GTD and Outlook 2007
I purchased the whitepaper called "GTD and Outlook 2007" because, well, I use both. New to GTD, long-time Outlook user. I am struggling with a couple of things, however, and would appreciate any thoughts/advice:
1) In the To-Do Bar, if I change the sort to Categories per the suggestion, I'm not sure how to handle weekly recurring tasks. When I mark one complete, it re-generates the next week's task, but it shows up in the same category with the same name. I don't have a grasp on putting tasks as all-day events on the calendar yet and not sure I want to do that exactly. Any suggestions?
2) Also in the To-Do Bar, it is suggested to remove the "Flag Status" and add "Complete". However, clicking on the check-box for "Complete" does not mark the task as done for me, so I end up opening the task which is annoying. Is this how Outlook is supposed to behave, or am I missing something?
That is all for now, but I am sure I will have more questions as I try to implement the suggestions in the paper (which is great, and well worth the $10, by the way).
