  2. Create a task for a certain employee but have the option to CC in other managers to track progress also

    I need to create a task for a certain employee but I also need to add other managers in so they can also track that certain employee's "efforts". I don't need to task the other managers.

  5. Shared Task Folder Naming Updates to Recipients

    When I create a new shared task folder in tasks, if I rename it after sharing it, the original recipients do not see my name change. They have to rename it themselves on their side or delete the share and have me resend it after my changes. Why can't the changes sync to all who have the shared folder?

  6. Have a set row in today task view.

    I think it would be helpful to have a set row at the bottom of the today task view. This set row would show totals for such columns as total and actual work for the day. How many tasks you have today etc.

    Mark the Tasks as Completed but do not move them to deleted items folder in Microsoft Outlook 2016. Rather keep them in Inbox and marked as Completed.

  8. Make sure user defined Task list are robust.

    I make lists with a bespoke sort order in Tasks > Home > Current View. However, if I am viewing one of my bespoke lists and then click any icon in View > Arrangement, the sort order is corrupted for all subsequent sessions. See https://ueanorwich-my.sharepoint.com/:v:/g/personal/urq17xbuueaacuk/EbkOU3gylJCvmGy65jD2ZYBvReJ5B47cDLn83UNgbwpDg?e=yfMqkC

  13. Statistics

    It would be very helpful to have statistics such as number of emails sent/received, response rate, time spent on Outlook, number of emails per conversation/sender/day etc.

  14. When marking an message as complete, mark it read and allow for it to clear categories (optional)

    When marking an message as complete, mark the message as read and optionally allow for it to clear categories assigned to the message.

    This is useful for those that use categories to as a more fine tune filtering option of the status of a project, task or idea.

  15. Allow non-blank default task Start Date

    By default, new tasks have no Start Date or Due Date set (unless created via "Click here to add a new Task" - which I don't use). I would like to have the option of deciding what my default Start Date is, even if I use Ctrl+N or Ctrl+Shift+K. Just like the "Click here to add a new Task" Start Date defaults to whatever the "Set Quick Click flag" value is, please do the same for other ways of creating new tasks, or at least make it an option.

  16. Provide an option to attach an email directly to a task in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option to attach an email directly to a task in Microsoft Outlook 2016 for easy tracking.
    So you can provide the option to forward an e-mail as a task with attachments. This will allow managers to disperse tasks from e-mail requests from clients. Without the need to retype a new task.

  20. Provide a feature to show all messages in the conversation in Microsoft Outlook 2016 where emails have been marked as a task.

    Provide a feature to show all messages in the conversation in Microsoft Outlook 2016 where emails have been marked as a task.There should be an easy way to view the entire conversation. "Find Related"->"Messages in this conversation" often fails. And even if it succeeded, it should be much easier than that.
