Create a To Do List for Tomorrow/Plan My Day the day before
You plan your next day of to dos and it would be helpful to create the to do list for tomorrow at the end of the business day
While we aren’t creating a My Day version that you can plan the night before at the moment, we have made significant updates to our Planned list.
Rolling out now on Android (version 2.17), and coming soon to other platforms, you can now view a distinct tomorrow view in the Planned list. You can also group the view by lists so that you have a view of all the different projects the tasks from. You can choose to close list sections so that you only concentrate on one list section at a time.

bring it in! not tomorrow . now!!!
Start making a "my tomorrow". I can only set my alert for a minute after midnight and I want to be able to plan earlier than this.
Such a simple concept; why does Microsoft continually fall short on such basic aspects? Hire a computer science summer student and get the job done already!
I think I'll be discontinuing my MS365 subscription. I'll buy office once every 5 or 6 years like before which will leave me plenty of time to find and learn an alternate suite before you shut the door on non-subscription customers.
Yet another epic fail from Microsoft.
Echoing everyone ‘s comments. Annoying not to have this ...and the work arounds are tedious . Please fix this

This feature should been already there in the first place. Who actually add items to the current day? Every book in good management tells us to prepare ahead and save 15 minutes to schedule your next day.
So Microsoft To Do must be able to allow users to add items to My Day for any day, not just today or tomorrow..

I don’t think your WORKING ON IT statement really meets the Use Case. It is important to be able to plan your My Day the night before rather than have everything removed.
Work around for planning tomorrow’s work today and getting it into tomorrow’s My Day.
(1) With “+ New List” create another list called TOMORROW.
(2) At close of today, right click tasks in My Day, use “Move task to…” where TOMORROW is listed and move required My Day tasks to TOMORROW. (Existing tasks can be added list TOMORROW, new tasks can also be created in list TOMORROW, as an aid to doing tomorrow’s planning).
(3) Early tomorrow morning, by right clicking each task in list TOMORROW, move them to My Day or back to Tasks.

Found this feature has been request for two years, on my god! please give more attention on it!
The lack of a My Tomorrow list makes the app pretty close to useless. I'm not saying this as an insult, but as a practical fact. I find myself using To Do less and less—and this is the only reason why.
I don't know what to wear the next day
Totally agree! I need to PLAN AHEAD one day strategically and mentally. There's often no time the same day when the pressure is on. This shortcoming is a major weakness of an otherwise powerful, & potentially excellent, planning tool.
Totally agree with Tom. This is how most of people (that plan anything) plan their next day. You sit in the evening and think of tomorrow.
Absolutely must have feature.
This is probably Microsoft To Do's biggest weakness. The app is designed by a software engineer and not somebody who uses it. Most people plan a great deal of their day the evening before, because it reduces stress to know what you'll be doing in the morning. Microsoft really needs to add this in as it is I think a show stopper that this is not present and prompting me to look elsewhere for todo list solution
Ok, so I figured out a way to almost have a 'tomorrow' feature. This only works well if you do not frequently mark tasks as important, as I use 'my day' feature for my important daily items. So if your 'important' list is empty, do the following:
1) I put all my tasks for tomorrow into 'My Day'.
2) I go into 'My Day", select all tasks, right mouse click and 'mark them all as important'.
3)When you wake up tomorrow, "my day' is empty". Go into "Important" list, select all tasks, right mouse click and "Add to my day".
4)Then select all tasks again, right click and 'remove importance'.
5) So now important list is empty again, and My Day has the list, and it only takes a few secs in the morning to move them.
The "add to my day" feature is what I love about this app more than anything. BUT there needs be a way to have an second option to "Add to tomorrow", so you can plan the night before. Then, for example, at midnight (right after 'my day' is cleared out), the items in "tomorrow" move into "my day" and "tomorrow" is cleared. That to me is essential for this to be useful app, as right now, I am ordering my tasks in my other lists every single night, so I can move them over into 'my day' first thing in the morning. And I have to do this every night, as there are many items in my lists are recurring tasks, happening at different times each week, or month etc. so the priority changes daily. PLEASE PLEASE add this feature.
yep, i need this terribly! sometimes i can get around it by planning my next day at like, 1am, but that isnt practical lol.
This simply is essential to planning. Your Planned view requires me to set due dates to every little task I am planning, and that is just too tedious to make it an efficient way of planning...!!!
Need to be able to plan for the next day the night before
"My Tomorrow" which automatically becomes "My Day", tomorrow (at midnight), or by being able to set a point at which my day becomes an active list for tomorrow
option to set the "End of Day" reset time for the My Day view to whatever time we want.
couldn't agree more. this feature is like a car on blocks. At least carry-over uncompleted tasks from today to tomorrow. It's logical that if it was essential today and I didn't get to it, it would essential tomorrow. How hard can it be to make that update? Please!
Tomorrow I'm going to go to a sex store and get some sex toys I'm going to try to buy new car and I'm going to make a lot of money and no one is going to stop me thank you have a nice day except for God if you wanted to he's the only one that has control God bless you
I have recommended this so many times (even if I still refer to it as wunderlist - it is amazing how microsofting it has taken away a little bit of the awesomeness) but like everyone else here, think its most obvious lack is an ability to go to bed organised, with my day populated for tomorrow either as "My Tomorrow" which automatically becomes "My Day", tomorrow (at midnight), or by being able to set a point at which my day becomes an active list for tomorrow. I don't have the time to go and look at how many of the comments here are made at the end of the day or first thing in the morning... but there'll be a few. It is such a nice feeling going to bed/switching off metaphorically and figuratively knowing that tomorrow is organised, rather than knowing that the first task of the day is to re-address and re-filter the enormity of the to-do list, urgh, even if there's a load of things that were calendared for tomorrow in the planned items/suggested list. Not everything has a due date and sometimes even we list lovers get a little bit of joy out of doing the little things that we swiped right for because they'd be nice to get done.
