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.

    Also notifications when a task in a shared list is assigned, added and completed.

  • Riley commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes, totally agree. And, just as important, an option to notify all people on the list when a task is added to the list, and/or just notify a person to whom the task is assigned.

    Well the beta version on android now allows you to assign a task. The user who the task is assigned to does not get a notification that they were assign a task making the feature pointless in its current form. Please fix!

    If using shared lists, it is impossible to identify a task if it isn't assigned to a given user. Awesome feature Microsoft To.Do has to support.

    Be still my heart.. I see a "Assign to someone" on list items in the Android beta version. THANK YOU!!!

    This is actually a very useful feature that is missing in a seemingly flagship application. Please update!

    Hello Microsoft, why does it take to implement something soo important soo long? The Wunderlist Team was hundred times faster before joining Microsoft. Please bring update soon

    We should be able to see the tasks we assigned to other people (from planner/task planner/outlook etc) and we should be able to assign task to others also

    How is this system meant to work if there is no accountability for each task!? This product is a deliberate shadow of what it replaced. All MS wanted to do is kill off the competition. Old acquire, run down and close trick.

    I must have this feature to be able to use to-do. This and being able to create folders

    This is definitely an important feature to have, especially on shared lists. Not everyone has access to Planner, so it would be great to have the ability to assign tasks to people (and if they don't have To-Do, they could get an email notification to download it).

    Can this feature be more detailed please?
    Are you working only on assigning tasks? Or also sub-tasks?
