Outlook for Mac Drag and Drop Email to Task Conversion

I’ve been meaning to mention this for a while.

Starting in late 2017 Microsoft started releasing a new version of Outlook Mac 2016 and Outlook for Office 365 for Mac that enables drag-and-drop conversion of emails to tasks.

This feature is similar to what is available in the Windows version of Outlook, but no option is provided to include an attachment in the converted task.

I’ll write more about this in the future.

    Missing attachments is a huge gap.

    Has there been any update to this or are there any workarounds for Mac? This is a feature I used constantly to enable me to keep my tasks in check and my inbox clear. The only way I can see to do it is to create a task and then manually drag and drop the email to the task, but this is very cumbersome, particularly when there is no task bar to the right of the screen. Would be so grateful for advice. Thanks!
