Are you looking for a quick and easy way to share a task with a colleague, but are not sure how to do so?

Microsoft Outlook allows you to create and share tasks just as easily as setting up a new meeting within your calendar.

At the bottom of Outlook Calendar, you can create tasks by double-clicking in the free space.

To share a task, simply double-click on the task, and select the Assign Task tab to share it with others by adding them the same way as email.

You and your colleagues can also use the Send Status Report tab to keep everyone updated on your task progress.

Finally, you can Mark Complete when the task is done. This will display a checkmark beside the task under your calendar.
