  3. Reoccurring Task Option

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

  4. Separate pop out option

    It would be nice to be able to pop the tasks section out of the main outlook program to have it in a separate window

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. Tasks/Excel

    My idea would consist of when and alert pops open reminding to review or work on a document, whether word or excel, that a button asking you if you would like to open that specific document is present within the pop up window alerting you to work on the document.

  11. Re-think Tasks view

    Present Tasks in a series of card-like elements. "Scrolling" through them will provide better focus on details and perhaps could be "stacked" to help set priorities

  12. 予定表の終了日カレンダーが表示されない

    Windows8.1、Office 365 solo、Outlook2016、ver.1804を利用しています。

    定期的なアイテムを作成するとき,終了日のカレンダー設定のカレンダーが表示されなくなっています。
    Microsoftサポートに電話で確認したところ、アプリの不具合であるとの回答でした。
    毎日使うものなので早急な改善をお願いします。

  13. Add a pop up which says "Are you sure you want to delete this task?" when clicking delete on a task

    There is no way to recover these, and once sent to someone else it does not give you the option to save and close (for obvious reasons) but if you get very used to clicking save and close, and delete appears in its place, you have to then chase the other person to resend.

  14. Make the update for Windows 10 (I updated on Nov,29th 2017) the outlook and power point work correctly. I think it would be a good idea. For

    For instance: Power point: inserting slides from another file (Keep source formatting does not have an impact whatsoever ). Making an Email to a Task renders the Email unaccesible by saying " You do not have access". I ha ve never changed any access rights on my PC nor anybody else. Please make the basics work before you do anything new! How about that as an idea!

  15. Reminders for assignee in assigned recurring tasks

    For recurring tasks that are assigned it would make things easier if reminders for each occurence could be enabled for the assignee. This type of functionality would reduce the need for sending manual emails requesting someone to complete a task.

  16. Allow sharing of To-Do List in Task

    Allow sharing of "To-Do List". I can create a new folder and share it. The task in the new folder show up in the To-Do List folder. I would like the option to share my To-Do List folder, so that the person I am sharing my To-Do List folder can see all my task and due dates.

  17. Tracking tasks/projects when you send

    Some way of tracking tasks/projects when you send. rather than individual emails coming back and having to track. If you send an email or a new format of say a Task Email as they complete they can click done or something and there is a running total of who has completed it and when.

  19. Appointments created from tasks can be default tentative or free instead of busy

    While in calendar view, when a task is dragged from the task pane to the calendar, the created calendar event is shown as "busy" by default. My idea is to have a setting were dragged tasks create "free" or "tentative" events by default.

  20. Provide a "Issue Resolved" Button/Function for mails alredy sent.

    So that the recipient doesn't need to read through mails, or answer them, when the issue has already been resolved in the meantime.
