Completing Tasks

Post by gaddy12441 » Sun Aug 03, 2014 2:52 pm

I'd like to be able to see a difference for completed tasks in the calendar view so I went to the task default setup and for completed tasks changed the text color and background to gray and the font size to Arial 7 from Arial 9. When I complete a task, the background darkens but the text does not turn grey(it had been white) nor does the font size reduce down to Arial 8.
Anyone have any ideas about this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi gaddy12441, on the "View" menu, click "Color Events Using -> Calendar Colors". Next, open the Calendar Properties window for your tasks calendar, where different appearances can be specified for overdue, upcoming, and completed tasks. Click the "Completed" tab and then adjust the text color and size as needed. After clicking the OK button, your completed tasks should update to match the specified appearance.

See the page linked below for more details: ... indow.html

Note, I'm assuming you are dealing with tasks and not events. There's no mechanism (yet) to change the appearance of completed events, only tasks.
