Add Ability to insert Check boxes within a Task in Microsoft Outlook 2016

Currently, we can only insert bullets into Tasks. It would be helpful to be able to create checklists. Linking to OneNote is an immediate work-around.

    In the notes field of a Task you can use a numbered or bulleted list, but it would be useful if there was a check box function too, that you can tick to indicate something is done. I know you can mark a task as complete but that is not what I mean - I'm talking about notes within a task, for when a task has several steps or components to it that you can tick off as you go. I prefer that to striking through text. This would be a useful feature in Word too please.

    This would certainly be helpful. It would reduce the amount of work that we do to go to symbols to insert a box that can be used as a checklist item.
