up, which it seems it should do.)

On more experimenting with that Task with a Start and Due date of today that didn't show up in Active after I created it, well, once I went in and changed the Start date to yesterday, closed it (which resulted in it showing up in Active, in red), and then re-opened it and changed the Start date back to today, then it DID show up under Active. But why didn't it show up under Active when I... Read more

A:Outlook Tasks date filters acting very weird

Okay, sorry... upon more experimenting I'm learning the quirks of the program:

1. Next Seven Days is really today and the next six days, so 8/3/06 was no included.

2. TaskPad in Calendar defines and treats Views very differently than Tasks does.

3. Active shows everything but Deferred so I'll "assume" I accidentally had that selected as the reason why a Due date of today didn't show in Active (I "hope").

I have two mailboxes added on Outlook 2010 but I only want to view the tasks for my personal account - not for the secondary shared account which I monitor as there are so many of them.

This seems to be the way to do it: How to filter out flagged emails from a specific account in Outlook 2010's task list - Super User
but it just doesn't work. It either removes all or none entries from both mailboxes.

Has anyone managed to get this to work successfully?

I am trying to print up my task list in outlook 2002. I would like to print it up using the memo style as opposed to the table style. The problem is it won't let me print multiple items on one page. It has the print each item on a separate page checked and shaded so I can't uncheck it. Does anyone know why this is or how I can get around it. The table view doesn't have the detail I need like the time spent. To do each one on a separate sheet is prohibitively wasteful and time consuming.

Hi Folks,
I found the following thread:
http://forums.techguy.org/business-applications/541487-merge-excel-dates-into-outlook.html

At best I am capable of copy pasting code - and I guess I'm slightly failing at that even.
I simply wish to be able to update an excel with dates of future tasks, in a particular column, and have these automatically appear as tasks on a particular date in calendar. Ideally column a (name of task) and column F (date in format 1.1.1.) would both be incorporated into the task, which would be allocated to date X in calendar.
I am using Outlook version 14.0.4734.1000

I have associated with Outlook 14.0 object library already. This is what i have so far (the first line is incorrect, presumably amongst others):
Code:

Sub ExportAppointmentsToOutlook(14.0)
Dim olApp As Outlook.Application
Dim olApt As AppointmentItem
Dim blnCreated As Boolean

'Read the table with appointments:
Dim arrAppt() As Variant, i As Long
arrAppt = Range("A2", Cells(Rows.Count, "F").End(xlUp)).Value
On Error Resume Next
Set olApp = GetObject(, "Outlook.Application")
If olApp Is Nothing Then
Set olApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
blnCreated = True
Err.Clear
Else
blnCreated = False
End If
On Error GoTo 0
'Create the outlook item for the table entries:

' Row 3 = endtime
