Is there a way to bulk-add a list of tasks to Outlook?

If I have a list like the following, can it be used (e.g. copy/pasted) to create a task per line?

Task 1
Task 2
Task 3

And get the following (in any order):

You can import tasks from a .csv file.

I would suggest the following:

  • Export your current tasks as a .csv file so you know how the task fields are formatted as csv.

    1. "File" > "Open/Export" > select "Import/Export"

    2. In the "Import and Export Wizard" window, select "Export to a file", then click on "Next".

    3. Select "Comma Separated Values", then click "Next"

    4. In the "Export to a file" dialog, select a name for the csv file, then click "Next"

    5. In the "Export to a file" dialog, check the box for "Export 'Tasks'" from folder:...", then click "Finish".

  • Create a new csv file containing the tasks to be added using your favourite editor.

  • Import the new task csv file.

    You can simply use "Subject" as line 1 header if that is all you have – KCD Aug 3 '16 at 23:20
  • Expanding upon what @KCD said, for example, simply enter each task on a new line after Subject into a file named Tasks.CSV: Task 1 Task 2 Task 3 – zylstra Jul 19 '19 at 0:39
