When I'm working on a document that is in sharepoint and I click document management I can assign a task for someone in my group.  Lets say the task is for someone to review this doc.  How can I inform someone that the task is for this document?  I have turned on alerts and they are alerted that they have this task but there is no way for them to know which doc to review.

You should look into SharePoint Designer, which enables you to create some excellent custom workflow to attach to document libraries. You could create a workflow, attach it to the document library in question (it could be called new task workflow or some such) and then start the workflow manually. It could email the user and also contain an embedded link to the document.

You need to use the encoded absolute url field.

If you just want to the assigneed to review the document, you can use out-of-box Review workflow and it will include the document link to the user you assign to.

If you need more complicated tracking or association and out-of-box workflow can not do it, you may want to create a link with a look up filed to choose document name from it and customize workflow for it.

Thanks.
