Email Task Item

  Asked By: Amos    Date: Aug 07    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1549

We have several Task lists. Is there a way to send an email to the person in the 'AssignTo'? If there isn't anything OOTB how would I approach doing it? AFAIK there is no event sink for lists.

Have you considered leveraging public folders with task  lists in them that are visible on your sites? That would allow you to use Outlook to group by the Assigned To field.

The response that I would get is 'Then why use SharePoint if I have to switch between the port/teamsite and Outlook?' We are trying to get folks to use the portal and the team sites. Alerts don't work because you get an alert for every item  in the list and not just the ones that are for you.

The Issues list will email  the user when an issue has been assigned to them. If you want to stick to OOB functionality, you could switch to using this list instead.
