Workers can now connect their Outlook account to MeisterTask, and save their emails efficiently into their task management system, without ever leaving Outlook.
Munich, Germany (PRWEB) September 08, 2017
German software developer MeisterLabs is proud to announce a new integration between its flagship product MeisterTask and Microsoft Outlook. After releasing a MeisterTask add-in for Outlook’s web and desktop versions earlier this year, MeisterLabs now follows up with an add-in for Outlook on iOS and Android that enables users to turn emails into tasks with just a few taps.
In 2017, more email is read on mobile than on desktop email clients*. Many professionals use their commute to work to respond to urgent messages and to get a head start in their effort towards inbox zero. To ensure that important action items contained within emails don’t fall through the cracks, workers can now connect their Outlook account to MeisterTask, and save those emails efficiently into their task management system, without ever leaving Outlook.
“Add-ins for Microsoft Outlook are a great way to extend the functionality of your inbox and connect it to other tools you already use,” said Till Vollmer, co-founder and managing director at MeisterLabs. “The MeisterTask Add-in provides an efficient and incredibly convenient integration between our task manager and Outlook, enabling users to move emails that contain tasks straight into one of their MeisterTask projects and collaborate on them with their team members.”
With a few quick taps, workers can select which project and section the task should be inserted in. The add-in automatically turns the email’s subject line into the task name, while the email’s content is added as the task description. When they’re ready, workers can then switch to MeisterTask’s web, desktop, or mobile app to further edit the task details, assign the task to a team member, or to add tags, checklist items or a due date to it.
“As more and more professionals read and manage emails on their mobile device, the importance of integrations between Microsoft Outlook and other productivity tools increases,” said Rob Howard, director, Microsoft Office Ecosystem at Microsoft Corp. “We are pleased that MeisterTask now integrates with Outlook on all platforms and devices, as it provides our mutual customers with an intuitive workflow for managing tasks that arise from emails, no matter where they are.”
Instructions on how to install the MeisterTask Add-in for Microsoft Outlook can be found on the MeisterLabs blog.
