Possibility to schedule when you are going to work with a task in the Calendar
Here's howI want to work with tasks:
• I want to be able to create overall projects for tasks
o Under each project, I can create different tasks
o Each task can be assigned to the status
o Each task may have a start / end date, but
each task can be booked in the calendar, several times. You should therefore be able to schedule when you work with the task. Double-clicking on the task in the calendar will of course be the task that opens.

Taskline Add-In automatically schedules tasks to free time slots in your Outlook calendar:.
To be able to schedule your task onto your calendar, so that you secure the time to complete that particular task.

A way of marking the completeness of a task so that I can easily see which are partially complete, or waiting for others etc. Currently the options are To Do or Completed. Unfortunately work isn't so black and white! I could change the Categories to mark their completeness but these are set throughout Outlook, ie specific to Tasks.
First, this daily task list in Calendar view is awesome and correspond exactly to what I need with one exception:
If I set a new task and chose to start it on Wednesday and finish it on Friday, by default it will be seen on due date (Friday) below calendar. We can change it to start date (Wednesday) but none correspond to what I need: I need to see it everyday when I have to work on that task, so I wish to see it Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Possible?
It would be really helpful to be able to create a Task and add a checklist inside it, with checkboxes that can be checked off as they are completed.
This would be useful, for example, for creating a task for a shopping list, or for a project that contains sub-tasks that need to be individually listed and marked off.
In such cases it doesn't make sense to create individual, separate Tasks for each item in the list.
Even better would be having this feature also available in the Microsoft To-Do app on mobile devices!
Goooood idea. Every task eventually requires a time slot. Otherwise it is just wishful thinking.

I think this might be what I am thinking of as Sub-Categories
