  1. Convert tasks to appointment easily

    Microsoft should make it easy to convert 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  5. In the To-Do List in Tasks I used to be able to group by “Due Date” and then “Reminder Time” but if I do that now the result give nothing.

    In the To-Do List in Tasks I used to be able to group by “Due Date” and then “Reminder Time” but if I do that now the result give nothing. It feels like there is a bug in the system. I think it became a problem with the software that was released 1st February 2019.

  7. Categories in task pane.

    It would be good, that in task pane, when it is filtered by categories, the band of each category acquires the color assigned by the user.
    Best regards...!!!

  8. Resolved to-do list items should show in the to-do list with Green complete mark.

    Currently outlook just remove the task from to-do list when user the red-flag. Because user might want to re-flag it due to some unpredictable situations and now user has to go through thousands of recently received emails to red-flag it (user might not remember the sender, title or content about the email so cannot search for it).

    The completed task should still show in the to-do list with Green complete mark with ordered below the red flagged to-do items.

  10. 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.

  15. Link emails to tasks

    A simple drag and drop option to link emails to a task, currently i create tasks by either flagging an email for follow up (then i can't edit the task easily) or by creating a new task (can't link emails related to the task). if i could create a task and then drag the email to link to it, when i open the task i can quickly see all related communications. any other emails in the conversation would automatically link up also

  16. 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…
