  1. Show Steps / Subtasks in main view

    The subtasks shows up under the parent task in levels so that when the subtasks are completed the parent task will be completed too.

  2. 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...

  3. 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

  4. "My Tomorrow" please

    Add "My Tomorrow" in addition to "My Day". I like to plan a day in advance. Or make "My Day" more customizable.

  5. Reminder before actual due time (fixed 5 mins, 10 mins)

    Setting reminder few minutes prior to the initiation of a task.

    There should be a feature to set reminder 5, 10 or 20 minutes before a task I would like to start at a specific time. For example, if I want to do read a book at 9:00 am, the feature would help me remind myself at 8:55 am that I have to read the book at 9. Google and another app called tick tick in playstore does this really well.

  8. Sorting

    Have a double sorting feature. For example, sort my list by priority then alphabetically so all priorities are alphabetically sorted as well as the non priority tasks.

    Furthermore, the ability to re-arrange any items to create a custom sort of any list.

  10. Integrate with Trello

    Trello is a great tool for project management but there is no convenient way to keep track of your personal tasks (assigned cards) day by day. Also, in terms of productivity, I prefer to have a single todo list with all the tasks I have to do today, instead of checking multiple inboxes.

    Please build an integration with Trello that automatically synchronizes cards assigned to me with my ToDos. This integration has to be a continuous synchronization that also modifies ToDos if the card is modified. The ToDo should be set due to the date the Trello card is due.

  12. iOS 12 Siri Shortcuts

    Please integrate the new iOS 12 feature "Siri Shortcuts".
    It would be great to ask Siri for an overview of "My day" or to add new task based on a preconfigured shortcut.

  13. 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.

  14. When adding to "My Day," have a drop down menu of your lists to choose which list the task goes with.

    I work for two different Realtors plus I have a personal list. I'd like to be able to add a task to My Day without first having to go to the appropriate list, add the task, then click "add to my day."

  17. UNDO should actually undo moving tasks accidental completion click

    UNDO does not actually undo most actions. Example: Accidentally completed a task. Undo should remove completion for that task. Another example: Accidentally moved a task into "My Day". Undo should remove that task from My Day. Frankly, UNDO should function more like UNDO on Mac's Reminders app.

  18. (one click) skip overdue undone recurring task or move it to other dates

    An option to skip a repeating task would be nice. Like another post "Repeating tasks should not stack". If there is a daily repeating task and one doesn't do one day an option to "skip this one", or simple move it to "today" or "tomorrow", as an example, would be nice.

  19. Recycle Bin for deleted tasks and lists and sorting.

    Also, draging an item into the recycle bin will delete it. It should be sortable by deletion time or alphabetically.

  20. Categories

    Can Microsoft add categories on the app? They would spend less than a day to code this.

    Kind regards,
