Turn an email into an Outlook task
You can turn an email into an Outlook task by dragging it into your task list. If you drop it on to a task, you will see two options:
Select "Add as child task" to create a new Outlook task from the email, and add a link to it as a child of the target task. The app will use the subject of the email as the name of the task; you can change the name by double-clicking on the link to open the linked Outlook task and and changing its name.
The app will also create a copy of the email, and link it to the task.
If you select "Save with task" the app will not create a new task from the email. It will just make a copy of the email, and link it to the task.
If you want to add the email as a root task, drag it on to an empty area of your task list.
