    In 2017 this is a minimum must-have feature to manage actions related to specific content within the document.

    Google Docs have got it right:

    Send a comment to a specific person
    To make sure someone sees a comment, you can add them to it. They will receive an email notification with your comment.
    1. Open a document, spreadsheet, or presentation.
    2. Insert and type a comment.
    3. Somewhere in your comment, add the name (with the first letter capitalized). When the correct person is suggested click their name. You can also add the email address of the person you want to see the message.
    4. Click Comment.
    Note: If you add someone who doesn't have permission to see the file, you will be asked to share the file.

    Spot-on!

    Dear MS, if you are still going to reinvent productivity, why not make the core TASKS/TO-DO functionality in Outlook/O365 finally work properly?

    I. Unify the core task functionality to get consistent view across devices:
    • Enable the necessary Outlook Desktop Tasks functionality (e.g. filters, grouping, views) on the web/mobile. The total number of both Outlook flagged items and tasks of an average user can easily go beyond several hundreds. Managing the priorities and contexts there without custom filters/grouping by categories/viewes is close to impossible.

    II. Unify the entire task functionality stack across O365, personal and business applications:
    • Make sure that any new task management related initiatives (Wunderlist, Planner, GigJam) do not duplicate and are properly linked to the core functionality already in use (Outlook Tasks + OneNote).

    • Support easy-to-use SharePoint, Project, and Dynamics CRM/ERP integration.

    • Enable one unified view/application to aggregate all the tasks.

    • Tightly integrate the aforementioned additional features/services into one experience.

    III. Keep improving the usefulness and usability of the task management functionality: extending the range of features supported and syncing across all devices/platforms, better supporting end-to-end methodologies like GTD etc.

    Hi All,

    Thanks for this request. We are rolling out the links to planner boards for groups in Outlook desktop from the group card, so that should help get to the planner task list.
    This request seems to be asking for the Outlook desktop tasks list to also show planner tasks. Can you help us understand the use cases and details on the actions you expect to perform with planner tasks in Outlook?

    Thanks.

    Makes a lot of sense!

    Hey MS, if you are still going to reinvent productivity, why not make the core TASKS/TO-DO functionality in Outlook/O365 finally work properly?

    1. First off, enable the much needed Outlook Desktop Tasks functionality (e.g. filters, grouping, views) on the web/mobile.

    2. Next, make sure that any new Task Management related initiatives (Wunderlist, Planner, GigJam) are properly linked to the core functionality already in use (Outlook Tasks + OneNote).

    3. After some 10 years of close to no progress, start improving the usefulness and usability of the Tasks functionality (Tasks in Outlook Desktop + O365 Oulook). Potentially by tightly integrating the aforementioned additional features/services.

    4. Support easy-to-use SharePoint, Project, and Dynamics CRM/ERP integration.
