Sync SharePoint Tasks List with Outlook

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.

These are the steps to connect a SharePoint tasks list to Outlook:
  1. Open Outlook.

  2. In SharePoint, under the LIST tab, go to the ‘Connect & Export’ ribbon group and click on ‘Connect to Outlook’.

  3. In Microsoft 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.

  5. To create a new task in Outlook, click on the New Task button under the Home tab.

  6. Type or select an assigned person for the task list and write the subject.

  7. Click on Save & Close.
When you refresh your SharePoint page you will see the tasks you have created in Outlook.
