MeisterTask for Outlook turns your emails into tasks and automatically inserts them in the project and section of your choice. The email’s subject line will be used as the task name, and the email’s content will turn into the task description. However, you can easily edit both inside the add-in (before the export) as well as in MeisterTask (after the export).
The MeisterTask for Outlook add-in is free and works in Outlook 2013 or later, Outlook 2016 for Mac, as well as Outlook on the Web.
