You can prioritize tasks by the following properties.
To set task priority level
You can also change task priority level on the ribbon.
You can use numeric priority if five priority levels are not enough or there is a need to set tasks order within a priority level.
To set task numeric priority
Note Each priority level corresponds to its numeric value and range, that is “Lowest” level corresponds to value 100 and range 1-199. “Low” level corresponds to value 300 and range 200-399, “Normal” level corresponds to value 500 and range 400-599, “High” level corresponds to value 700 and range 600-799, “Highest” level corresponds to value 900 and range 800-999:
You can prioritize tasks by using urgency/importance matrix (U/I matrix).
To set task urgency/importance (U/I)
- If you select both the Urgent check box and the Important check box, then the U/I column shows A priority (important and urgent).
- If you select the Important check box only, then the U/I column shows B priority (important).
- If you select the Urgent check box only, then the U/I column shows C priority (urgent).
- If you select neither the Urgent check box nor the Important check box, the U/I column shows D priority (not important and not urgent).
Tip You can sort and filter tasks in the U/I column by clicking the column header and selecting check boxes next to required letter in Quick Filter.
