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:
- This Week
- Next Week
- No Date
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.
