5. Receiving a task request
When someone assigns a task request to you, you will receive an email message with information about the task. You can accept or decline the request by clicking on the relevant button at the top of the email message (assuming you are using an Outlook or Entourage client). If you accept the task, it is added to your task list.
Working on tasks assigned to you is no different from working on your own tasks; you can add information to the text field, update how much you have completed, etc. However, when an assigned task is updated or completed, the requestor will be notified (assuming they have opted for this).
