Outlook Mail Integration
Having a quick way to convert emails in Outlook to tasks that show up in Microsoft To-Do.
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.
To get the latest version of To-Do please go to https://products.office.com/en-us/microsoft-to-do-list-app

If you have stopped us from using Wunderlist, then you need to provide alternatives for what we are used to doing in Wunderlist. I could forward an email to my Wunderlist and then delete the original so I could empty out my inbox. The flagged email thing doesn't work for me, I'm not sure if it's because I have a Mac or because I was forced to create a non-work email address from Outlook to use To Do, but then find out that this Flag to Email feature only works with work email addresses. Get it together, people.
Please open Emails in Outlook 2019 instead of OWA when you click on "Open in Outlook"

Thanks for the flagging integration feature..... but... :-)
If you don't keep the flagged email in your inbox, it marks the Task as completed, even if you have pulled that Task into a different List. So, this requires users to keep the email in their InBox, which is one of the things that most people use ToDo to avoid. Many of us have a process whereby we work toward "InBox Zero" which is a habit of emptying our InBox daily. This integration only works if a user is willing to use their InBox as an additional ToDo list.
What I'm doing instead: Flag the email. Find it in ToDo. Delete the email. Show completed in ToDo. Uncheck completed. It's a kluge, but it's better than an InBox filled with flags.
Please could we look at a feature to select an email in outlook and say 'add to list', and you can select which todo list to add it to?
Also, please can the 'open in outlook' button for emails flagged, open in outlook, rather than o365 web access?
Simply flagging is not good enough, flags in outlook are also used for other reasons. We need to be able send the email or dairy event to ToDo... please listen to everyone asking for this feature

I am held hostage to server-based Exchange at work.........
And a choice to see it online or in the app itself. Now, whenever I want to click on a flagged e-mail, I get the online version of the mail, not the local, which I want.

or not only Outlook, but Gmail calendar as well
I would like to attach an e-mail from outlook or a document from either sorce in a task by simply drag & drop.

The current solution for this in the Windows desktop app doesn't respect the folder the flagged message is in. I have rules set up to sort incoming emails into inbox folders and I'd like the to-dos to be grouped based on those folders. Currently, if I flag an email in one of the folders, the task shows up in To Do along with everything else and there's no indication of the folder or category the task is in. Ideally, the folders would sync across the two applications. I don't use categories for tasks but I'm sure a lot of people do.

I wish this would show me the full email with date/time or even better take me to the email in Outlook, not the Office 365 version, which does not seem to get me to the email itself in a way I can respond.
I do not get any e-mail notifications from to do. The phone pop-up is not sufficient. Without the e-mail notification from due tasks to do will be useless. Wunderlist had this feature and it worked perfect with google adresses.

The flagged email feature is great. I just wish it would auto-hide when empty like the other smart lists.
It would be nice, if either a preview of the mailbody would be available or at least the option to open the mail in the desktop version of outlook instead of just the web-version.
Thank You in advance

Is this also possible with Outlook 365 Desktop Version or just the Web Client?

need to do the needful
How hard is it to make the same outlook integration as wunderlist had, you bought the wunderlist software so it should be very simple.
