Outlook 2007: Making the To-Do Bar Show Tasks from PST File

Posted November 29, 2006 by Rob Rogers in Microsoft Outlook

By default, Outlook 2007 only shows the tasks that are located in the main mailbox on the To-Do Bar. If you have tasks located in a PST file and want them to show up as well, follow this tech-recipe:


1. In the Navigation Pane, right-click on the personal folder containing the tasks.

2. Select Properties.

3. Check the Display reminders and tasks from this folder in the To-Do Bar checkbox.

4. Click OK.

    I do not have the Display reminders and tasks from this folder in the To-Do Bar in properties of my Personal Folder but I have it on my Archive Folders.

    What else can I do to make the flagged items show to my To-Do-Bar?
