Sending Emails from Outlook to DropTask

When you transform an email from Outlook into DropTask, the email subject will automatically become the task title and the body of the email will become the task description.


Multiple task creation

With the ability to select and transform up to 50 emails at once, you really can save time and manage your mail when you integrate your Outlook account with DropTask. To select multiple emails at once, simple hold down the 'Ctrl' button on your keyboard while selecting the emails you wish to send to DropTask. Alternatively, select all emails from a folder by holding down 'Ctrl' and the letter 'A' on your keyboard.


Categorise your Emails

You can choose to send your email as a task to your existing DropTask Task Board. You also have the ability to create a New Task Board to send your emails to. By sending your Outlook emails into your existing Task Boards and Categories, you'll maintain your organisation and be one step ahead of your tasks.


File Attachments

If you're a DropTask Business user, when you select an email to send to DropTask, any attachments will automatically be sent as well. You can easily remove attachments and choose which ones you would like to send by ticking and unticking individual items from the attachment selection box. Please note that the maximum attachment size is 20MB, and any attachments that exceed this limit will not be sent.
