  1. Sub tasks

    It would be cool, if we could add sub tasks to a single entry. The parent should be expandable, so that sub tasks would be visible at a glance, and progress should be visible without expanding the parent task.

  3. Priority Levels

    You might have Most Important Task, or Important Task, or even a Bump List. Some Tasks are more important than others, So a Priority Level would be nice.

    Level 1 to Level 10

    Or Task Catagories: "Simple Quick Tasks", "Bump List",

    You can now use Microsoft To-Do with Cortana! Just follow the instructions here: support.office.com/article/using-microsoft-..? to get set up.

    Please note that if you’ve previously used Cortana with Wunderlist, you will need to manually disconnect Wunderlist from Cortana.

    The integration is also only available in English and in the following regions — Australia, India, US, and UK

  10. Hide completed tasks in My Day

    Much like Wunderlist, I like when I close out a task to see it removed (hidden) so I can see my list getting shorter during the day or week.

    Currently on "My Day" I have to manually right-click to remove a completed task, which feels like I need to click 2-3 times to close a task.

    Maybe consider adding the "hide complete tasks" options either site-wide or on this page as well. You have it everywhere else already (other lists)

    With version 1.33 we’ve added list options to My Day, so you can now select your background, sort your to-dos and choose to hide your completed to-dos there. The update should now be available in the Microsoft Store, Google Play Store, iOS App Store, as well as on to-do.microsoft.com in the browser.

  11. Microsoft Flow Integration

    Microsoft Flow currently supports Wunderlist and Todoist. Offering support for Microsoft To-Do would mean, that a lot of automations could work with this service as well (e.g. create a To-Do if I'm mentioned in a certain mail, etc.) This would enhance this service greatly

    We are happy to announce that you can now integrate Microsoft To-Do with Microsoft Flow.

    To create a flow using Microsoft To-Do, log in to Microsoft Flow with the same Microsoft Account you use with Microsoft To-Do. Then just select the connector or service you’d like to send a to-do from.

    You’ll then have the option to select the trigger you’d like to begin your flow, such as When a new email arrives. Now select + New step and then Add an action. From the available actions, select Microsoft To-Do – Add a to-do. You’ll also need to enter the Subject field in order to add a title for your to-do. Then select Save flow and you’re ready to go!

  12. Themes

    Please add more backgrounds and colors for the theme options and also let us choose a custom background.

    Thank you for all the votes and comments here! We are closing this feature suggestion as we have implemented an option to set background images for each list with version 2.0 of To Do. In case you have additional requests, please vote on the separate thread for more specific ideas.

  13. Less hidden Recurring items

    I don't see any way of setting reminders or recurring items, as you can with Wunderlist. I don't see the point of the app, otherwise.

  14. Make it like Wunderlist!

    Make it like Wunderlist! You own Wunderlist so why not just rename Wunderlist instead of starting with a new and featured challenged app!

    Today we’ve launched a brand new version of To Do. We took on your feedback and brought back some design elements of Wunderlist, but with a refresh. Now you can customize each list with a different background and choose from images (including that Berlin tower), color and pastel backgrounds.

    Read more about it here – https://aka.ms/m365blog/newtodo. And let us know what you think over on Twitter – https://twitter.com/MicrosoftToDo or Facebook – https://Facebook.com/MicrosoftToDo
    We’ve also recently launched our Mac app, list groups and task assignments.

    We’ll close this thread now. If there are still features that you would like to see please vote for them on the separate feature suggestions.

    We hope you love the new look as much as we do.

  15. Microsoft Launcher (Arrow Launcher) integration

    Wunderlist was cleanly integrated into arrow launcher. This new application is currently not.

  16. iPad support

    Please make the app work on iPad in a native mode instead of "2x" which makes it pretty much unusable.

  17. Change default list when opening

    The app should open up to "To-Do" instead of My Day. Or, if possible, users should be able to open to a custom list (which might default to "To-Do" if that custom list gets deleted).

  18. Offline Support

    Its better way if we can access it even without internet. There are some situations i think it helps a lot if it has offline support

    The last bug in the Windows 10 app has been fixed and it is now possible to open the app and see + add your tasks, also without having an Internet connection.
    With that, Microsoft To-Do now works offline on Windows 10, Android, and iOS.

  19. BUG: synchronisation issues

    Windows 10 app has incredible synchronization issues. Sometimes all tasks disappear from the app and then sync once again, but usually not fully.

    Similar happens via web - I see there only one third of my tasks.

    iOS app seems to be the most reliable.

    Thank you for voting on this feature!

    We are releasing this improvement with version 1.20 of our Microsoft To-Do Android App. The roll out starts today on December 14.

    You can now switch your lists in the Android Widget by using the dropdown menu directly in the Widget.
