I don’t think there is much that is more satisfying than crossing things off a to-do list. The To-Do Bar in Outlook 2007 can help you automatically create a to-do list and provide you with a few options for getting that satisfied feeling after you’ve wrapped up a task or followed up on an e-mail.
If you haven’t made use of the new To-Do Bar yet, now’s the time to take a look. Back in June 2007, Outlook program manager Jed Brown blogged about this handy new feature; he provides a great background on how to use and customize the To-Do Bar.
Among Outlook 2007 users however, a question continues to arise: ”How do I remove items on the To-Do Bar?” There are a few different options available, and some people are understandably cautious after they find, for example, that choosing to delete a message from their To-Do Bar deletes it from their Outlook Inbox (or other folders) too.
Before removing an item from the To-Do Bar task list, decide if you want to have a record of it. Then you have three options for dealing with the item (in order of destructiveness):
The marking the item complete leaves you with a record of the item having been a task; clearing the flag removes the history of the item having been a task, but leaves the item; and deleting the item removes it completely.
How to remove an item from the To-Do Bar task list
How to see your completed tasks
If you want to see all of your completed items, just switch over to the Calendar and look at the Daily Task List. It shows all of the tasks completed on a given day. (For more on the Daily Task List, see Owen Braun’s Post.)
I hope that this clarifies removing items from the To-Do Bar. You deserve the satisfaction of crossing tasks off of your to-do list, the peace of mind of keeping track of important issues and not worrying about losing the history of all that you have accomplished.

I could ramble off my love of the to do bar all day long, but would have to make one tiny complaint... once it is marked complete, I can never find it again. At work I have a ton of tasks, some of them build up for a very long time, and on more than one occasion, I have marked one complete by accident (clicking twice, for instance, would mark one item, and the one below it complete) many times. Pretty-please, can we get a "completed tasks" list in the calendar view during SP2? Just one users 2 cents.
The To Do Bar is by far my favorite feature in Outlook 2007. That said, I'd like to take a moment to offer a suggestion for the Outlook To Do Bar (for Service Pack 2, perhaps?). It's already possible to create tasks quickly using the To Do bar, but why not calendar appointments? My thoughts: 1. Have the option to RIGHT CLICK on the calendar day and have a selection of New Appointment. 2. Have a Task List-esque entry field that automatically prompts for Date/Time when you press Enter (along with an "Advanced Options" that opens the full appointment window). 3. Be able to Double-Click a blank space on the "Upcoming Appointments" list to open the "New Appointment" window. Any/All of these solutions would be great improvements over a feature that is already fantastic! :)
I also love the To-Do bar feature. However, could we get a field on the To-Do Bar so you can just place a check mark in a box to mark a task complete. Would make life much simplier!
I would love to be able to hide RECURRING appointments from to do bar. I need to have them on my calendar so others can schedule time accurately, however I really do not need to see recurring appointments. Is there any way to do this?
