Display multiple months in Outlook 2007's To-Do Bar

Don't let Outlook 2007's default settings hamstring you. If you want to view more than the current month on the To-Do Bar, change the settings.

Outlook 2007's To-Do Bar displays only the current month. That could be just what you want, but if you're like me, you might want a more comprehensive list. Fortunately, you can configure Outlook 2007 to display both the current month and future months. It's up to you.

To change the number of months displayed in the To-Do bar, do the following:

  1. Choose To-Do Bar from the View menu.
  2. Select Options.
  3. In the Show Date Navigator section, enter the number of months you want to display in the Number Of Month Rows option. The limit is 9. If you don't want to display any months at all, uncheck the Show Date Navigator option.
  4. Click OK.
