How can we improve Microsoft To-Do?

Assign tasks to someone

In the way it was possible in Wunderlist. Or the way one can invite someone on Outlook.

        Def on the most important feature for collaboration. I' am using to-do at work and I want to be able to assign specific tasks to team members. hopefully, this will be prioritized soon.

        How can this not be planned? Is this a joke? This is sipposed to be a todo list with enabled collaboration, shared lists,... but you can´t asign tasks to your coworkers?
        Office 365 is great but if you want to compete on this type of apps look at competitors... Asana, Trello...miles away

        The most ridiculous thing about todo is the lack of this feature which is so essential. Without this moving over from Wunderlist makes no sense. In fact this feature should have been there in the first place after acquiring Wunderlist.

        Please do not let the owner loose the control over the task if he assigns it to some one else... this unfortunately happens in Outlook task... :-(

        2 years since the acquisition of Wunderlist and yet not all the features are mapped. This app makes you feel we are still living in the 90s

        The lack of this feature is the only thing keeping me from using To-Do over Wunderlist.

        How is this not already an option? Ridiculous. Want to move over from Wunderlist, but we can't do that without being able to sign tasks to individuals.

        It would be great to have an integration with Hub. So that I could take a task from Hub that has been assigned to me, and add it to my daily to-do.

        Mirroring the comments of others. Please make it possible to assign tasks to others - otherwise, the shared to-do lists are almost irrelevant.
        This is a massive pain point.

        The ability to assign tasks greatly enhances the value of list sharing. Please take that next step and enable task assignments, with emails generated to those tasked, and confirmation email back to the task assigner once the task is complete. Thank you!

        It's hard to be excited for shared lists when task ownership isn't possible. I had thought shared lists would be rolled out not only with this feature but also comments and auditing to allow for collaboration. Please prioritize this.

        When implementing this feature please trigger an email be sent to the task owner when assigned a task so they are aware and to the person who assigned the task once completed.
        Thank you!

        Assign tasks to someone is a fundamental feature. Please, this need to be priority.

        I cannot use To-do without this feature as shared lists need items assigned. Will keep using Wunderlist until this feature is available.
