These include panes that you see by default, like the Navigation pane and others that you might not be familiar with, like the To-Do and People panes.A pane is a section of a window that provides the user with additional information or quick access to features commonly used in a software program, and its common terminology in programming and user interface design.Why the To-Do pane is labeled as To-Do Bar we have no idea, as Microsoft themselves call it a pane in their documentation.They all exist in the To-Do pane, which sits in the right-hand side of Outlook.
Weve added them in the order in which they appear in the menuCalendar, People, Tasksbut if we remove Calendar by clicking View To-Do Bar Calendar, and then add it in again, it will appear at the bottom under Tasks.
These just display your upcoming appointments and your favorite contacts, respectively.
The People item lets you search your contacts, but thats it.
In fact, it acts like a regular email folder, which means you can customize it just like any other folder.
By default, your tasks are arranged by Due Date in ascending order.
These options are three standard filter options in a mail folder and have no use in your Tasks.
You can also enable Show in Groups, which toggles between showing your tasks in groups (the default) and showing them in a simple list.
You can always hit the Reset Current View button to get back to the default view if you make changes youre not happy with.
Outlook is definitely a productivity app, not just a mail client, and the To-Do pane is an integral part of that.
