I am very tech saavy, but I can't figure this one out for the life of me. Previously there used to be an option to mark tasks as read in office 2003 and prior, but in 2007 it appears to be gone. I assign a lot of tasks to my employees. When I open the emails automatically sent to me as they work on the tasks, it updates the tasks but stays in an unread status in my task list, as though I've never viewed the taks. Slightly annoying, but in previous versions of office I could at least highlight all the tasks, and then right click and choose mark as read. However, in 2007 I don't see this option, and certainly can't find it in the help menus. Any ideas?

Do you mean "Mark as complete?"

No. I mean it shows as unread messages in my task folder, although it is already marked complete (line through it and all) as I open the email updates for the tasks. It just doesn't mark it as being read without me actually opening the task after I've assigned it.

I figured it out finally. While in folder view, right click on tasks in the folder list, and then it gives you an option to mark all tasks as read.
