SOLVED: How to Sync See Edit TASKS On a Samsung Galaxy S3 S4 S5 or S6

Modern Samsung Android devices do not have a dedicated TASKS app.  The short answer is that TASKS now appear in a tab in the S PLANNER Calendar app.

How to Sync, Edit or View TASKS from Outlook on your Samsung Galaxy Product (S3, S4, S5, S6, Note,…)

STEP ONE: Turn on Syncing

‘Sync Task’ is on by default, but you might want to check all the same:

  • Go into EMAIL (Yes, Email)tasks-samsung-galaxy-s3-s4-s5-s6-note
  • Click the menu button (bottom right beside the physical ‘home’ button)
  • Click SETTINGS
  • Click on the accounts in question
  • Scroll to the bottom and click the MORE SETTINGS link
  • Scroll to the very bottom and ensure that SYNC TASK is on

STEP TWO: Launch Calendar

  • Go to S PLANNER (the Calendar app)
  • Click the TASK tab (bottom right)
  • Do what you will!

    In 4.4.2, layout also different, but tasks are there. The tabs include one called Agenda, touch that and theres then a button that you can select Events or Tasks.

    I have a s5 on lollypop & the S Planner has a very different format than that shown here. Namely: there is no task tab. So how does one call up tasks or see deleted ones?

      I am aware of this limitation in Lollypop and I do not think there is a solution. I spoke with Samsung Business Support (not a public number) and they indicated they did not have a workaround. 🙁
