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, etc.
Todoist supports this and if you want people to change platforms this is a must have feature.
Yes, as stated so many times, this is the #1 feature that I like other's are waiting for to jump ship from TODOIST. Please create this feature as soon as you can. Thank you.

The only feature I want before I change Todo app.
In august 2019, it still not support Natural language. it disappointment
Any updates on this?
Favorite feature from Wunderlist and might find another app simply because of this feature not included in this app from a company you have already purchased.
Important to be easy to incluide new tasks

This would save a lot of time to me. It's a pain to enter a new task, then click on the task again, select due date, and select the date.
After 2 yeas, such 'core competitence' feature is still not yet implemented. What are you doing Microsoft?

This is something that is still keeping me from switching to To-do from Wunderlist. I mass input all of my school assignments when I get a syllabus, and natural language support saves so many clicks.

Also add ability to use
- @ to tag / assign task to someone else
- # to specify project / folder
- ! to specify importance
I just shifted from Todoist app and hope that Microsoft Todo will have the similar feature
Shifted to Microsoft todo recently from tick tick for a more simpler app but it doesn't have a natural language feature.
That would have been great for due dates reminder etc. 🙏

I love Microsoft To-Do More still need many things, but syncing with Outlook calendar and natural language support having these two To-Do support will be the best.
Need this so badly

As mentioned in other comments, this is keeping me from just competely forgetting about something like Todoist.
Just copy it from Todoist. Probably not so hard to implement, you can start to offer natural language for simple task and continue adding it for recurring tasks, etc.

OMG. Yes, please!
This is the main thing keeping me from switching from todoist.
