  2. 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.

  3. intergration with onenote

    I love OneNote for organizing my work load and Staff. I often set tasks for my Staff and record in OneNote these tasks and what's completed. Be great if this can be integrated with Microsoft To-Do so that rather then copying the tasks for each staff in and email I can create and share via To-Do and when tasks are completed its reflected in OneNote

  7. Task entered in Outlook shows wrong due date in MS To-Do

    If I add a new Task in Outlook, set the Due Date as 15 May (as an example) after it syncs Microsoft To-Do shows incorrectly "Sun, 14 May" as Due Date.

    When I do it the other way around and add the to-do in MS To-Do and set the Due Date as Mon, 15 May after syncing Outlook correctly shows 15th of May.

    I can repro it all the time.

    It appears that either you have a bug in reading from your common backend with Outlook or Outlook has a bug in saving there.
    This started to happen after an…

  8. Reduce list header size

    When go to a list, I want to see as much of the list on screen as possible. I should not have to scroll to reduce the size of a HUGE header that is superfluous - no value.

    At least make it something I can chang in settings.

  9. 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!

  14. Sync with Wunderlist

    Its great that you can sync tasks from Wunrerlist to TO DO, but when you typing comments and tasks in TO DO it doesn't sync it back to Wunderlist. Maybe you can look at adding that.

    Thanks.

  17. Autocomplete based on Completed Tasks

    Example. I went to Costco to get Milk. I check it off as completed. A few weeks later, because I have it completed it is out of view. If I'm typing in Milk, the completed task should populate giving the user the option to uncheck it to add it back to the list. Would reduce redundancy in the completed section as well as users from having to retype tasks that are generally on their lists. Slightly different from redundant tasks as this is on demand.

  18. Steps/Subtasks - Ability to Hide/Unhide Completed Steps within a Task

    The new Steps feature has been introduced to meet the need for subtasks within a task. It is possible to easily reorder the steps and to delete them individually, but it would be highly desirable if the user could Hide/Unhide the list of Steps within a given task. That would decrease task clutter and increase usability. Hopefully, this is on your roadmap for the Step feature...

  20. Multiple reminders, nagging

    It will be really helpful if we can remind multiple times and repeat todos:
    ex. Multiple reminders within a day: Take a break(9am and 3pm)
    ex. Repeat the same reminder every 10 minutes to do laundry
