Can I view "Add email as task" from MS Outlook in Todoist online?


I have downloaded and use Todoist in MS Outlook 2007. I regularly use the "Add email as task" function. These appear on Todoist online but clicking on them does not show the email content - that only works from within MS Outook 2007. Is it possible to view the email content via Todoist online?

Hello Andy,

unfortunately, links to messages located in Outlook cannot be opened though the web-app. However, if you would use GMail and add emails using one of our browser plugins, they would be accessible from anywhere and redirect you directly to the particular message in GMail.

Hi Andy

Would it solve your problem if the email's body was attached as a note?

Will this function not allow recall of attached Outlook emails from the plug-in? The plug-in was allowing recall of the attached Outlook emails until just a few days ago.

Hello Susan,

all emails added as tasks with the Outlook plugin will still open if you access them through the plugin.

If you can't access them, please tell us:
- Which version of Outlook are you using?
- What operating system are you using?
- Do you use an Exchange Server?

Best regards,
