Create new to-dos in Outlook

With Wunderlist for Outlook you can quickly create new to-dos. We want to support your existing workflows so we have a bunch of possibilities to work with Wunderlist. Choose the ones that fit your workflow:

The QuickCreate Menu is intended to - as the name already says - quickly create a new to-do in Wunderlist. It will not have any reference to an email.

It is available in the top toolbar of important Outlook pages:

  • In the email inbox
  • Calendar Overview
  • Task Overview

Just select the list where you want to add the to-do

Afterwards you have an optimized and fast input dialog to enter the to-do title.

The dialog is input optimized, so you can directly start typing and press enter to submit the to-do. 

That's it. Two clicks and you are done. Quick and simple.


    • Use the button on top of your inbox or the email window
    • Right-Click on an email
    • Select text in an email and right-click
    • Select a list of bullet points

 This is explained in more detail here.

To get started, switch to the Outlook task view and select the list in which the new to-do(s) should be created. 

To create a new to-do, just click "Click here to add a new task" and enter your to-do title. Hit enter to create it. After a few seconds (~5), the category "Wunderlist" will be added to your new to-do, which indicates, that it has successfully been created on Wunderlist. The Wunderlist sidebar will now be available when you open the task.
