How can we improve Excel for Windows (Desktop Application)?

Enable Excel to send a Task to Outlook

Some users use Excel for tracking of various tasks or operational reviews. At the end, follow-up minutes and tasks will have to be created. It would be great to have a function like in OneNote to create a Task in Outlook. Information about Due Date and Assignee should be embeddable into the cell with a little popup window.
When in Outlook, you should be able to click the task and go back to the Excel document (and specific cell) stored on the SharePoint.

    I support this. Linking a file to a task or calendar item would be helpful as many files are only revisited every year or quarter and this feature would help find the file and remember to-do.
