Outlook may save multiple drafts of a task if you take a long time editing it. This will result in conflicting items.
If this occurs, you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:
An info-bar may appear on top of the task item you are editing with one of the following messages:
“This is the most recent version, but you made changes to another copy. Click here to see the other versions”
“You made changes to another copy of this item. Click here to view the other copy or to replace it with the version”
You may see multiple copies of the same item in Task folder
You may see this message: Conflicting edits have been made to the same item. To Resolve this conflict, select the item in the list below you wish to keep and then choose “Keep This Item,” or Choose “Keep All” to preserve all the versions.
The Microsoft To Do Team has released a client-side fix to address theses issues.
