  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.

      • Ability to set Task durations, and Calendar suggests tasks based on availability and duration

        Ability to set an estimated duration for a Task (perhaps with ability to set a default time and quickly change), and then have the Calendar suggest Tasks you could work on when it sees you have the appropriate amount of time open in your calendar.

        • Create a task for a certain employee but have the option to CC in other managers to track progress also

          I need to create a task for a certain employee but I also need to add other managers in so they can also track that certain employee's "efforts". I don't need to task the other managers.

          • Make the update for Windows 10 (I updated on Nov,29th 2017) the outlook and power point work correctly. I think it would be a good idea. For

            For instance: Power point: inserting slides from another file (Keep source formatting does not have an impact whatsoever ). Making an Email to a Task renders the Email unaccesible by saying " You do not have access". I ha ve never changed any access rights on my PC nor anybody else. Please make the basics work before you do anything new! How about that as an idea!

                    • Countdown Timer

                      I suggest a countdown timer that can sit minimized on a windows desktop, giving a customizeable countdown clock.

                      I'm a terrible procrastinator (I should have asked for this years ago) and one way to keep my attention focused on tasks is to have a list of tasks, a due date and a countdown timer to display time remaining until the project is due. That way I could enter a due date for a specific task, and receive alerts as time ticked away: weekly, monthly, hourly. For me and my team.

                      For regular, day to day throughput, I'd benefit from a…

                          • 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,…

                                • 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.

                                  • Bring back the Mark Complete button on the Task reminder window.

                                    It is too cumbersome to right click the tiny line of the task in the Reminder window, and then the mouse often drifts to the Delete Item instead. I am not a procrastinator, and most of the time my tasks are complete before the reminder appears. There used to be a Mark Complete button right there, that made it much easier to complete the task and remove the reminder.

                                      There are many Tasks. For example;
                                      Payments
                                      Insurance etc..
                                      when you enter a task under Payments, you have to go under Payments, however, directly in the task pane, folder is not stated "Save in ......"

                                        • 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.
