Outlook Mail Integration
Having a quick way to convert emails in Outlook to tasks that show up in Microsoft To-Do.
If you have enabled the ‘Flagged email’ option from settings in To Do, then any email you flag in Outlook will show up under the ‘Flagged email’ smartlist.
From the Outlook web app, you can create a task out of an email by right-clicking —> Advanced actions —> Create task. You can also select a message in the body of an email and create a task out of it.
I use a different calendar in Outlook as my default calendar so it would be nice to be able to change the Original calender or add a different Outlook calendar to the lists
Steve Gaj commented
The new "My Family" calendar is not appearing. Would be good to include this. Also have a different icon for the calendars To Do. Group calendar to-do lists. Looks good so far though.
In outlook link calendar (evernote, Facebook, wunderlist)
Eric Johnson commented
One of the new features in the Outlook program is the extension feature. Wunderlist is there now. Please replace with To-Do
Tasks should have also option to add due time, this gives an opportunity to display them on calendar, but also sort by due date/time reorders list according to day flow and no need to manually sort.

Having "smart" entries in the to dos for sending email, etc. would be really great. Also consider allow the "call" option to use just a phone number (not a contact) and email just an email address. Should provide obvious actions (maybe with a pop-up menu) when clicking on the task.
The calendar list only show two of three calendars on my outlook account and nothing from my 365 exchange account

Love the idea of dynamic people tags for O365 Enterprise users... make all users available from Azure AD and Office Graph API so that their name in the task appears as a dynamic link. In certain apps (Windows desktop, web, etc) it could then surface a contact card with ability to skype call, email, etc.
Integrate/sync with Dynamics 365 and Outlook Tasks added from OneNote

When integrating as an Outlook Calendar Add-on, please make sure that it captures and shows the time due for the task. Always felt that showing all tasks as All Day was a major limitation of Wunderlist. Would like to see that improved with ToDo.

Yes please allow to-do tasks to appear on calendars within Outlook as well as display within Cortana. To-dos showing within Outlook is a must have in order for this to actually be used by many more people.

It should sync new to-do events back into Outlook

Missing syncronization with iCalendar and Outlook
Month and week view should a feature included in the to-do list app. Calendar should be integrated with Outlook.com calendar.
it shouldn't stop with the suggested services. Why don't show the task assigned to me in Planner also in my to-do app.
So the Project Owner can handle everything via Planner, but I can focus only on the task assigned to me beside my personal tasks, all in one app
Ben Stegink commented
While being able to flag an email in outlook is nice. Having an Add-In for Outlook (Desktop, Web and Mobile), so you can quickly create tasks from an email, assign it to a list, once sharing is there assign a person, set a due date, etc. would be the ideal scenario.
Also for Exchange 2010 and 2013
Grant Van Zyl commented
Rather than have calendar entries appear in the to-do list, to-do list items should appear in the calendar (as they do with Outlook desktop).
Definitely agree that flagged emails should appear as tasks in To-Do

It seem to sync with the outlook tasks so it shows up there in the desktop outlook client without installing anything but the app. Which is grate and removes the gaping hole ms left for Windows 10 Mobile users that upgraded Windows phone 8
Besides of synchonising with Microsoft account-enabled services, Todo should also be able to synchonise with on-premise Exchange installations (Todos in Outlook 2016)
