  1. Push notifications on shared lists

    Everyone on a shared list should be able to get notified when entries are added or completed on these shared lists via push notifications on phone. Not via email.

  2. Sub tasks

    It would be cool, if we could add sub tasks to a single entry. The parent should be expandable, so that sub tasks would be visible at a glance, and progress should be visible without expanding the parent task.

  4. Priority Levels

    You might have Most Important Task, or Important Task, or even a Bump List. Some Tasks are more important than others, So a Priority Level would be nice.

    Level 1 to Level 10

    Or Task Catagories: "Simple Quick Tasks", "Bump List",

    Importance is now available in version 1.35. Just star your to-dos with the highest priority and sort by Importance to have them move to the top of your list.

  5. Flagged emails show up from the Spam folder too

    I like the Flagged Emails feature showing up in ToDo. However, spammers are sending emails with the FLAG flag set on them. These emails are present in the junk folder so our emails systems clearly caught them. They have the Flag flag already set when they show up in my Spam folder, I don't set the flag. Yet ToDo shows these spam+flag emails in the Flagged Emails view. IMO, just ignore anything in the Spam folder.

    Hi, this issue should be fixed now. Please let us know if you are still seeing any flagged spam emails coming through.

    You can now use Microsoft To-Do with Cortana! Just follow the instructions here: support.office.com/article/using-microsoft-..? to get set up.

    Please note that if you’ve previously used Cortana with Wunderlist, you will need to manually disconnect Wunderlist from Cortana.

    The integration is also only available in English and in the following regions — Australia, India, US, and UK

    With version 1.33 we’ve added list options to My Day, so you can now select your background, sort your to-dos and choose to hide your completed to-dos there. The update should now be available in the Microsoft Store, Google Play Store, iOS App Store, as well as on to-do.microsoft.com in the browser.

  9. Live Tiles

    The app should give a list of current todos on the back side of a live tile

    With the release of version 1.40 we now support Live Tiles. Just head to your Windows Start menu and right-click on Microsoft To-Do. Then select Pin to Start and a tile showing your My Day list will be pinned to your Start screen.

    With the latest version of To-Do you can now see your flagged emails from the Mail app as tasks in To-Do. Simply download the latest version of To-Do, enable the feature in Settings and you’ll see the list for flagged items show up in the sidebar.

    You can get the latest version of To-Do on https://products.office.com/en-us/microsoft-to-do-list-app

  12. Integrate with Outlook Mobile

  13. Hide completed tasks in My Day

    Much like Wunderlist, I like when I close out a task to see it removed (hidden) so I can see my list getting shorter during the day or week.

    Currently on "My Day" I have to manually right-click to remove a completed task, which feels like I need to click 2-3 times to close a task.

    Maybe consider adding the "hide complete tasks" options either site-wide or on this page as well. You have it everywhere else already (other lists)

  14. Steps / Subtasks in recurring tasks should get uncompleted in the next occurence

    if the task repeats everyday, then the steps should reset to undone in the next day, though they have been finished then.

    This has been fixed, so steps get uncompleted in the new recurring task instance.

  15. Themes

    Please add more backgrounds and colors for the theme options and also let us choose a custom background.

    Thank you for all the votes and comments here! We are closing this feature suggestion as we have implemented an option to set background images for each list with version 2.0 of To Do. In case you have additional requests, please vote on the separate thread for more specific ideas.

  16. Microsoft Flow Integration

    Microsoft Flow currently supports Wunderlist and Todoist. Offering support for Microsoft To-Do would mean, that a lot of automations could work with this service as well (e.g. create a To-Do if I'm mentioned in a certain mail, etc.) This would enhance this service greatly

    We are happy to announce that you can now integrate Microsoft To-Do with Microsoft Flow.

    To create a flow using Microsoft To-Do, log in to Microsoft Flow with the same Microsoft Account you use with Microsoft To-Do. Then just select the connector or service you’d like to send a to-do from.

    You’ll then have the option to select the trigger you’d like to begin your flow, such as When a new email arrives. Now select + New step and then Add an action. From the available actions, select Microsoft To-Do – Add a to-do. You’ll also need to enter the Subject field in order to add a title for your to-do. Then select Save flow and you’re ready to go!

  17. Make it like Wunderlist!

    Make it like Wunderlist! You own Wunderlist so why not just rename Wunderlist instead of starting with a new and featured challenged app!

    Today we’ve launched a brand new version of To Do. We took on your feedback and brought back some design elements of Wunderlist, but with a refresh. Now you can customize each list with a different background and choose from images (including that Berlin tower), color and pastel backgrounds.

    Read more about it here – https://aka.ms/m365blog/newtodo. And let us know what you think over on Twitter – https://twitter.com/MicrosoftToDo or Facebook – https://Facebook.com/MicrosoftToDo
    We’ve also recently launched our Mac app, list groups and task assignments.

    We’ll close this thread now. If there are still features that you would like to see please vote for them on the separate feature suggestions.

    We hope you love the new look as much as we do.

  18. Less hidden Recurring items

    I don't see any way of setting reminders or recurring items, as you can with Wunderlist. I don't see the point of the app, otherwise.

    Thank you for all your feedback! We have now updated the design of the Detail View to always show the Repeat option. This makes the feature easier to discover and quicker to use.

  20. Microsoft Launcher (Arrow Launcher) integration

    Wunderlist was cleanly integrated into arrow launcher. This new application is currently not.

    The latest Microsoft Launcher update includes an integration with To-Do. Just update to Launcher version 5.1 to get it.
