  • Printing outlook tasks one category per page

    Hi There,

    Does anyone know a way I can print outlook tasks so that each category prints on a separate page? I have searched the web and found nothing so far.

    I currently have the task list as 'master list' with just the uncompleted tasks and the category showing. The list is sorted by category.

    When I print I get four pages of tasks with '.projects' burried in the middle - ideally I would like to print the lot so that @computer is on a separate sheet of paper from @calls - then I can look at a list just for the context I am in without the distraction of the stuff above and below it.

    I could put a filter on the list to a single category and then print, but that is very time consuming - it does split out .projects from action items though

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Phil

    Go to the By Category View in Tasks. Collapse everything but the category you want to print. File>Print. Do that for each one.

    Cheers,

      Before you print, make sure you've selected the category "bar" that you want to print by clicking it (CTRL+click if you want multiple categories). Selected categories will have the "highlight" color on them. On the print dialog, choose "Print only selected rows". Do a print preview to make sure you'll get the desired results.

        Thanks for the Control-Click tip, it helps a bit.

        Ideally I'm looking for something that prints the lot, with a page break between each category.

        I guess it will have to be a macro or something like that

        Regards

        Phil

          Hello, I tried to do something similar but never came up with a solution. I think that in order to limit the number of clicks, you could create a custom view in tasks for each category. You would then only have to click on tasks then each view in turn followed by the print button.
