  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  8. 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...!!!

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  18. 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.
