  3. 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.

  4. Re-activate the option to "Regenerate new tasks n number of days/weeks/months after a task is completed".

    This option was available in earlier Outlook versions (in Task Recurrence dialog box), but not in 2016.
    It makes sense in different cases, where you can delay task completion but a new task's due date depends on the last completion date: blood donation, lawn mowing, visit grand-mom, ...

  5. Provide a feature to reassign a Task in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Once a task has been assigned, it can only be cancelled. It would be great if it could be reassigned.

  7. Provide a feature to retain table when creating tasks from an email in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Currently, while creating tasks from an email, the table present or created in an email is getting converted to text which should not happen as a normal behavior. It should be retained as a table even when the task is successfully created avoiding any unwanted change in formatting and avoiding mistakes with the layout.

  8. Provide a feature to make To Do List accessible and track-able and export it from Microsoft Outlook 2016 to other platforms

    Access & track your "To Do List" while you are on the go. In Outlook smartphone app, separate app or even exporting the list to keep following up in excel file. That would be more productive if Outlook would export it to To-Do application as a ready list.

  11. In the my Tasks, resource to import an excel list, where each line are imported as a task still allow to choose a cell as the closing date.

    Today we create one task at a time. I suggest functionality that allows you to import an Excel list, where each line is imported as a task still allow you to choose a cell as the expected closing date.

  12. 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.

  13. The web and android version of Tasks allow include steps inside a task, however the desktop version doesn't support steps.

    Include the support of 'step' inside a 'task' in the desktop version, as the web and android version of Tasks does.

  14. 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.

  16. 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...!!!

  20. Ask for Task List/Reminder

    As soon as you mention in the mail "Tomorrow we will check and update you" or "we will check and update you by 10 Feb"…. etc.. it has to ask for Task list/reminder or it should get added automatically in the task list/reminder.
