Microsoft To-Do Now Keeps Track of Your Flagged Emails

Posted on March 13, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Microsoft, with 8 Comments

Microsoft is rolling out a new update to the Microsoft To-Do app on Windows 10 and on the web. The new update to the app introduces support for Flagged Email, which is a new feature that essentially tracks your email and adds them to a list within Microsoft To-Do.

The feature only works with Office 365 work or school accounts for the time being.

Once you update the app and login to Microsoft To-Do with a work or school account, you will be asked whether you want the new featured. Once enabled, the feature will automatically show your flagged emails from your Outlook account as a list on the app. And the list will also show up on Microsoft To-Do apps for iOS and Android.

When you flag emails on Outlook, they will automatically show up within To-Do with some added details. It will include a preview of the email’s text, as well as a link to open the email in Outlook. Right now, the link simply opens in a browser, instead of opening within the Mail app in Windows 10, for example. Removing a flagged email/task from To-Do also unflags it on Outlook, so it’s pretty neat.

It’s available with Microsoft To-Do version 1.52 on Windows 10.
