Can No Longer Opt Out of To-Do Tasks on Outlook on the Web

This notice from Microsoft:

“September 3, 2020: We will soon roll out the new tasks experience in Outlook on the web as we move from preview to general availability. With this change, we will remove the preview opt-in toggle; this means the classic tasks experience will no longer be available.”

I am still curious about what’s going to happen with future releases of Desktop Outlook, which is now the only way to see the older, and more powerful, legacy Tasks system in Outlook. We’ll see how that plays out.

    Not sure if this is related but since a while I can’t open mails attached to tasks from Outlook (Desktop) anymore: The To-Do app in Windows shows the attached mail. When I click on it I get a browser window with error HTTP 400.

    When I use Outlook (web) to create a To-Do from an email everything works fine.

    This is really bad and hurts my workflow when I have to search for the attached mail manually in Outlook. Switching to Outlook (web) is not yet an option for me since it lacks certain features, e. g. search folders.

    Yikes, just got the New Outlook toggle in Outlook for Mac. Tried to look at my tasks and now they are all online without any of my pre-build filters. Also, I can’t drop email to tasks anymore. Crying seems like an option right now.

    Any suggestions?
