Create an Outlook task for a workbook

These steps allow you to create a task for yourself. If you want to e-mail a task to someone else, use Microsoft Outlook rather than Microsoft Excel. For more information, see Outlook Help.

  1. Open the workbook for which you want to add the task.
  2. On the Reviewing toolbar (toolbar: A bar with buttons and options that you use to carry out commands. To display a toolbar, press ALT and then SHIFT+F10.), click Create Microsoft Outlook Task Button image.
  3. On the Task tab, enter the subject, dates, status, priority, and reminder for the task.

For more information about task options, see Outlook Help.

  1. Click Save and Close Button image.

 Note   Once you create the task, you can open it in Outlook. For more information, see Outlook Help.
