  2. To Do tasks view in a calendar timeline showing start and due dates

    Tasks can be seen in calendar showing a timeline from start to due, allow colour categories, priorities, sub tasks, assign to people. Separate this calendar from normal calendar but allow them to be shown together as well. Allow other workers calendar time lines to be accessed if they are working on that task.

  4. Outlook 2016 load time issue

    Initial loading of outlook 2016 since the last update has increased 4 times. In other words it usually only took 2 seconds once clicked to open & fully load, but now it takes 15 seconds which is very very slow. Please check and fix.

  5. 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.

  7. Rule Option for Email Volume in Outlook 2016

    A rule/message alert would be nice for when you get a certain number of emails a day that automatically get sorted into folders. For example:


    • When a folder receives a certain number of emails in a day by rule.

    • When a folder gets past a certain number of emails total.

    • When someone sends you a certain number of emails a day.

    • When a rule gets triggered a certain number of times in a day/week.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  15. Include reminder settings with recurrence settings, e.g. set for 1 day or 1 hour ahead of each recurrence

    It would help a lot to be able to set a default reminder for each recurring task in the recurrence dialog.

  20. 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.
