  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  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.

  14. Option to automatically assign reminders for tasks based on due date

    When you flag an email for follow up, a reminder should automatically set for the due date. Currently you have to go through the motion of adding the reminder and picking the date/time.

    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

  18. Add Subtasks!!!

    Ability to add subtasks nested under each parent task, that can be shown or hidden, and individually completed/checked.

  19. 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…

  20. Need to be able to accept task from other users in Outlook for Mac 2016

    Task sent from my team members are sent to me in an iCal format. There is no way to accept the task (that I know of). Therefore you cannot accept the task. This is frustrating.
