  • No functionality Out of fthe Box, currently. This feature was deprecated a while ago: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2998445/the-sync-to-outlook-button-and-the-tasks-link-are-missing-in-sharepoint-online

    there could be some third party products, but I have not tested them: Ex: http://www.avepoint.com/assets/pdf/AvePoint_Task_and_Calendar_Sync_Brochure.pdf

  • Hi 

    I have figured out how to sync my Project Online tasks with my outlook calendar, although it isnt that straight forward and there seems to be an issue with timezones as the events are out by one day compared with my task list.

    It works by using Microsoft flow which grabs the Project sharepoint task list and then creates and action which adds this to an existing or new calendar in outlook.

    When using microsoft flow i had to type in the sharepoint list address as well as the  list ID which is in the format of {5E3XXXX-XXXX-4186-AXXX-FXXXXX3B561}. I got this from the sharepoint editor.

    If you do a bit of search on MS Flow and how to use it you should be able to do it.

    cheers
