Task and Calendar Unification
See the to-do task list in the calendar in a different format (not like events), like the weather. The fact that calendar and task are using the same calendar but you can't see them in the same page is awful!
Create new task, birthdays or events directly from the Calendar.
outlook.com Tasks should be redesigned to merge/sync To-Do app details and calendar events. All 3 almost do the same functionality with Tasks gives us ability to track. This will give the user good productivity. Please consider this
Outlook Calendar events should be synced to Microsoft To-Do app. Otherwise we have to use 2 different apps.

Task folders do not show in the Outlook.com beta
The original ToDo functionality is missing at stated above. If all of it can not be re-implemented/replicated. Can the ToDo's just show up again. Either in the calendar or a side panel.
I'd like to see them in mobile as well. Now I have to download another app for features Microsoft used to provide.
In windows version of Outlook 2016, you are able to see your upcomming tasks in the calendar view.
I would like to have the same option in Outlook 2016 for Mac.

Please add to do features into mail pane. I would like to either make an email a "to do" or create a "to do" based upon email. I would like to put a due date in, so it shows in calendar. Also, I would like to assign the "to do" to someone else if needed.
When tasks have a due date, they should be available to view, manage, edit from the calendar view. This might work by providing a header row that showed the number of tasks due on that day; when this area is hovered over or clicked, the list of tasks would drop down. Once this list is available, the user should be able to select a task and:
- open it for review/edit;
- complete it with a single action;
- move it to another day (new Due Date) by dragging;
- use it to create a new Calendar Item (these should remain as separate objects, but would be linked and the user would be able to navigate from the Task to the Calendar Item, or from the Calendar Item to the Task.
