  • Outlook 2007

    I just upgraded my laptop and got Outlook 2007 in the bargain. Is there a paper on how to set it up or should I use the Outlook 2003 setup instructions?

    Outlook 2007

    I wish I could help, but I have Outlook 2007 also and just tried setting up my tasks list according to the GTD and Outlook book. Everything seemed to work fine, but the categories aren't showing as pictured on page 16, with @Agendas on top, etc. If I choose the view "Detailed list," however, it will show the category of each task on the far right. Not as helpful as shown in the book. Anyone know a way around this or what I may have done wrong?

      Outlook 2007 Tasks View

      I figured this out a couple of weeks ago. When you click the Tasks bar and go to the default tasks view, you are actually looking at the "To Do List", a new view of tasks in 2007. If you look at the nav bar on the left, under "My Tasks" you will see one or more other views...choose the one that just says "Tasks" and then under that all of the GTD views will appear.

      Yes, you can now sigh with relief...I know I did!

        Is there still no update of the "GTD and Outlook"-Pdf-file from David Allen, with the new possibilities of Outlook 2007?

          The problem I'm having is that every time I open Outlook it defaults back to the "to do list" instead of the "tasks" with GTD views. How do I resolve this?

            just...

            Just add an extra filter for the "To-do list":

            "In Folder" is exactly "Tasks"

            Then the task views you created will be applied to only the items in the task list and the rest (flagged items) are filtered away.

            This way it doesnt matter if you are using the Task list or the "To-do list"...
