Apologies if this has been covered somewhere in the forum.

I would like to create a job list in SharePoint (essentially a custom list). I would like to update the list via Outlook Task list, if possible, my understanding is that the outlook sync will be removed from SharePoint 2013.

Is there a way to "show the custom list" in outlook and have user edit it either as a outlook app , or direct via outlook task.

What I was thinking : 1. Create an OWA app via Napa that installs to outlook, when user opens mail there is the typical application tab , then when click opens or loads the a form. This seems to sound easy but really turns out to be not , unless I'm mistaken. 2. Link or write custom code that sync the tasks.

Any other ideas will be helpful.



outlook synch will be removed only from SharePoint Online. Not from SP on premise.

You can still synch a contact list (SP) with contacts in Outlook.

  • I believe OP's question was indeed intended for SP Online, since he is considering Napa, which is a Office 365 development tool.

  • It would be useful for everybody if OPs would specify that, after all SP on premise is still present in 70-80% of situations.

  • People do usually tag the version. I've made that bad assumption many times Oct 9 '14 at 16:06
