  7. 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.

  8. Task notifications - Snooze shouldn't change Reminder time

    For recurring tasks, every time I need to use Snooze to have them pop back up and remind me again, it changes the setting in the recurring task for next time - which is NOT helpful. If I want the initial reminder to happen at 8 a.m. on the 10th of the month, having it switch to 2:38 pm for the next one, because I've used the snooze feature means I don't get my reminders in a timely manner. Can't something be done about this?

  10. Integrate Microsoft To-Do including the UI into desktop Outlook

    Microsoft To-Do is a great app with it's own unique UI. Please integrate this UI into desktop Outlook or provide a standalone Microsoft To-Do app that launches when you click on tasks in desktop Outlook.

  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.

  18. Add a status update to a task

    A more full featured task management tool would really make Microsoft Office an indespensible business productivity tool. Right now the task management tool is almost a useless tool. The two must need feature are delegating tasks which already is a popular request on this forum.

    The second must have feature is a status update feature. This feature would allow a user to provide a date/time stamp status update for their own task. Additionally, and even more critical, would be to allow a user, who was delegated a task, the ability to provide a status update on a task that was…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
