The Data Source tab within the configuration dialog firstly allows you to set the scope of your content aggregation. Choose from selecting individual lists within different sites or site collections, individual sites, multiple site collections or the entire host web. Once your scope is set, you can choose the list type, content type and child content type to include within the rollup. Optionally you can allow shared or personal filters, and set rollup limits.
On the columns tab, you can select the columns that you wish to display within the rollup. Select multiple columns such as Task Title, Start Date, End Date, Duration from your task lists. Drag and drop the columns into the correct order, set sorting, and create filters. You can also create calculated columns enabling you to concatenate together.
