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",
Importance is now available in version 1.35. Just star your to-dos with the highest priority and sort by Importance to have them move to the top of your list.
Allow users to either drag and drop list items to their desired priority and/or provide a dropdown list of numbers to set a given priority. I'm a software engineer myself and this seems like basic, expected functionality.
FYI, if there is a drag and drop feature, it's buggy. The task or list item gets caught midway through the drag forcing the user to restart the app. Not a great user experience.
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT I CAN'T MANUALLY SORT MY PLANNED TASKS.
AND HOW THE HELL THERE IS A "MY DAY TODAY" LIST BUT NOT A "MY DAY TOMORROW" LIST? NO ONE PLANS THEIR DAY IN THE DAY ITSELF.
THIS HAS JUST RUINED MY DAY.

Adding a single star is not satisfactory. There needs to be at least four different priority levels. That could be numbers, letters, different colors of stars, but there needs to be something. If there were multiple priority levels we could make the Covey and other systems work.
Why can't we simply be allowed to drag items within the Important list to sit in any order we want, like you can in any other category/list?
my therapist wants me to ideally have three priority levels, this doesn't account for this case, nor does it let me custom program a "smart list" (which in my opinion would solve my problem)
More than two leves of priority is needed to manage tasks. Another way around this is to allow us to configure the priorities we want to use in the settings and we can set whatever priority we want.
Two levels of importance isn't priority. Even Outlook has 3 by default (with ability to set up custom priorities). Just like the default sorting by Creation date, this makes me question if the team working on ToDo has ANY experience whatsoever, no matter how basic, in task management. This is like having a team of blind people design interior decorations.
HI, Please make it covey compatible. allow for two level sorting: for example: sort by date, and then sort by priority within date. and more than 3 levels of priority. maybe i am doing it wrong, but i use up to 4...
Like many of the commenters already posted, I am disappointed with Microsoft To Do App. I used Franklin Covey method with much satisfaction as a paper product. Then I moved to Wunderlist with less satisfying results. When Microsoft To Do took over Wunderlist, I was expecting significant improvements. This is much worse. I would like the ability to share lists again. Like everyone else already discussed, I need to execute levels of prioritization beyond a simple star.
Check the Franklin Covey method of A, B, C levels and then prioritization within each of those.

No, this is NOT yet available !!!
Whats the status with this? Is Microsoft going to do this anytime soon? There should be a 1-5 Star System at least and the opportunity to prioritize new tasks directly when you create them. Also we need the ability to sort by importance as it is already just that 5 stars are shown at the top then 4, then 3.. to one star.

I rearly thought I could use To Do for my Job tasks as well, but without priority Levels (f.e. 3: high, medium, low) it is almost useless to tag dayli changing todos. Not all the todo jobs have a date when they have to be finished. But they have a different priority how urgent they are to be finished.

Wow, what a joke. The request was for a 1 to 10 priority setting, and they added a STAR?!? I'm starting to wonder if Microsoft is intentionally mocking its users at this point.
Like the user Mio I have just moved from Todilist to MS To Do, the primary component that differentiates is the significantly more comprehensive priority functionality in Todolist.
At this stage I want to keep moving forward with Ms To Do, however the limited priority functionality is pretty close to a showstopper.
Can Microsoft reconsider its position on this?
THIS IS NOT WHAT WE ASKED FOR!!
We asked for 3 Priority Levels as HIGH, NORMAL and LOW PRIORITY!
A star? Please guys, you can do better! Try to use some other to-do apps like todoist (one of my favorite) and sneak a peak in each, everyone has features that people love.
I really want to stay loyal to microsoft product and this is a life changing feature in to-do and plannig lists.
We voted for, and quote, "(...) So a Priority Level would be nice.
Level 1 to Level 10
Or Task Catagories:(...)"
We didn't asked for a simple star
Sina tanha commented
:)) this idea taged as completed ? :))))))
Completed? Are you kidding me?
I just try to change from Todoist to this MS product, because here I have the possibility to upload some documents for free:-)
But it is really a bit annoying that "todo" does only have one level for the priority, this is not a good solution, guess 5 Stars are the best solution for a rating. And I'm sure this can not be a big deal to change the code for that!?
Would be really nice if we got more priorities in the next versions.
One star is not a solution for working with lot of tasks and using more levels of priority!
@Keturah Cummings: One star is no solution for priorities 0 to 10, it´s just 0 to 1 ...
