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

Question asked by cbeene on Sep 24, 2018

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?
