Can tasks to be linked back to an email message,file or contacts information from the calendar?
Posted on 2011-05-05
Is there a way to create a task like and appointment or event in MS Outlook 2007 or 2010 that allows the user to post the task in the calendar on a day and specific time so that it would show up like an appointment. Then when the task came due it would create a popup message and that way if you had a task it would be taken off the task list once it is complete.
I can see that when I am in tasks you can associate (attach) a file or email with the task but you cannot schedule that task to popup when due like a calendar date and time appointment when that task should occur.....and I do not see if or where you can attach a contact to contact to a TASK......is that possible as well?
It seems like Microsoft missed an opportunity to allow that.......A POPUP MESSAGE WHEN A TASK IS DUE THEN SHOW THE EMAIL OR FILE THAT INVOLVES THAT TASK. IT WOULD BE NICE AS TO MOST PEOPLE I THINK APPOINTMENTS ARE WHERE I NEED TO BE AND TASKS ARE WHAT I NEED TO DO...................
Is this possible.......in the works or a future feature someone could suggest to Microsoft.
