    Creating Shared Tasks (Outlook 2002)

    I have a requirement to create a shared Tasks folder. I would need to generate reminders for specific staff members and to allow other specific users to access/view the folder. The task reminders would need to be generated at specific times and we would need to be able to report/view those tasks that overlap. The tasks would also include user-defined (custom) fields.
    Would you say that this is something that could be done fairly easily, or would it require an advanced knowledge of the 'internals' of Outlook and Outlook security? Andy.

    Andy, most folks who need to get into complex tasking use Project. In my limited experience as an end-user who occasionally delegates a task, I only see a potential challenge with your requirement "report/view those tasks that overlap". I think you'd have to write code that exports your tasks to Excel or Access, and produce your reports from one of those applications.
