  1. Unify To-Do List items and Tasks

    I think many of us business users get our work actions from e-mails, and it is quite easy and efficient to flag an e-mail for follow up.
    However, flagging e-mails in this fashion doesn't actually turn them into Tasks, but merely a To-Do List item with limited functionality. For example, To-Do List items cannot be assigned to someone else, which is highly inconvenient if you want to pass on some work to a colleague. You also cannot keep track of work assigned to someone else, even if they have shared their Task list, because To-Do items don't appear there.

  2. 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.

  5. 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. Basically turn it into a Planner. Charge extra for it BUT ALLOW IT TO BE USED IN ALL 365 including HOME. This is very useful even for non business projects. This will supersede MS Planner as a better system more integrated into Outlook. The additional benefit for…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Daily briefing emails from Cortana add option for task to be completed on a day in the future

    The daily briefing emails currently have options for Done or Not a task, it would be great if there was also an option to schedule a task. The idea being that I said I would do this task in 2 weeks time so let me book that and remind me about it on that day rather than 2 days after I said I would do it.

  10. 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.

  17. Recurrence feature for Task entries

    When deleting a Task item that has a recurrence schedule set, you are presented with an option to delete all tasks for this recurring Task items or delete just the one recurring item. The default currently is set for deleting all of the recurring Task items associated with the Task in question. It seems that this is not a "fail safe" approach. The default should be that only the one Task item would be deleted, unless the user manually selects the "delete all" option.

  20. 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.
