  1. Missing features for Tasks in web version compared to desktop version

    you should try to add some of the features of the desktop (heavy) version of outlook into the web version. Such as more features for creating, sorting, assigning tasks in the Task application. The desktop version has a lot of features for that and the web version practically has none. Visually it is harder to keep track of the progress of tasks.

  2. Create option for reminders 2 B automatic when U mark an email 4 followup.

    I often mark emails and appointments for followup and when I do I ALWAYS want to set a reminder. Now that means I have to mark the item for followup and then click again to set the reminder. It would be great to have an option that lets you choose whether you want reminders to automatically be set for everything that you mark for followup. Thanks for considering this!

  3. Hide flagged emails in Inbox

    I have configured my Inbox on the Windows Desktop Outlook client to hide flagged emails, as I use the flag to defer emails for later action (Inbox Zero)

    Now that your reworked Microsoft To-Do can view flagged emails, I would love if you add an option to hide flagged emails in the inbox - the thought being "I flag the email to move it from my inbox to my to-do list"

  4. Personal Gantt Chart for tasks

    Arrange the personal tasks in a Gantt-like chart. Including estimated durations. This allows to plan task ahead and keep track on the possible delivery time of new tasks

  7. Add Density and Dark Mode to Tasks, and Better Utilization of Categories

    Referring to https://outlook.office.com/owa/?path=/tasks
    Your tasks section requires a lot of work. As it is right now, it's barely usable. The best thing about it is integration with flagged emails.
    1) "Categories" are almost useless, only providing a tiny colored box to each entry. Please have Category displayed as Text instead of just color
    2) How about adding the list of the categories in the Left Pane under "MY Tasks" for easy selection, as well as option for "ALL" categories.
    3) Or include categories in Filters, e.g. grouping by category, sorting by category. I thought about using folders instead of categories,…

  8. Adding folders to the "Tasks" section

    I think it would be useful if the "Task" tab could have folders and you could drag sections into the folders. This is a way to be more organized and find things easier instead of scrolling and searching for whatever it is you have to find. Hopefully you guys will consider this. Have a good day!

  9. Multi Select Sheet on Online Excel.

    When working with Excel Online, you should do a multi select button. When I work on the desktop App I can Select CTRL + Shift to multi select each sheet. Currently my work uses online excel so, this function is not available so I have 31 sheets that I need to paste things too and I have to go through each sheet and paste it 31 times.

  10. new view in Office 365 July 30, 2019

    The new view in Office 365 is clear and easy to use, but do not take away the ability to revert to the old view. Currently if you are in the new view the ability to go back to the old view is no longer available. Once the new view is not beta I would agree to this but currently there many functions that do not work in the new view. An example is All Users under the People function. This is present in the old view but not in the new view. The only function is Contacts. The problem…

  13. Sync Sharepoint Tasks

    It would be useful if I could sync my SharePoint task lists with my Outlook 365 tasks (and then with To-Do as that already syncs with Outlook 365 tasks). However, it seems SharePoint tasks will only sync to my Outlook Desktop app, when I click on "Connect to Outlook". I'd like to have my SharePoint task lists synced with my 365 Outlook tasks, just as they do with the Outlook Desktop app.

  15. One dashboard with emails, tasks and calendar

    Please put tasks on the same 'page' as the emails - similar to Google, having the tasks on another page is not user friendly. It's helpful to have one dashboard for emails, tasks, calendar review etc.

  16. Checklists within tasks (subtasks)

    Adding checklists to tasks so one topic can contain multiple tasks which can be checked as completed individually. Also the percentage of completion of each task can be derived from this.

  18. Share my TASKS list with branch

    Isn't there a way we can "share" our Task List with our branch? As a Branch Chief I would like my team to be able to see what TASKS I am focused on so they can support them.
