    I use a windows phone and use its default calendar app to input tasks which syncs with outlook.

    Is there an app out there which syncs with outlook tasks and has a live tile to go with it?

    Thanks.

    If you have tasks in your Calendar, setup up your Account in the Modern UI Mail App and it will show all of the Calendar Items in the default Calendar Live Tile and Lock Screen.

    Yep, every account you setup in Mail automatically syncs with the Calendar App and People Hub. So now your Live Tiles and Notifications will work.

    Yes, that's true. However, Bulls96's original question was regarding "TASKS." I too am seeking a "live tile" solution for tasks.

    OP adds his tasks to his Calendar, so for them to show up on the Live Tile Calendar he needs to add his account to Mail, as Outlook does not have a Live Tile.

    rabilancia was right. I was looking for an outlook tasks app that has live tile.

    Sorry I missed that, it appeared you entered your task into your Outlook Calendar. I'm not aware of a Task Tile that will pull from Exchange. Calendar would be the way I would do it.
