How can we improve Microsoft To-Do?

Priority Levels

You might have Most Important Task, or Important Task, or even a Bump List. Some Tasks are more important than others, So a Priority Level would be nice.

Level 1 to Level 10

Or Task Catagories: "Simple Quick Tasks", "Bump List",

        The tool needs the ability to seamlessly integrate with Outlook Tasks and the category function. As it stands, the tool is unusable with the GTD system.

        I don't really care whether the label is 1,2,3, high/med/low, or a,b,c. I just need a way to prioritize my tasks. Ideally, it would be nice to have options but getting us something is more important.

        i agree too!
        But in my opinion, one level is enough.
        Moreover, the higher levels should sort to the top of the list.

        Isso seria extremamente importante e significativo.
        Sinto falta de prioridades em pelo menos 3 níveis.

        A very useful feature - to be able to prioritise tasks at both main task level and sub-task level.

        I use a kind of tags in front. (Real tags work to, but I use them already for importance ABCD and duration 123...)
        ^1
        ^2
        ^3

        You want to be able to know what can wait and what cant without opening up the task

        It seems to me that everybody uses priorities in different ways. Some use 1-n, some use high/medium/low, personally I prefer today/this week/this month (which is more scheduling than prioritization, but still..).
        Adding the ability to categorize or tag tasks would accommodate all the different ways.

        I really wonder how long this feature will take (if it is "Under Review" and not "Planned" or "Started").

        Please sure to make this so Priority and/or Importance fields will be consistent with Outlook and Microsoft Project + Sharepoint so we can have the same data across enterprise regardless of platform accessing or displaying or modifying the data.
