  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  11. Integrate Pomodoro functionality

    I would appreciate if there would be a timer for focusing on productivity.
    By adding a feature like this I would be able to manage my daily tasks and different categories and use the promodoro technique.

    Process:
    Start a timer
    Work until the timer rings
    Take a short break
    Every 4 Pomodoro (work periods) take a longer break

    Functionality:
    - adjustable timer
    - sounds
    - Listing the spent time in a log section

  12. 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…

  16. 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.

  19. Flagged email "open in Outlook" will open Outlook desktop instead of Outlook Web

    Flagged email feature is really a nice feature. but the "Open in Outlook" link, now it opens Outlook Web App (outlook online) instead of Outlook Desktop (if the outlook desktop installed). reasons are it will open the flagged email much faster with out openup an OWA session and majority users feel more convenient when working with Outlook desktop instead of Outlook Web App.
