Show Task Inbox (Calendar)
The Task Inbox feature is a messaging system built into Office Accelerator that works in conjunction with the Accelerator phone book and calendar application. When used in a multi-user environment, the Task Inbox is used to manage messages sent and received. All messages sent to the Task Inbox will also appear as a Task in the message recipient's Office Accelerator calendar and will continue to roll over each day until marked as complete. In addition, if a task inbox message is linked to a contact, the task will appear as an Action Item on the linked contact located on the Personal Dashboard within the |Actions| tab. To open the task inbox, follow the directions below.
- From the Accelerator Calendar, select |Tools|Show Task Inbox|. By default, the Task Inbox will display task inbox messages marked as 'Not Done' and sent to you within the last 30 days. You can select additional inbox filter options via the |Show Tasks|, |Show Not Done| and |Show Done| drop down selections. You can also click the |Show Task Inbox| button on the calendar Tool Bar to open the Task Inbox
