3. Shared tasks

3.1. Sharing your tasks

You can share your task with other Nexus users and decide what they are able to do with your tasks (this is different from assigning tasks to others, as described below, and delegating access, described on another page).

  1. To share your tasks, click on Share My Tasks folder in the left-hand pane of your tasks screen.
    Tasks screen with Share My Tasks
                                    option

  3. Click on the To... button and select the person(s) whom you are giving permission to share your tasks from the list. Click OK.
  4. If you are asking for permission to see the recipient's tasks too, tick the Request permission to view recipient's Task folder. You can edit the subject and add a message.
  5. Click Send to send the message and invite the recipients to see your tasks.

3.2. Viewing shared tasks

When someone invites you to see their tasks, you will receive an email message about it.

To see the shared tasks, simply click on the Open this Tasks folder button at the top of the message (if your message does not contain such a button, open your email in Outlook).

You should now be able to see the tasks of this person in a separate window.
