How-to Sync Outlook Online with Project Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • How can I sync Outlook with project tasks?

    We use all Microsoft Online (Office 356) applications (including SharePoint and Outlook-Exchange).

    On Project Web Access Online, Tasks, there is a button for "Sync to Outlook" that is disabled (grayed-out).

    I have not found any controls in Project Online, "PWA Settings". I've researched enabling Outlook sync and found several articles stating it has been deprecated.

    "... In addition, a Tasks menu option was removed from the SharePoint Online menu, and the Tasks page is subject to removal after one year. The Sync to Outlook feature in SharePoint Online is also subject to removal by Microsoft, although it, too, will continue to work for a year's time.

    Thanks in advance

    This feature was removed from Project Online, and the button should no longer be there.  It does nothing, and I suspect it will be removed eventually.  So, ignore it and move on.  Hope this helps.
