In Outlook 2003, is there a way to:

1. Assign a task to multiple people

2. Assign a task to 1 person but Carbon Copy other people so they are aware the task has been assigned to a certain person as well as the details given to them?

For example, I wish to assign an IT Tech a task to run some cables and I wanted to CC the IT manager and also the people in that room so they know that work is going to be done in there on a certain day.

Thanks in advance for the replies!

Yes a task can be assigned to multiple people.  Simply click Assign Task and add there names to the list of addressees in the To field.  There's a down side to this though.  Tasks assigned to more than one person do not update like a task assigned to one person does.  You'll get reports back, but the task itself will not be updated with the details.

There is no mechanism for CCing someone else on a task.  That would require some scripting or creating a custom task form.
