How to create task for invitation email?

TK

In outlook I often get invitation emails for exchange calendar appointments. What I want to do ist create a task like "Decide if I take part." With a link to the original invitation email. But this is something that doesn't seem to work. When I select the email and then create task from email in the outlook plugin then the task will always be created for another email in the same folder but not for the invitation. Is there something special I have to follow to get this to work?

Greetings Tilmann

Hello Tilmann,

Please tell me - are these emails in any way different from regular mails? I mean, do they arrive as a "normal" message like any other or are they events generated by Outlook that link to the appointment in the calendar?

Please try to select such message without opening it and see if it helps.


Best regards,
David

After further investigation it looks more like an invitation event of an appointment that is displayed in the email inbox in contrast to a regular email. So I suppose it is not supported to link these to tasks. This would be a great addition!

Tilmann,

Thank you for clarifying, we'll look into this and maybe we can implement it in future updates :-)
