Hi there,

I installed the IT team workspace template and created a site based on this template. All went well, except the only issue i have is that I cannot seem to connect the projects tasks to outlook(the button is missing), however i can see the button and connect to outlook from another task list i created by using the built in tasks template that is seperate from the projects tasks.

Is there any way to somehow add the connect to outlook button to this task list that was created using a template

many thanks,

Isaac

Did you check if the right siteparts are actived

I assume you are referring to the site features

They should be activated since i created another task list(not based on the microsoft it team workspace) within the same site and i see the connect to outlook button just fine.

Unless there is somewhere else i need to look to activate the button

I think the issue is that the IT team workspace template creates the projects tasks in a way that doesn't allow an outlook connection....perhaps it is because it is a gantt chart

Hi there,

I'm using the same template to track small developments (we're not a software company and this site it's enough for our needs)

Still, it seems, that the tasks and issues lists are somehow locked, because If I add a new column, it's not visible for a new item (for instance I wanted to link somehow the issues to the tasks rather than the projects list)

I'm disapointed, because I already have a lot of data in this site and I can't customize the way that I want.

also, the Item-level Permissions are not available for the Project Tasks list.

Hi Andrei,

Did you get a solution for this as i have exactly the same problem

Unfortunately no, and I think I will forget about this. Im going to customize an IT workspace beginning with a blank template.

i can't believe they didn't include a connect to outlook button on this very useful template for the project tasks....i guess the only way to do it is to start from scratch to make the template look like the it team workspace template since no one seems to have the answer here.
