Automatic populating of My Day
I have several Lists each with numerous actions. I assign Due Dates to each action. Every day I have to troll through all my actions and Add to My Day on all those actions which are due today. It would save an awful lot of time if an algorithm could be devised by Microsoft which automatically registers those actions due today in My Day
For now, you should be able to see the tasks that are due today in your “Planned” smartlist under the “Today” bucket.

I'd love a "My Week" that could be put together over the weekend when there is more time to think and plan. And allow tasks unfinished on a given day to just automatically roll over to the next day. The most maddening feature of ToDo is the requirement that My Day be populated in the morning. Who has time to think at that time (let alone strategically categorize tasks??)!
Incomplete jobs in My Day to be transferred to the next day automatically until they are assigned a new date or marked complete.
These tasks can also be displayed separately under heading Pending Task or something like that

Um recurso atrelado ao Lembrar-me e Diariamente que marcasse se aquela tarefa é para aparecer no "Meu Dia" - este recurso seria mais fácil de implementar e capaz de popular "Meu dia" automaticamente.
Using a due date as a planned date is a poor work around. Also make it easier to plan at least a day ahead.
It would make sense to display not only tasks with due date for today or in the past, but also tasks with a reminder for today or in the past.
SAME - anything "due today" should auto populate in "My Day"
Add me to list. Having to re-propagate the list every morning seems like a waste of time. Would like to have the list left in My Day, just as it was left at the end of the previous day.

To utilize this function,the team just require an internship member who has primary basic coding skills in MS. But you, the admin, spent a bunch of valuable time to resist and deny the EIGHT THOUSAND ADVOCATORS rather than just send a mail to the team. Overly foolish I believed. (as I m a coder)
It would also be good to sort my day by the list because I have multiple to-do lists and when they are on "My Day" it gets mixed up with other things and I end up not being able to find it.
Yes please! Feels like an obvious update to implement - happy to see it's being worked on!

Could you please add a flag for if I want a certain recurring task added to "My Day"? I need this for my daily/weekly routines.
THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS, PLEASE!!
I love the MY DAY portion of this app, but I have Same problem. Putting in a due date for TODAY does not automatically move that task to MY DAY on the due date. I have developed a way to make it work for me, but it's still a pain in the butt. Have to make ADDING TO "MY DAY" as it's own TASK.
Having to remember to move tasks from Scheduled to My Day every day is time-consuming and annoying, and having an automated way to do this would improve the app a lot. What's the point of setting dates for tasks if I still have to remember to move them between lists on the day? Or I can just see the scheduled tasks list, which stresses me out as I see all the future tasks that can't be completed yet.
Thank you Microsoft for leaving my poor wee granny at the bus stop for 3 hours! If you had listened to everyone shouting on here about the automatic update of planned tasks into My Day then I would’ve been reminded to pick up Granny Jean instead of getting shouted at and refused any Wethers Originals!
So can we have a positive update on when you are offering this option in settings to update our My Day feature?!
P.S. My granny will be happy for her next bus trip also if you do this
Why don't you just send an email to all Microsoft 365 To Do Users and ask them what they think about what you think is right for us instead of unilaterally deciding what you think is good for us ?
8335 people took the time to tell that's what we need and you still deny what we want.
Those are a handful of all the people that really want what we asked.
Where did you gather the data about the "people" who don't want the be "overwhelmed" on their My Day ?
All other ToDo Apps send their Today tasks to the My Day.
How can we not think about how bad of a monopoly Microsoft is ?
Do you really think that you know what is best for us ?
Ask what users think of you deciding to send what we schedule as Today to a planned folder instead of Today and you'll see.
But ask the question the right way, not a way that the answer will turn at your advantage.
Objectivity is the key.
If I'm wrong, just publish the result of the answers and we will stop argue about it.
@Polly: I super agree with you, but in Outlook (web-version only?) I can only access "Tasks", "MyDay" and all lists I create, but not the "Planned" category.
Thanks for taking care of this!
One method we use is the creation of our tick sheet for the next day. This To Do does not offer this preloading my list for the morning.
I realize we all have different tweaks we use for our daily tasking, but having more opportunity to use the MS Flow to do the auto My Day population based upon due dates seems to be the simplest fix here.
This also applies to the iOS widget, where you can’t see what’s only Due Today without adding everything to My Day manually. Yes, you can change the widget to show Planned, but that will also show future planned tasks which can be misleading/distracting.
To Do should be designed flexibly without forcing users to use it one way.
