Full flag/date integration
Allow flags to have a date setting, today/ tomorrow/ next week as a specific date, then combine those into a task schedule for the day. Allow QUICK assigning of time frames for each task.
I should be able to flag an email and then create a task for it.
1. John Doe emails me a set of drawing revisions.
2. I flag his email and create a task to revise the drawings, estimating it will take me 3 hours, starting at 09:00
3. Said task shows up in the Calendar as well as my daily agenda
Thank you for your feedback and patience on this topic. We’ve now added full flag/date integration in OWA!
Not true, don't work, only in task TAB we can check task as DONE

This does not seem available, I do not have these options in my outlook.com account.

Can you please clarify when this will be available to use. I just checked my Outlook OWA. I do not see option for flag to specify date on demand.
I still do not see the option to flag per day (Today/Tomorrow/This Week/New Week)

Microsoft please could you make the "mark as complete" tick consistent throughout the entire range of ways to access Outlook.
This Feature exists in the PC downloaded software version of outlook and works well.
Using the Office 365 online version via Edge on the PC you only have the options to Flag or Unflag you cannot "mark as complete" an email ( someone tell me how to do it if I've not spotted something!) - But clumsily it can be made to work in a roundabout way in the online version by flagging the email then opening the Office 365 online version (via Edge) of "tasks" and then "mark as complete" this will result in a done tick appearing against the email
When using the mobile view of Office 365 online on my Android phone via Edge it works by selecting the email and flagging it then re selecting it and "mark as complete" - this is also possible in a similar way by opening the email - it would be nice to have a mark as complete tick available as an option ( see PC Outlook software)
When using the actual Outlook Android app you can only Flag or unflag an email - you cannot mark it as complete - the Tasks Android app is nothing like the tasks app within Office 365 online - so is not an option ( I'm surprised it's even got the same name as the Office 365 app).
Add check mark option to emails to show the email has been addressed

I am a new user of the web based Outlook, having used the thick client version for many years, I am struggling trying to find the same capabilities. I need to put a custom reminder on an email. Not just a follow-up flag but a specific day and time to remind me of that email, just like you can on regular PC Outlook.

I really need this option so that I can identify which decisions are still outstanding and which need to be made - unflagged just means I have not looked at something yet.

The old OWA used to show a checkmark when a flagged email was completed; new beta (business version) doesn't show that (only lets you unflag, can't mark it completed. Please bring this back to the new OWA.

This is something available in business version of Outlook. But even as a paid (premium) user I don’t have it. What a piyt.
Bump up. Very important and urgent!

What idiot removed this feature? We use to marked flagged messages completed so everyone knew they were COMPLETED!
But once again MS BS strikes and removes a useful feature. This is just one of the many many stupid unnecessary changes MS has made.
Please bring this feature back. It's super helpful in making sure I keep up with important emails and tasks.
Inability to specify Flag date is a show stopper for me for using Outlook in browser.
This is extremely frustrating - Flag options implemented differently in Outlook Web, Outlook 2016, Outlook mobile.
Please make Flag options working as in Outlook 2016
Where has the completed action gone? I can flag, pin, etc. but I want to be able to tick my email as complete. It used to be a feature. I don't like Beta.
OUTLOOK REPLY keeps saying..untick it. THATS NOT THE POINT OUTLOOK???? WE DONT WANT TO UNFLAG?? WE WANT THE FLAGS? we just dont WANT flags and pinned on MAIN PANE?? we dont want to untick it and fling flags and pinns randomly into the email list scattered around many dates/,mths/yrs...we WANT THEM FLAGGED and pinned. FOR GAWDS SAKE. its not rocket science see how gmail do it. and dont show us whats in OTHER the whole point of OTHER is its not important. most of us now even have to chuck block stuff in there as block now doesnt work on Outlook.
this is an utter farce.

Please arrange this. That this option is also available in this new version. Is also very important to me. I am missing this option!
Yes, this is very important. Please give this option. I just came here to post about this option.
