  2. Another category for tasks "highly important"

    It would be good to have another category for tasks. Not only organize them in "today", "tomorrow" etc. but an extra category for "today" to set priorities like "highly important" or "priority 1", "priority 2" and so on.

  4. handles on tasks to move them up and/or down to put them in order

    It would be nice to have handles on the tasks on the same day to have handles on them to easily move them into the order you want them.

  5. disable task reminder in outlook we are using todo

    We need a feature for disable tasks reminder in Outlook 2016 (Outlook 365) we use the modern / future ui todo on all our clients and all our users don't like the double reminder. One reminder from Outlook, one from todo. We want to disable the reminder for tasks in Outlook (but of course not for calendar events.)
    this problem is detailed described from a other user on https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/disable-outlook-tasks-notification/89be8699-9fbe-4323-a8d1-8c47d547746a

  6. Task due date should be automatically added onto Outlook Calendar

    If you enter a task with a due date, it should show up in your calendar as either an all-day event or an event at the time assigned (if applicable). When the task is complete, it should update in calendar with the strikethrough formatting.

  7. 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.

  8. Outlook linked TO-DO list tasks list

    While reading or sending a mail, lot of follow on tasks come in my mind. An easy interface to TO-DO list will ease working quite a lot.

  13. Auto assign tasks to folders based on priority and/or day till due date

    To help with time management it would be great if there is some feature added to create rules that assign tasks to folders or prioritize them in another way.

  14. Custom to-do list groups

    Custom to-do list groups that are not date driven like "To Read" "Delegated" or "revision" so they can be in sight but not time orientated.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.
