Stay on top of your To Do Lists by adding either a start date or a due date to individual Tasks. If you have multiple To Do Lists, this helps you to keep track of all of your Tasks. This feature is especially helpful when viewing certain groups of Tasks because you can check at a glance which Tasks are currently on your plate, when to start future Tasks, and see which Tasks are overdue.
Adding a start or due date to Tasks
All of your Tasks can have a start and/or due date. To add start and due dates follow the steps in the image below:
Once you have set dates for your Tasks the status of that Task will appear on the right-hand side of the Task. Each Task date will tell you how long you have until the Task is due, how long the Task is overdue, or when the Task starts.
Each Task will only show one status at a time. This means if you assign a start date and a due date to a Task, the Task will first show the amount of time you have until the Task has been dated to start. After you have passed the date that the Task was assigned to start, the Task will then show the amount of time until the Task is due. See the image below:
Once you have assigned start or due dates to your tasks, you can also view your tasks in the order of their dates by clicking on the "All Tasks" drop-down menu and clicking on either "By Start Date" or "By Due Date." Follow the steps in the image below:
