      • Allow manual sorting and ordering of tasks after creation

        Cannot find any way to manually sort tasks when using Outlook for Mac, I don't want to use priories and it should be trivial to sort tasks according to my own preference, not by date or title.

        • Bring Task Details tab to tasks in Outlook for Mac

          Feature already exists for the Windows Outlook client. Frustrating for those of us who use both operating systems in the course of our business day to have some features available to us only on a given OS.

          • Attachment support for calendar and tasks

            Add attachment support for calendar items and tasks. Also it should be possible to easily create a new task or calendar item with an email as attachment.

              • Ability to Group Tasks like in the Windows version. Currently all you can do is sort by a field.

                Just need to be able to group, expand/collapse the tasks list like you can in the Windows version. As soon as you get past a screen full you can't manage the list properly.

                  • Add the ability to copy the task list for pasting in another program

                    In Outlook for Windows, you can select multiple Tasks in the Task List, click Copy, then paste the list into another tool (e.g. Excel). Doing this is really handy for quickly generating a list of tasks to save or send elsewhere.

                    • Add Subtasks!!!

                      Ability to add subtasks nested under each parent task, that can be shown or hidden, and individually completed/checked.

                      • Fix the tasks issue when dragged from the calendar.

                        Fix the issue when I drag a calendar item to the tasks and the task itself doesn't display correctly. It is shifted to the side and unreadable.
