Move assigned task to new category



My boss assigns tasks via Outlook 2007 and they would show up as not having a
category because I hadn't set any up. Today I created several categories so
that I can better manage my tasks. When I added an existing assigned task to
one of my new categories, it created a new category in my bosses Outlook with
the name I had given it. Is there any way to avoid this from happening?

It did not create a new Category in your Boss' Master Category List.

When you boss views their updated copy of your Task, they saw the Category
you allocated to it. The Category does not become a Category in their Master
Category List.

Is your question about how to stop the boss from seeing the Category you
used for the Task? If so, why?
