  3. Provide a timeline view that shows each main task and child task in details categorized based on color in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a timeline view that shows each main task and child task in details categorized based on color in Microsoft Outlook 2016. Timeline view that show each main task and capability to view child task in details. Each task line colored based on nearest to the dateline e.g green, yellow and red.

    Also, for those of us that like to time-block and change the color once a task is complete: Provide an option to change the category color of just one item in a reoccurring series vs. the entire series.

  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.

  6. Provide an option to sort Task in Outlook 2016

    Provide an option to sort the tasks made in outlook 2016 so that redundant tasks can easily be removed from the tasklist. Also providing an option to sort tasks in Microsoft Outlook 2016 by Task subject with an appropriate subject beginning and to be able to click on the top bar in order to have them sort alphabetically would be an added benefit.

  7. Store mail data used to generate task correctly

    If you use the feature in Mail to "Create a task with text of message" this doesn't store the mail data correctly. If you enable the "From" column for display in the task view, it lists you as the "From" rather than the person who sent you an email asking you to do something. I support multiple people and it would be great easily turn an email into a to do item and have it easily track-able by requester.

  8. Allow multiple poll questions in one email of Outlook 2016

    New feature request would be to allow to conduct a survey within an email. Where users could answer multiple questions without the need for a weblink or outside source.

    Would facilitate customer service satisfaction surveys and organization of results.

  9. Countdown Timer

    I suggest a countdown timer that can sit minimized on a windows desktop, giving a customizeable countdown clock.

    I'm a terrible procrastinator (I should have asked for this years ago) and one way to keep my attention focused on tasks is to have a list of tasks, a due date and a countdown timer to display time remaining until the project is due. That way I could enter a due date for a specific task, and receive alerts as time ticked away: weekly, monthly, hourly. For me and my team.

    For regular, day to day throughput, I'd benefit from a…

  12. Create a task for a certain employee but have the option to CC in other managers to track progress also

    I need to create a task for a certain employee but I also need to add other managers in so they can also track that certain employee's "efforts". I don't need to task the other managers.

  15. Shared Task Folder Naming Updates to Recipients

    When I create a new shared task folder in tasks, if I rename it after sharing it, the original recipients do not see my name change. They have to rename it themselves on their side or delete the share and have me resend it after my changes. Why can't the changes sync to all who have the shared folder?

  16. 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.

  20. Make sure user defined Task list are robust.

    I make lists with a bespoke sort order in Tasks > Home > Current View. However, if I am viewing one of my bespoke lists and then click any icon in View > Arrangement, the sort order is corrupted for all subsequent sessions. See https://ueanorwich-my.sharepoint.com/:v:/g/personal/urq17xbuueaacuk/EbkOU3gylJCvmGy65jD2ZYBvReJ5B47cDLn83UNgbwpDg?e=yfMqkC
