The API can be used to retrieve tasks by task’s status such as Completed, Deferred, In Progress, Not started or Waiting on others. The ExchangeQueryBuilder class can be used to specify the desired criterion utilizing the Status property. It also allows specifying multiple conditions for retrieving desired tasks from Exchange Server. This is demonstrated by the following code sample.
