  1. Allow users to Skip Occurrence on Ribbon without having to open individual recurring tasks.

    I have several recurring monthly tasks setup, but some months no work/time is spent on them. I don't want to mark them complete for the month, so most of the time I simply go into each task and hit "Skip Occurrence". I prefer not to hit "Mark Complete", since no actual work was done and I use the to-do/task history to track productivity. It would be a nice quality of life improvement if I could add the "Skip Occurrence" button to the To-Do List ribbon, that way users don't have to go into each individual task to skip.

  4. Provide a feature or an option to send notification on completion of a Task or Meeting in Calendar in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    When you receive an email to do a task, and you compete the task.. and you tick it off, the other side should get a notification to show that its been ticked off meaning job done. Will be so convenient instead of sending an email back saying so, as i work as a reception administrator it will be so much easier and faster. specially if you work in a busy field.

  8. Ask for Task List/Reminder

    As soon as you mention in the mail "Tomorrow we will check and update you" or "we will check and update you by 10 Feb"…. etc.. it has to ask for Task list/reminder or it should get added automatically in the task list/reminder.

  9. Link emails to tasks

    A simple drag and drop option to link emails to a task, currently i create tasks by either flagging an email for follow up (then i can't edit the task easily) or by creating a new task (can't link emails related to the task). if i could create a task and then drag the email to link to it, when i open the task i can quickly see all related communications. any other emails in the conversation would automatically link up also

  10. Snooze All in Outlook Reminder Window

    For Outlook, I would LOVE to see a SNOOZE ALL... you have dismiss all, but I would rather see a snooze all.
    There are times when I get into the office in the morning and I just log in and a ton of reminders popup. I need to deal with other things in the morning, so a Snooze All would be great, rather than having to keep changing the snooze timer for each one, one-by-one. It would be great!

  12. Tasks: Flagging & Tagging

    Outlook's To-Do feature (flagging) affects Tasks, Mail, Contacts, Calendar...everything in Outlook. TO-DO's FlAGGING feature needs further development in Outlook.

    Each item in Outlook be it a Message, Task, Contact, Calendar entry, etc. could be managed more effectively were the following Tags more easily applied to any item:

    1.) Flagging
    2.) Categorizing
    3.) Prioritizing
    4.) Dating (start and/or due dates)
    5.) Add a “My Today” field/button (not a date)

    Again, the above five "Tags" should be more easily accessed on each item in Outlook.
    Finally, the Task Subject field in Outlook should be more fully utilized. The “Task Subject” is an…

  13. Re-activate the option to "Regenerate new tasks n number of days/weeks/months after a task is completed".

    This option was available in earlier Outlook versions (in Task Recurrence dialog box), but not in 2016.
    It makes sense in different cases, where you can delay task completion but a new task's due date depends on the last completion date: blood donation, lawn mowing, visit grand-mom, ...

    Once a task has been assigned, it can only be cancelled. It would be great if it could be reassigned.
