Apologies if this has already been discussed; I did a search and didn't find anything exactly related.
In my office we are trying to centralize a tasking log, i.e. who was assigned what, due date, etc. I originally thought Outlook would be ideal, charging one person as the "list master" and using Outlook's "Open Other User's Folder" option so that everyone could access the master list, update status, etc.
However, (surprise surprise), MS Outlook's online collaboration functions are far from seamless. It seems if the list master creates new categories or fields, those changes do not transfer to other users. In other words, each and every user must reconfigure "Customize Current View" in order to have access to the same information.
Has anyone had experience with this problem and how have you dealt with it?
Thanks very much,
