    Push notifications on shared lists for personal accounts is available in To Do. Push notifications for AAD accounts (work and school accounts) is work in progress and will be enabled soon.

  3. Color coding / Colour coding

    I would love if I could color code the parts of my list so I can easily look at the parts of the list categorically at a glance! I absolutely love Microsoft To Do!

  4. # Tag search

    The input tag list is displayed and I need to select the existing tag and input it when I enter a todo.
    Also, when searching, it would be nice to have a function to search by various combinations of tags and text.

  5. Widget Customization

    Please make Android widget customizable.
    Add options like, to :-

    1 Adjust transparency
    2 Add rounded corners
    3 Resize font

    So that it can be matched with wallpaper, theme or taste of the user.

    Because Widget is the thing that everybody see all day to remember without open the app so it becomes Important.

  6. Start Dates and Due Dates

    In Omnifocus, I can set a "start date", which is the date that the task is available to be worked on. We can choose the view (for example "all future tasks", "all visible or available tasks"). With this feature it is possible to better organize the future due dates and tasks, hiding the tasks of a far future. It would be welcome in MS ToDo.

  10. Sort "Completed" tasks

    I LOVE that the "completed" tasks where moved under the "pending" tasks, however, now I don't have the option to sort my COMPLETED tasks anymore since the switch.

    One of my FAVORITE features switching from wunderlust to To-Do was that although my completed and pending tasks where together, i could see my completed alphabetically. since I use it for grocery shopping I just uncheck the food i need every week and its handy to sort through it alphabetically when I need to add things throughout the week.

    PLEASE give me the option to sort my completed tasks again!

  12. Share Group

    Provide option to share a Group created with other users. Currently have to share per list in a Group Manually and have to track if missed to share any list in a group with others.
    I would be fantastic to have sharing options like Parent/Child settings. Like Child List inherent sharing options from Group Parent or can have unique permissions.

  13. Create a 'My Day' but for the next day

    Create the 'My Day' option for the next day (tomorrow). Having this option makes it easier to add tasks rather having to wait for the next day to add them to 'My Day'. You can also place the tasks from 'Next Day' that are incomplete and move to 'My Day' once the day is over.

  14. Tag Management

    Tags are required of even the simplest task list management app. The primary factor is that the system cannot answer the simplest of queries or set up dynamic ‘smart’ lists that evaluate tags as well as system variables such as @now, @tomorrow, before 3pm tomorrow, @here, @arriving, @leaving, @main-residence, @home-office, not assigned to @accounting, @importance(user-defined values for multiple variables, Boolean logic, system variables), @repeating, @overdue, #way-overdue, etc.) to provide users with some basic insight needed to choose what to do when. That’s the reason for building an app that people need because they can’t get by with keeping their lists…

  15. Alphabetize completed items

    It seems like this is a new problem and wunder list had that problem. Before this week, to do would allow you to alphabetize completed and not completed together which was an extra step but at least it was alphabetized. As of this week the lists can no longer be merged so completed cannot be alphabetized at all. Please let us Alphabetize the completed section too!

  17. Open email with Outlook Desktop

    Thanks for the Flagged mail connection. It would be great if the email could open in Outlook Desktop instead of OWA.

  18. Immersive Reader

    We would love for Immersive Reader to be in Microsoft To-Do. It is integral for all people to be able to access tasks being assigned in work and in education. Immersive Reader can read and translate tasks assigned by the user or by others utlizing To-Do.

    While we aren’t creating a My Day version that you can plan the night before at the moment, we have made significant updates to our Planned list.

    Rolling out now on Android (version 2.17), and coming soon to other platforms, you can now view a distinct tomorrow view in the Planned list. You can also group the view by lists so that you have a view of all the different projects the tasks from. You can choose to close list sections so that you only concentrate on one list section at a time.

  20. Automatic populating of My Day

    I have several Lists each with numerous actions. I assign Due Dates to each action. Every day I have to troll through all my actions and Add to My Day on all those actions which are due today. It would save an awful lot of time if an algorithm could be devised by Microsoft which automatically registers those actions due today in My Day

    While we aren’t adding automatic population of due dates to My Day at the moment, we have made some significant changes to the Planned list.

    Rolling out on Android now (version 2.17), and coming soon to other platforms, you can now see a distinct Today view in the Planned list. You can also choose to group this view by list so that you get a view of what you have to do today across all your lists. You can choose to close particular lists e.g. Home if you don’t want to see it while at work.
