  2. Reoccurring Task Option

    Much like Meetings or events have the ability to be created as "reoccurring" the same should be allowed for "Tasks".

  3. Task into a folder from the task creation window

    In order to save time it is necessary to be able to put a newly created task into a specific task folder on creation.
    So when you're creating a new task you should be able to browse through available folders or create a new folder right from the task creation window. (should work similar to the category setting for a task)

    Currently you have to create a task (e.g. by flagging an email message) and then you need to go to tasks and distribute newly created task into a specific folder which is not convenient and consumes additional time.

  6. Nudge

    Create an option to "nudge" the recipient of a task to remind them of the work needed. The nudge would move it to the top of messages.

  8. Another category for tasks "highly important"

    It would be good to have another category for tasks. Not only organize them in "today", "tomorrow" etc. but an extra category for "today" to set priorities like "highly important" or "priority 1", "priority 2" and so on.

  10. 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.

  11. disable task reminder in outlook we are using todo

    We need a feature for disable tasks reminder in Outlook 2016 (Outlook 365) we use the modern / future ui todo on all our clients and all our users don't like the double reminder. One reminder from Outlook, one from todo. We want to disable the reminder for tasks in Outlook (but of course not for calendar events.)
    this problem is detailed described from a other user on https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/disable-outlook-tasks-notification/89be8699-9fbe-4323-a8d1-8c47d547746a

  12. Task due date should be automatically added onto Outlook Calendar

    If you enter a task with a due date, it should show up in your calendar as either an all-day event or an event at the time assigned (if applicable). When the task is complete, it should update in calendar with the strikethrough formatting.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  20. Custom to-do list groups

    Custom to-do list groups that are not date driven like "To Read" "Delegated" or "revision" so they can be in sight but not time orientated.
