    Tasks won't show on today screen

    Advertisement



    I have my tasks set to show on my calender and they do, but when I go to the today screen, they do not show up. Only the calendar events show up. Any ideas?

    Double check your settings for the task, when is it due and if you have a reminder, if your calendar events happen before the task, they show up in order of occurance.
    It takes many professionals versed in many different area's to help the masses, I am just a single drop in that pool.

    The task is due before another calendar event that shows on my today screen. I do not have a reminder set, but I tested it out to see if that matters and it still doesn't show up. Also it shows up on my calendar, just not on my today screen.

    in your calender options you can select the start and end of a day. if the task falls out side of those settings it will not show up on your today screen. you may need to extend the times of your day.

    I had my days going from 12 am to 12 am, but I adjusted them to 6am to 10pm and it still does not show. I'm not sure what's going on here

    I could be wrong, but I don't think task can be displayed on the today homescreen. Only calendar appointments will be displayed.

    The OP already stated that his task are displayed in the calendar, but not in the today theme homescreen indicating that he's already enabled "show task" in the calendar options.

    However, even with the "show task" enabled in the options, task will not be displayed in the homescreen when using the today theme.

    Everyone who mentioned that Tasks will not show on the Today screen is right (as far as I know, at least...you may be able to do it if you design your own theme). But there is a simple workaround to get them to show up on your Today home screen. Just stop using the Tasks application and schedule all of your tasks through your Calendar instead. They will then show up on the Today screen along with your other holidays, birthdays, etc. Not the greatest solution, but the only one that seems to work.

    You can check for custom themes that display task. I used to have one on my Pearl. It has to be compatible with OS 4.3 or higher. But some people used the theme maker to put messages, calendar, and tasks all on the homescreen. I'm checking my berry now.

    Yeah it's not on my berry anymore. Search the themes here or try looking on other blackberry sites. Otherwise like it was mentioned, store your tasks in the calendar.
