  1. 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!

  2. # 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.

  3. 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.

  6. Add to Tomorrow

    Some people like to plan their day the night before. Let us "Add to Tomorrow" to help with that. Also should allow a task not completed Today to be rescheduled for Tomorrow.

  7. Tag and notify people

    I want to be able to tag people in the comments section so that they get a notification when a comment is added on a task. At the moment we can only assign tasks to people, but for a more effective flow of information, it would help to be able to notify people when comments are added.

  9. 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. Plan tomorrow, today

    There's no option to plan tomorrow the day before? This is the make or break for me, for now i'll stick to pen and paper until you make this a feature (not sure why it wouldn't be as 99% of people plan their day the night before)

  11. Add a notes field to flags for Outlook Email

    It is great to be able to flag an email and put a date to follow up, but when that date is well into the future or if you need to complete steps prior to finalizing the task, it would be helpful to be able to include a note on the flagged item so that you don't need to go into another program to track it.

  12. "My Tomorrow" please

    Add "My Tomorrow" in addition to "My Day". I like to plan a day in advance. Or make "My Day" more customizable.

  13. 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.

  14. Priority Levels

    It will be very helpful if Priority list like
    Priority A-D or priority levels are given in such ways that tasks remains in their original list but also appears as per Priority List in Smart List interface on Top of the task list.

    Thanks

  15. Adding due dates to steps

    Could there be a way to add a due date to an added step within a task? A big issue we have is that we like Tasks to be our larger projects and then add steps for specific items within a project. Adding a due date feature to those sub steps would help us track larger projects better.

  16. 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!

  18. 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.

  19. « My day » is nice, why not similar « Magic Lists » for other slots such as my hour, my week, my week-end, ...?

    Insuring coherent evolution of each « magic period »: if I add a task in my Day, my week is updated, if I cancel in My Week, it is cancelled also in My Day and My Hour, ...
    Nice also: My morning, My Afternoon, My Evening, My Night. My Month...
    Associated complementary Feature: « magic periods » can be not yet started : I can prepare My week-end that way rather than attaching a completion date or a recall (which does not automatize its appearance in « My X » nor position it as first choice proposed)

    I did not find in this idea in the uservoice…

  20. 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.
