  1. Copy and Paste Lists and Tasks

    This was a really handy feature in Wunderlist - the ability to copy/paste both lists and tasks...

    I had a number of template lists which I could copy if I needed. For instance, a generic list of holiday items to pack which would be copied/pasted each time I went on a new trip.

    Thankfully - the excellent integration with Outlook means I can do this at the Outlook end, and it'll be replicated in To-Do! :)

  2. View all tasks from multiple accounts

    I find it a little annoying I can't see all my tasks from multiple accounts. It would be good to see all tasks with a tag to say which account that task is linked to. I sometimes add tasks to my personal account when I meant to add it to my work account because I have forgotten which account I'm looking at.

  3. 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

  4. Give timer option for each task

  5. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. Widget Customization

    Please make Android widget customizable.
    Add options like, to :-

    1 Adjust transparency
    2 Add rounded corners
    3 Resize font

    So that it can be matched with wallpaper, theme or taste of the user.

    Because Widget is the thing that everybody see all day to remember without open the app so it becomes Important.

  11. 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.

  13. Share list with people in other organisations

    We are project managers and consultants. We often require to share lists with our clients, outside our organisation. The current sharing is limited to users in your own organisation. Wunderlist were great at sharing lists.

  15. For tasks in My Day that are not completed by the end of the day, the undone tasks should automatically be in My Day the next day.

    If a task is in My Day and is not finished, it is currently not rolling over to the next day--it is remove from My Day. The default should be that unfinished tasks in My Day stay in My Day for the following days until the task is done.

  17. Tag Management

    Tags are required of even the simplest task list management app. The primary factor is that the system cannot answer the simplest of queries or set up dynamic ‘smart’ lists that evaluate tags as well as system variables such as @now, @tomorrow, before 3pm tomorrow, @here, @arriving, @leaving, @main-residence, @home-office, not assigned to @accounting, @importance(user-defined values for multiple variables, Boolean logic, system variables), @repeating, @overdue, #way-overdue, etc.) to provide users with some basic insight needed to choose what to do when. That’s the reason for building an app that people need because they can’t get by with keeping their lists…

  20. Manually sorting To-Do items

    User should be allowed to sort the To-Do items within a list manually using drag and drop feature and thereby move desired tasks to the top without even tagging their priority. The list should be labelled as manually sorted.

    Polly responded

    It is possible to manually sort in most lists. Please make sure that you don’t have a sort filter applied. You can exit the sort filter by clicking on the x at the top of the list.
