To-Do Bar / Calendar pane in Outlook for MacOS

Cian Walker 31 Reputation points

Hi - I had the To-Do/calendar side pane showing right of the email reader pane for a couple of days (even had the three dots menu. to adjust for day, week, month. etc) but this morning Outlook asked me to. sign in/add my account again and now I cannot find the option to display it, with many online resources even claiming it's not even available for Outlook on macOS...but I know I'm not imagining it - please help!

    Same issue here on Outlook for Mac - no tasks view in the calendar/task pane, and no ability to create a task from an email. Please help.

    Hi @Cian Walker ,

    Welcome to our forum!

    Do you mean the task pane as shown in the below figure?

    If so, as I know, the feature is available in New Outlook for Mac. Please go to View>Task Pane on the top.


    If you can't find the "Task Pane" option, maybe you are currently in legacy outlook, please turn on the New Outlook button to switch to New Outlook for Mac first.

    For more information and features about Outlook please refer to: The new Outlook for Mac.

    Hope the above help!

    Is this issue being fixed? This functionality is key to the To Do app actually being of any use to me. To be lacking integration of the apps seems poor, especially after scrolling through various message feeds of people having the same query...after investing in 365 its a shame feedback isn't being taken on board.
