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.

        I Used To Do for the first time today, At first glance it looked cool, then I found it had no sub tasks, This was a great feature of Wunderlist hope this gets implemented soon into To Do, also The date under the task (Instead of at the end) make it look cluttered as does tasks that just get crossed out and not hidden, after half an hour I went back to Wunderlist hope these get sorted

        same here. I love wunderlist for that Feature, but do not consider changing to Microsoft until this is not available.

        Would be cool if sub tasks have a higher priority at Microsoft than sharing tasks.

        Really wait this feature. It will be so useful. When it happen i will use only Microsoft To-Do. Thank you for your job!

        and if sub tasks can be added to "today's list" will be useful

        Without Sub tasks I cant use Microsoft To-Do as my productivity tool.

        Agree with a lot of users that subtasks and having independent reminder's / due-dates are important for subtasks.

        For subtasks have a look at the app Top Task List in your Store. Great subtask structure.

        I've choocen To-Doist, because of Subtasks and a better task structure than Wunderlist (MS ToDo). Please, bring this and more features into this application and I'll use MS Todo ;-)

        I have been loving Wunderlist until I encountered (on my second day of use) the problem of subtasks not showing up. Seems like such a simple issue to fix. Please let me know when you've resolved it. I'm off to try other task managers that have this feature.

        As I wrote before:
        Microsoft is currently implementing the "Sharing" feature where you can share tasks lists with other people.
        If you want to see what features are currently under development just select to see "All ideas" and filter them by Status = Started.
        Same for status = planned (so you see what features are planned).

        So I think sub tasks will take a bit more time (maybe at the end of 2016/beginning of 2017, but this is just my personal opinion).

      • OLLI-SOLLI-S commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Adding a link in the notes of a task that points to an other task would be an fantastic idea.
        But in my opinion the subtasks should be implemented asap.

        As an interim step, can you at least allow me to get a persistent link to a task?

        So that I can paste it in the notes of the parent task
        Persistent so that the link doesn't break if I move the target task

      • OLLI-SOLLI-S commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        In my opinion subtasks are more important than sharing tasks.
        Unfortunately sharing tasks is currently under development, subtasks not.

        Было бы здорово, если бы при добавлении записи она высвечивалась уведомлением на других устройствах которые синхронизированны. Мы с женой часто используем список дел и покупок на двоих. И не понятно когда список изменился. Поэтому прошу добавить данную функцию
