  1. 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

    Our initial plan with My Day was to make a space where users had to be more intentional about what they could actually accomplish today. Due dates may be set for today but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have the time to tick them off. By not automatically adding them to My Day, we’re trying to keep the user from getting overwhelmed. Tasks due today should appear in Suggestions so that it is easier to add them from there. That being said, we are looking at feedback and discussing the benefits of automatic population.

  2. Create a To Do List for Tomorrow

    You plan your next day of to dos and it would be helpful to created the to do list for tomorrow at the end of the business day

  4. KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS

    It's really astonishing that there are no keyboard shortcuts for To-do (unless I'm really missing something). This is particularly essential for to-do lists - you want to be able to mark things as done or important, put them on My Day and so on without breaking up flow.

  10. Ability to backup/export all lists

    Ability to backup/export all lists. Either to CSV/PDF/Excel and/or a backup file so that we can restore in the event of something going wrong with my lists or the Exchange server that hosts the lists. We need some level of assurance that our precious lists are safe!

  12. Add button to hide/show completed items

    Rather than having option to hide/show them in menu create a switch on top of list to quickly toggle between the two views.

    Multiple Account Support is now also available in Microsoft To-Do on Windows. If you upgrade to the latest version 1.51 through the Microsoft Store, you will be able to add all your accounts to the app and switch between them without signing out and back in.
    On Android, the option is also available already. We do have plans to bring this to more platforms in the future.

  15. Allow for multiple priority levels

    Outlook tasks have 3 priority levels and this app only has two.

  17. Chain parent To-Do's

    It will be nice to have the ability to chain parent To-Do's, so you can see one after another. Specially when you don't know when you're going to finish a task and you can't set an hour for the next one, so instead you can just add it to the stack so they can appear too in the Planned view, after the first task.

  19. Azure DevOps Integration

    It would be great to have an integration with Azure DevOps' work items. Similarly to the Outlook flagged emails integration, a task linked to work item in Azure DevOps could have a detail section which would give a preview of the work item and include a link to view its complete version in Azure DevOps.
