How to: Add "Reply To" to a Task RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm looking for something similar to a "Reply" button that is within a discussion board.
    When a task is assigned to an individual or group, there is no button/option to "Reply".

    Something instead of "edit item" and replying...

  • Thanks for your input Hari,
    As a workaround, I've created a workflow to start a task from within a discussion.

    People assigned will have one task, and also have the ability to reply to and/or update the task from within the discussion.

    My goal was to just use a task for this method, but it doesn't seem possible at this point.

  • I'm not a great coder, but I would think there should be a way to just add a button linking to a similar frame within the discussion that will allow someone assigned to a task to collaborate, or reply with tasks completed.

    Anyone have a thought?

  • Hi,

    I dont have exact answer for your question.

    But you can go for workflow to trigger mails when a task is complete or when a task/item is udpated.
