  3. Due Again/Repeat After Completion

    Add ability to make new "Due Again" x number of days (weeks) after current To-Do is completed.

    For example, you make a reminder to trim your dogs nails every two weeks. When due, you're out of town and don't complete the to-do till the following weekend.

    When the current late to-do is marked complete, it would be nice to have a new to-do scheduled for the same interval.

  4. Browser Extension (Firefox, Chrome, Edge, Opera, Safari, xxx)

    Add task from browser with support for both choosing list on each adding or/and set a standard list where entry is added by default. It would be a nice feature to show standard adding-list, and last “used” list in top position and then all lists available beneath.

  5. Start Dates and Due Dates

    In Omnifocus, I can set a "start date", which is the date that the task is available to be worked on. We can choose the view (for example "all future tasks", "all visible or available tasks"). With this feature it is possible to better organize the future due dates and tasks, hiding the tasks of a far future. It would be welcome in MS ToDo.

  13. Ability to backup/export all lists

    Ability to backup/export all lists. Either to CSV/PDF/Excel and/or a backup file so that we can restore in the event of something going wrong with my lists or the Exchange server that hosts the lists. We need some level of assurance that our precious lists are safe!

  17. # Tag search

    The input tag list is displayed and I need to select the existing tag and input it when I enter a todo.
    Also, when searching, it would be nice to have a function to search by various combinations of tags and text.
