Mobile access for Outlook Tasks!
The new Exchange sync between Desktop and Outlook.com is fantastic and makes Tasks great, but how useful is it when you're on your phone? Let us access those Tasks! Mobile First, Cloud First!
What happened to "Tasks"? I used this function regularly!
Why aren't my imported calendars displaying in any sort of order? In the old interface they were alphabetical. Here they're a jumble, with no option to re-sort. Ugh!
How can I share tasks? This feature has been disabled.

A good task application for my Windows Phone 10. Just an e-mail for notification does not suffice.

It's ridiculous that Microsoft removed Exchange sync for tasks from Windows 10 Mobile. Please bring it back and make it work with Outlook.com!
Sebastian Madsen commented
The ability to automatically transfer tasks unto the calendar.

Hi, I like the new Outlook.com web client. But I wish the Outlook Tasks would provide more functionality: 1.) Have multiple task lists and be able to move tasks between lists, e.g. have shopping list, packing list for the next vacation, other to-do lists. 2.) Be able to share and collaborate on the lists, e.g. a shopping list where also my girlfriend can add items when I go to the grocery store. 3.) Manage tasks and lists in the mobile app for Android (at least it wasn't available, when I had it installed last time). Good success! Thomas

I was about to post about this but Mr. Nolan it seems beat me to it. I do agree though, please allow access to our Tasks list from mobile devices. I love accessing my Outlook.com email when I am on the go from my smartphone and the web address Outlook.com but I wish I could also access my tasks that I have to do when I am on the go. I understand that there is an Outlook app for my device but still, from the screenshots it includes, there is still no way of accessing my tasks, Microsoft and the Outlook team. Please, please, add this to the app and to the mobile access version of the website. Thank you. :)

Tasks! I was SOOOOO excited with the new Outlook web - I even downloaded the Outlook app to switch my email control since I just KNEW the tasks would be tied to my email and available. I would soon be able to delete and NOT subscribe to a separate task app! NOPE! There is NOT tasks in the Outlook mail app yet? OR an app at all! So nothing will tie the tasks on the web to my phone app of any kind! Back to my task app - AND I ditched the Outlook app as well. HELP US!!!
This has reference to the outlook tasks tab on outlook.live.com i.e https://outlook.live.com/owa/?id=64855&path=/tasks.
My suggestion is please roll out an app for android/iOS/windows phone that will sync tasks created on the mobile/ desktop. You may name it Outlook tasks !!
MS garage has already launched a to-do app called "Parchi". My suggestion is pl launch an independent app for Outlook Tasks as a web version is also available. People today use a smartphone more often than laptops. Tasks created on the phone while travelling will be available when I open my laptop after I reach office helping me save time. Food for thought eh??
