  3. Move location of To do bar.

    Create an option for the To-Do Bar to be located on the left side of the window frame, so that the users eyes see it first thing (when "reading" from left to right). Currently, outlook only allows it on the right most edge of the window. To be able to move it to the left side of the folder and reading panes.

  4. 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!

  5. flag

    Please could you develop a feature attached to the flags function so that we can add a note to ourselves of what the flag is for?

    I see this working that when I flag an email, another box opens up which allows me to add a reminder as to what I need to do before processing the email, for example.

    And if this could go into the Outlook Today page too that would be awesome!

  6. Convert or create tasks to appointment easily.

    Microsoft should make it easy to convert/create a task to an appointment to make it easy to schedule a time period on a calendar for task implementation.

    It will be nice to look through your tasks and then schedule your day based on those tasks and have them nicely shown on your calendar.

  9. Tasks/Excel

    My idea would consist of when and alert pops open reminding to review or work on a document, whether word or excel, that a button asking you if you would like to open that specific document is present within the pop up window alerting you to work on the document.

  11. 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…

  12. It would be helpful if tasks for multiple projects could each be broken down into sub tasks with their own schedule.

  13. Hover over tasks to show customization list in Outlook 2016

    If I hover over a task in the task pane in Outlook, I see a tool tip. The tool tip doesn't contain the body message.
    The body message could be massive, and may not even be text, but it were it was, it would be great if it showed the first N characters of the message. For me, personally, this is more useful then knowing which Outlook Data File is used.

    So to have this customisable would be amazing, but having a body preview on the hover I'm sure would be useful for many

  14. Bring back the Follow up options in tasks

    PLEASE bring back the options to complete or follow up other than immediately in tasks. Only having the option to flag and un-flag is highly inconvenient.

  16. Re-think Tasks view

    Present Tasks in a series of card-like elements. "Scrolling" through them will provide better focus on details and perhaps could be "stacked" to help set priorities

  18. Today tasks agenda with start and end hour. Timer included

    The latest scientific researches show that it's inefficient to only list tasks without clearly scheduling them within the day with start hour and end hour so it would be great if that could be available the Today tasks page. Would be great also to hit "Start" to the task and have a timer running for the pre-scheduled time which will motivate you to stay focused and close the task in the predefined time.

  20. Outlook 2016 and OneNote 2016 should have daily reminders for tasks marked with a flag
