clicking "completed" icon doesn't mark task complete.

Not open for further replies.


I use the to do list on the right sidebar of my Outlook views. I include the " completed" icon as a column. I used to click the icon on a task line to mark it complete. Now, nothing happens. How do I make the icon functional again.

On the To-Do Bar rather than adding the Complete column, why not just click the Follow-up Flag? That will mark the items as complete.
