  2. Add Tasks follow up options

    Add these “Follow up” pre-set options for Tasks: “in 3/4/5/6 days”. Also make “Custom date” selectable for multiple listed tasks simultaneously.

  3. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. todoist

    I am sure you want us to use your Todo tool, or what was Wunderlist, but Google allows you to use any. How about Todoist? Another one that may be a no-no, but have to ask... Google apps?

  8. When clicking 'To Do/Tasks' in the Outlook sidebar, it should open the Microsoft To-Do app instead of opening Microsoft To-Do in a browser

  10. Integration of SYNC between MAC Notes and MS ToDo

    I fully understand to integrate the MS products to interact with ToDo’s and MS Notes. However, please consider as well, that the local MAC Reminder and the local MAC Notes become part of, or at least, part of the sync. Thank you.

  11. een 2 way integratie met to do

    de to do app is een mooi aanvulling, of een uitgebreide variant van Tasks een goede integratie die zorgt dat tasks naar to do en bij afronden van van een taak de rode vlag bij outlook naar complete gaat.

  12. To-Do in Sidebar

    It would be great to have ToDo interface in the app on the sidebar, so that I can see all my categories and flagged mail and add things to My Day.

  13. Tasks on/in Calendar

    I'd like to be able to place Tasks on specific days/times on my calendar. It would really be a merger of an Appointment and a Task. As an MVP, it would need to display like a Calendar item but also have the functionality of a Task. It would need to also disappear from the Calendar when the Task is complete. Few productivity apps offer this and none do it well. There are a few other ideas for tasks as events or other functionality for

  14. Include a Tasks pane or Tab, similar to the Windows version of Outlook.

    I sorely miss the Tasks pane from the Windows version of Outlook. This was such a messy, but useful feature that helped me organize projects and keep track of important emails. I would love to have this feature back on the Mac version. Having to switch between a Tasks tab (like Calendar) is not the same and less useful as I fall into the Out of Sight, Out of Mind trap.
