Why do all day events not show up in the Outlook To-Do Bar?

When adding appointments as all day events in Outlook, for some reason they don't show up in the To-Do Bar. I don't want to have to keep switching from Mail to Calendar view each time I want to just check what I have going on tomorrow.

"The short answer is ""you can't"". it's a feature. See this comment by outblog in July 07

""We intentionally decided that the To Do bar for Outlook 2007 would work the way it does, it isn't a bug that all day events or multiple-day events don't show up, that was the design for the feature. There is no way to change this behavior in Outlook today.""

A workaround maybe to create your appointments as 0 duration at 00:00 or 23:59 or whatever time find least offensive, rather than as all day appointments."

"Not really answering your question, but homework deadlines do have a due time - the time of the lecture when you have to hand them in, or perhaps the end of the day.

You could set the time to one of these and then the entry would show up in the to do bar."
