  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Provide an option to make emails moved to tasks more easy and easily noticeable in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option to make emails moved to tasks more easy and easily noticeable in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    As tasks work great in a way to manage your work but they are immensely painful to be located in the form of email later after the task is completed/deleted as when you move an email to tasks it is archived/deleted from inbox.

  19. Allow for the Start Date to be defined without having to define a due date

    There is no rational reason to assume that all tasks that have a Start date MUST have a due date. This is simply not true and THE major problem when handling tasks in Outlook.
