This article will look at the method to extract your Outlook tasks list to an Excel file. If you often need to print the elaborate task details, it is suggested to export them to Excel in advance.
As a regular user of Outlook, I’ve served it not only as an email client but also a task manager. I created multiple Outlook tasks. But if I don’t open my computer, I totally cannot remember them. In order to avoid this situation, I prefer to print the task lists. Instead of printing in Outlook, I prefer to export the tasks to an Excel file firstly and then print in Excel. Now I will introduce how to export them to Excel.
