  1. Sync Unreliable

    Sync between iOS and Windows 10 app is very unreliable. Both apps claim to be in sync, yet the lists are not the same and the items are in a different order

  3. High disk usage

    Hello there,

    When I run the ToDo app, it constantly writes at a speed of 2-5MB per second to the hard drive.

    Process Monitor reveals constant writes in the app's .storage and .storage-journal

    I'm going to stop using the ToDo app until this is fixed. This is extremely high hard drive wear for an app that should just read or write occasionally.

    Version: 1.53.1904.1002
    OS: Windows 10 10809

  4. Synchronistation between apps/platforms still not reliable

    Synchronisation between app on iPhone and app on Windows or Outlook is not reliable - I had to close the app on iPhone and re-open it before it would synchronise changes

  5. Tasks are accidently checked off

    It’s too easy to mark a task as complete when scrolling in a list, and there is no undo option if that occurs.

  7. Automatically add yesterday's unticked items from My Day to the Suggested items for today

    Automatically add yesterday's unticked items from My Day to the Suggested items for today.

    The system used to do this but it doesn't do this anymore.

  8. Reorder / Sort Drag & Drop

    Reordering list items is very buggy in the web app.

    Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not recognise the click & drag, sometimes it assumes editing the task.

    It would be better to add a handle to the left of each task item specifically for clicking/dragging the item for ordering/sorting.

    Also, it appears that sub-tasks cannot be ordered, I find myself deleting and re-entering sub tasks to get them ordered correctly, which is rather pointless.

  10. Sharing Lists

    Sharing via a link in email is AWFUL. Please replicate what WunderList did. It allows for easy sharing between people you've shared lists with before. You simply search their name or email and it appears. PLEASE fix this or kill Microsoft To Do and keep Wunderlist.

  11. Sort completed tasks as well

    In the new update where you group Completed tasks on their own, those tasks aren't sorted according to my requested sort order.

    The reason this is useful is because I use To Do as a shopping list (besides an actual to-do) which means it's super annoying having to scan through the list of "completed" items to add what I need to buy.

  12. Do not remove task from notification bar on Android until it is removed manually

    Issue is related to reminders. In 99% cases reminders are set to notify about need to complete some task on that date.

    I have a task with a specified reminder set on some day.
    On that date a task notification appears in my notification bar (Android 9), as expected.
    However, if I do nothing with task, for example, I don't have time to complete it on that date, the notification will disappear on the next day from the notification bar which is absolutely incorrect as task notification should persist until manual action performed - task is completed or removed or…

  13. Slow

    Currently the app is running very slow and seems to be getting slower. For example, creating a new task it takes a couple of seconds to appear in the list, or changing the date, I have to wait 4 seconds in each month before being able to scroll to the next month - really time consuming if you’re scheduling something for 1 year away! I wonder if it’s because there are lots of completed tasks? Perhaps an option to archive completed tasks would improve speed?

  15. Review Yesterday's Completed Tasks No Longer Available

    The new "For Today" feature (which replaced "Review" on PC) no longer shows the items completed yesterday. It only shows uncompleted tasks from the day before. Thankfully my phone still operates with showing yesterday's completed tasks, but this is not there on my phone. I'm fairly certain that was unintentional behavior. If there's a reason for that, I'd like to know why. A core component of standup meetings is stating what you did yesterday and the review feature was very adequate in accommodating that.

  16. In Northern Europe week starts from Monday

    Currently setting reminder for a task gives possibility to set reminder to next week. For this Sunday morning is automatically proposed. However in where I live next week starts from Monday, thus rendering the proposal unusable.

    I therefore propose following the underlying location to match when a week should start or enable users to select the starting date of week manually

  17. Sort "assigned to me" by Due-Date .

    When sorting various lists by Due-Date, it does not apply to "assigned to me".

    This has a negative impact on me team, as we have many assigned tasks each week, which need to be completed in the order of their due dates. Wunderlist did this perfectly, and it's now a missing feature that we used by the hour.

  19. hide the 'My day' section

    You can already hide the smart lists 'Important', 'Planned' and 'Assigned to you'. Please don't leave this feature unfinished. Allow users to hide 'My Day' and 'Tasks' so that they can use uses the app without distraction.

  20. MAC Desktop Window resizes on its own

    The desktop application on MAC 10.13.6 keeps resizing its self while it is minimized in the dock. The window grows in width to be wider than the monitor and causes an issue being displayed with multiple monitor setup.
