Outlook tasks and project information
I am working through the system- after spending a weekend day purging my home office (I still have boxes of stuff around, but a clean and working desk now) I found that I got more done at work in the next several days than I would expect to get done (i.e. completed) in a few weeks. After the initial rush, I am trying to settle down and make it into a stable approach for myself.
I have a quick question about any suggestions you might have for using Outlook for tasks and projects. I find that a lot of my tasks are actually projects. I may add some notes to the task, often there is ancillary material like a word document etc that goes along with it in the form of a link. If I complete the task, then I don't have the info for a new task. Two workarounds are simply to copy all of that material into a new task, or erase the subject and replace it with the new task and change dates etc. Or else I can not try to integrate it at all. With a large number of projects, it would be nice to have it flow without effort. Any tricks that you might suggest?
