  2. [Suggestion]:404 print error

    When I click on a PDF attachment and then click on the print button I receive a 404 error code. If I right click on the document and hit print, then I can print.

  3. link an email to a task

    i use tasks to organize my business. it would be useful to be able to drag emails i receive to the task to which it is relevant. i can get some of this functionality by creating mail folders, but that lacks the ability to include comments and makes my email folders more dynamic than i am comfortable with. thanks!

  4. Bring back the previous method of spellcheck. I hate that dropdown box with every other unneeded choices.

    Just bring back the previous method of spellcheck. I spell a word incorrectly, I right click over it, spelling choices drop down. I click on the correct spelling and the word is corrected. That function seems to no longer be available!

  5. [Suggestion]:Don't show me what I should be typing. Let me do that.

    How do I return to the old way of typing without you telling me what I should be typing?

  6. Task Sidebar

    Please add the option to show your tasks on a sidebar on the email page, so you don't have to open a separate window to look at them.

  7. Task to conversation

    Assign a follow up on your email conversation that shows in your to do list also as a conversation, so if there are more emails, that will show as a conversation in your tasks to do to instead off 10 separate tasks.

  8. Add a contact to a Task

    I would like to be able to add a connect a contact to a task. I was hoping I could see the history for the contact and all the tasks that were assigned for them. It looked like there were instruction in the old version of Outlook, but I don't see anything to do this now.

  9. Task and To-Do is losing formatting.

    Ever since To-Do has become a feature of Tasks, I noticed a few things happening to my task. Ever since 2019, I noticed that a newly created task will lose formatting such as bullets, bold, italics, strike-through and color. I will save it. It seems to store in my local cache of Outlook just fine for the day. Once I close Outlook and open it again the next day, the formatting is changed or lost completely.

    My order tasks before 2019 does not seems to do this. I wonder if it has to do with the new To-Do app which…

  10. To Do email tasks from secondary inbox not working

    When I try to add a new task from email in the To Do panel from a second inbox (not my main one), it doesn't take in the To Do column - it sticks for a second, then keeps on disappearing.

    This does not occur if I am dragging an email from my main inbox

  12. Tasks with day of the week in view

    It is very disappointing you can not see days of the week in the task bar when you set it up as a task. The today, this week and next week just adds all your tasks to a specific day. This would be especially helpful to see a task on Wednesday that is due when it is Monday, not just all placed in this week. This was a feature on previous versions and not on the newest.

  17. One Drive

    I HATE this addition. I keep all my files neatly catagorized in my own way and having it all mixed up now with One Drive is a catastrophe. Some things don't show up if they got hijacked by OD and my personal templates keep getting changed to fit OD parameters. This is particularly acute with my word files. When they go to OD they are basically lost to me since I can never find them again. I do not want my documents etc. to be stored in any cloud or "alternate" location. They should say "Compatability Mode. Saved to this…
