Wunderlist for Outlook won't even initialize here...
The way Microsoft is loosing out on task management is just sad. My solution is to have Wunderlist for Win 10 open in 20 percent of my screen and Outlook 2016 open in 80 percent. That way I at least get some task management between my PC and my Android Phone. Generaly managing tasks has become way easier on my Android Phone than on my Win 10 (Surface Pro 3) computer. On my Android Phone I am able to send everything to Wunderlist. On my computer Outlook feels outdated and neither Office Store nor Windows 10 Store seems up to date with the consumer friendliness of Google Play.
I am able to drag an email to the calendar and create an event, and have been so since upgrading to Outlook 2016.
I am horrified by the idea of beeing forced to use a unified inbox.
Anyone who know what "archive" is meant to do? It's obviously not the old archive.pst files.
I don't find any option for saving files from emails to Onedrive?
My calendar widget updates ok, BUT I am not able to remove this birtday calandar thing from it. I have removed the birthday calendar from the calendar, but it is still stuck in the widget, cluttering it so I have problems seeing my actual apointments.

In Excel for Android I can navigate easy between tabs by sliding my finger and then push the tab I want. Maybe you should consider something similar for Outlook for Android?
You Anonymous guys need to uninstall and reinstall the app to get your folders back. Why Microsoft has made us do so I do not know.
In Outlook 2013 I am able to link a calendar element to a page in OneNote for notes and preparations.. But in the Android app the link is gone. It is a shame that you are not getting your own tools working together better than this.
This is coming in the new version of Outlook.com. If you don’t already see it, you should soon see “Reply all by meeting” in the drop-down menu next to “Reply” when you click on a specific email. Hope that fits your needs. Thanks for the feedback.
“Reply all by meeting” - hopefully this does not mean actually sending an invitation to a meeting? At least that is not what I want. I want an easy way to create calandar events from an incomming mail.
Thanks for the detailed feedback and comments on this. Like you’ve noted we, as a company, have put work into tasks and task management before and it is an area we continue to give thought to as there is still improvement to make. I will pass this feedback and the comments on to the right folks for more consideration. If I can share anything substantive back, I will. Thanks again for the feedback and engagement.
I am not so optimistic about Wunderlist. As of lately Microsoft have been buying up small companies and adding their features, like they did with acompli, on top of their own features. This has just given us a growing number of features to choose from with litle integration between the features. For instance - we just got this new feature return to inbox. It seems to do much the same as flag. Just adding another, fifth way to make a to do.
What I realy do not understand is why I still have to copy and paste the content of an email into tasks or events I create in the calendar. It would be so much easier if I could just right click and add the email to a task or an event.

To elaborate on this. I have apps for train reservations, airplane reservations and hotel bookings. Those apps offer to add tickets and bookings to my calendar. They have no problems adding to the calandar in the older outlook.com app, but they do not find the new Outlook for Android calendar.
The older outlook.com app let the device read from and post to Outlook Calendar. Not so in the new app. This made the new app useless to me, as I have no use of an app who isolates itself from the device, so I stick with the older app until this problem is solved.
