    Tasks in Web Access 2003 (2003 on Exchange)

    Hi all! I did a quick search, but haven't found an answer yet. It appears that you cannot mark a task complete when using Outlook Web Access 2003. I get an error message telling me that tasks can't be modified and to mark a task complete I have to use the client. Has anybody encountered this? We're running Outlook 2003 on an Exchange server in a mixed Windows XP/2000 environment. Thanks for any help you can give!

    Has to be something in your setup. I had no problem marking a task complete. I am using SBS 2003, Outlook 2003, and the OS doesn't seem to make a difference as I access OWA from XP Pro; XP Home and NT environments

    Re: Tasks in Web Access 2003 (2003 on Exchange)

    I wonder if it's the way Exchange Admin sets it up. I have NO options other than reply or forward on a Task in OWA 2003 on Exchange 2003. I have all the usual options in client Outlook. Since I'm not a much of Task user, it doesn't bother me, but it would be nice to be able to mark them completed in OWA.

    Karen, could you post a PNG screen shot of a test Task in OWA showing what your OWA Task UI looks like?

    Hi all,

    You have to have the task open... there is no option when previewing tasks to mark them as complete... I had never noticed this as I usually make some comment in the task before closing it off anyway. But with the task open you can click on the toolbar or use the drop list to indicate it is complete.

    Dooohhh you can mark a task complete from the task list by just clicking in the box next to the task name ... sorry I can't give you a screen shot but I have some private information in my task titles... <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>

    I hafta complain to my IS team! Attached is a screen shot of a test Task I created in Outlook and viewed in OWA 2003; it doesn't have any of your bells and whistles, it's the same as a message window. Waaaah! <img src=/S/crybaby.gif border=0 alt=crybaby width=15 height=15>

    Per our admin, personal tasks that we create for ourselves can be modified. It is task requests that you receive from someone else that can't be modified in OWA -- apparently something about keeping the message correct??? Thanks to everybody for checking on this!
