You can send a task from your task list to one or more people by selecting the task and forwarding it to them.

How do I forward a task?

  1. In the Navigation Pane, click taskTasks.

  2. Highlight the task you want to forward.

  3. Click forwardForward on the toolbar. This opens a new message form with the task added as an attachment.

  4. In the To box, type the names or aliases of the recipients, and then click Check Names check names to resolve the names. If you don't know a recipient's name, click To to open the Address Book and search for the recipient in your organisation's shared address book or your Contacts.

  5. Click sendSend or press ALT+S.

    Forwarding a task to someone isn't the same as assigning it to them. You can't create, accept or edit assigned tasks in Outlook Web App. For more information about assigned tasks, see Create and track assigned tasks in the Outlook Help.
