  1. More options for Tasks in Hosted Exchange environment in Outlook 2016

    We don't see any focus by Microsoft on the task functionality for years. Yes you acquired wunderlist but never integrated it into your proven business tools like Microsoft Outlook Client. Also I constantly have task sync issues where changes on one device don't sync to the other one even though using hosted exchange with the most recent version. In addition it is shocking to notice Microsoft dropped tasks functionality on Windows Phone 10. This is hard to believe in regards to it as a business tool. Now Android and iOS have much better exchange tasks support then Windows.

          • Options to create or arrange tasks in sequence.

            Ability to sequence tasks in one (or both) of 2 ways:

            (1) Manually order tasks in a folder, and have that order be synchronized across clients (including when viewing the same list in the iOS Reminders app.

            (2) Daisy-chain tasks such that the status of one is Deferred until 1 or more prerequisite tasks are completed.

            • Option of using last location to save attachments from Microsoft Outlook 2016

              When we right-click on an in-line image and select 'Save as Picture', we want the last used location to be shown for saving the image. Currently it reverts every time to the 'Pictures' folder. This is inconvenient. One can easily find the Pictures folder from the Navigation Pane on the left if they want to view pictures anyways.

                  • Include how many hours a task required

                    In outlook.com, there is a drop-down menu to include approximately how much time a task will take/did take. This is something that my employer wants to use to see approximately how much time each project we do takes, but this option is nowhere in the downloadable program, only the website. This addition would be perfect for our company's needs.

                              • Allow for the Start Date to be defined without having to define a due date

                                There is no rational reason to assume that all tasks that have a Start date MUST have a due date. This is simply not true and THE major problem when handling tasks in Outlook.

                                  It would be very helpful to have statistics such as number of emails sent/received, response rate, time spent on Outlook, number of emails per conversation/sender/day etc.

                                  • Rule Option for Email Volume in Outlook 2016

                                    A rule/message alert would be nice for when you get a certain number of emails a day that automatically get sorted into folders. For example:

                                    - When a folder receives a certain number of emails in a day by rule.
                                    - When a folder gets past a certain number of emails total.
                                    - When someone sends you a certain number of emails a day.
                                    - When a rule gets triggered a certain number of times in a day/week.

                                    • Notification on completion of Archive Process in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                                      It would be nice to get an informative dialogue with "OK" informing about the completion of the Archive Process.
