Having Outlook task list remind not only myself, but other user's that I select from the address book.

Ok.  Here's what I am looking to do:

I have an Outlook task list.  I create the tasks, and when the reminders come up, I would like to have the reminder not only notify me, but also notify other users responsible for completing the task.

I know that I can assign the task to another user.  Unfortunately, however, I do not get any updates unless the user updates their tasks.  I would much rather just make sure that they get a reminder, via email, of the task that is coming due on MY task list.

Anyone know of any add-in (or app that integrates with Outlook) that allows assinging email addresses to each individual task, and that's where the reminders FOR THAT TASK go?  I have found some that allow me to enter multiple email addresses, but they work for ALL tasks.. and I want each task to have a different set of email addresses to remind to.

Hi cbromley33,

Check this


Unfortunately, Sunny.. that doesn't allow each task to have a different set of email addresses assigned to it.  It's a bulk remailer.. so it will send ALL reminders to whatever addresses I specify.  Not each individual task to different addreses. :(

Sunny -

Reminder Manager does the exact same thing as the original one.  The Infoware product, however, might work.. of course, it's a bit pricey.. but it isn't THAT bad..  Going to have to try it out and see.

I'm still open to other addons or applications.
