Outlook Mail Integration
Having a quick way to convert emails in Outlook to tasks that show up in Microsoft To-Do.
Add Flagged messages in outlook (mobile and full outlook) to to-do tasks

I am a Personal / Executive Assistant. I get a billion emails each day and because of that, it can be easy to miss something such as setting up a meeting quickly. This will be a great help. I hope you implement this on the mobile version too for both Outlook for Mobile and To Do for mobile - iOS.
I also have a few "folders" of TO DO's - ie. one for meetings, one for admin work, one for the IT support i provide etc - so being able to send to those would be good via right button click.
Please make sure flagged CONTACTS are as well, pretty much make sure that we can have one TOOL to see all our tasks, even the ones from Planner, everything in one area, centralized everything into one app, simple for your users.
I have been using the To-Do apps more since it can be used with Wunderlist. I just find it more time to consume since you must synchronize the two every time you add something to the Wunderlist.
Show flagged emails in To-do.
Would be great if comments can also be added to them.

You "Need flagged emails to appear in todo list."
If you need it ASAP then you can use Todoist.
Need flagged emails to appear in todo list.
When i flag email in outlook it goes to task section in but it is not synchronized into todo app
when i add todo task it is synchronized to outlook tasks :)
Idea is to sync emails. maybe it is enought to synch emails that was marked as flaged

Should be available on win 10 mail app
When you implement this, make sure it will support the mobile versions too

Outlook for Mac and IOS as well please
What is the point of using a ToDo app that doesnt inform me about my numerous ToDo tasks coming straight from my outlook? They are already there, scheduled, waiting, and hoping I will get informed in time about them somehow...
I tried To-Do, it does a wonderful job syncing between desktop and mobile (both ios and android), but so far it works only for groceries..
It will be really useful to have email integration as I use this in outlook all the time
A work around here is to create a Quick Step that turns an email into a Task with the email text as the note. The created task then syncs with To-Do. You just have to go through and do this for existing flagged emails and get into the habit of clicking the Quick Step rather than the flag. The Quick Step can be in the Home Ribbon and on the Right Click context menu so only a little more effort.

If you just make sure the outlook To-Do List view under Tasks - which picks up flagged items including emails - surely this is a simple way to address the item above
the ability to open a small window from within Outlook.com instead of a full tab would be nice too. Not sure how the conversion of an email into a task would be possible but is there was a pre-made flow that would be nice
It would be great to have the ability to forward an email from anywhere into To-Do. I am using Toodledo now and that is the feature I use the most. I have several different email accounts, and when I need to add action items to my bucket I can do so via email forwarding on any device from any account
When an email is marked as a to-do, show the mail conversation inside To-Do as well AND allow me to reply directly from To-Do. Additionally, show new incoming mails for that conversation thread in To-Do and allow me to add other conversations as well. If the To-Do is on a list that is shared with others, they should be able to reply too.

Would like this available in Outlook for Mac as well, and the webmail version.
Related - it would be nice to be able to change default list so that emails converted to ToDos can go to that default
