Weekly view for To-Do
"My day" panel is really useful, but we also need look and have present always our week goals. The possibility bump all our to-dos help to declutter our mind, but this doesn't have sense if we can't organize or order them. So by this reason think is necesary a week view or a monthly view, even a more especific dayly view (maybe by hour or by morning/afternoon/night) could be really productive.

With the latest update of To-Do, the Planned Smart List is now available on Windows, Web, iOS, and Android. This list allows you to see all your tasks with due dates or reminders in separate sections for Overdue Tasks, Tasks for Today, Tomorrow, the next 5 days, or later.
It should be useful, differents kinds of views for this. For me I would like to have a view like a kanban board, in each column is the day of the week. I will cross todos done, and the ones I cant finish I defer them to other days (just by dragging them to some other column referent to the day witch I have delayed the task).

the smart list you talk about has nothing to do with weekly planning. Due dates and “when you plan to do some work on a task” are completely different things.

A weekly/monthly and a hourly view in My Day is the feature I most need in To-Do.
Important to have predefined view to be usefull day by day

The minimum standard should be feature parity with Wunderlist which was/is an awesome tool. This includes replicating the "Week" auto-list and separating the week into days.
Personally I use the number of items listed next to the "Week" list to get a gauge of how busy I am over the coming week. The breakdown by day is important as the easily viewable length of the list for coming days gives me an indication of how busy I am on those days and then I can easily drag and drop tasks into different days to reprioritise.
Really disappointing that feature parity with Wunderlist isn't absolutely top of the list.

I agree. It would be nice to have another panel like "my day" but was instead called "my week" that you could plan weekly goals and each day you can further distribute tasks across the days.
I think this might clutter the interface for people who don't want it, so maybe make it optional. If you do that, you can have my month and my year as well. That way the app could get as granular or as big-picture as you want.

Again, having lists for "today", week, etc. are helpful. But for me what is essential is to line out my tasks by Reminder Time in chronological order for each day. That's how I arrange my day in Outlook tasks; that's the functionality I have to have with To-Do on my phone. Can this sort feature be added rather painlessly? Thanks!.

I think that it's mandatory to have an option to visualize the sections available on the "planned" smart list, on any list.
I dont want to mix multiple lists in my "planning" week
I use Planned list, but this list is large and includes all the tasks wuith due date. It will be good, if there were lists with number of tasks limited to some condition: only for the next 7 days, today and etc.

I support a 'My week' list I can build alongside 'My day' for @MicrosoftToDo - let us plan the full week, not just every day.
Will there be any more detail? Currently it just shows today, tomorrow, then everything past that rolled into one section, which isn't very intuitive and prevents me from using To Do over Wunderlist (Wunderlist separates the week ahead into clear Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday etc. sections).
Also - drag and drop to different days would be good. And a CALENDAR.
Ability for multiple views:
Daily, This week, Next 2 weeks and selectable beyond.
I like the Planned list but once a task has been given a due date or has been assigned to the My Day list, I'd like to be able to hide those tasks in theTask list. This could be achieved in the same way that you implemented the Show (or Hide) completed tasks in the Task list.
Oh my god.. So many people have the same need..
I am an avid user of Wunderlist for many years and i am happy to see that To Do is keeping most of the functionalities.
But since i have started a new business i am finding myself in the need to manage my and my teams task list in a weekly format..
Here are some suggestion that would make To Do the most functional productivity App at least in my perspective.
1. Week View - 7 Panels side by side like in a calander
2. Drag and Drop to change assigned date
2. Drag to extend timeline
3. Team view - Scroll down to see the tasks assigned to the team in the weekly view
4. Mac app
You can look at TeamWeek.com for the inspiration. They have been able to nail the week view by lack the UX and also the amazing functionalities that To Do has.
This would really solve all my life's problems!!

What I really need to make To Do (mobile for Android) totally functional for me is to be able to arrange my daily tasks by Reminder Time. That's the way I view my Tasks in Outlook. Can this "sort" feature be added?
The planned view is already nice but it would be perfect if we could plan our week without setting due date and just move the task by drag and drop from one day to the other day of the week :)

Weekly view without having to set due dates would be great for someone who just needs to organize the tasks and layout a tentative plan for the week.
