  3. 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.

  4. Tasks Printing - To Do List

    I used to use the PC version of Outlook. There was a way to print all Tasks so that it would print like a To Do List - please bring this to the Mac version of Outlook.

    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

  6. 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…

  8. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. Outlook and Task List integration with SharePoint

    Outlook and Task List integration with SharePoint. I think this goes along with the Proper Sharepoint Integration, but List should be awesome to see in a Mac users Outlook. Even if there was a work around. where they could use a Windows Terminal Server session to link it to their outlook. Then it would just be viewable from then on in Mac Outlook.

  13. Kanban visualization for tasks

    To manage the tasks could be a good idea to use Kanban pannel to control the status of every task (to do, doing, done).

  17. Close meeting reminder window if I connect to Skype for Business

    I shouldn't have to 'dismiss' the reminder window after the meeting. I didn't dismiss it, I joined!
