I have encountered some problems with the task list web part and I wondered if anyone could suggest any solutions?
So heres what is happening. I create a new task list and check the box to have it send out emails when tasks are assigned. I create a new task, assign it to myself and I get an email, great!ÃÂ Then I see that everyone elsesÃÂ tasks are viewable in sharepoint and in outlook 2007 when I syncÃÂ the webpart with that,ÃÂ which is no good. Okay no problem I'll make a change in the advanced settings of the webpart so 'only their own' is set for read and edit. Sounds good. However now when I create a new task and assign it to myself (just like before) I don't get an email (and nor does anyone else). (Incidently I tried reversing the item level permissions but still no emails). A second problem seems to be that people now also don't see tasks in sharepoint that have been created by someone else and assigned to them. Useful!
Any help would be much appreciated. More info can be provided as needed.
