Part 3. Synchronize a SharePoint task list with Outlook 2010
- In your browser, navigate to the SharePoint site containing the Task list or Project task list you want to synchronize.
- Click the name of the task or project task list on the Quick Launch, or click Site Actions, click View All Site Content, and then in the appropriate list section, click the name of the task or project list.
NOTE: A SharePoint site can be significantly modified in appearance and navigation. If you cannot locate an option, such as a command, button, or link, contact your SharePoint administrator.
- In the ribbon, on the List tab, in the Connect & Export group, click Open in Outlook.
- When prompted to connect the SharePoint Contacts list to Outlook, click OK.
In Outlook 2010 the tasks are added under Other Tasks in the Navigation Pane, and in the To-Do Bar.
NOTE: You can work with your tasks from your SharePoint site similar to the way you work with your Outlook tasks. You can drag or copy tasks back and forth between the folders for Outlook and the SharePoint site. However, recurring tasks and task requests from Outlook are converted to regular tasks on the SharePoint site.TIP: After you connect a Task list or Project Task list to Outlook, you can send a sharing message to other team members that invite them to connect to the tasks. Right-click the list name in Outlook, and then click Share tasks list name. This creates an e-mail message that contains a link and a command to connect to the list.
