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
While we aren’t adding automatic population of due dates to My Day at the moment, we have made some significant changes to the Planned list.
Rolling out on Android now (version 2.17), and coming soon to other platforms, you can now see a distinct Today view in the Planned list. You can also choose to group this view by list so that you get a view of what you have to do today across all your lists. You can choose to close particular lists e.g. Home if you don’t want to see it while at work.

When scheduling tasks, have them automatically populate the MyDay tab, so I dont have to go hunting for items. If I schedule something weeks ago, it would be a big help if the reminder OR the actual due date was automatically there as a further reminder.
This is the number one reason I haven't switched to To-Do from Wunderlist; the additional effort just to see what I need to do today or this week. My work day has enough ad hoc interruptions and changes in it that having to plan each day up front and/or be constantly moving items in is just extra busywork that gets in the way of using the application.
It would be nice if we could have some Tasks, that the user chooses, that would be automatically EVERY day in the My Day list. Even if we mark the task as done, the next day this task should appear automatically.
There should be an option in settings to enable tasks due today to automatically appear on "my day" page
My Day should not remove tasks each day, but allow the user to update manually.

I agree. Alternatively, or additionally, an option to automatically add certain tasks (e.g., daily/recurring ones) to "My Day" would help eliminate unnecessary redundancy and extra steps. I see that some To-Do users have already mentioned this. Here's some feedback on "My Day" for the Microsoft To-Do (Wunderlist) team, which I was writing up to post elsewhere (with a similar suggestion in the second paragraph):
So far, I really like how "My Day" frees up due dates to function more flexibly and independently when needed. More particularly, it allows due dates to function more like deadlines, allowing users to set limits/goals for when individual tasks and larger projects are to be completed (whether they are more-or-less fixed or tentative, voluntary or involuntary, etc.). Of course, just because I assign a due date (or deadline) to a task doesn't mean that I could not complete it before its assigned date. Friday may be the deadline for turning in my taxes, but why not add it to my tasklist/agenda for Wednesday when I've decided that I can fit it into "My Day" (without having to change the "due date" or deadline for that task).
One weakness of "My Day" is that, in some circumstances, it could become redundant and requires an extra step (and lots of extra clicks). Why do I have to always add highly repetitive, daily (or even weekly) tasks to "My Day"? (Click, click, click, ...) Maybe an option to automatically add certain tasks to "My Day" would address cases like these.

Add task automatically if it in my day not need to go to suggestions and remove mark to add it thx

Any tasks included in "My Day" that weren't completed yesterday should be transferred to today's "My Day" tasks.
My day is potentially really useful but current implementation is kind of random. Fine tuning options would help to make this an indespensible feature. The following settings would meet most needs:
Auto-populate tasks [slider]:
- None > Overdue tasks > Due today > Due tomorrow > This week
Exclude tasks & lists:
- Add 'My day' toggle to list options
- In-task option to exclude individual tasks
- Due date
- Urgent / important / star / flag (priority)
All the todo list will in wish-list folder but when reminder time comes it should notified and automatically should come to My- Day screen and it should there till that we finished the work or reschedule for future date and time
My Day should auto populate with tasks that are due today.

If I mark an item's due date for February 5th, it should automatically show up in My Day when it becomes February 5th.
Set a date & time (like a reminder) for a certain to-do to automatically be added to My Day
When reminder date comes then it should give notification and automatically should appear in My Day. Here we should be able to reschedule it. My Day should be default screen.
suppose i have a to do schedule for 30 Apr.
on 30 Apr it should figure in MY DAY automatically.
one need not go to suggestions and add them manually.
When setting reminders for todo tasks, you should be able to see the tasks that will be reminded today as a intelligent suggestion (e.g. In Planned) in My Day list.
So that you can Quickly add them to the My Day list.
I use the iOS app in iPhone.
As we can see here, workflows are different. I think the suggestion feature is nice, however, it needs some options to adapt to these. I would suggest either to place the suggestion list in the list on the left as a smart list (aka today 2.0) and keep "My Day" as an option (similar to starred tasks). An alternative would be the said optional option to automatically populate the My Day with due and maybe overdue tasks. I don't see myself clicking every todo planned for a day a second time if they were alteady scheduled for today.
It should have option to add item automatically to my day based on due date from the other lists like home, office etc.
Same here. I wish to plan my next day before I sleep
If you add a task while on the my day list. It should get marked due today automatically.
