Outlook Mail Integration
Having a quick way to convert emails in Outlook to tasks that show up in Microsoft To-Do.
If you have enabled the ‘Flagged email’ option from settings in To Do, then any email you flag in Outlook will show up under the ‘Flagged email’ smartlist.
From the Outlook web app, you can create a task out of an email by right-clicking —> Advanced actions —> Create task. You can also select a message in the body of an email and create a task out of it.
In the new outlook, clicking on the To Do tab takes me to the web even though I have the native app installed, would love to see it inlined with Outlook or open the native app instead
"Send to MS To Do".
I would like to see this option on Outlook that when you right click on an email it allows me to send tasks to MS To Do.
Like many others, I too would like to see the "Open in Outlook" option in the task view to open the email in Outlook on the desktop or a pop out window rather than opening it in a web browser link to Outlook online. Maybe one option would be to have one of the application Settings options indicate if the user wants to open the email in the desktop Outlook or Outlook online.
I would also like the option to drag emails from Outlook to To Do to create a task in the list where I drop the email.
I am using To Do on my Windows desktop. All in all, I enjoy using the app. Great Job to the team!
+1 to having the outlook links open messages in the Outlook Desktop App.
+1 to having a tab in Outlook that give a view into the To Do List.
More integration with other Microsoft products would make me more inclined to keep using To Do.
The email integration does not reach my recipients. Many times emails were sent to them and it is either they did not receive emails or emails sent are delayed.

One of Microsoft To Do's features is an integration with Outlook Tasks. To view your To Do tasks on your Outlook Desktop client or on Outlook.com, use the same Microsoft account to sign in to both Microsoft To Do and Outlook. Microsoft To Do doesn't yet support all the varied features of Outlook Tasks.

I thought the new planner tasks for teams was going to integrate tasks from everywhere including outlook. However my flagged email folder does not show up, just the other folders from todo. Do I need to do something in todo to get this to work or is it something I need to do elsewhere. Shows fine in to-do

The Flagged option is in email is ok, but maybe the “category” of an email would be better...many times an email is flagged for other reasons than a “to-do”...or maybe even if email is marked with a “follow-up” it could be in TO-DO???
this is key ... it doesn't make sense to open a webpage to see the email.
Pls intergrate with email. Email not reaching receipent.

Please enable function for email notification when a task has been added to your to do list
Outlook "clear flag" commands do not flow over to To-Do.- You have to manually clear the items from To do - it should update in To DO when you cleared the flag from outlook
please make it connect to the installed version of outlook vs going to online/office 365 version
Being able to add emails directly to a task list in To Do is highly necessary (just like you can do in Todoist). At the moment the only way to get the email where I need them is to first flag them in Outlook, then switch to To Do and manually drag them to the list. Not very efficient...
I HAVE A NEW HP ALL IN ONE COMPUTER WHICH HAS SO MANY THINGS ON IT WITHOUT AN OPERATING MANUAL IT IS DIFFICULT TO PULL OUT OF ANY OF THE WONDROUS THINGS ON THIS COMPUTER. IT TAKES ME MORE TIME TO RESOLVE FINDING A SOLUTION. THEY DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING ON THE HD FOR AN OPERATOR MANUAL PARTICULRY OF SOME OF THE NEW SYMBOLS.
This app would be so much better if you could create a task simply by dragging and dropping an email from Outlook onto it. Oh, and make it work on macOS too please...
I want to maintain only one To-Do app, but my office ID (as part of Office365) and personal ID (@outlook.com) are not syncing. Therefore, I have to search for other alternatives.
