Outlook "Open this task" doesn't work with SharePoint FBA?


  • Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if Microsoft or someone in the SharePoint community has published a list of specific Office 2010/SharePoint integration features that are unsupported when SharePoint is configured with FBA.

    The last one I've seemed to uncover is when you get a workflow task notification from SharePoint and try to click the "Open this task" button in Outlook.

    Outlook either loops forever trying to retrieve the task information (through the workflow.asmx web service, I've found out) or returns an error message.

    I couldn't find anything on the web about this, that's why I am turning to the Community (and maybe some MS folks) to confirm whether this behavior is to be expected or not. If so, what are the recommended workarounds?

    Also, how does this work with Office 365, btw?

    Thanks in advance for your help,
