  1. Improve Recurrence or Repeat feature to include recur or repeat after last complete.

    I remember in previous versions for Windows you could setup a repeating task to repeat or recur from the date you completed it and skip all the days missed in between the date it was due and the date you completed it.

    So if a task was due on a specific day, and it is supposed to repeat everyday, but you missed a few days, you won't have to click complete for the days missed until the current day. It would recur after the last date completed.

    Just as an example (maybe not a good one but...) if you had…

  4. Create/edit tasks from directly from the tasklist

    It'd be great to have ability to create/edit tasks directly from the tasklist (without opening the new task dialog).

  5. 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…

  6. Fixing the category sort in Outlook for Mac 2016

    Fixing the category sort in Outlook for Mac 2016 or adding in a Schedule Plus Priority field like there is in the PC version.

    This is real negative for those of us who want to use categories to help prioritize our work.

    In advance, thank you for considering.

  7. 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).

  11. 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!

  13. To make more friendly the way to share files

    I had to use apple Mail to share a link from my one drive. Not possible to do it with outlook.
    Actually I upload all them to dropbox.com because is easier than one drive in this specific case.

  15. For Outlook 2016, ability to quickly(1 or 2 key strokes (like Control 2 for Tomorrow)) advance the task due date by a day (Due date +1).

  18. Green color for completed icon

    Hi, if I flag an Item and mark it as completed afterwards, the icon is grey. However grey is not really intensiv and I can hardly see which mails are (not) completed while scrolling through my hundreds of emails. I would love to have the checked symbol in a green color. What do you think? Is there already a setting/idea I'm missing?

  19. Move e-mail and attach as task just as the windows version of outlook allows

    I work on the 2 rule.... If it takes longer than 2 minutes, I task it. The problem is when I am on my Mac, I can't right click drag to tasks and "Move as attachment". I can do this perfectly well on my Windows client of Outlook, but the function is just not there on Mac. Thanks

  20. Create plugin to allow Task Allocation and Acceptance

    We're years into the Outlook 365 for mac version. Why is there not a plugin to allow task generation and assignment?

    In this time you've produced loads of other compatibility plugins such is the Customer Relations Manager but surely this is higher priority?
