  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.

  6. 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

  7. Templates for Tasks / Workflows

    There are often similar Tasks or Workflows in business. So it would be nice to have an option to define Templates for tasks/Workflows (Task with sub-tasks and dynamic reminders like 2-weeks after start). This would allow the user to manage internal processes with the todo-list. Maybe it's also possible to start a workflow by sending a mail to the todo-list and giving some attributes in the subject to initiate the details of the task/workflow.

  10. Persistent Reminder/Notifications (on lock screen or with sound)

    Persistent Notifications/Reminder option!

    It would be really useful to have an option that when a reminder is displayed, it keeps showing on the home screen until it's actioned or snoozed, like you can in iOS native reminders. This makes it much better as you are constantly reminded until you manually mark the reminder as complete. This would be so helpful and I've been waiting for this in Wunderlist for years. Please implement this if you can!

  12. Assign task to more than one person

    I use Wunderlist and I know the ability to share tasks is coming to To-Do but the one drawback with Wunderlist was not being able to assign a task to more than one person.

  14. Log & Search Completed ToDos

    Allow your completed ToDos to be kept, logged, and searchable. This would allow people to have a searchable log of the tasks and it's notes they've completed if needed. This data can be linked into a user's OneDrive account and accessible with other Microsoft office tools.

  20. 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.
