Connect to Outlook a Task list that has Tasks with Multiple users assigned RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using MOSS 2007 SP2 and Outlook 2007 SP2 

    I go to a task list that has multiple users assigned to a task.

    I setup the connect to outlook for this list, and in outlook I only see the tasks that have a single user assigned.

    None of the multiple user assigned tasks are visable, is this how it is supposed to work?

  • Hi,


    I have tried what you do and the results are the same to you . You can divide the tasks into several tasks and assign each task individually .


    For more information about tasks please refer to the site:

    Create and track assigned tasks: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/create-and-track-assigned-tasks-HA001229368.aspx


    If you have any more questions ,please feel free to ask.

  • Thank you for the reply.  

    Yes, I am sure it does the same for you, it does this on all 4 farms wwe have. 

    My qusetion is is this the way it is supposed only show the tasks that are assinged to a single person and not those assigned to multiple people?

    I am being told to fix this and every thing I try does nothing. 

    The link you provided was for Outlook, is there similar information for SharePoint 2007 and tasks showing up in Outlook?

  • Hi,


    This is by design with Outlook 2007. Outlook cannot sync tasks assigned to multiple people.
