  1. Swipe Left / right or Disable

    Allow the user to select what action is carried out when swiping left / right of a to-do: add/delete/complete/undo/navigate/move. Currently this is not available. It could be sync'd with Outlook Mail actions or just free standing

  2. Push notifications when shared list is changed by someone else

    I see the "Share lists" idea to be supported by many and also STARTED already, which is great. However, what I am missing a lot in all apps like Wunderlist, Onenote, Keep and others is the option that the app will notify me when someone else updates shared list.

    It was great how this worked in the past in "Family room" feature that was discontinued on Windows phone. We were sharing Onenote lists in family room and every family member was notified when someone else changed something. Since that times none of to-do apps with sharing is capable to do…

  4. 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!

  7. Project-based To-Do lists

    It would be amazing to have to-do lists per project, where in one single view a user can see it's own tasks disregarding the project (overview on top of projects). This would also benefit the follow-up of assigned tasks within a project by for example a project manager.

  9. Android Widget customization, font, size, transparency and color options

    The current color theme of the widget doesn't fit to my home screen style. It would be nice to have more possibilities for customization

  11. Improve the tag feature

    Improve the tag feature so they can be used as contexts:

    Now whwn you filter by tag tasks appear random and you can not teorder them manually.. This makes the feature useless. A serious Todo app should give the possibility to sort taks by folder, but also by context or tag.

  13. KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS

    It's really astonishing that there are no keyboard shortcuts for To-do (unless I'm really missing something). This is particularly essential for to-do lists - you want to be able to mark things as done or important, put them on My Day and so on without breaking up flow.

  15. Disable "my day" feature

    Would be nice if you could completely disable the "my day" feature. I don´t need it. Just like a button in the options.

  16. Add the option to always open during Windows start, and to always minimize to the tray.

    It's kind of ridiculous how little features there are in settings for this application.

    At the minimum, it should contain the option to auto-start with Windows, although, manually adding it to the startup folder or the proper registry key wouldn't be that hard I guess, but also, I was shocked to discover there is no always minimize to the system tray.

    What's a To-Do list that can remind you of up coming tasks that need to be completed if it cannot remind you because it's always closed?

    Every other Microsoft app we run from 365 Enterprise allows us to hit…
