ATOI365D#Office365Challenge We all know the feeling, when you don’t attend a meeting and actions get assigned to you without knowing. The task lists on SharePoint are a great way to manage your tasks, but also allows for task notifications to be mailed. Let me show you how.

Configure email sending on a task list:

This feature is not switched on by default. You have to go to list settings > Advanced Settings:

2017-02-15-18_06_56-list-settings-internet-explorer
Here you can switch on Email Sending:
2017-02-15-18_06_33-list-advanced-settings-internet-explorer
This is what the email will look like. It will supply all the fields as well as allow you to go to the actual task on SharePoint to update:
2017-02-15-18_15_01-tasks2-relax-a-bit-tomorrow-is-another-has-been-assigned-to-you-message

Pretty cool right?

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.
Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
