How to add the ability to respond to an email for outsiders

Jump to solution

We are building a workflow to send Purchase Orders from SharePoint, to our vendors.  I would like the ability for them to accept or reject the PO, and have that update the document library with "Accepted" or "Rejected" and kick off other actions.  I looked into using a flexi-task but that requires me to share the entire document library.  

I have noticed that one of our customers uses a method where pressing "Accept" or "Reject" opens an email response with Accept or Reject in the body of the email, and a code that I assume ties it to a library or list, but I'm not sure how to replicate that in O365.

Anyone have any idea's??

UPDATE: I figured out that my customer is leveraging "MailTo:" links in their Accept and Reject hotlinks.  How can I, as an office 365 user, leverage that too?

Hey there... the functionality you are looking for is in the task settings for lazy approval. Simply check the box and the funcationlity will be there, barring you aren't in a restricted O365 tenant and have the latest version of Office Outlook installed to see this.
