Monitoring Task Progress

After you've passed along ownership of a task, you will want to keep track of it. Whenever it's edited, you'll want to check the changes, just as you will need to know any supplemental information about the task and stay up to date on its status. Outlook enables you to automatically keep track of assigned tasks and receive regular updates on their progress. When you create a task, you are designated as the owner of that task. As its owner, you are the only person who can edit the task, unless you assign it to someone else and they accept the assignment. In that case, however, you can still opt to maintain an updated copy in your Tasks folder and obtain status updates whenever the task is edited or completed.

Receive Updates for an Assigned Task

Double-click the task.

Click the To button, select a recipient, click To, and then click OK.

If it is not already selected, select the Keep An Updated Copy Of This Task On My Task List check box.

If it is not already selected, select the Send Me A Status Report When This Task Is Complete check box.

Click the Send button.

Click the Assignment option on the Navigation pane.
