In MS Office 2011 there's the option to select "Meeting" when an email is highlighted which adds it to the calendar. I then cancel the meeting but keep the email viewable in calendar. This option is awesome (in my opinion).

Does anyone know how to do this in Office 365 or if there is an app for this?

You can 'flag' any email to make it a task, and set up a reminder for it. If it's not good enough for you, you can use a Macro as described here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/synergist/archive/2007/05/09/creating-an-outlook-appointment-based-on-an-email-message.aspx

VB code hasnt really changed since 2007, so you can use this, or the updated code you can find in one of the comments there. Note that by default the Macro security settings on Outlook 2013 will not allow you to run this.

Also, as noted in the comments below the blog post, you can easily have the same functionality without the macro, by simply dragging the email onto the calendar icon. Or even make it a quick step.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

FYI I'm not talking about Outlook 2013 as in the installed application I'm specifically talking about Office 365, the web based product.

I believe but could be wrong that Office 365 is a subscription rather than a product. With said subscription you will get the latest version of products included in your subscription.

Therefore, a current subscription for "Office 365 Home" will get you the latest versions of Excel, Word and Powerpoint (and maybe others), the latest version being Office 2013.

Office 365 subs that include Outlook will therefore include Outlook 2013

Thanks
