Use Routing Slip to send a mail message or task to several users consecutively. You determine the order of the route. When a user marks the routed item Completed, it is sent to the next user on the route.
If there are attachments to the routed item, each user on the route can view and add comments to them. When comments are added to an attachment, all subsequent users on the route see the comments. The final user on the route sees all the comments that were added.
You can track the status of a routed item you have sent by checking the item’s Properties. When you send a routed item to an external address, the item is automatically marked Completed (because the external recipient will not be able to mark it) and sent to the next user on the route.
If you want to prevent a proxy from marking routed items Completed, you can require a password to complete a routed item.
