Syncing SharePoint tasks with Outlook 365 tasks

It would be useful if I could sync my SharePoint task lists with my Outlook 365 tasks (and then with To-Do as that already syncs with Outlook 365 tasks). However, it seems SharePoint tasks will only sync to my Outlook Desktop app, when I click on "Connect to Outlook". I'd like to have my SharePoint task lists synced with my 365 Outlook tasks, just as they do with the Outlook Desktop app.

Thank you for your consideration.

Hi Mrobins8,

It’s not feasible to display/sync the SharePoint online task list in Outlook web app (OWA). We can only connect the task list to Outlook desktop application.

We understand, it’s more convenient if users can view their site task lists in OWA. In this scenario, we suggest you provide your feedback in Outlook UserVoice. UserVoice is the best way to give the feedback to Product Group as it’s actively monitored by them and many new features have been implemented from our customers feedback.

We appreciate your understanding.
