Microsoft To-Do is a simple and intelligent to-do list that makes it easy to plan your day. Whether it's for work, school or home, To-Do will help you increase your productivity and decrease your stress levels. It combines intelligent technology and beautiful design to empower you to create a simple daily workflow. Organize your day with To-Do's smart Suggestions and complete the most important tasks or chores you need to get done, every day. To-Do syncs between your phone and computer, so you can access your to-dos from school, the office, or the grocery store or even while you're traveling around the world.
You can quickly add, organize and schedule your to-dos while you're on the go. With important to-dos that you really shouldn't forget you can add reminders and due dates—we'll remember them for you. And if you have to-dos that you need to tick off on a daily, weekly or yearly basis you can set up recurring due dates to remind you each and every time. To-Do also works with your Outlook Tasks, making it easier to manage all of your tasks in whichever app you’re in. Whether you want to manage your to-dos when using Outlook or To-Do, they’ll always be available to you in both places.
You can also use To-Do as a note-taking app, adding detailed notes to every to-do—from addresses, to details about that book you want to read, to the website for your favorite café. You can collect all your tasks and notes in one place to help you achieve more.
What areas of your life do you want to be more productive in? You can have a color-coded list for each. Now you can quickly add your homework to one list, your groceries to another, your packing list, your work projects and your home DIY projects to yet more lists. You can create as many lists as fits your lifestyle. And if you follow a productivity system such as GTD (David Allen's Getting Things Done Methodology) then you can create a Someday list or a Follow-up list. To-Do is here for you, whether your goals are for this week or in 5 years time.

Don’t worry, you didn’t time travel every time you checked off a task—we fixed a bug which showed that your task was completed yesterday when you had only just checked it off.
We also fixed an issue that didn’t update the date on recurring tasks.
Were you getting overwhelmed by all the red dates on completed tasks? We were showing them as overdue, but we’ve changed them back to black now.
Ratings and Reviews
Simple, Clean, and Extremely Useful
Sounds cliché, but I never write reviews. Having noted that obligatorily, I simply love this app. I’ve used several other task list apps for years, including Wunderlist. This is simple to use, clean, and available on all the platforms I use. I should note that I use a Windows 10 PC for work, and the Windows 10 To-Do app is just as good or better, in my opinion. I love that it automatically syncs with Outlook’s task feature, and that flagged emails show up as tasks as well. I didn’t get the necessity of the “My Day” feature at first, but it’s become such a simple yet powerful method to focus on particular tasks so as not to get overwhelmed.
The icing on the cake, and what prompted me to even write this review, was finding out that one of my MS To-Do lists can be set as the default Reminders list for iPhone, meaning that when I ask Siri to set a reminder, it now sets it on my chosen MS To-Do list.
There are certainly some features that I love to see added, and from what I can tell, many are in the pipeline, but even as it is this has proven to be an extremely useful tool, and my favorite task app to-date!
Needs a lot of work
I am a physician and a scientist who requires a good to-do app to keep everything straight on a daily basis. Wunderlist was really the perfect tool for this, allowing me to organize and share tasks with lab members and clinical colleagues. When I learned it would eventually replace wunderlist, I decided to give To-Do a solid try. I imported all my lists from wunderlist, familiarized myself with all of To-Do’s features, and used it in place of Wunderlist for a good week. Unfortunately, a year after it’s unveiling, To-Do still needs a lot of work. The lack of a way to group related lists and the inability to automatically place tasks that are due today into the “my day” folder are critical deficiencies. Sure you can click the lightbulb in the “my day” folder and select all the upcoming tasks with the help of “suggestions,” but many (like me) cant remember to do that on a daily basis. The point of a to-do app is to make remembering all of your daily tasks unnecessary. I had so many issues with missing things (I literally have a hundred tasks some days) that I had to switch back to Wunderlist within a week. I know that the Microsoft team is working hard on To-Do behind the scenes. I plan to keep checking in and switch to to-do once it truly integrates all the features of wunderlist.
Much Better than the Rest Including Wunderlist!
I have struggled with this app over the last year always going back to gtasks and Due after giving up on To Do after a few days each time. It is now my main app. I love it. I surprisingly have grown to love the way the My Day disappears every night. It's very fast to repopulate every morning and you can scrutinize the list and just leave out the unnecessary ones. I have tried probably 10 todo apps and I'm kind of surprised that this one is by a good margin the best. However, why start the week on SUNDAY? Why not Monday as the Desktop version. Why not give options/customizing for snooze the way the excellent Due app does? Also, the Reminder later today or tomorrow is lame. Again, they can learn a lot from Due. Why not be customizable or just make it remind me in 1 hour as an option? Anyway, congratulations on some significant improvements!
Developer Response ,
I'm really sorry to hear that you're not getting along with the My Day view - we are working to improve this experience so it's easier to see your previously committed tasks. You can use the new Planned Smart List to see all your upcoming tasks with a Due Date as an alternative.
