Add Outlook Categories to Tasks
Ability to sync with Outlook categories and sort by categories within the app.
Available on the web app of To Do.
1. when writing a task on To-Do with a tag "#Name", it would be linked in outlook to category "#Name"
2. when writing a task in outlook assigned to category "#Name", it would be linked to tag "#Name" on To-Do
A better work-around for this is to use the already implemented #hashtag functionality. You can use it to add categories. You can also search for the hashtag and aggregate items from across lists to create a sort of smart list.

Sort to-do lists by Categories and add Markers to facilitate users with many to-dos, and include both individual "My day" for each category and marker and a General "My day" with all day tasks
Currently tasks can be viewed in the calendar, but categories are not shown and it's hard to see which tasks are grouped. A dedicated app would be nice. (Or make the tasks backwards-compatible with the Wunderlist app...)
Work around: Preface your tasks with outline and sub-outline numbers and letters to prioritize, categorize and systematize your lists, e.g.,
C1=calls, priority 1, P1a,b,c=Project 1, part a,part b,part c.

You can Categorize your own lists if that is what you mean
Can't believe categories are not a feature. Cmon vote this up
For an O365 business account, the task database comes from Exchange so it is essential that the todo app allows Outlook desktop like capabilities. A key one is the use of presenting lists by category. The king of ToDo's (David Allen; Getting Things Done) has for years recommended using categories to manage tasks in Outlook desktop, so you can categorise a task @Home and @Computer (say) and then sort your tasks by category. That way, if you want to see what you can tick off at your computer, you look at that list, and similarly if you are at home. If the task can be done at either location and carries both categories, it comes up on both lists. At the moment Todo is more mobile than outlook desktop, but its limits on presenting tasks make it almost useless when applied to a set of tasks set up to be managed via Outlook desktop.
