I have a task list in SharePoint that I have synced to my Outlook. I can view the SP tasks in Outlook under My Tasks and I can create new tasks in Outlook. What I can seem to figure out is how to display the tasks from SharePoint in the To-Do Bar on the right side of Outlook (see below).

enter image description here

Does anyone know how to do this?

Edit - I am currently using SharePoint 2016 and Outlook/Office 2016 Professional

  • I've found when connecting a regular sharepoint 2010 task list to outlook 2010, the items assigned to me appear in the to do, and the complete list (assigned or not) is simply 100% sync'd with outlook/sharepoint. – Hardik Jun 8 '16 at 20:10
  • BTW Which SharePoint version are you using? – Hardik Jun 8 '16 at 20:10
  • My synced SP tasks show under Tasks, but they do not show up in the To Do list. Everything is OOTB by the way, so the Task List is just a basic list with nothing modified – hoffie4 Jun 8 '16 at 20:22
  • Which SharePoint version are you using? as it is working same as you want in SharePoint 2010. – Hardik Jun 8 '16 at 20:23
  • Per my edit, I'm using SP 2016 and Outlook/Office 2016 Professional – hoffie4 Jun 8 '16 at 20:24
