Using your BlackBerry as an organizational tool is one of the key themes in this book. And speaking of organization, what better proof of your impressive organizational skills could exist than the fact that you use task, or to-do, lists? Knowing what you need to do today, tomorrow, the entire week, or perhaps the whole month makes you more efficient on your job and in your personal life. The fact is that you not only need to know what your tasks are, but you also need to prioritize them — and reprioritize them, if necessary. And with your BlackBerry as your able assistant, you can.

In this chapter, we introduce you to your Blackberry smartphone's Tasks application. Stick with us as we explore this valuable tool, jumping from creating and maintaining your to-do list to setting alerts for a recurring task in a single bound. We also throw in a few tips and tricks to make maintaining and searching your Tasks list easier and faster. Of course, we can't advise you on how to actually do the task after your BlackBerry calls your attention to it, but with your BlackBerry in your palm, you're at least a step closer to clearing your desk. Finally, we also give you the scoop on keeping your passwords safe by using the Password Keeper application.
