Disable Items in User Interface - Custom

    Question

  • I have been looking through the Control Identifier/Policy ID number from the spreadsheets below.

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=6627

    I have been unable to find the following item in order to remove it using group policy.  Can someone tell me definitively if it does not exist and if it does what is the correct ID in order to disable it through User Configuration->Administrative Templates->Microsoft Outlook 2010->Disable Items in User Interface->Custom.

    Under Tasks, New Task, Assign Task there is a check box next to "Send me a status report when this task is complete" that I want to remove.

    Thanks,

    -Ethan

    >>Under Tasks, New Task, Assign Task there is a check box next to "Send me a status report when this task is complete" that I want to remove.

    Sorry, based on my knowledge and test, there is no corresponding policy ID to disable this checkbox.

    In addition, I searched around and found that this setting should correspond to the following registry key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\options\Tasks

    AddToUpdList

    Regarding this point, the following article can be referred to for more information.

  • Frank,

    I do not see the Tasks folder under options in the registry.   Can the folder and key just be created?

    Thank you,

    -Ethan

  • Hi Ethan,

    Yes, we can manually create the key and add the value AddToUpdList with REG_DWORD type. After configuring the value with 0 or 1, if it doesn't take effects, we can try a re-logon or reboot.
