We are using Exchange 5.5 and Outlook 2000, and have created a custom form that is going to be forwarded though our organization along a set path (no set list of specific people though: it is generic, i.e you send to your supervisor, who sends to their manager, who sends to the VP...you get the idea). At each stop along the way the info will be reviewed, and the appropriate person will check a little box saying that they approve, then forward to the next person along the line.
Eventually these forms are going to end up in HR, and they want to know if it is possible to "monitor" the progress as the form advances through the "list" of people. I.e if they get a call saying "where is this form", they can look and see that it has been forwarded through to personX, who hasn't done anything with it yet. This person will *not* have administrative rights on the Exchange server, so we can't use those tracking options directly. Is there an elegant solution to this?? Using VBA, server scripts, something along those lines?? I know there are other ways using other software, but they really like the custom email form idea, and we want to know if tracking the use of a custom form is even possible.
Any insite or direction would be greatly appreciated. Please note that I won't be able to respond right away, as I am on vacation for the next week (woohoo!).
