Calendar and Tasks
Is it possible to have the tasks show up on the calendar?
No. Only beside it.
you can drag a task to the calendar if you need to assign a time to it.

I think I have found in other posts but I want to ask directly just in case
someone else has other info...
Can MSP concatenate each task in a report with its summary tasks? Without
this, I don't know what part of the project each task pertains to. (Example,
does "Buy space" pertain to the April or May set of tasks?) If I add a
breadcrumb to each task in the entry view, not only is this time consuming
but I also can't read the entry view as well as before.
This limitation severly cuts down on the usefulness of the reports for me.

...CRM Task question
I have a question regarding CRM task and Outlook Task on CRM v1.2, here
is the scenario:
"User A uses "CRM Task" on Outlook Sales Client to create a task and
assign to User B
User B updates the task on Outlook only and reply (or assign) back to
Will the updated task (from the Outlook side) be the same updated task
on the CRM if we don't use Online or Offline feature?"
Because what happen is my user (user A) showed me an error message
stating that there is an error synchronized task (from Outlook) to CRM task.
She didn't use synch...Sharing Tasks in the 2007 versions of Project and Outlook
I would like to export and work on my Project 07 tasks in Outlook 07. I am

Could anyone tell me if there is a way of doing this in Microsoft or if
there is an add-in I could purchase.

A long time ago I scheduled a task to load up a certain
utility at 7 am. However, I've just realized it never
gets loaded. I went into Task Scheduler to see what's
going on, and as it opened I get this error:
"An error has occured for task Reminders - owner. Error
message: the specified account name is not valid"
I'm looking at my task and I see that "When running a
task, use the following user account" is set to "RICK

account name. I don't log on to my computer wi...Updating tasks with VBA script
I've built a scheduling tool which uses Access to create the tasks.
Once the tasks are generated, they're sent to Outlook. My problem is
the tasks are grouped in categories and if a due date is changed it
needs to move all the following tasks by x number of days. (My
keyfield ie- 57-41, then 57-42, etc. is stored in the contacts field)
I had planned to first pull the data back to Access to see what dates
changed. Off of that data, I'd delete the following tasks and reinsert
them with the modified dates. I would prefer to do this in Outlook but

...Trapping the close message when sent from the task bar button
Hi, I am using a application that uses a Tray Icon. I need to make it
behave like MSN Messenger. I am almost there and one of my remaining
problem is that I can't see how to trap the "close application" message
that is sent when the user right clicks on the task bar and chooses
"Close", I need to hide my window in the case and I only want to be able
to close my application by right clicking on the tray icon and choose "Exit"
Thanks a lot!
...Completed Tasks in Task View
In the Task view window, I have the tasks sorted by
Category and all of the tasks in each category are sorted
by due date, even the completed tasks. However, I don't
want the completed tasks to show in this screen. How can
I hide them?
Create a filter for that view with the criteria "Complete equals no" -- you
can do this on the Advanced tab of the Filter dialog.

In news:06960...Assigning Task to Queue or User
I have an issue with Assigning a task to a queue or another user. If the
task is created in Sales for Outlook (SFO), the queue option is not available
in the drop down list in the lookup table. The only option is the user. A
reboot of the workstation seems to fix this, but man is this silly or what?
The user is attempting this:
Create a task for an order and assign the task to the receiving queue (all
from within SFO). The queue does not show up to seach from in the Lookup
Records Web Page Dialog. The weird part is that even if you go to CRM Web
Client on the same machine, the qu...Workflow generated task and changed owner
We are using a workflow to inform administration staff about a new generated
order. That works fine and the task will be generated for the right CRM user.
But, if we change the owner of that related order also the task previously
generated by the workflow will be re-assigned to that nre owner. With CRM 3.0
it was working fine (left the task unchanged). With CRM 4.0 the task owner
will be changed unexpected.
The first thougt which comes to me is that it might have something to
do with "Type of behaviour".

I have a row of 8 cells, where the user chooses to fill one of the cells to
indicate a yearly quarter. The user then enters either R,A or G in the next
cell to indicate a status (red, amber or green).
I then want the cell filled to change to the colour indicated by the letter.
My question is - how can I conditionally format the fill dependent upon the
letter (R, A or G)? Because the cell filled isn't a fixed cell I'm not sure
how to approach the conditional formatting.
Any help greatly appreciated.
Assume the cells to be conditionally formatted are A1:A8

...How to sort task due data ascending, tasks w/o dates last?
I have a long task list, most tasks don't have due dates. Some do. I want
my tasks listed with the earliest due task on top, followed by the next
earliest (due date ascending sort order), but I also want those tasks w/o
due dates to come after the task with the latest due date. Problem is in
due date ascending order, tasks w/o dates come first before any dated tasks.
To me this is remarkably silly because who would ever want tasks w/o due
dates to list before tasks w/due dates when sorting by due date?
...Increase Task Name Display Length in My Tasks
I have a suggestion for you...
The My Assginments view limits the Task Name to displaying 50 characters.
That field should not have a limit, or if so, we should be able to change it.
Developer tasks are not necessarily that short and making them click on the
task to see the full name is not user friendly.
This would simplify and streamline the process of reporting hours, not to
mention making looking at the view itself, much more user friendly.
Thank you for your consideration!
