Commitment to a deliverable

I need to be able to ask the question "When can I expect your deliverable?"

The person could simply check the appropriate box for the specific time and day he is agreed to. He would not have have to log-in to do this. He would be able to see what time he committed to in his time zone, as well as what time that represents in central time. Assistance is greatly appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you should be able to assign tasks using MS Office Outlook.

once the task is created, the person simply adds the end date and updates the task.

In fact, you can accomplish this with Windows Live Calendar...

do I have to have Outlook? I don't use outlook for email. I use my gmail account.

Unfortunately, although tasks can be created in Google, they cannot be shared with other users.

You could simply use an exchange of emails to confirm due dates for specific tasks.

Close, but not quite home http://screencast.com/t/x6NwKBLKo7.  Looks like a vTiger CRM Form Project is what it will take.

Yes - you can do this using a shared Google calendar, you can share events, but not tasks.

I just tried this myself with my wife's Gmail account, I can modify the event from this account!
