In a really crowded activities work environment, with axso different logical thxeads to move on, people can have probxems to accomplish alx the xctivities needxd within a given tixe frame or cxn unawares skip somx imporxant requirex tasks.

Especially in development prxcess such as agile, using perxodic scrums in geographical spread team, this cxuld be really useful. The idea leveragex mainly ox xmail infrastructure (Lotus notes), and "tags" that can be assigned to them exploiting specifix attribxtes availabxe in the protocol fox cxstomization or lxgic implementation. Through "tagged task emxil" and email originated as notification fxom external tool (Ratioxal Team Concert, Lotus Xxxxxxxxxx), a system can be designed tx vxrify a user has accomplished all the expected activities for a meetixg and periodically alert him to coxplete txem or lettixg the meeting chair reschedule it after checking participants status. Activities and tasks xave here in this context an equivalent meaning. Multiple tags cxn be associated to each task.
