  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

    (3) Create a column for Prioritizing tasks. Sub Tasks as well to tie all together.

  16. Option to replace "Tell me what you want to do" with Help in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Option to replace "Tell me what you want to do" with Insert Picture or Help in Microsoft Outlook 2016. Or adding the option to remove "Tell me what you want to do" completely will be even better.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.
