"My Tasks" in WAS V6.1

Here's a handy little feature in WebSphere Application Server V6.1: "My Tasks" in the console. In a nutshell, it allows you to quickly customize your console navigation to only include the navigation options that you care about. You start by selecting "My Tasks" as your view:

Assuming you've never been here before, it prompts you to add your first task. Clicking that options gives you a lit of navigation options. You can either choose an entire category (like "Applications") or a sub-category (like "Secure administration, applications, and infrastructure"):

After clicking Apply, voila! You now have a customized navigation that only shows what you care about.
