Hi All,

I'm curious if anyone has some light to shed on a long term issue I've been having with Connect. I'm not sure if it's a bug or 'working as designed'.

I have two people, the Boss and the Worker.

1) The Boss creates a task in Connect and assigns it to the Worker. Connect sends the Worker a task request.

2) The Worker accepts the task request and it appears in his tasks.

3) The Worker does his task and sets the status to 'Completed' and presses 'Send'.

4) ... nothing happens. The Boss does not receive an update.

The problem seems to be that only the task creator is able to update a task. This seems kind of silly to me. If my boss assigns me a task, I shouldn't have to go see him in person to tell him it's been completed. With Connect *he* has to mark it completed and send *me* an update to tell me what I just told him.

This gets even more confusing for the Worker as the task is marked completed in his system and he has no reason to assume the Boss doesn't see the same. As it stands I have to tell people never to use Connect's tasks when they want to... ahem... 'connect' with each other.

The only other option I can see to handle tasks is to create a public folder, but this creates the problem of everyone being able to see everyone else's tasks (and change them).
