How can I add a new task to an online project from outlook RRS feed

  • At the moment, I can see tasks in outlook.

    I can modify them.

    But cant add a new one. Seems strange behaviour.

  • Hi Dave TQM,

    You cannot (that is add a new task to Project Online from Outlook).

    You need to edit the task in Project Online or Project Pro.

  • hi,

    You can see & edit your assignments and tasks in Exchange via your Exchange client i.e. Outlook, Outlook Web App, or your mobile phone, even when you are offline.  But adding is not possible.

  • Thanks both of you for the answer.

    This functionality would be useful.

    The same issue occurs in sharepoint task lists. You can sync to outlook and change in outlook, but not add new tasks.

  • Hi,

    I would recommend if you can search for an App on SharePoint Store which can help you add task to SharePoint lists without going to site.
