    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.

  4. 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.

  7. Bug: iPad Calendar Display when Due Date is Low on Screen, Can’t access full calendar when you select “Pick a Date

    The Calendar Display option is different on the iPhone and the iPad (Landscape mode). On the iPhone, when you click on the Due Date, you can always see the FULL view of the calendar. But, on the iPad that is NOT the case. If the Due Date displays low in the lower right corner, when you click on Due Due and choose Pick a Date, you may only see HALF of the calendar, withOUT the ability to see the bottom couple of weeks. On the iPhone you always see the full calendar when you select Pick a Date, regardless of…

    This is implemented on Windows, Web and Android. We are also working on enabling this on iOS

  9. When adding to "My Day," have a drop down menu of your lists to choose which list the task goes with.

    I work for two different Realtors plus I have a personal list. I'd like to be able to add a task to My Day without first having to go to the appropriate list, add the task, then click "add to my day."

    Hiding completed tasks from Search results is now possible in the Windows 10 App and in the Android app of Microsoft To-Do.

    We will also look into bringing the option to iOS and Web.

  11. Weekly view for To-Do

    "My day" panel is really useful, but we also need look and have present always our week goals. The possibility bump all our to-dos help to declutter our mind, but this doesn't have sense if we can't organize or order them. So by this reason think is necesary a week view or a monthly view, even a more especific dayly view (maybe by hour or by morning/afternoon/night) could be really productive.

    This week we’re rolling out a brand new Planned list on Android (version 2.17) which gives you a 7 day week view. You can view the tasks by day or by list.

    It will be coming soon to other platforms.

  13. Inconsistent UI for completed item on iOS

    Some of the completed items have a line cross over them, but some of the items don't have that line (they just have a lighter color to indicate they are completed). Please fix it.

    We now have the All and Completed smart lists across all platforms.

    We also have a brand new Planned list, rolling out now on Android (version 2.17), and coming soon to other platforms. Here you get a distinct Tomorrow and Week view. You can also group the view by list.

    Our team is working on a solution to show tasks with due dates on the Outlook.com / O365 calendar. We unfortunately can’t provide an ETA on this yet, but we can assure you that we listen to your requests for it.

  17. "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.

    While this works on certain platform like Windows 10, changing the first day of the week does not yet work on iOS. This is an improvement we are working on

    With the last update of To-Do across platforms we have enabled the option to see flagged emails from Outlook as Tasks in Microsoft To-Do. Simply flag an email in Outlook to create a task from it in To-Do.

    You can enable this feature in Microsoft To-Do from within the App Settings.

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

  20. Natural language support

    When entering to-do's you should be able to enter the item with natural language such as "Meeting with John today at 3pm" or any number of a wide range of ways. The app would know that it needs to be done today at 3pm. Other shortcuts should be supported including the reoccurring items such as "the second Monday of each month".

    Natural language is faster to enter items vs selecting each field. After you enter the task with natural language there should be some visual que that tells you the system has recognized the item such as date, time, list,…
