  1. Set a due time for tasks

    Currently, the due time is configured to 12:00 a.m. on the due date. Having the ability to create a due time would be beneficial on an exchange account.

    • Possibility to schedule when you are going to work with a task in the Calendar

      Here's howI want to work with tasks:
      • I want to be able to create overall projects for tasks
      o Under each project, I can create different tasks
      o Each task can be assigned to the status
       Not started
       On time
       Escalated
       Completed
      o Each task may have a start / end date, but
       each task can be booked in the calendar, several times. You should therefore be able to schedule when you work with the task. Double-clicking on the task in the calendar will of course be the task that opens.

      • When marking an message as complete, mark it read and allow for it to clear categories (optional)

        When marking an message as complete, mark the message as read and optionally allow for it to clear categories assigned to the message.

        This is useful for those that use categories to as a more fine tune filtering option of the status of a project, task or idea.

        • Add the option to select a Task Folder when using Quick Steps "Create a task with attachment"

          I am working to get a seamless experience across Outlook Tasks and Microsoft To-Do.

          This is the scenario:
          When I get an e-mail, I would like to create a task with the incoming e-mail attached (e.g. remind me to reply to that e-mail).

          Within Quick Steps there is the option to "Create a task with attachment".

          As Microsoft To-Do is using the folder structure within the Task folder to label tasks, I'd like to move the task to a certain Task folder (e.g. "Work"). However, the "Move to folder" action within Quick Steps doesn't allow to select a Task Folder,…

          • Mark the Tasks as Completed but do not move them to deleted items folder in Microsoft Outlook 2016

            Mark the Tasks as Completed but do not move them to deleted items folder in Microsoft Outlook 2016. Rather keep them in Inbox and marked as Completed.

            • Allow multiple poll questions in one email of Outlook 2016

              New feature request would be to allow to conduct a survey within an email. Where users could answer multiple questions without the need for a weblink or outside source.

              Would facilitate customer service satisfaction surveys and organization of results.

                  • Provide an option to make emails moved to tasks more easy and easily noticeable in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                    Provide an option to make emails moved to tasks more easy and easily noticeable in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

                    As tasks work great in a way to manage your work but they are immensely painful to be located in the form of email later after the task is completed/deleted as when you move an email to tasks it is archived/deleted from inbox.

                    • Provide a feature to show all messages in the conversation in Microsoft Outlook 2016 where emails have been marked as a task.

                      Provide a feature to show all messages in the conversation in Microsoft Outlook 2016 where emails have been marked as a task.There should be an easy way to view the entire conversation. "Find Related"->"Messages in this conversation" often fails. And even if it succeeded, it should be much easier than that.
