Creating Outlook tasks from OneNote

Office 365 / SharePoint Blog

OneNote is great at making notes, whether it’s your own personal to-do list, or a collective task list generated at a meeting. The to-do items can be turned into Outlook tasks by using the Outlook Tasks feature.

All you need to do is click into a pertinent paragraph or to do item, and then click the Outlook Tasks button, which opens a drop-down of your Outlook Task options:

  • Today
  • Tomorrow
  • This Week
  • Next Week
  • No Date
  • Custom…

Then once you have created this Outlook Task, you’ll now be able to review your task list in Outlook.

When you open the task in Outlook, you now also get a link back to the OneNote page and when you double-click on that icon, it will open the OneNote file to the page that includes the task.

*This tip works in the desktop version of OneNote.
