Task completion status of an assigned task

I am using a global mail box for distributing scheduled 
tasks. From the global mail box, I define the task, set it 
to recurring, then assign the task to an individual. The 
individual accepts the task, then would update the status. 
What I am not seeing is the status get back to the global 
mailbox. I get a status report with the completion status 
in the global mail box inbox from the assigned user, but 
the global mailbox never updates the task status. Ideally, 
I would like the global mailbox to see the task status 
update from the assigned user and then update the task 
status in the global mailbox taskpad.

My testing shows as long as I don't make the task 
recurring or regenerating the task status from the assign 
user will update in the global mailbox taskpad. 

Has anyone tried this or know of a work around?

Concatenate Tasks With Summary Tasks in Reports
I think I have found in other posts but I want to ask directly just in case someone else has other info... Can MSP concatenate each task in a report with its summary tasks? Without this, I don't know what part of the project each task pertains to. (Example, does "Buy space" pertain to the April or May set of tasks?) If I add a breadcrumb to each task in the entry view, not only is this time consuming but I also can't read the entry view as well as before. This limitation severly cuts down on the usefulness of the reports for me. In article <FFB3AE7E-881E...

Assigning XML string as the content of an attribute
Hi. I want to assign an XML string to an XML attribute. This XML string must undergo "escape" conversion so that the < and & symbols are converted in to escaped equivalents. Does the .Net library have a conversion method that does this? Note that I want to construct the resulting XML string myself without having to use an XmlDocument. E.g. string myXml = "<root><record/><record/></root>"; string myDoc = "<doc myXml='" + Converter.escapeMyXml (myXml ) + "'/>"; -- McGeeky http://mcgeeky.blogspot.com ...

Assigning a value to each unit
I'm trying to assign a value to each entry on an Excel spreadsheet. Since I'm grasping at straws for a way to phrase my question, perhaps it would be better to explain my intended use. I'm trying to designing an incident command spreadsheet for fire department use, and want to have each unit, such as an engine or ambulance, assigned a default value (used for staffing). For example, an ambulance needs to have at least 2 people to be used properly. Thus, I would like to have the default value for an ambulance be 2. I'm also calculating the total number of people (minimum staffing...

Task Scheduler error
A long time ago I scheduled a task to load up a certain utility at 7 am. However, I've just realized it never gets loaded. I went into Task Scheduler to see what's going on, and as it opened I get this error: "An error has occured for task Reminders - owner. Error message: the specified account name is not valid" I'm looking at my task and I see that "When running a task, use the following user account" is set to "RICK \owner". I'm not sure how to check if that's a valid account name. I don't log on to my computer wi...

Completely Blank Report...no title, data, etc.
I am using Access 2002. I have created five reports that list totals in the footer of each for January through December. They are then all on a report so there is only one report instead of five. They are not linked to each other. All of them show up except one. One of the reports shows nothing at all, not even the title of the report just a huge blank area where the report should be. I'm assuming this is because there isn't any data pulled when the query runs. If I run the report by itself I receive rows of #Errors where all the calculations are but nothing but ...

Updating tasks with VBA script
I've built a scheduling tool which uses Access to create the tasks. Once the tasks are generated, they're sent to Outlook. My problem is the tasks are grouped in categories and if a due date is changed it needs to move all the following tasks by x number of days. (My keyfield ie- 57-41, then 57-42, etc. is stored in the contacts field) I had planned to first pull the data back to Access to see what dates changed. Off of that data, I'd delete the following tasks and reinsert them with the modified dates. I would prefer to do this in Outlook but do not know the Outlook object mod...

Workflow generated task and changed owner
We are using a workflow to inform administration staff about a new generated order. That works fine and the task will be generated for the right CRM user. But, if we change the owner of that related order also the task previously generated by the workflow will be re-assigned to that nre owner. With CRM 3.0 it was working fine (left the task unchanged). With CRM 4.0 the task owner will be changed unexpected. The first thougt which comes to me is that it might have something to do with "Type of behaviour". Open the task entity and double click on N:1 relationship name Acco...

Assigning Task to Queue or User
I have an issue with Assigning a task to a queue or another user. If the task is created in Sales for Outlook (SFO), the queue option is not available in the drop down list in the lookup table. The only option is the user. A reboot of the workstation seems to fix this, but man is this silly or what? The user is attempting this: Create a task for an order and assign the task to the receiving queue (all from within SFO). The queue does not show up to seach from in the Lookup Records Web Page Dialog. The weird part is that even if you go to CRM Web Client on the same machine, the qu...

In the first box of the contacts page it asks for email and it prints the actual email address: xxzz@yahoo.com Directly under that box is another box which asks for "display as".

When I go to send an email in Outlook, I start to type in the name but it doesn't select the right name (or any name), unless I can type the first three or four letters of the email address. In ...
