8.49. How Can I Generate a Task from Other Outlook Items?

Outlook makes it possible to quickly and easily create a task from other Outlook items, such as e-mails, notes, and appointments. To do this, drag the item (click the item with the left mouse button and hold down the button) that you want to generate a task from, and drop it onto the Tasks button in the Navigation Pane.

Outlook automatically creates a new task using the details of the item that you just dropped. For example, if you drop an e-mail onto the Tasks button in the Navigation Pane, a new task is created, with the subject of the e-mail becoming the subject of the task and the body of the e-mail, including details such as the From and To addresses, becoming the body of the task. Similarly, you could drop a note onto the Tasks button in the Navigation Pane to create a new task based on the note.
