      We’re closing this Idea as it is not clear what exactly is requested. To-Do has an option to reminders to any task item. You can set a reminder time by tapping on a task to open its Detail View.

    • Wunderlist's functions

      If you replace Wunderlist by this new app, this app must have the same functions of Wunderlist.

        While we are all on the same page and agree that To-Do needs to have more features and needs to be better than Wunderlist before it gets completely replaced, we don’t plan to add every single feature Wunderlist had.

        Some of Wunderlist’s features were not used a lot, or in need of dramatical improvements and changes. Starting a new App gives us the opportunity to start fresh and do things better.

        We are reviewing every single feature request here and decide on each idea and feature.

        I’m closing this thread here as it is simply too broad. Please instead add your votes to the individual feature requests.

      • Wunderlist

        Have all the features from Wunderlist

          Thank you everybody for the feedback! We don’t plan to add every single Wunderlist feature the same way to Microsoft To-Do. We are closely looking at every single functionality, and evaluate whether it is needed and what needs to be improved.

          Please vote for the individual feature requests here on Uservoice.

        • Retain Wunderlist star icon and color scheme

          Wunderlist is one of the few apps I use on a daily basis that I LOVE and to which I honestly feel an emotional connection. MSFT To-Do is as generic and corporate a name as imagineable and while I want to be optimistic about this successor to Wunderlist, can you please keep the WL branding/identity?

            • If "My Day" is empty also show the default To-Do list

              It would be nice to show the content of the default To-Do list if "My Day" is empty. Otherwise I need 1-3 additional clicks to show my To-Dos after launching the app.

              • Rename to Microsoft Wunderlist

                I really like the progress that's been made so far with Microsoft To-Do, and it's well on its way to replacing and upgrading Wunderlist.

                However, I feel that the name 'Microsoft To-Do', while accurately describing what it does, isn't very good. For me, it doesn't stand out, as there are already a plethora of apps called 'To Do' or 'Tasks' and it just seems too generic a name.

                I think renaming the app to 'Microsoft Wunderlist' would make a lot more sense.

                It makes the app stand out from the others, draws in a link from the existing Wunderlist for…

                • Integrate with Outlook.com and Exchange

                  App should mirror the task list feature in Outlook 2016 (or whatever) and give me the ability to share task lists with other users. Also, should appear as an app in the Outlook.com list. Also, sub-tasks should be easy and straightforward (think MS Project's nested task list).

                    As here are multiple suggestions in one, I’m closing this.

                    To-Do should already show tasks you have in Outlook Tasks. If they don’t please contact support :)

                  • Bug: Mac app has very slow UI. It takes approx 2 sec to switch list.

                    The app must be responsive. In this state it is unusable.
                    This happened after importing my Wunderlist.

                          • Translation suggestion for the name of default To-Do list in Simplified Chinese

                            In Simplified Chinese language, both Android app and web version shows To-Do, suggest to translate this to more appropriate name such as "收件箱" or "待办事项".

                            Not sure which is better since do not understand the meaning of current To-Do list. It should be something like "收件箱" if this is used as INBOX in GTD, . But if this list is still intended to be a todo list, maybe it is better to translate it to "待办事项" .

                            • Work account ASAP

                              Work and school accounts should be number one priority...since when do consumers get first dibs on anything? It should be incorporated with the out look app, just like the web and desktop versions of outlook. Currently I am using my personal account to utilize this app, because the recent appl update has cause sync issues with my apple reminders generic app.
