Looking for an email-in solution for tasks on Visual Studio Online? We've got the perfect thing for you! This Zap will provide you with a custom email address; once it's been set up, send an email to it and a new work item will automatically be created for you. All the tools to keep everything moving forward, as fast as new information comes up!

Note: this integration uses Zapier's native email service. If you want to use your existing email account to trigger work items, try Zaps with email apps such as Gmail, Mailgun, SMTP or Mandrill.

How It Works

  1. An email is received at the custom email address
  2. Zapier automatically creates a Visual Studio Online work item
