People frequently perform online tasks that require input from others, typically requiring multiple context switches to consult with multiple parties until a consensus is reached. The process can be time consuming, requiring the user to pause until others provide input. A user must also remember to return to the task and complete it after the input sought from others is received. This disclosure describes a technique to obtain input from others regarding an online task. At the point when completing the task requires input from another party, the techniques solicit such input, with user permission. Conversational responses received from other parties are analyzed and used to complete the paused task automatically.
