Chapter 14: Big-Time Collaboration with Outlook
Sending a status report
People who give out tasks really like the Assign Task feature. People who
have to do those tasks are much less enthusiastic. If you’re a Task getter
more often than you’re a Task giver, you have to look at the bright side:
Outlook on an Exchange network can also help the boss stay informed about
how much you’re doing — and doing and doing!
You may have noticed that the Task form has a box called Status and another
called % Complete. If you keep the information in those boxes up to date,
you can constantly remind the Big Cheese of your valuable contributions by
sending status reports.
To send a status report, follow these steps:
1. Click Tasks in the Navigation bar.
The Task module opens.
2. Double-click any task.
A Task form opens.
