I’ve been trying to get OF3 to work with outlook on the Mac such that I could do some kind of drag and drop from Outlook mail to create an OF3 task that will link back to the outlook message. Until today, I’ve had no luck. I was messing around with it again today and found something that gets me most of the way there, and apologies if this is something everybody else but me knew already…
If you are in outlook mail and bring up the OF3 quick entry widget (ctrl-option-space on my machine) and click on the little notes icon on the left side, then you can drag an outlook mail message and drop it into the newly opened notes space and it will create an icon with the title of the email. Then just enter something for the OF3 task name up top and whatever other attributes (project, due date, etc.) you need to organize it and press Save.
When you open the task in OF3 and double click on the link in the notes field, it will take you right back to the original message.
I’m on Monterey 12.4 and running the current version of Outlook Mac and OF3.
