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 use the Today list extensively in Wunderlist. I like it because it automatically populates itself with a to-do from any of my lists if it is due "today". To-do does not seem to do this. I have to hunt for what is due today and then manually add it to My Day. Manually sending them all certainly doesn't work, it's just chaos then. Deal breaker, have to go back to Wunderlist. Hopefully for now

I have to disagree. I love the idea of starting a new day with a clean slate. Please, make this optional.
It make sense My Day gets auto populated with items from To do list based on due dates. It does not make sense me individually going to each category or To do list and then move them to My Day
I loved this feature of Wunderlist. Today showed my over due items and anything due that day. If I then needed to changed a date of something I could easily. Having to choose navigate through the upcoming, overdue and suggested to add things to my day really increases the amount of time I have to spend managing the app. I want it to tell me what I need to do

This is important for overdue tasks.
If a task is due today and I haven't completed it yet, I need to complete it today. Makes sense, right?
So it would be logical, that it automatically shows up on "My Day" instead of me traversing through all my tasks every morning and trying to figure out, which ones are due today.
This should be a standard feature! When I put in a due date, I expect the task to show up on "My Day" when the date has arrived.
This would almost entirely eliminate the need to fill in My Day manually every morning.
Have a look at how Any.do is doing it: depending if you have set a date for task or not, it is dragged along from Next week to tomorrow to today.
I remove a due date (today) in one of my tasks but it won't disappear from My Day list. It's kind of confusing for me that I have to manually remove that task from My Day.

If I create a task with date in futur e.g. into folder to-do, I would expect the automatic transfer of the task into folder "My day" on the specified day.
The moment, a task is linked to a date, and that day is or becomes "today" then it should appear automatically in the "My Day" section - just as it was in Wunderlist with the "Today" list which was also connected to the dates.
Yes this is what I want. Now I have to wait till midnight to plan my day for tomorrow.

I feel I should have more control over this - maybe implement as a feature that you can turn on/off?
Automatically add unfinished to dos with today's due date to My Day.
Now you have to manually add through the lightbulb.
It seems fairly logical that things that are due today and are unfinished need to be done tjat specific day.
The having to tap the lightbulb and adding tasks to your day seems like an unnecessary extra step. If they are automatically added, I can see ehat I need to do in the widget as soon as I look at my phone instead of maybe 3 days later when I recall that I haven't used the lightbulb the last few days.
Give the option to turn "My Day" into smart list of due and overdue items.
I would prefer to set tasks for a given day before that day begins. So having a "Tomorrow" tab that becomes "My Day", or just a date picker to assign tasks to would be great.
