Updating Progress from email
In addition to logging an update using the web interface, task assignees can also reply via email to file their update. When managers request an update, assignees get an email like this:
Clicking on the Update Progress button as shown above, opens up a new email compose window in which you can modify the subject to fill in % complete, hours and time code. All are optional. You can also attach files and add a description that will become the progress update's text. A sample is shown below:
A few minutes after the email is sent, this progress update will be added to the task. If you have put in hours, time will also be logged and sent for approval.
