Enable activities to use Set Regarding lookup in App for Outlook

In App for Outlook the Set Regarding lookup lets you link an email message, appointment, or task to a specific app row. To use the Set Regarding lookup, activities need to be enabled for the table.

Most out-of-box (OOB) tables have activities enabled by default, which cannot be disabled. For custom tables that you create, make sure to enable activities to use the Set Regarding lookup in App for Outlook. Once activities are enabled, it cannot be disabled for any table.
