How to change public folder tasks permissions to be editable?

Hello Experts,

I am trying to figure out how to make the tasks in the public folders section not read-only.  We are using SBS 2011 and Exchange 2010 and we use public folders and we do our construction and restoration work through the tasks section of the public folders.  Everyone in the company needs to be able to edit tasks created by anyone in this folder.  Right now, we have two users, one being myself that when we open up a task created by other people, they open as "read-only" and we cannot edit them.  How do I change the permissions of all of these tasks so they open in a mode where we can edit any of them.  We cannot do any work if they open in "read-only" mode.  We need to be able to edit any of them.  How do I change this so anyone can edit any task on the list in the public folders?
