Return Flag for Follow-up/Reminder
With the New Outlook for Mac, you seem to have removed the functionality to right-click on an email and set a reminder/flag/due date for a mail item. Can you please return this functionality? I found it especially useful for items that I could not act on at the moment but needed to follow back up with.

I think this should be a combination of the flag as it is now and a reminder in Microsoft To-Do set for a specific time in the future. Once the To-Do app is integrated into Outlook, this would be a powerful feature.

Agreed. This is the main reason I'm keep switching back to the old Outlook. Those follow up flags and reminders are what keeps me organized day to day when I have several hundred emails coming in with dozens needing follow up. I can't use the new Outlook for this reason.
This is core functionality to email/task management. It would be great to have it back. Now that the last sent message appears in conversation view, it would make it wonderfully easy to flag the message you've just sent for follow up at a future date. Until this functionality is returned, you have to go to To-Do, wait for the flagged task to appear and set a due date there. . It feels clunky in what is otherwise a brilliant experience.
This is critical Outlook functionality for me, and it is disturbing that 'New' Outlook has omitted it. Please reinstate. The 'Snooze' function is NOT an acceptable alternative, as it hides the message from display until the selected time arrives.
yes, this is an important function to remind my self of tasks in email and create follow up.
i don't think snooze can replace this as it has different objetive.
In addition, it would be wonderful if like on Windows, you could flag the email before you hit send.
Yes, please! It's crucial to have this functionality if the new Outlook for Mac is going to be successful!

Exactly, a key feature for work/task maangement. Should not have been removed.
This is a must-have feature. Not sure why it was removed.

I've always used this function to sort by expiration the activities to do contained in messages.... Please, ad it ASAP. Thanks

Please let us set the follow up time/day?

I used the ability to flag a message and set it to remind me tomorrow or next week. It would be helpful if this were in the new version as well.

You can no longer set a flagged item as completed.
