Set a due time for tasks
Currently, the due time is configured to 12:00 a.m. on the due date. Having the ability to create a due time would be beneficial on an exchange account.

Tasks should be able to be created as a time block on the calendar. I have things that I need to do throughout the day that are not meetings. I think a feature that combines the task reminders and lists with the calendar view and ability to set times would be helpful.

This feature is LONG overdue!

Add an option (a check box) to mark that the due date as fixed, so that the due date doesn’t move when you change the start date.
I manage my workdays by reviewing the To Do-list every morning and afternoon. If there is no time to some of the tasks during the day, I decide whether I will do them tomorrow or a later date. The only problem is that the due date for the task is moved forward every time I change the start date for the task…
In the real world you have tasks that are to be completed on a specific, given day, no matter when you start to do the task or if you decide to postpone it. Please change Outlook, so that it is possible to keep track of those due dates as well, in a reliable manner.
Keep up the good work, MS :-)

I agree!! Every time I edit one of my iCloud reminders that is integrated into Outlook it resets the due time to midnight on my phone, which is highly inconvenient. The ability to set a due time would be beneficial not only to help stay on schedule and organized, but also with that integration feature.
Have the option to automatically add tasks with a due date to the calendar, and have the calendar event linked to the task. So when the task is marked comlplete, the calendar event is checked (or the text is then Strikethrough). So you can easily glance at the calendar and see what tasks are due, when they are do, and if tasks have been completed.
