Thank you for your feedback. The feature to track tasks is available by using the 'Outlook category' feature. Please refer to the following link for more information: Use Outlook category for tracking.

Sincerely,

For a good user experience, it must be possible to track a task AND to set regard for a task created in Outlook to Dynamics 365 Online instance using dynamics 365 App for Outlook. Handling should be like tracking e-mails or appointments

Very disappointing as an end user of Dynamics that you would not include task tracking within Outlook as per past functionality with the Outlook client. A big part of the reason we selected Dynamics for our CRM platform was the seamless integration with Outlook. It has become increasingly less seamless over the years and we will be reviewing moving to SalesForce in the future.

What is the latest from Microsoft on when this will be rolled out? Seems like a an obvious one to do and more or less a must have.

Hello, Any news about this feature ?

We definitely need this feature! It was available with the old plugin. Why take it away for the app? It doesn't make sense.

Totally agree, this is needed by our organization as well!

Why would Microsoft decide to roll this out without this key feature that was available in the old version?!!  Surely this must be on their roadmap - can we have some update on this please?

We are not able to track tasks with the Dynamics app for Outlook. Please add this feature ASAP.
