Can I Assign Put a Public Folder on a Tasks's Update List?

In our small office we use tasks extensively and assign them around the office. From time to time, a client will call in asking the status of the task, and I would like anyone to be able to see the task, regardless of if they have been assigned the task (and therefore are on the update list). Is it possible to add a public folder to the update list on the task, so that the public folder receives updates? Thanks!

You can put a task in a public folder, but it won't process updates. Maybe the solution in your situation is to give users read-only access to each other's Tasks folders.

Thanks for the thought, and we could definately do that, but then it becomes pretty cumbersome, hunting around to try to find who has that particular task. If we did that, is there a was to unify the data from all of the shared task folders. Can you create a search folder that searches accross shared folders?

No, search folders can't do that.

Another idea: Create the tasks in the public folder, and update them manually.

Yeah, I thought of that, but really I want everyone to have their own task list. Thanks again for your time in looking at this!
