How can we improve Microsoft To-Do?

Microsoft Flow Integration

Microsoft Flow currently supports Wunderlist and Todoist. Offering support for Microsoft To-Do would mean, that a lot of automations could work with this service as well (e.g. create a To-Do if I'm mentioned in a certain mail, etc.) This would enhance this service greatly

We are happy to announce that you can now integrate Microsoft To-Do with Microsoft Flow.

To create a flow using Microsoft To-Do, log in to Microsoft Flow with the same Microsoft Account you use with Microsoft To-Do. Then just select the connector or service you’d like to send a to-do from.

You’ll then have the option to select the trigger you’d like to begin your flow, such as When a new email arrives. Now select + New step and then Add an action. From the available actions, select Microsoft To-Do – Add a to-do. You’ll also need to enter the Subject field in order to add a title for your to-do. Then select Save flow and you’re ready to go!

    Please add the ability to add attachments to the task when created in Flow from an email.

    Is there any update about a "personal" to-do integration, with Microsoft Accounts ?

  • Pedro commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Is there a way to schedule a microsoft teams message with the summary of the tasks completed during that week? There doesn't seem to be a "completed" status field or a "completed date" field in microsoft flow, which is a shame. Nice to see progress with Flow integration though.

    @Bodo, as i already mentioned below, i contacted Microsoft about this error. There explanation is that the connector does not support MSA accounts (which to them is Microsoft Internet Account like live.com, outlook.com addresses. Again according to their support team, they will publish a new connector that will support MSA accounts. I also asked to better document it, but all they added was '(business)' in the connector page.

    Unfortunately I'm facing an error message with an authorization problem... The German error message is the following...
    "Überprüfen Sie Ihre Kontoinformationen und/oder Berechtigungen, und versuchen Sie es noch mal."

    I'd bei really glad to use To-Do with Alexa but as long there's no Integration (e.g. via flow or IFTTT) I have to stick with Google tasks.

    It is quite unfortunate that "Microsoft Flow integration" is considered "COMPLETED" when only a minimum support for actions is implemented. I had a bunch of automation set up in Flow with Wunderlist but it was mostly based on *triggers*.

    There needs to be a lot more done here:
    - Trigger when task is completed
    - Action to get the to-dos in a list (strangely there is one to get the lists but not the to-dos themselves)
    - Action to update an existing task
    - Action to delete a task

    I'm also facing the permissions issue, what a pitty... Can't wait for it too work.

  • Danny commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Same issue here (with outlook.com account): "Please check your account info and/or permissions and try again.". Signing out and removing the account did not work. Contacted MS Support, they have no clue, they will investigate, i also gave them link to this page.

    Also, for anyone having troubles with permissions, follow the flow dialogues and make sure you sign in again. It should open another browser window asking what account you want to use for To Do.

    Just used it, amazing! Thank you! It can essentially really automate my task lists! Way to go guys!

    Super excited for this feature. Unfortunately, I can't get the connector to work. I always get: "Please check your account info and/or permissions and try again.". The connection is shown to be ok, when I look in the Connections overview.

    Hi Marcel,

    thanks for the update!
    The integration sadly still doesn't work... I get the following error massage:
    "Please check your account info and/or permissions and try again."

    I tried it with my personal and business Office365 account, but I get the same error message. Is this because of some regional settings or because of the To-Do connector being still "preview"?

    Best,
    Boris

    This missing but obvious feature is the reason why I downloaded flow. I hoped to be able to use this as a workaround for a missing synchronization of flaged e-mails between outlook and to-do. Both are missing, this surprise me substantially

  • Joel Semeniuk commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This is super important - here is a scenario. I'm really bad when following up on email when I'm travelling and always on my mobile. Without Outlook mobile I flag emails that I should followup.. but forget about them anyway. I want to flag an email then have a TODO item created for me with a due date of +1 days.

    Add it to IFTTT or Flow so that we can utilize Alexa or Google Home please!
