To create a new message, click the Send New Message icon at the bottom of the Messages Panel of the Teamwork Palette, or use Teamwork > New Message.
Alternatively, select one or more user names from the Teamwork Palette’s Users panel, or from the context menu, and click the same icon there. The selected names will appear in the message’s To: field.
Click the To: button to bring up a checklist of users who are logged in to the project (whether currently online or not). Choose the recipients of your message, or click “All Users” to include everyone joined in to the project.
For extra emphasis, you can choose to add a High Priority icon to your message from the pop-up at the top right. High priority messages are shown in the recipient’s To Do list with a colored background.
You can make it easier for the message recipient if you add a pre-programmed task request as part of your message.
Before sending your message, you can optionally add a task button, so that the recipient’s copy will contain not only the message you typed, but also the specified command button, to facilitate a quick response.
Click the Optional Task pop-up in the New Message dialog box:
For example, if your message asks the recipients to send in all their work, you can attach a Send Changes button to your message. In complying with your request, the recipient needs only to click this Send Changes button from the message.
