Tasks includes 3 tabs indicating the status:
- Pending meetings that have not yet been scheduled and are awaiting a reply from your invitees.
- Meetings that have been successfully scheduled, but have not yet taken place.
- Meetings that have been successfully scheduled, but have already taken place.
- Pending or Upcoming meetings that have been cancelled
To easily keep track of your upcoming meetings and requests, you can filter all of your tasks by meeting type. The filter includes a tally so you can also easily to view how many meetings you've booked per meeting type.
By default all associated meeting types are listed under each task tab. To filter the results simply click the filter at the top of the tasks page and select the meeting type name. To view all meeting types at once select "View All".

Active Reminders (remind me to...)
Active reminders (single and recurring) will also appear on your Active Tasks page. Reminders can currently be created by requesting your assistant to remind you via your favourite chat platform (For example to create a reminder ask your assistant to "Remind me to x" and specify the time. For example "Remind me to send contract to Emily Jones on Tuesday at 9am"). Learn more about reminders.
From Active Tasks you can easily cancel your active (pending) reminders by clicking the 'Cancel' button. The reminder will no longer occur after you do this.
