  1. allow for complete freedom to manually sort tasks according to needs

    Sometimes you don't need/want set Due dates or times, meanwhile new developments in a work day/week are cause for reprioritizing and changing the order in which you digest and move through your tasks. A task list can be an at-a-glance organizational guide and being able to remind yourself what you need to work on next by moving that to the top of the list is extremely useful.

    Having to change dates or times relative to other tasks seems like an extra step that maybe should not be mandatory for processing information.

  2. 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.

  3. allow one to create a new task by dragging an email to the task icon

    In earlier versions of Outlook for Windows I used to be able to create a new task by simply dragging an email to the task bar. Doing so would open a new task window and I could use the content of the original email to set values like due dates. It was really handy

  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.

  7. classifying tasks

    I would suggest that you could sort tasks by more than one criterion, just as you can in Oulook for Windows

  8. Add the ability to choose which account a task is automatically created in

    I use tasks on my iphone, and the task manager on Outlook to coordinate my tasks with my email. I need to ensure that when I create a task, it will automatically go into the account that will sync with tasks on my iphone. This would help greatly!

  9. Let me create OR conditions in Task Smart Folders on Outlook 2016 for Mac

    I cannot use Outlook Tasks without the ability to create OR conditions in Smart Folders. I really need to see any task that is High Priority OR due today OR overdue in a single smart folder.

  11. Drag and drop email to task and calender as attachment in email- format

    In the PC-version you can drag and drop an email to create a task or appointment and get the email as an attached file. You can then open the email from the task or calender and use it as an email again.

  12. Tasks

    I'd like it if when I right click on the Dock icon of Outlook I can create a new tasks. Also, I'd like it if I could see my tasks without having to click on the bottom button to go to another screen. Show a little corner of the screen with the tasks listed like Outlook 2011.

  14. Add task duration field and automatic planification of tasks in Calendar

    Create an additional field in the task creation form that would allow to set the expected duration of the task. Setting this field automatically set “buzy periods” in Outlook calendar, according to the tasks’ durations

  18. 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.
