How to complete workflow tasks via email links without accessing Windchill?

Anyone know if there is a way to create a hyperlink within an email that will allow a user to complete a Windchill workflow task without having to log into Windchill? We have users who travel a lot and don't always have access to our company network, so it would be great to allow them a way to complete tasks via email.


We are using Windchill 10.0 M040, but we will be upgrading to Windchill 10.1 M040 in a couple of months.


Thanks,

Short Answer: No.

Most would consider this semi-insecure. This would require a program capable of reading the replies from users via a custom generic mail server inbox. Then running an administrative custom interface to complete them on their behalf. It's not overly complicated to develop. Update wt.mail.from property so replies go to correct mail box. This would be custom with likely a few variant ways to implement.
