With the last update of To-Do across platforms we have enabled the option to see flagged emails from Outlook as Tasks in Microsoft To-Do. Simply flag an email in Outlook to create a task from it in To-Do.

You can enable this feature in Microsoft To-Do from within the App Settings.

    It would be great that when you clicked on the "Open In Outlook" button it would open the email in Outlook on my desktop not the web browser version.

    I enjoy the wunderlist add-in that lets me quickly place the email (with it's subject and body) into a certain list I can choose via a drop down menu and set a reminder... would be great if to-do added something similar. The flag is nice, but then I have to go back into to do and organize and set the reminder. Feed won't let me post a screenclip of what the wunderlist add in looks like.

    This is a good feature but why does the link only open OWA mail instead of my Outlook desktop client on Windows 10?

    Should also be possible for emails converted into tasks in Shared Mailboxes. right now you have to copy the mail from shared mailbox into personal inbox and convert into tasks there which is not quite user friendly!

    I'm having the same issue like the previous post. When I flag an email on Outlook on Mac or Samsung Email on S10+, the to-do do not show up. If I toggle the settings in to-do app on Android, they show up. But once again if I flag an email it doesn't pop up in to-do app

    Mails flagged within the iOS native app are not visible in the iOS To-Do app, but the mails are flagged on outlook web.

    Please fix!

    Desperately needs to be synced with the categories in Outlook. I already have categories in both, but now I have to manually move the items from Flagged to the appropriate tag in To-Do as well, doubling my work.

    Flagged email is ok. However I'm using one of my lists as a "catch-all" for any tasks that come to mind. I would love to create a rule in ToDo to automatically move any tasks in Flagged Email to my catch-all list to prevent me from having to do so manually.

    Flagged emails support is nice, but i don't want to keep an email around. So creating a task from email still is needed.

    In Outlook.com I see the To-Do sidebar but here the most important view is missing: My Day.
    I am using my phone to plan My Day and it would be very helpful to see this list besides my mails.

    it is time for people to embrace online app and not be so dependent on the desktop app. It is good that it opens in outlook.com, this is the way of the future, then no apps are needed

    In To-Do when you click on Open In Outlook it opens Outlook.com in a browser rather than in Outlook. This is ridiculous.
