About this task
The calendar highlights the deadlines for your to-do items for the current month, using the following background colors and symbols to highlight significant dates. The current date is highlighted in bold text.
Table 1. Calendar color codes and symbols
|To-do items that are overdue.|
|Gray||#||To-do items to be completed today.|
|Blue||*||Personal to-do items to be completed on a future date.|
|Green||+||Team (unassigned) to-do items to be completed on a future date.|
For example, for a to-do item assigned to you personally that must be completed on a future date, that date is highlighted with a blue background, with an asterisk (*) symbol preceding the date.
The calendar also flags the dates associated with unassigned tasks to be completed in the future. Deadlines for completed tasks are not included. If a personal to-do item and a team to-do item fall on the same day, then the calendar flags the personal to-do item rather than the team to-do item.
Use the arrows on either side of the month name to display task deadlines for the previous and following months.
