As we add more and more settings to customize Wunderlist for Outlook to your needs, here is an explanation of all our possibilities:
- Show Alerts: Enabled by default.
If you get new todos from coworkers we'll notify you about that with a small alert.
- Show Welcome Popup:
On Outlook start we show a popup that explains the main features. Can be either turned off in the popup itself or with this setting
- Keep completed Outlook tasks: Disabled by default.
Usually we remove completed to-dos from Outlook to keep it simple. If you'd like to keep completed Wunderlist to-dos in Outlook, you can make a mark here.
Please note: completed tasks will be frozen to the time of completion. That means, if you change the to-do on Wunderlist after completion, this will not be reflected to the Outlook task! Only if you uncomplete the task, Outlook will refresh accordingly again.
- Add Tags(#) as task Categories: Enabled by default.
In Wunderlist you can structure tasks with #tags. If there is a #tag in the to-do title, you can find other to-dos with that tag.
Wunderlist for Outlook can sync these #tags as task categories. This allows you to quickly find other tasks with the same category as well.
Example: you could tag to-dos with #todo, #improvement and #bug. This would lead to Outlook tasks with this categories and you can find all improvements more easily.
- Add Category to Emails: Disabled by default.
If you create a to-do based on an email, this option would add a "Wunderlist" category to the email. This let's you quickly find mails that have been turned into Wunderlist todos.
- Always add Email as .msg file: Disabled by default.
If you create a to-do based in an email, this will upload the email as .msg file to the wunderlist todo.
- E-Mail list: default inbox.
Default list for to-dos that have been created based on an email.
- Quick-Create list: default inbox.
Default list for to-dos that have been created with the QuickCreate Button in Outlook.
- Sync Lists: default set by user during initial setup.
Select lists that should be synced with Wunderlist.
Please note: We will not delete your Outlook tasks. So if you want to remove a list from Outlook, you should dismark it here for further syncs and delete the whole list (task folder) manually.
