How can we improve Microsoft To-Do?

Integrate with All Microsoft Products

If Microsoft is going to give us a new to-do product, it needs to integrate with all the other existing Microsoft products: Cortana Reminders, Planner, TFS, Outlook Tasks, MS Project.

    I don't see why this topic is still open. It doesn't mean anything.
    Should be closed and open instead specific requests for integrations. Currently it's jammed here in the main asks page for no reason.

    Integrations are becoming visible (Planner, Outlook etc.). Well done!
    However, we need the desktop (Windows 10) Todo app to provide the option of opening the corresponding desktop app when clicking on integrated features (such as 'open in outlook' to be opened in Outlook on the desktop, rather than going online when you might be logged into a different account and then not finding the item)

    I happen to use One Note and Outlook, and others use SharePoint.

    It helps your customers if the many Microsoft programs are as tightly integrated as possible.

    Especially Cortana. It would be really nice to be able to say hey Cortana, and add tasks to do directly.

    Outlook fat client would be a great top priority. Thanks

    Import from older Microsoft desktop apps. Office 2007 and up are still widely used and migration to online would be an option if tasks could be imported from these programs.

    The top of my list; integration with Outlook tasks; dates, due dates, bullets, numbers, priority, subtasks in To-Do to notes in Outlook. Please!

    specifically OneNote, since many more of us at my organization use OneNote for ToDos and other lists than Outlook.
    does anyone use the tasks features of outlook?

    1) Import from other top task asps like todoist, ticktick (how do u expect new users to migrate!)
    2) Integrate with ical
    3) VS.Net Integration
    4) SharePoint List integration

    On calendar integration, To-do must go beyond iCal feeds and must integrate reminders+calendar better than Google's combo of GCal plus Keep/Inbox. In the latter, once the reminder date has passed, the reminder is marked the same way a completed task is marked and it loses the "reminder" tag. Microsoft already has the better solution: adding Wunderlist as a calendar app on Outlook for Android and iOS. Completed items get a check mark, so you can differentiate them from pending ones while remaining on your calendar. However, calendar integration must not be limited to mobile apps of Outlook.
    Please make calendar integration happen soon.
