FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

  • Q: Why can't I sync my Pipeline tasks in Outlook for Mac?
  • A: Currently, Outlook for Mac (2016 and 2011) does not offer the ability to subscribe to internet calendars. As a workaround, users can login to Outlook on the Web (outlook.com) to sync their Paperless Pipeline tasks to their calendar:
