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 task in the app 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.
