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",

        we really need this feature, I have too many tasks and I need to set a high priority for the the most important ones.

        As a college student, I find prioritizing my tasks and to-dos extremely useful. In your prior task manager 'wunderlist'. I enjoyed having such possibility. I would appreciate if this feature migrated/ came to your new task manager Microsoft To-Do.

        I think customizable task labels or categories might do it. Personally I really value systems that use today, tomorrow, this week, next week, someday. But I can also see that colored labels, whether matching Outlook or or custom, would be important in orgs for setting priorities beyond personal: my boss, my team, our critical project, etc.

        I disagree and think priorities are simply going to add unnecessary clutter to the interface. If you'd like to integrate something along these lines, add tags to the individual to-dos instead. This would be an incredibly more effective addition and would allow those that desire prioritization the ability to customize for their own purposes.

        Matching the priority levels in Outlook would be great, but at the very least give me a star or something to highlight certain items, like is in Wunderlist (I'm switching over from).

        Would like the ability to assign a priority to each task and subtask, and be able to sort the To-Do list by priority

      • Giuliana Villani commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'd really like to be able to assign a priority level to my tasks and, altogether, assign a color (based on a color code previously defined) so that I can visually identify the most urgent tasks among the others.
        As I imagine it, there would be no small colored bullet but a full colored activity background so that the visual impact is very strong and clear at first sight.

        I just hashtag my priorities #P1 #P2 etc... I can quickly search on a hashtag to see my priority ones (#P1)

        Very important for me, maybe not level 1 ~ 10 so detailed but at least the "Star" task

      • Jim commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I completely agree. At the moment, I am forced to adjust priority either by due date (which is not an accurate use of this function) or by creating a separate To do list for priority items.

      • Lindsey commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes I would love this. Even on a per list level and not necessarily a per item level would be nice, and for it to affect the my day suggestions (higher priority items suggested first, low priority items suggested less or never)
