If you keep a list of tasks in Outlook, you can easily import all or some of its tasks into Microsoft Office Project.

  1. In Project, on the Task tab, in the Insert group, choose Task > Import Outlook Tasks

  2. In the Import Outlook Tasks dialog box, select the tasks that you want to import.

  3. Choose OK to import the tasks into the current project.

  4. In Project, schedule the tasks as needed.


    • Tasks are appended to any existing tasks in the current project. If the project does not contain tasks, a new task list is created.

    • Only the task name, notes, and duration are imported. Task dates are not imported.

    • When you import tasks from Outlook, no connection is maintained between Outlook and Project. The tasks are simply copied to your project.
