Want to combine the roll-over, disappear-when-complete features of the task list with the drag-and-drop ease of the Checklist? All you need is one little key. Here's how ...

1. Set up your Home View to show a calendar day view panel that displays the task list and another panel that displays your mailbox (this may be the unread messages panel, the recent activity panel, or your own custom panel).*

2. While holding the CTRL button, select and drag and drop the message you?d like to become a task to the task list part of your calendar.

3. In the task window that appears, enter a start date, a due date, and a priority.

4. Click Post.
