  1. Adding a star automatically moves item to top of list

    With Wunderlist, I liked that adding a star to a list item automatically moved it to the top. Would like to see this feature implemented.

    We now have the All and Completed smart lists available across all platforms. Enable the lists in settings.

    It is also possible to print this list.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  13. "Next week" should be Monday not Sunday

    When selecting "Next Week" on a task, it should be set to Monday of Next week and not Sunday. Or at least this behavior should be configurable.

    On Windows, “Next week” in To Do picks up the system settings for next week which could be Sunday or Monday depending on how you’ve set it.
    On Android, iOS, Mac and Web “Next week” in To Do starts on Monday.

    Introducing app badge support in version 2.14.
    You now have three options for app badge notifications—Added to My Day and not completed, due and overdue, and turned off for those who don’t like to see those little red numbers.
    Set your preference app settings.

  15. Live Tile 2.0

    Live Tile is now available - GREAT! But only items from "My Day" are shown. Ok, it is possible to copy single items onto the "My Day" list, but they disappear at midnight, even if they are not closed. Please keep them on that list as long as they are not closed or cancelled from that list. Otherwise the Live Tile is every morning empty. Other possible solution would be to enable also the allocation of the task list, further prop lists or single items to the live tile. My which is a feature to keep items on the live…

    In our latest Windows update 1.48, you can now pin any list to the start menu. Right click on the list in the menu bar and choose Pin to Start.

    You can now assign tasks with our latest update, 1.62, on iOS, Android, web and Windows. Coming soon to Mac too.

    You will also see all the tasks assigned to you in the Assigned to Me list.

  18. Show Flagged Emails from Outlook

    Flagged emails need to show in the To-Do list as synced from Exchange. It should be the same as the "To-Do" section in Outlook 2016. Also, need to be able to add reminders for flagged emails!

  20. Add tags

    Tags would allow organization across lists and folders.

    Say I have a few tasks that all have the tag #amazon, I could hit the tag and see what other things I need to grab from Amazon regardless of the list or location.

    Another useful example would be for modules in a project, #backendAuth #frontendAuth #databaseStoreProcs, regardless of which sprint/list they're located in.
