  1. Outlook Mail Integration

    Outlook Mail
    Flagged items appear as Tasks
    Integrate or replicate functionality of Outlook Tasks where you can assign start date, due date, status, priority.. etc

    People
    Items like Call <someone on Contact list> or Follow up with <someone on contact list> would be nice if they are connected and you can just click on the persons name name and get details (email, phone, calendar, status..etc )

      Supporting Flagged Items from Outlook in order to show them as to-dos in our app is something we have definitely planned.
      In addition we plan to support other Microsoft products, like Calendar and Cortana as well.

    • Attach files

      Attach word doc I am working on so I can open directly from todo entry and continue.

                • 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,…

                    We have plans to add an option to enter due date and possibly more by using text recognition. We can’t give a timeline for this yet, but it’s on our roadmap.

                  • 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)

                        If Microsoft is going to give us a new to-do product, it needs to integrate with all the other existing Microsoft products: Cortana Reminders, Planner, TFS, Outlook Tasks, MS Project.

                        • 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.
