How can we improve Microsoft To-Do?

Sub tasks

It would be cool, if we could add sub tasks to a single entry. The parent should be expandable, so that sub tasks would be visible at a glance, and progress should be visible without expanding the parent task.

        This product is great but I agree subtasks would the number 1 suggestion that would make it even better

        Come on, Microsoft! How hard can it be!? Or at least let us categorize tasks (like mails in Outlook)...

        Subtask is important feature when I use todo app for GTD. I hope this feature will be implemented ASAP.

        We're due for an update of the To-Do app.

        I'm afraid to use Wunderlist, not knowing what is going to happen to it. I switched back to Todoist in the meantime, but I really am waiting for MS to make this the Killer App that it can be! We're counting on you guys!!!

        If Subtasks aren't available on the day of forced switchover I'll be moving my company to another product.

        I really hope Microsoft implements the subtasks like Todoist.

        There I can have a list of tasks (all on the same level) and with one key press (or one mouse click) I can indent a task to a subtask.
        So I can have a tree structure of tasks (like "Task -> Subtask -> Sub-Subtask -> Sub-Sub-Subtask").
        Before anybody complains about complexity: you don't have to use it!

        And subtasks have the same attributes like tasks (they have a due date, comments, tags, categories, attachments, etc).

        Nobody forces you (Anonymous) to use subtasks.
        If you like to have s simple and flat list, this is OK (you don't have to use subtasks).
        But many other people like them, so it is good that Microsoft is implementing this feature!
        I just hope it is coming this year!

        I disagree with this. This is not a project management system. Use MS Project or Excel for subtasks. If you want this type of functionality, create new lists. This is a parent-child relationship.

        I just want a simple To-Do list, nothing more

        Hello!
        People at Microsoft: please, read our claims!!! The feature here stated is a must for all of us who trust on your app!!!
        I hope you answer this ASAP
