To customize your list in the way that makes the most sense for the way you work, there are several functions available:
The task list offers you a variety of information that you can add or remove from the list in the form of table columns.
To do this, click the right mouse button in the header and click Column selection in the context menu that opens. If you want to add one of the fields to your list, place a check mark at the respective position in the newly appeared window with the possible columns.
To group the tasks according to a certain criterion, drag the field you want to group by into the Grouping field above the column headers.
If you click on the arrow next to the grouping criterion, you can decide whether to sort in ascending or descending order.
Here, too, there is another filter option: If you move the mouse over the grouping criterion, a small filter symbol will appear. If you click on it, you can further narrow down the grouping criterion.
You can additionally sort the task list by clicking on the column header you want to sort by. Click again, then the sort order will change.
You can also format the task list according to rules you define using Conditional Formatting. You can find this feature on the Start tab in the View section. How to best work with conditional formatting is explained in detail in the Conditional Formatting chapter.
