7 ways to save time with event viewer


Filters and Custom Views are great features, but they are designed for discovering an event after it has already happened. If you want to know exactly when an event occurs, you can save yourself time by attaching a task to an event.

While the Filter or Custom View is active, select the Attach Task To This Event in the Action panel. When you see the Create Basic Task Wizard dialog box, just give it a name and description and click Next.
