  5. Sorting Tasks by Reminder Time

    In Outlook on Windows (2007 and 2016 and I believe also 2010, 2013 but I am less familiar with those versions), you are able to sort tasks by Reminder Time.

    However on the Mac 2011 and 2016 versions this does not appear to be possible. You can sort by the fact that they do / don't have a reminder but not by the time of the reminder

    I user the reminder time to assist doing the tasks in the order I have set them out and getting a view of what is next and what is coming up for rest…

  6. Add Tasks follow up options

    Add these “Follow up” options for Tasks: “in 3/4/5/6 days”. Also/alternatively, make “Custom date” selectable for multiple listed tasks simultaneously.

    Hi! Tasks and Notes do already sync for exchange accounts, do you mean Outlook.com? If so, details on how to sync calendar, contacts, notes and tasks for Outlook.com are here –
    This feature has been enabled since our October 2015 update (15.15). For details, see: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Outlook-2016-for-Mac-supports-the-new-Outlook-com-experience-d21c77ad-5cbe-41bb-bd56-f7b62768335d?omkt=en-us&ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

  9. iCloud syncing Notes & Reminders (Tasks)

    Is it possible to include iCloud syncing with Notes and Reminders (Tasks) as well in Outlook 2016 for Mac? I see CalDAV and CardDAV syncing or something to like it is being considered for Outlook 2016 for Mac to sync Contacts and Calendars with iCloud.

  10. Please integrate Outlook for Mac with Office 365 Planner

    The tasks from Office 365 Planner should be tightly integrated in Outlook for Mac including the Charts & Boards view. This would fuel the collaboration and usage of "Groups" in Outlook for Mac. Today you need to use multiple tools to achieve your goal.

  13. Change order of tasks shown when 'ordered by due date'

    Currently, when you order the tasks by due date (most urgent on top), it puts the 'no due date' taks on top and then by order of immediate due date to later due date. Most of the tasks with 'no due date' are not important and should be at the end, or at least the user should have an option somewhere to configure the urgency of tasks with 'no due dates'. Current work around is to assign a due date for a year ahead or so. Please give an option to show 'no due date' tasks after the ones with…

  14. Improve tasks to be more like the windows side

    It would be great if you improve tasks to be more like the windows side. Grouping by category, giving delegates access, and adding the ability to include attachments in a task would be great.

  16. Drag and drop task to calendar to schedule the completion of the task

    On the Windows based version of Outlook it is possible to block a specific time for the completion of a task just by dragging and dropping the task to the calendar.
    So it is possible to get tasks scheduled very easily.

  17. Task names in Outlook for Mac should match task names in Windows Outlook

    When I rename a task in Windows Outlook, the task's old name is still the one displayed in Outlook for Mac. I like to rename tasks like (priority 1) followed by the task name, or (priority two) followed by task name, and when I do that on my Windows Outlook my Mac version of Outlook never displays the task's new name.

  19. be able to create tasks and notes from Apple Mac for Google Mail

    I am using Outlook on Mac for Google Mail but currently I am unable to create tasks or notes. It would be great if we could use that feature too as that would keep it all centralised in one place as opposed to having to use different tools.
