  2. Store mail data used to generate task correctly

    If you use the feature in Mail to "Create a task with text of message" this doesn't store the mail data correctly. If you enable the "From" column for display in the task view, it lists you as the "From" rather than the person who sent you an email asking you to do something. I support multiple people and it would be great easily turn an email into a to do item and have it easily track-able by requester.

  3. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. Have a set row in today task view.

    I think it would be helpful to have a set row at the bottom of the today task view. This set row would show totals for such columns as total and actual work for the day. How many tasks you have today etc.

    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.

  11. Make sure user defined Task list are robust.

    I make lists with a bespoke sort order in Tasks > Home > Current View. However, if I am viewing one of my bespoke lists and then click any icon in View > Arrangement, the sort order is corrupted for all subsequent sessions. See https://ueanorwich-my.sharepoint.com/:v:/g/personal/urq17xbuueaacuk/EbkOU3gylJCvmGy65jD2ZYBvReJ5B47cDLn83UNgbwpDg?e=yfMqkC

  13. Shared Task Folder Naming Updates to Recipients

    When I create a new shared task folder in tasks, if I rename it after sharing it, the original recipients do not see my name change. They have to rename it themselves on their side or delete the share and have me resend it after my changes. Why can't the changes sync to all who have the shared folder?

  17. 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.

  18. Statistics

    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.

  19. Allow non-blank default task Start Date

    By default, new tasks have no Start Date or Due Date set (unless created via "Click here to add a new Task" - which I don't use). I would like to have the option of deciding what my default Start Date is, even if I use Ctrl+N or Ctrl+Shift+K. Just like the "Click here to add a new Task" Start Date defaults to whatever the "Set Quick Click flag" value is, please do the same for other ways of creating new tasks, or at least make it an option.
