Microsoft To Do and Android snuggle up with new shortcuts

To Do and Outlook just got a bit closer, thanks to new shortcuts.

What you need to know

  • Outlook on Android now has a shortcut to create tasks in Microsoft To Do.
  • The new option appears in the “Other options” menu in Outlook.
  • Microsoft To Do has a shortcut to pen tasks in Outlook.

Managing tasks just got a bit easier, thanks to a new shortcut on Microsoft Outlook on Android. The email app now has a “Create task” shortcut that instantly creates a task within Microsoft To Do. The feature was first spotted by HTNovo. We’ve also seen the new shortcut and tried it out.

Outlook doesn’t seem to have a mention of this feature in its Google Play Store listing. I have the feature on my phone on the non-beta version of Outlook, so it’s at least rolling out to some users on Android.

The feature is simple to use. You just click on the “Other options” menu with three dots while viewing an email and select “Create task.” The task within Microsoft To Do is then made from the subject line and body of the email.

When you view a created task within Microsoft To Do, you can use a shortcut to open it within Outlook. The two shortcuts work well in conjunction and make it easier to manage tasks from emails.
