Keeping track of your Tasks with Evolution

If you like to be organised and to keep track of the tasks that you need to complete, then Linux allows you to do this in many different ways using various applications. In this section we'll cover Evolution.

You can create a task in Evolution by clicking on the "Tasks" icon (Tasks Icon) in the main window. The task pane will display:

Type in the name or a short description of your task, then press ENTER:

Entering a New Task in Evolution

The task will then move down to the lower pane of the screen:

Double click the newly created task and a dialogue box will open up; type in all the information you wish to store about the task. If you would like to assign one or more categories to your task, click:

View → Categories

Check (tick) the categories you wish to assign to this task and then click "OK":

Assign Categories to the Task

To add details about the progress of you task, select:

Options → Status Details

A dialogue box will display where you can enter details like the current state of the task, the percentage completed, priority, etc; click "OK" once completed:

When you have entered all the data you require, click on the save icon in the top left of the dialogue:

The dialogue box will close and a summary of the selected task is now shown in the bottom pane:
