task reminders by email?

Postby worwan » Wed Mar 16, 2011 6:29 am

Hi,
I really would like one feature: when i create task to user XY, task reminder - email will be sent to him so he knows there is new task in his task list.
Is something like that possible? Now there is reminder checkbox + send email option => but that sends it only to me...but i want it to go to the owner of the task.
Not to mention that best thing that is not possibe is ability to actually assign task to anyone without need to share task lists.
Thanks

Radim

I'm using Zimbra v7...but as I discribed it works not as I would expected - it is always informing me..not owner of the task...thats just completely useless - sorry to it like that :)
Thanks

ok..i've changed my profile information.
But I'm still really curious - is it possible or not? Don't tell me nobody find this as standard feature of any application that organize tasks.
Thanks

In general a user sets automated reminders for himself. I am not sure how important setting up automated reminders for another user is.

Actually, I think I have the same problem. I don't get how the user is supposed to have knowledge of a new/changed task if there is no way of sending a reminder to him?
For me sharing tasks is pointless, if there is no way to let the user who shared a task (list) to me know, that I added or changed something in his task-list.
Or are all people involved in a task expected to control their tasks list for updates by the other involved people daily?
I guess I'm missing something general, but I'm wondering how somebody is really doing task management with zimbra without that feature? Maybe I'm just to much used to how it works in Outlook/Exchange ....
Cheers,

Malte

thats exactly what I meant...sharing tasks without any automatic way how to let owner know is basically useless to me :)

hi,
just refreshing this topic. I would really appreciate if anyone could explain me how authors designed tasks - what were the use cases tasks are designed...so i know if I'm wasting my time with zimbra as task management tool or not :)
Thanks a lot..

regards
