I'm trying to use the Content Query Web Part to display all the tasks within a site collection, I've attached images of the Web Part properties and final output below.

I'm looking for information on how to include additional fields within the output. Ideally I would like to see the Title, Due Date, Priority, % Complete and provide a link to the actual task form/parent list.

Is anyone able to provide me with an example solution which I can expand on, or information and pointers which will get me started in the right direction?

Content By Query Web Part is XSL based, by default, Title, Description, ImageUrl, and LinkUrl columns (if present) of the items that the query returns are rendered. The Web Part renders the ImageUrl column and the LinkUrl column as an image and as a hyperlink, respectively.

If you want to query for custom content types and render specific columns from those content types in the Web Part, you must perform some minor customization in the web part.

CommonViewFields property is used to specify the additional fields that you want to display in the Web Part

You will need to create some custom XSLT which will allow you to present whatever fields you like. If you need a steer on this there are a couple of blog posts which may help - http://paylord.wordpress.com/2012/09/28/cqwp-and-xslt-part-1/
