Show Task Inbox

The Task Inbox feature is a messaging system built into the Office Accelerator phone book that works in conjunction with the Office Accelerator calendar.  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 |Action| tab.  To open the task inbox, follow the directions below.

  1. From the Office Accelerator phone book, click the |Tools| menu and select |Task Inbox|Show Task Inbox|.
