5.2 Understanding the Tasklist Folder

The Tasklist folder is a system folder that is used to keep track of GroupWise tasks and other items that require action. Think of it as a master list of all your tasks.

When you post or accept a task, it automatically appears in the Tasklist folder. In addition, any item type (mail, appointment, task, reminder note, phone message) can be placed in the Tasklist folder. For example, you can place an email in the Tasklist folder to remind yourself that you need to act on it.

NOTE:The Tasklist replaces the Checklist folder in previous versions of GroupWise. Checklist items appear in the Tasklist folder, but are not converted to tasks.

Items in the Tasklist folder do not always appear on the Calendar. Only items with a due date appear on the Calendar. If you want an item in the Tasklist folder to appear on your Calendar, you must assign that item a due date, as explained in Section 5.4.4, Assigning a Due Date to a Tasklist Item.
