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",
IMHO priorities scale Hi-Med-Low or 0-9 is not needed since item reordering is already there. Instead, 2-D system (Importance+Urgency: 4 buckets) would help the planning better.
Currently, I am already simulating prioritization by item prefix + sorting alphabetically.
Sadly there isn't a feature to vote against an idea. Priority is set by the order of the list imho.
+1 for colored categories
I came to this site to request this feature. Even an A, B, C priority listing would be helpful

Yeah I was just about to post similar. I'm reading 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People', and one section talks about tasks that are being able to divide tasks by their importance and urgency, and making sure you are spending the right time on the right sections. Being able to set a priority level on the app would be a great help.
Yes, this is good to have. I know we can sort by due date. Indirectly, it means the priority of tasks. Sometimes we have no idea when is the due date but it is important task todo

This is an absolute must-have! Just give me a way to categorize things by color please!
Without over complicating task prioritization, I’d suggest seamless outlook integration by using and syncing with the outlook categories field.
So it’s user’s delight.. Be it a four-tier “priority matrix” style or anything such as “Big Rocks” and “Sand”, to use the bucket-filling principle.
It's a very important feature
this function is highly desirable and would make To-Do useful as a project planning tool as well. allowing users who have multiple project plan levels of importance as well.

Or just color labels, so you can customise how you want.
Just the option to add one star would be great
I would suggest using flags/stars as a way to prioritize importance and urgency.
No stars = just get it done when you have the time
* = When you have free time, this gets done first.
** = Make plans to get this done ASAP.
*** = Set everything else aside and get this done NOW.
Float the tasks to the top of their prospective lists based on the star rating, with three stars automatically placing the task in ‘My Day’ as well.
My bad. After three days using TODO, I just realized you CAN edit at the top of the expanded notes window. So you could place 1-3 priorities (or whatever your preference) by heading your entries with a number and space. Sort A-Z and change priority levels by editing number. Order can be changed on any list by drag and drop.
I just start each task with a number and sort A-Z. The bigger issue is that you cannot edit a task after entering it, so you can't change as the task changes, nor even edit typos. (Great free item, don't mean to sound unappreciative!)
Yes please to this one!

Please, It's a must for me.
Priorities would be great. I used to find the star handy so that I can scan the lists and quickly see more important tasks when I’m bringing them into my day. I also use it under ‘today’ – if I have say 10 items I like to star the top three so I work on those first, and they can also be brought automatically to the top of the list. I like being able to choose if an item goes to the top of the list or not when I star it. Priority would be even better – e.g. star if you tap it or hold down the star and it would give you an option from 1 to 5 or 1 to 3. Then you can have a sort by priority option.

Set priority for the task and give priority for the task
