  4. I suggest you add a button to create a task from an email

    I suggest you add a button to create a task from an email body that is highlighted. When a text is highlighted you should be able to create a task quickly from there with being able to link back to the original email as a reference.Inviting people to a task would be a nice touch as well.

  7. Please add the To Do back to outlook, instead of a web version

    Please add the To Do back to outlook, instead of a web version. this is counterproductive.

  10. Add complete status when unflagging emails

    The ticking/checking function after you have flagged something is a necessity, which you always been able to do on the windows and also on the old mac app.

    It's quite a useful way to go through your inbox because you can check off all your emails for the day and know you've dealt with everything and nothing is left undone. It's a bit of a lifesaver on my end!

    It's just a little grey tick in the top right of each email on the old Outlook. On the windows app, it's a bright green tick.

    For now I've moved back…

  13. I suggest you enable an Omnifocus add-in

    I use Omnifocus as a task manager. It is very powerful. The inability to directly use Omnifcous (there are work-arounds, but clunky) with outlook keeps me from using it as my primary email client.

  14. Provide support for Apple MacOS/iOS Reminders created in the AppleReminders app.

    Apple Reminders serves the same function as To-Do. Our family uses Apple Reminders and it would be good to have this information sync into Outlook.

  15. Webversion tasks and notes only available with School/work-account

    Make access to web tasks and notes available for personal users. When Clicking on task / notes from WITHIN THE NEW OUTLOOK you are directed to the outlook.com version. But this is only accessible with a school or work account. When trying to enter your personal account, the message appears that this this service is'n accessible? Why? Please fix this!

  18. Mala idea sacar las tareas pendientes

    Al tener que ir a una nueva página web a buscar las tareas pendientes molesta bastante, por que antes toda la gestión del correo, estaba dentro de Outlook, ahora al intentar potenciar las herramientas web, no se permite gestionar el correo Offline, ni ver los pendientes para trabajar sin conexión. Me parece mala idea!

  20. Prioritise getting the Task pane to work

    I switched to new Outlook and the Task pane doesn't appear, nor can I see it any more if I switch back to the old Outlook. Why have you rolled this out when it's incomplete? So frustrating.
