While I have added or modified fields in the earlier versions of outlook, I don't seem to find the way to add a field to my Task form in Outlook Home and Business 2010.

It's done the same way in the newer versions too. Is the Developer ribbon showing? if not, go to File, options, customize ribbon and add a check to Developer. This gives easy access to the forms designer commands.

Thank you very much Diane. Now I can see the Developer. Thank you.

Is there a way I can change the values for the pull downs of the priority. Right now the values are High, Normal and Low. I want to replace these with a new set of nine values. Any suggestion? And would I then re Publish or what are the steps.

Thank you again Diane.

No, you can't change those values. Sorry.
Thank you Diane.
Alternatively I just need to add a custom priority field with additional value in the pull down. Is there a document or video to walk me though how to do that? Thank.

The menu is not editable - you'll need to use a custom control and create your own priority control.

Thanks Diane. Are there any video or documents that can help me build my custom control for my specialized "priority" without messing with Microsoft standard controls. Thanks.
