Creating a Task from an Email

Outlook for Mac

SFU Mail provides an integration between the Flags feature and the Tasks module. When you flag a message, it is then included in your task list. Find instructions below on how to utilize this integration in the Outlook 2016 for Mac desktop application.

Creating a Task From an Email

1. Select the email that you would like to create a task from. Click the Follow Up button in the ribbon. Optionally, you can choose a date/time from the drop-down menu on this button. If you do not want to assign a date to it, just click the button.

2. That message will now have a small flag icon on the right-hand side of it in the message list. 

3. Within your task module, that message will now be in Flagged Items as a task.
