Everyone has work they need to get done. Some of the tasks may come from various projects you’re working on, some tasks may come from work you’ve captured in Outlook, and some tasks may just be things you know you need to do, but that you don’t have tracked anywhere else.
Your personal site includes a My Tasks page, where you can view all of these things that you need to get done in one convenient place. It pulls together tasks from various task lists on SharePoint sites, and, if you use them, task lists in Outlook and Project Web App. You can even add personal tasks that only you can see (in case you need a reminder to pick up your dry cleaning or make a dinner reservation!).
To get to your My Tasks page, click Newsfeed at the top of a SharePoint site, and then click Tasks on the Quick Launch.
From here, you can create a new task and highlight your most important tasks.
As you look through your task list, you may want to organize your tasks, or change views on the My Tasks page. You can also change the appearance of your timeline, and choose which tasks you want to include on your timeline.
When work on a task is finished, you can mark a task as complete on your personal site, or, if the task comes from a project that is being managed in Project Web App, you may want to submit a timesheet or task status report on the task.
Finally, if the default settings for the My Tasks page aren’t set quite right for how you use your personal site, you can change settings for the My Tasks page.
