    You can now choose whether you want to move the starred task to the top of the list automatically. Set your option in Settings.

  2. 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.

  5. Customisable live tile

    It would be really useful if users were given the option to customise exactly what appears on the live tile rather than just the 'my day' list. There should be an option to have the live tile display the details for tasks flagged as 'important,' for example, which would be incredibly useful for users working on projects or assignments which haven't been added to the 'my day' list.

    Right to Left language should work in the app. Please check that the language settings are correct on your device as our app takes the settings from your device settings. If you still have issues then please contact support via the app support section.

  7. Need an easy way to add tasks to My Day

    I'd like to be able to look at a list and add tasks to My Day. It's easy to make a task Important by pressing the star button, but to add to My Day you have to open up each task.

    To add a task to My Day on iOS or Android you can swipe right on the task. On Windows and web you can right-click and choose Add to My Day.

  8. 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.

    This is now available on all apps. You can choose your option in settings.

  12. 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…

    We’ve now introduced the Completed smart list across all platforms in version 2.17.

    In addition, you’ll now see all your completed tasks grouped at the bottom of each list for easy access.

  16. Export To-do’s to a different list

    I would like to export my to-do’s to a different list within the app. This will help me achieve more organization in my day.

    Moving tasks to another list is possible on Windows and Web by dragging the task onto the other list in the sidebar.

    On Android and iOS, you need to enable “Edit” mode within the list.

  17. 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.

    Select your chosen task, this will take you into the detail view for the task. You can then edit the title by tapping/clicking on the title name.

  20. A Desktop App Microsoft To-Do would be great

    A Desktop App Microsoft To-Do would be a great idea (cf. Teams).
