Hello, thank you for taking the time to read my question.
I am using Outlook 2010. I have two (non-default) task folders; one named Support_tasks (i.e., computer maintenance) and the other Project_tasks. I also have two (non-default) calendars; one is called Support and the other Projects. I share the calendars and task folders with my boss who also has owner privileges. The calendar appointments and tasks for both calendars and task folders are not linked to any particular person or appointment. We are using the calendars to report what projects/support are being worked (along with their time frame). The task folders show the work we do when we can (not scheduled but has to be done).
Is there a way I can only display the tasks in the Project_tasks folder when I display the Projects calendar? And the Support_tasks when I display the Support calendar? Currently I can only display all the tasks of both folders regardless of the selected calendar.
Thank you. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.
Jin

Short version: no.
Longer version: You can use a filtered view in the tasks on the to-do bar but it won't be automatic and you'll need to edit the view every time you want to switch. The taskpad under the calendar is not customizable or filterable.
