A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint icon In this tutorial in the SharePoint Online from Scratch series, Peter Kalmström, shows how to connect a SharePoint tasks list to Outlook. The SharePoint list is added to the Outlook Tasks as a separate tasks folder, and you can work with the tasks while off-line. When you are connected to SharePoint again, the tasks will be synchronized.

  1. Open Outlook and the SharePoint tasks list you want to synchronize.
  2. In SharePoint, under the LIST tab, go to the ‘Connect & Export’ ribbon group and click on ‘Connect to Outlook’.
  3. In Outlook, a dialog will open to confirm “Connect this SharePoint Task List to Outlook?” Click Yes.
  4. Now you will get all tasks in the SharePoint list available in a folder inside your Outlook.
