Add these 2 features for 5 Stars!
by BigDaddyBobBob on 2020/10/26 13:52
Love the to do list and the ability to go from my Mac to my phone. Great task management app but we need an Apple Watch feature, also would love the ability to have my To Do list as a widget on my Home Screen.
Good app some problems
by Ally1234567891011 on 2020/10/25 20:53
good app but now when i complete a task that is set to go off daily it disappears! i have to re enter them in every time it’s really annoying
Best to do app out there
by Milindpom2539 on 2020/10/25 20:38
Works better than any.do for many reasons. Not only that but it works with outlook which is essential for me.
Bad overall user experience
by OliveFromJersey on 2020/10/25 17:51
I wish I could like this app but the overall user experience is just terrible. It doesn’t seem like Microsoft cares one bit about optimizing it for iOS. At the very least, include an undo button if the slightest little finger gesture is going to delete a task or mark something as complete or classify something as a sub task. The amount of frustration that this app generates is like none other.
Used to Be Great - Now Slow & Buggy w/ Tasks Disappearing
by Former Nextel User on 2020/10/25 15:47
What happened? It seems once I updated to the latest iOS the app got extremely slow to the point I need to force quit multiple times during usage. It's also slow to sync with my desktop version. With the latest update, tasks are mysteriously disappearing on the app but seem to be available later or on the desktop version. Please fix these problems, you "had" a great app!
Needs widget and Apple Watch
by yariww on 2020/10/24 19:49
Please make it possible to add widgets and to Apple Watch
Security not necessary;
by RetitrdTeacher8yrs on 2020/10/24 19:14
This sudden need for us to type in our password is totally not necessary but only should be an option. There is nothing on our to do lists that needs to be secure information. Most of our use is when we are out on the road and it is most annoying to be remembering our stupid passwords.
Great but wishing for three features
by Onur the Doc on 2020/10/24 19:09
1) The option to customize quick reminders like in Wunderlist 2) The ability to set reminders for individual subtasks 3) A widget!
Best app
by reinereviews on 2020/10/24 08:07
No ads, no payments, no BS. It just works. Syncs across all your devices, no headaches. Can’t be better than that. The kind of app that kind of just blends in, you never really think about it. That’s how you know it’s a good app.
Subpar experience
by Jackson Fivestars on 2020/10/24 06:08
Syncing is touch and go, can't complete tasks from iOS lock screen, syncing in background doesn't work at all. Wunderlist was simple and did the basic functions well, and I was hoping Microsoft would build on the product, not make it worse. I hope background syncing will work soon, maybe even add back in the ability to do natural language due dates at task input time... Still, if there's a better cross platform to do app, I haven't found it. Wunderlist was the gold standard.
Not good when swiping.
by Sylvvi on 2020/10/24 04:53
The concept is great and I use it to keep my bills in order. However, for something so important to keep track of it’s not a good app. You shouldn’t be able to just swipe and accidentally make stuff become marked complete. It happens so quickly and then all of a sudden you are stuck figuring out what’s missing. All I do is swipe down the list and things go flying off the screen. Very annoying.
Bugs iPhone
by GP's iPhone on 2020/10/23 18:27
Still having problems using it on my iPhone, will wait next version.
Almost there
by CubsWS2016 on 2020/10/23 12:17
Needs Apple Watch support and ios14 widget.
Great product. One suggestion
by d.w.645 on 2020/10/23 00:01
The only issue I have had is that it’s quite easy to mark tasks “completed” if you scroll through the list using your left thumb. Could be avoided if the app changes the way things are marked completed. For example, maybe a swipe is more error proof.
Perfect app but NEEDS APPLE WATCH APP
by Dani12000 on 2020/10/22 20:39
This is my favorite to-do app. It's extremely organized, with different categories & ways to organize them. So much functionality. I recently got an Apple Watch and have tried other to-do apps but this is my favorite. It's absolutely needed in the Apple Watch App Store. Even if it didn't offer all the functions, it would still be extremely useful. Many other users would agree & many people would also prefer this app over the other to-do apps offered on the watch.
Perfect!
by MomOWar on 2020/10/22 15:16
Thank you for letting the checked stuff be alphabetized! Now it’s perfect for reoccurring groceries. 👍
Missing tasks
by JPM4189 on 2020/10/22 13:14
I am very frustrated. I have daily “to dos” that just DISAPPEAR!! I have gotten used to this App since being “pushed” here from Wunderlist. This problem is causing me to look at other to do list App.
Perfectly simple
by Cookiesqsh on 2020/10/21 19:01
Literally exactly what I was looking for. Simple and can be edited to your preference. It’s actually motivating me to do things. Onlyyyyyyy thing is I really wish they had a widget!
App keeps crashing even after reinstall and recent update.

crashing even after reinstall and recent update.
Better than ever
by aplus89 on 2020/10/21 07:38
Definitely Microsoft has a team of software developers that knows what is doing.
Good app - iOS 14 widget please!
by nyted on 2020/10/20 21:06
Good to do list. Needs widget.
Widget!!!
by د.حسين on 2020/10/20 20:33
Please add widget for iOS 14
Trash
by kris88suteru on 2020/10/20 20:33
Non-existant customer service means it took entirely too long to fully transfer my lists into this app. Every time I open the app the wrong email is in the login. I’ve been locked out multiple times and Microsoft gives my phone number an error message so I can’t get a code to reset it either. Now I’m finally back in the app and it won’t let me open any lists. It just keeps creating a new list. I don’t need a new list! I need to review the old lists! I’m incredibly frustrated and if I had to do it again I’d never have touched this app.
Disappointing
by StonefordMama on 2020/10/20 02:47
I am having difficulty syncing this app from my PC to my iPhone 6 and haven’t been able to find out how to correct this.
Auto remove feature
by Aya12s on 2020/10/20 00:50
I think this app truly need auto remove feature.
Excelente
by Pastor Alberto on 2020/10/19 14:49
Muy versátil y si lo instalas en todos los equipos se actualiza
Love this app!
by Hbow on 2020/10/18 17:09
I use this app for a lot of different things! I have my grocery list, a list for recurring bills, inventory lists, and even long kept lists for packing for specific trips! It’s easy to set up recurring bills that auto update themselves in order. For my packing lists, you can hide items as you’ve packed them for a trip, and then you can uncheck and repopulate your list for the next trip (or to double check if you’re like me.)
Cross platform?
by SKF 54 on 2020/10/18 11:51
Love the app. Would love it more if you could access from multiple devices.
Absolute CRAP
by Mix337 on 2020/10/18 07:48
Will not open on either my iPhone or iPad. Have no idea if a delete/reinstall will retain the extensive info I’ve input and have trusted this app to maintain. This app is the worst TO DO list I’ve ever used.d
Flagged email bug
by KingRorako on 2020/10/18 02:58
What I love about to do is that when I flag an email it adds the email to the app with a link do the message. The Outlook app breaks when doing this though.
10x worse than Wunderkist
by KillerKip on 2020/10/17 18:27
Microsoft f’s it up again!
Better than Wunderlist
by Seattleguy100 on 2020/10/17 14:20
When I first started using to do about eight months ago I thought it wasn’t as good as wonder list. However Microsoft keep name keeps making changes and now I think it is actually quite a bit better than wonder list.I especially like the “My Day” feature. It helps me get organized every morning.
No longer syncs
by Ano-nym-ous on 2020/10/17 13:56
After I reset my phone, ToDo no longer syncs with my Outlook.com. It thinks that it does and reports successful synchronization yet I have over 80 tasks on the web and only 5 on the phone. Worse, this also now happens with my iPad app, leading me to think that something got broken on the server side. The fun part ? All of the tasks sync just fine with Reminders. That’s right, MS’ own service works more reliably with Apple Reminders than its own apps. Of course I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, deleting and readding account, rebooting, copying the tasks out and back in... and the icing on the cake was MS Tech support, who responded by giving me a link to setting up synchronization on iOS. Yeah, genius, my established sync doesn’t work, how do you read it to mean that I need instructions on how to set it up the first time ? Typical MS. So, back to the Goodtask / Reminders I go.
The best
by Arswipe on 2020/10/16 21:29
This is the best organizational tool ever! I use it in all our businesses and for personal items.
Helps get more accomplished!
by Mommiebeth on 2020/10/16 15:20
I have trouble with staying focused and this app helps me get more done! It also builds my confidence because I can see how many activities and chores I have completed. I am so thankful for this app. I have tried others, but this seems to be easy to use and visually appealing.
Problems for months
by Mryoungcom on 2020/10/16 11:55
I want to like this app. I’ve used it for 9 months or so because it’s simple and it’s Microsoft so I hold out hope that the issues will be fixed. But they haven’t been. Basically, until the newest upgrade to iOS 14 I’ve had to check off items twice for them to move on to the next recurrence. That’s annoying and can easily be confusing when they pop up again and you have to remember if you did it or not already. Now, that issue is mostly resolved, but recurrence settings are screwed up. Items that are supposed to go to the next day just end and I have to manually go in and fix them. I’m going to find another to do app with working recurrence features. The experiment with this one is over.
Slow connection, missing tasks
by Anon7890 on 2020/10/15 23:35
Seems to be getting worse with updates. It’s very slow to connect and take input when editing or marking a task as done. There are also tasks that just disappear but will show up again later.

Update: Latest version unusable on iOS and iPadOS 14+
by Hoosierzimbob on 2020/10/14 21:58
*** UPDATE: the crash upon login is back on both IOS and iPadOS 14+. App back to being unusable. I’m considering re-firing my subscription to Todoist. *** UPDATE with version 2.28: login issue described below has been FIXED. App crashes upon start on both iOS and iPadOS 14.0.1. My app is managed by my employer - that may be a problem with login. But, the app is currently not useable. Please fix.
Simply a great app
by Quazi M.Ahmed on 2020/10/14 16:06
I love this app and it has made my life easier and better. I can’t think of any other app that could do so much... the best part? It’s free...I mean I have done all my work within the limits of the free version. Kudos!
Spacing and now Crashes constantly
by Machodan on 2020/10/14 15:17
I was a fan of wunderlist. I dealt with the integration to Microsoft Tasks (To Do). The past month, something must have changed. Many lines would appear with tasks notes. Now, the App it won’t even open on my iPhone or iPad. Is this a Microsoft vs Apple issue?
App will no longer start
by pedroa81 on 2020/10/13 23:01
The last update has made this app crash every time it starts. Very frustrating.
Poor substitute for Wunderlist
by Reddy Kilowatt on 2020/10/12 23:06
When I complete a task, why does my Windows 10 app still interrupt my work to complete that task, days later? No Google calendar integration... Just another example of a giant company buying something cool and ruining it.
Issue with Additional lines is now fixed
by Gsgsgsgsv on 2020/10/12 17:59
For the last few weeks, Every time I add/edit notes to a task, the app is introducing so many additional empty lines. It’s now fixed.
Very great
by Nyaz_jamel on 2020/10/12 17:19
I gave 5 star for this application
Not quite the same as Wunderlist, but it will do
by Liast on 2020/10/12 16:44
Many options are the same as Wunderlist, but I wish there was a capability to move items to a different place, both within a list and to a different list
Buggy, something went south recently
by Mr. Male on 2020/10/12 13:04
Fix it - seriously, your supposed to be one of the top tech firms in the world. Fix it.
Most used / favorite app
by .nick.name. on 2020/10/12 01:35
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Great app! We use this for our small business and much prefer it to Wunderlist. Any chance we can have widgets and/or watch complications added? That’d make this app perfect! Thanks!
Just a list
by F4b14nc1t0 on 2020/10/12 00:50
This is an app to write a list. You can keep a list with any app: a word processor, even a spreadsheet is able to keep a list.
Great App But Missing Authentication Protection
by virgatepower27 on 2020/10/11 23:11
It is a great app! But can you add in the feature of authentication asking for fingerprint or PIN when open the app? I believe that others people who has access to my iPad don’t need to see my ToDo list.
Spacing bug!!!!!
by MPI44 on 2020/10/11 21:48
Long time Wunderlist user & loved the app before. I have tolerated the MS changes, but now it creates spacing gaps (never had issue w/Wunderlist) every time I add anything to “Add Note” it creates spaces, rendering it useless as a productivity tool.
Good, but missing real multi account support
by bpoe138 on 2020/10/11 20:54
I like the app, it has good feature and it’s very usable. It’s main drawback that keeps me switching back to Apple Reminders is its very poor multi-account support. It claims to support a work and home account, but you can’t see tasks from each at the same time, you have to manually switch accounts. It also lacks support for iCloud accounts.
Labels and widget
by Hosseinm7 on 2020/10/11 19:46
Please add labels for tasks and widget in the Home Screen.
Spaces spaces
by kapaoke on 2020/10/11 14:32
All of sudden I started to get spaces between lines. Looks like I am not alone. Never had issues from with Wunderlist app .
Terrable Experience
by M Bahareth on 2020/10/11 13:38
First of all i was forced to move to this app from wunderlist app and forced to use my Microsoft login. I migrated everything from thevapp but the experience is not the same not the feeling. I jave stopped using this app specially that Microsoft has abdoned it and stopped making new functionality and features like then it was wunderlist. I moved to another app and this app is just for remembering the old tims. You can find reminders in IOS 14 or Trello or any other app, at least they care about thier apps unlike Microsoft.
Not a reliable reminders app
by Nikitawillis on 2020/10/11 12:00
Good for organizing to do lists. Very poor as a reminders app. Constantly miss reminders at very specific times. Today it notified me 14 minutes after the pre-set time (this is also a repeating weekly reminder). This happens randomly but all too often, so I finally had enough and deleted the app and changed to the Alarmed app which has never failed my wife. Wunderlist was good. Too bad Microsoft ruined it.
Worthless
by JRay88 on 2020/10/10 21:02
I would give zero stars if I could. I used to love Wunderlist, it made coordinating shopping/packing/to do lists with my easy and fast. Lists updated between users and stayed in sync. Ever since wunderlist was phased out and Microsoft To Do has replaced it we have had nothing but issues. Inviting people to lists sometimes works, even if they accept the invite the app might not add them to the list. On shared lists, the app doesn't stay updated. Even if I force it to sync, my lists won’t stay updated. This makes shopping very difficult if my wife adds an item, but I miss it because my list hasn’t synced. Even when I check items off, they don’t remove from other peoples lists. I’ve tried logging out and back in, deleting and reinstalling the app. Nothing has helped.
To do
by Miosio381974 on 2020/10/10 21:02
Es un muy buen programa
Widget???
by jazzclubokc on 2020/10/10 19:22
Will you ever add a widget? It would be helpful and more efficient if users could quickly see and check off tasks for the day without having to open the app. If would be even more beneficial and functional to have this ability now since the widget can be placed on the Home Screen.
Please fix bug!!
by Emilshdueys on 2020/10/10 16:56
App is mostly good, but there’s a bug, and one suggestion that’ll make it better. Bug: when I add notes to a task, the code seems to be replacing a new line with 2 new lines every time I view the note. every time I view the note, the spaces between lines doubles, which is frustrating, especially for long notes that become difficult to read. New: this feature existed in Wunderlist and I was disappointed when it was removed. I need to be able to sort by priority, but then within the priority I also want to order the tasks, so in wunderlist I used to drag the individual task items even after they were sorted. I can’t do that anymore in ms to do :( 5 stars if not for these issues.
The space will be created automatically
by lmw41 on 2020/10/10 10:40
The space will be created automatically in detail of the list
Need place for costs
by harvey elmore on 2020/10/10 10:05
Use it for a grocery list but would like to be to either have a place for costs of each or ability to scan in items
Errors in spacing
by RachP13 on 2020/10/09 17:18
All of a sudden, the program keeps creating huge spaces between line items and it is hard to track.
The Truth
by Free Man22 on 2020/10/09 16:53
This app is garbage. They have destroyed Wunderlist. There is nothing left.

No app badge notification
by U8us28shw8shhsw on 2020/10/09 01:09
Have no idea how many tasks are outstanding due to no app badge notification, this maybe only for iOS devices but come on. Should be very simple to implement, please update. I do like the UI and customizable options.
Really Good
by thr_rtaylor on 2020/10/08 22:14
Simple, clean design. Integrated with all my Microsoft “work” apps and programs. Only one complaint - I wish that items would roll over from My Day that I don’t complete to the next day. Or am I missing a setting?
Latest update ruins app
by selinson on 2020/10/08 16:04
This used to be my favorite app but after that last update it has become very annoying. Every time I add notes to a task, after I close it it adds an extra paragraph space to all existing paragraphs. This happens each time you open the task so after opening a task three time, all paragraphs are triple spaced. Please fix this bug. There are dozens of complaints about it on the Microsoft website.
No widget
by readingthings on 2020/10/08 06:29
This would be my all time favorite app if I could add it to the side menu on my phone. It’s really handy for me to see what’s on my list for the day right there so unfortunately a deal breaker for me. I will definitely be keeping my eye on this app though just in case they add a widget soon!
Adding extra line!
by xb7689 on 2020/10/08 01:30
Keep adding extra lines when I save a note. It has been couple weeks
add smart stacks for it
by simon well on 2020/10/07 21:45
This is such a powerful app between any other reminder apps that I’ve seen, thanks to developers and support team of course 🙂 today at iOS 14 there is a empty space in smart stacks for this app and it will be so helpful that you add smart stacks for upcoming events 🙏
List

Great program for appointments and reminders. Very easy to navigate around.
Ruined Wunderlist
by amunchkin on 2020/10/07 15:50
Adding exponential extra spaces toook this from a poor Wunderlist substitute to unusable. Customer suppport saying to “be patient” isn’t helpful when all my to dos are destroyed.
Extra space BUG makes lists unusable
by KAH0123 on 2020/10/07 04:31
I was a former Wunderlist user and was optimistic about the To Do app as a replacement. Until recently, it had been a great list keeper. Now when editing a list, extra rows are randomly added in between the list items. Sometimes there is just one space between each line item but often there are multiple blank rows so you can’t even see your list on the screen without scrolling down, down, down.
Love it
by JaxKala on 2020/10/06 19:22
Does everything I need it to do. Like how what I write down will go to my iPad also!!
Easy to use and clean interface!
by Kate meester on 2020/10/06 17:49
I’ve been using Microsoft To-Do for a while now and have never had any issues with it. I would LOVE to see them make a widget for this to easily check off your completed tasks through your Home Screen!
Spacing issues
by Chickabrie on 2020/10/06 17:48
All of the sudden the notes within “to do” items keep adding spaces every time we close the list resulting in a near impossibility to keep information organized. Items in the notes end up miles apart. We moved to this app when Wunderlist closed and are now searching for a replacement.
Bring back Wanderlist
by Chiaralucia on 2020/10/06 12:14
What used to be simple is now complicated and it loses data. No thanks ! Very disappointed
No widget

Terrible and unusable!!!
by peteshaolin on 2020/10/06 02:54
Extra lines added each time I open a task. Totally unusable now and I’ve moved all my tasks to to do. Arghhh!!!!
Ruined Wunderlist...so mad!!!
by PelhamFridayPizzaNight! on 2020/10/06 01:33
I used wunderlist for years and ran part of my business with it; quite successfully and without any issue I might add. Now, To Do consistently (daily) randomly deletes entries I’ve made. It’s a crap shoot now whether the items I’ve entered on a list will be there in 5 minutes. It’s the WORST glitch!!!! I can’t stand this app. It never works right. It takes a few minutes to load up every time I open it. I have hundreds of lists from wunderlist and never had issues there. Now I’m left looking for a different app. I LOVED wunderlist and I HATE this app!!!!!
Push Notifications Not Working
by SATXRN on 2020/10/05 23:16
My spouse and I use a shared list for groceries. We aren’t getting push notifications on our devices anymore. Not sure when the last time we did.
Still too buggy
by Investedistrict on 2020/10/05 04:40
I want to give this more stars...it’s a nice to look at todo app that gets the job done. And it does try and recreate the wunderlist experience that I loved. But it’s been months of bugs, and after giving the dev team the benefit of the doubt I have to give a bad review. Really no excuse at a company like Microsoft for this level of poor QA None of the bugs are crippling, but they are annoying, and not up to the standard set by other apps. Would list the issues but they seem to change every month
Very useful
by Flako00 on 2020/10/05 00:07
I love this app!
Had high hopes...
by BOK350 on 2020/10/04 22:01
Loved Wunderlist, relied on it for years. Was really excited when I saw Microsoft finally not only implement, but surpass the utility of Wunderlist. Then, reality set in. Lists not showing up on my different devices. Updates seem to help, then the lists and sync issues pop up again. No errors, just some lists/items seem to stop syncing. The lists are always available on the web app, but not on the iOS or windows app. Hate the cynicial trope that Microsoft buying an app or technology is the kiss of death, and was excited to see Wunderlist/todo possibly a shining exception, but no - Microsoft regards consumers as their unwitting focus groups for incubation of patent portfolios, nothing more. They’ll shutter this app once they’ve gleaned what they need from it.
Good, but buggy
by therobbiedshow on 2020/10/04 16:27
Overall, I have enjoyed using this todo app to organize my life. However, one bug in particular is causing me to reconsider using the app. That is, when you add a note to a todo item and return to it, you will notice that the app has added extra line breaks. If you remove them, they will return and, sometimes, new ones will appear.
Love the app
by Bbq111! on 2020/10/04 12:45
Tried a lot of To Do lists, this is the best so far — looks just awesome. One thing I find annoying is that there’s some kind of a bug that makes really, really hard to drag & drop any item to the very bottom of the list.
buggy...
by あみの93 on 2020/10/04 05:56
I was a user of Wunderlist and I loved it and I am using this app now instead but there are buggy once I open on my laptop windows 10. An URL link put on the “Add Note”, it gets increase to like 10 URLs, and then I deleted and modified but it happened again. Now each task that with URLs on “Add Note” gets double, meaning two URLs... and there are misconversion letters and emojis. Those bugs make me so frustrated.
No access to tasks.
by bpb3038 on 2020/10/03 22:48
Some it gives me access to tasks other times it doesn’t. I miss wunderlist
Slow and buggy
by Icedtea29 on 2020/10/03 21:52
When you have notes inside a task, let’s say you have 100 lines of sentence in single space, when you open them it magically DOUBLE SPACE or 10x the double space....fix it.
Extra spaces
by RichmondExerciser on 2020/10/03 21:17
What’s with the extra spaces in my description section? Every time I delete the extra spaces and close out the app, when I reopen they’re back. Super frustrating when I want to just read my short notes and I have to scroll so much.
Doesn’t respect sound settings
by Vinnythepue on 2020/10/03 21:00
Pressing complete on a task blows out the speaker
Not great right now
by Jennifer Ro on 2020/10/03 20:21
I have been using To Do list for a while now and came over from Wunderlist. Right now it is glitching BAD! Each time I go into it my to do list lines are separated by a line, then 2 lines, then full pages. It is so irritating! Please fix this!!!!
Had it for years
by txrancherpilot on 2020/10/03 20:21
It worked just fine until the last upgrade complicated the app and the model took away my functionality. Sent an email to support and didn’t hear anything back. If you don’t need this complicated mess just use apple reminders.
Carriage returns
by JWildcard on 2020/10/03 15:51
There has been an update recently which is causing my entries to have carriage returns between every line item when I open the list. This is become a major annoyance and could potentially ruin the functionality of this app if not fixed quickly.
Bad login user experience
by cocototo on 2020/10/03 15:34
Login on a website? It’s destroyed the app named wonderlist
Unsure how to use it
by Luvgooddeals on 2020/10/03 11:43
I want to lie this but have no idea how to use it. I would love for it to be scheduled and pop up on my computer screen or phone as a reminder of my to do’s but it doesn’t.
FINALLY Matches & Surpasses Wunderlist!
by LYAppleUser on 2020/06/04 16:08
This morning, the creators of “Microsoft To Do” FINALLY fixed enough of the features on this app to meet my former expectations of “Wunderlist!” “Microsoft To Do” (at first) had a lot of fun new features like colorful backgrounds for lists, and a few more sorting options, but was still missing some of the BASICS I enjoyed in “Wunderlist:” Here are my favorite two: 1) Being able to quickly recover a RECENTLY checked-off item at the TOP of the completed items, within a given list. Example: In “To Do” completed items were initially only alphabetized. I have an ongoing (reusable) grocery list including HUNDREDS of products. I even number them, by aisle, to ensure I see them “in order.” (Even if I’m in a different store, it still, at least, “categorizes” them together). But an “accidentally checked off” item, while shopping, was virtually GONE (until I got home & realized what was missing). This was fixed! Now I can just look at the TOP of the completed list. And, 2) Now I can see upcoming tasks separated out BY DAYS. In the past, anything beyond tomorrow was lumped together. Now, just like in Wunderlist, I can quickly find an upcoming day to which a task can be quickly moved/reassigned. And one of my favorite NEWER features of “To Do:” if you want certain tasks to recur/repeat in the future, say, only Mondays Wednesdays & Fridays (as opposed to once a week, or once a day) it can do this! Very cool. Keep up the great work!
Best To-Do List App I have Found
by TheZZman2000 on 2019/10/16 14:17
I would have to say that overall Microsoft To-Do is a fantastic app and definitely the best to-do list app I have used. They make it very easy for someone with an ever growing and changing list of things that need to be done to organize everything in their life. For example: I have my main tasks listed in the default list but I also have a list for each of the jobs I work, and a group with lists for all of my college classes and their assignments. And the best part is you can view everything that needs to be done today, tomorrow, next week, and later from all of those lists all on one page in the “Planned” tab. This app also works really well across multiple platforms by instantly syncing changes. I use it on my iPhone, iPad, and Windows PC. A main feature I would really love to see added for the versions on iOS and iPadOS is the ability to add Microsoft To-Do to your widgets this way you can see and check things off your list all right from your home screen. My biggest complaint is that whenever you add a task from the “Planned” tab it defaults to being due yesterday??? But overall it’s a to-do list app and I think you would have a really difficult time finding a better one out there.
Not Terrible but There’s Issues
by nyx74 on 2020/03/05 22:16
So I’m trying to wean myself off Wunderlist to the To Do app and while it’s not terrible there are issues. For one I’m not crazy about the Planned section at all. If anything it feels cluttered and unorganized. The earlier tab brings up tasks I’ve not set dates for and ironically haven’t used recently but the only way I can remove them is by marking them as complete and 100% eliminating them. So unless I want to continuously create a new shopping task rather than edit the preexisting one in my earlier tab I guess they’ll have to hang around uselessly in Planned. The other issue I have with Planned is how jumbled up the rest of the week looks when you’re trying to see what tasks are coming up. In Wunderlist your week was sectioned into days and your tasks were allotted to those days. Now the tasks are all piled together under one tab that accounts for most of the week and it just seems like unnecessary clutter. The other issues I came across was that “My Day” doesn’t auto populate which seems rather redundant and I preferred when the important tasks moved to the top of the lists. It would also be really awesome to move the tasks assigned to each day in an order of importance if that became available. I know To Do is still an app in progress but I do rely upon my planners a lot and hope it eventually becomes as successful as the beloved Wunderlist.
Game Changer
by friedlawyer on 2020/08/17 04:00
This app is extremely useful and, unlike many apps that are merely fun and interesting, this one could literally change your life or business if applied thoughtfully. It has some features built in which seem to follow suggestions from mainstream best sellers on organization such as one of my personal favorites: Getting Things Done by David Allen. I know it is based off another program which I never owned. I use the app on my iPhone, iPad and two versions on my desktop—one in a web browser and an iOS app. All four versions have similar features but actually have some extra features you gave to search for almost like a treasure hunt! The browser version allows you to copy tasks and next steps which allows you to create templates for repeated tasks. You can share lists with friends/co-workers as well to delegate next-steps. I recommend you explore the program thoroughly before spending time making detailed lists—there are a few things it cannot do, and knowing what they are helps you to organize your lists properly. I am still exploring the program but have been using it with a lot of success. Good luck. I’m sure Microsoft will continue to improve the program over time.
Works well just needs a few tweaks!
by djun13l on 2020/04/18 14:08
I used to write all my checklists on paper pads and cross things out and then throw away the papers when I was done, but this app is perfect! I can make organized categories of checklists so I can have multiple ongoing lists, and I like that items can be pinned to My Day for what I need to get done today specifically. And the checked off sound is great! My only complaints are that the UI could use some small adjustments. I like to check off items, but then after, I have to delete them. I personally don't think both are necessary but my main issue is that it takes a while to delete items! If I've completed a bunch of items then I have to spend several minutes deleting each one. Also, it's a little difficult to swipe the menu open, I frequently end up unintentionally moving the position of one list item so then they get scrambled, if I didn't accidentally combine two items and have to delete and re-add one. And of course when I want to rearrange the items, they don't want to insert to the bottom of the list either. I'm hoping these things will get fixed over time but so far I'm enjoying the app!
Needs a lot of work
by Isami87 on 2018/05/02 12:44
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!
by Jim NY on 2020/09/19 08:23
ToDo Microsoft 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!
Not bad but not good either
by Karid73 on 2020/03/23 17:38
I am also a wunderlist fan trying to make the switch. The biggest frustration I have at the moment is when I’m making my grocery list. I always sorted on wunderlist with the importance or the star icon. And then I put the list in order from my routine in the store. I weekly shop for a family of 6 and it takes me about 45 mins with my list in order including driving time. However with this new app I can sort my list by importance but then they won’t let you reorder your items manually also. So when I cancel the sort list by importance it changes it to some other way of sorting. Instead of just leaving it in it’s previous sorted order but making it so I can make manual changes it changes the sorting order. I have no idea which order since I took off any kind of sorting. It’s very frustrating. So it looks like it’s impossible to put my shopping list in order of how I go through the store to make it quicker. Without first writing my list down and then transferring it to this app. When I don’t have my list in order my shopping trip takes quite a bit longer to complete. It’s so frustrating especially with this corona virus situation and me being in the high risk category as I’m expecting. Please update the app to make it more like wunderlist!!!!!!!
Gets Cluttered Fast
by Skiskull on 2019/12/05 18:23
This is like every other notepad app out there, meaning it does nothing helpful for how people put together real life task lists. I use my iPhone’s notepad with checkboxes, and manually update tasks for everything i do. Some are daily, some are long-term. So of course a real to do list app would be able to organize that right? And allow daily tasks to reoccur and be completed daily, alongside long-term ones. Well this app, like all the others, doesn’t. You can make tasks reoccur... but they won’t show up in ‘My Day’ by default. BUT after you complete one for the day (eg. Brush teeth), it’ll just reappear randomly in the list with subtext of ‘tomorrow’, which is beyond useless, beyond unintuitive or logical, and clutters the entire list. Then the whole ‘My Day’ feature gets pretty dumb if tasks can’t autopopulate there. All in all, giving Microsoft the responsibility to make something intuitive is always bound to fail, so this is really just like every other worthless, weakly supported, temporarily-named, overlapping functionality MS product out there. Win10’s, and to a lesser extent the Office suite is fine (necessary evils really, you can’t escape Windows or Office), but don’t let that fool you into thinking ANYTHING else they ever introduce in their ecosystem is useful or useable.
Not as Good as Wunderlist - Needs Improvement
by HeatherMDP on 2020/03/09 01:21
I was a Wunderlist user for many, many years. When I upgraded to a new phone recently, I saw the notice that Wunderlist will be going away (sad face) and this will be its replacement. I was happy to be able to transfer all my lists easily to this new app. However, one of the biggest annoyances about this one is that I can’t manually rearrange my lists! It allows you to automatically arrange it by such things as alphabetically and importance (starred items). However, you can’t rearrange it further. For instance, if you have multiple items with stars, and you have the list sorted by importance, but you add a new starred item, it goes to the bottom of the starred items, and you can’t move it to the very top unless you change the entire order of all items (whether they are starred or not) by date of creation or something. But then, your starred items aren’t at the top anymore and are scattered throughout. This is sssooo annoying; it makes me not want to use this app at all. I want to be as loyal to this app as I was to Wunderlist. This is a big oversight in the design of this app. Until this is fixed, I can only give it 3 stars. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP!
Frustrated!
by Dust907601 on 2020/04/18 17:34
I am so frustrated with Microsoft To Do! It has been extremely frustrating trying to import my lists to Microsoft To Do from Wunderlist. It will not store any of my image files within the app, but says I can import them onto my phone or computer as a file, which defeats the purpose of having a list for things that need files. For instance, I have a dietary food chart that I need to refer to frequently. The app does not allow for this due to the file size being too large. I enjoy making lists of gift ideas or future things I wish to order with a web site or image on my list. It will not allow for any of this, which has caused me to no longer have access to these lists. I did download these as a file but it is not in list form but just a mis mash list of images one after another. Also, another frustration is that when I simply wanted to invite my husband to share a grocery list with me, it ended up inviting a whole group of my contacts that were added automatically somehow. I miss the ease of Wunderlist and hope that Microsoft can update this app to make it at least as good as Wunderlist was.
Tasks and Outlook
by NB Unicorn on 2020/08/11 13:02
Hello - I love tasks, however it doesn’t community to email as I would like. It doesn’t allow me to create a note/task tied directly to an email. Every email that comes in has action items tied to it. So if we had the ability to add a Note/task to that email, it would help us focus on the actionable items of importance. If we open 100 emails a day, that’s a lot of action items. And if we wanted to prioritize those actions of importance, we need an organized way to see those actions. So the tasks would appear in 2 locations exactly the same. Duplicate. One on the task bar as it is today, and the other would appear as a icon of some sort on the email itself. Could you add an icon on the email options for “tasks/notes” with time and date stamps on them so we can get even more strategic on what we are completing first. Also, if we do get the option to create an action task for email, can that option also be made available for the mobile app. I try and work on my phone as often as I can however it’s not as efficient as the desktop applications.
Merely populates iPhone Reminders
by billy'n'holly on 2020/05/11 11:12
I’ll give this app 2-stars because it doesn’t crash ... but seriously, why would anyone WANT to quit using the superior Wunderlist for this half-effort? Any item you create is stored in the iPhone Reminders as a to-do, but neither scheduled nor shared with associates. Items are not entered by default with a due date, and even if you do add a due or reminder date, they’ll disappear from “today” and don’t carry over to tomorrow, so you must manually add any tasks from a single list of ALL tasks. If you mark an item with a star ... well that’s meaningless. And should you open your iPhone Reminders, you’ll find 100’s of stored there, thereby making simple reminders (like “go to bed”) lost amongst the work tasks that didn’t require being spammed through the Reminders app, not to mention now your to-do of “turn in report” has the same unimportant notification appearance, sound, and limited snooze options as “pick up kids from school”. Utterly worthless and a lesson for how to drive away millions of customers so an app exists solely to have O365 but without any of Wunderlist’s functionality. What a waste.
Missing the “PRINT LIST” feature! Frustrated...
by ABerry83 on 2020/03/10 01:45
I am a Wunderlist user who (like many many others) was forced to migrate to Microsoft To Do. I had for years used Wunderlist’s “PRINT LIST” option which allows me to print about a dozen or so weekly cleaning and chore lists for around the house DIRECTLY from my iPhone via AirPrint and send all my checklists to my home printer wirelessly—complete with indented tasks, sub-tasks, task notes, page numbers, neatly organized checkboxes next to each item, and even a proper header and footer with the date my list was printed, etc.; however, this same option to print is NOT available in Microsoft To Do which is very frustrating since I have use this feature on a weekly basis for years now. I had spent a significant amount of time creating detailed lists for other things such as an “RV Checklist” and others. Now, since we are forced to move away from Wunderlist to the lessor Microsoft To Do app, I will have to spend time finding and migrating again over to another better app that allows me a simple option to directly print my lists from my iPhone via AirPrint straight to my networked home printer.
Keeps getting better
by Scotteeboy on 2020/04/06 04:33
This app is so well supported, with constant interactions at it’s worth checking out - especially if you work within Microsoft 365 and the Microsoft ecosystem. That said, the more information it brings in, the more it needs to allow you to filter the info. That’s where it has some shortcomings. To make this a great app I’d like to see better filtering capabilities so I can filter the info I need to see across lists (even if the tasks are coming from Planner). I’d like to move planner tasks into various lists. I’d like a list of my tags so I don’t have to guess at what tags I’ve got out there. Saved items from Teams should also be brought into To-do in the same way planner tasks are brought in. And of course, there should be option to automatically populate My Day. I understand why this feature is missing but it needs to be an option if the user wants it. That would help take some of the manual work out of using My Day. Thanks again to the To Do team.
Missing a few things
by Etta1975 on 2020/01/21 14:15
Over all good app but there are a few things it’s missing that other apps have. I make a list of “todo” and if I don’t get to one task it sits there in past waiting for me to click it. I e seen other apps where it will move to current day if task isn’t complete which will continue my repeat task and I’m not having to go back to click off each thing I didn’t do from past days before it will show up in current to do’s. Also I make a list for groceries, though it will cross the grocery products off when I click them I have seen other apps that you have the option to see it crossed off or completely removed from the list. I like seeing the things removed and this app doesn’t have that feature. Over all I will use the app but I still have to use other apps with this one. I would like a “one app does all” so I can delete other apps
Serves its purpose
by Dang Hazelnut on 2019/02/11 23:18
My husband and I have been looking for an app that accommodates to our meal-planning. This one is by far the best due to a simple user interface, convenient checklist, uncomplicated tools, and online account integration. Although what we use is very different than what this app is intended for, it’s exactly what we need. We are removing one star because we find it difficult to retype all the entries for other lists. Having a copy-and-paste feature would be wonderful. Another feature we would like to see is an option to set which page is defaulted when opening the app. Right now, it’s “My Day” and we would like to be able to see the entire list page when we open the app. Lastly, we would love to see an expanded collection of colors and themes. Heck, I would love for it to be completely customizable where we can select photos from our camera roll. Looking forward to what the future updates this app has to offer!
Almost five stars...
by •CiCi• on 2020/06/08 18:45
This app is really nice for lots of reasons. One of these is, it's completely free! Which is super nice because I tried to find other planner apps however you HAD to get premium on all of them which made me really upset. Also, with this app, you can create a custom repeat unlike other apps where you can only repeat daily or weekly etc. I also really enjoy how organized it is. It's great for multiple things like, goal tracking, to do, school work, and much more! I didn't give it five stars because, 1. I was really hoping that I would be able to make the tasks diffrent colors or diffrent fonts not that this is totally important but I think it would make it more enjoyable for me. And 2. When you get into the app you have to long into your Microsoft account. Which isn't a big deal however, I did not have one before so it was a very long process to create one. 3. You cant use your personal photos as the theme background.
Nice but feels unfinished (unlike Wunderlist)
by jpgeorge on 2020/03/28 23:22
TLDR: I think I can’t appreciate this app because I basically want it to be Wunderlist - and it’s not. Details: I’m another old Wunderlist user (since 2014) and I was forced to find a new app since Wunderlist is getting the real boot this year. I liked To do at first, but I’ve slowly grown to dislike it. It is not a smooth, solid app like Wunderlist. It glitches often - especially on the Mac. I couldn’t get used it’s “My Day” philosophy: having to pick tasks every day even though I’d set tasks for that day in the past. Just feels like an extra step, and I couldn’t quite get how it’s supposed to work with my tasks for which I’d set scheduled due dates. It has a “planned” view but it just doesn’t feel righ. And I cannot understand why they don’t have comments like Wunderlist did - that was very useful for track progress on tasks. So I’m going to have to find something else unfortunately. I really wanted to like this app, but it just doesn’t fill in the space left by Wunderlist.
UI is phenomenal - but a couple huge complaints
by millerrh on 2019/09/11 03:26
This redesign is nearly perfect. I love the design so much more than Wunderlist. But it is missing a few key features that make it hard to use for me. 1) There are no notification bubbles that appear when a task is overdue like on Wunderlist. I used this feature all the time for recurring tasks that I want out of my way but to be reminded of when it is time to do them. These overdue tasks should be automatically populated in My Day and you should be notified of them. Or at least have the option to. 2) When viewing tasks in My Day or Important, they are all lumped together. If you have multiple projects, it can get disorienting. I prefer the way Wunderlist did it where you can see tasks grouped by the project/list they came from. Helps to organize these lists that pull from multiple projects better.
Half-Baked
by Grogboshi on 2018/03/08 02:16
This app and its web counterpart need a lot more work. It would be great if they combined it with Outlook Tasks and Planner into a single task management system, akin to Todoist. The app needs natural language support, a desktop Mac client, tie-ins with Teams to create tasks and projects directly from Teams, and tasks dated for today need to be automatically added to My Day so everything due in a given day is all in one place, rather than looking from list to list. It would also be great if it had a general Inbox to add tasks to as they come to mind and then organize later, like GTD prescribes. List sharing would be another big boost, especially for businesses if it’s linked to Teams, so that projects could be organized through ToDo and tasks managed. Apps like TickTick or Todoist show how powerful task management systems can also be easy to use and good for both individuals and businesses. Hopefully this app will follow in their footsteps and replace the myriad Microsoft task and project management options that currently exist (Outlook Tasks, Planner, To-Do), like Microsoft is doing consolidating Lync, Skype, and Teams.
Steps are headed in the right direction but…
by middlenameray on 2018/04/13 20:26
With the addition of steps/subtasks, we’re definitely getting closer to this app replicating the full functionality Wunderlist (need folders and shared notes support to make it complete). But there’s a weird glitch in the app and the steps keep disappearing/reappearing. Sometimes they show, sometimes they don’t. The first time I reopened the app after creating some steps on one of my to-dos I thought they didn’t take, so I added them again, then they vanished again on another reload, so I added them again. Turns out, when I opened the To-Do web client, the original steps I added and ALL the duplicate entries saved to the cloud like they were supposed to but don’t always populate on screen on the phone. What a productivity nightmare. Add a new step? They all appear again. Rearrange the to-dos? Disappear. If this bug can be squashed I’ll give the app a fourth star. I’ll be screenshotting any to-dos with steps in the meantime so I can be sure I can reference them when I’m on the go.
You just broke it! You changed the basic functionality from REPETITIVE list to ONE-OFF
by GrooverKing on 2020/05/05 13:49
The latest up(down?)date removed the ability to SHOW ALL items together and SORT the list while selecting items. This capability was a huge improvement over Wunderlist and was the only reason we switched. We use To Do for groceries. The list is over a hundred items because we buy the same stuff again and again. Using the completed list, we just find and uncheck what we are out of instead of tediously typing it in each time. Before this update, ‘Show Completed’ items mixed the two lists, in alpha order and we could quickly find items to add, stuff we forgot but need, and stuff added twice! The latest update ruined that functionality, and now it takes longer to make a list than just sending a text. The ‘Completed’ list is now randomly arranged, and can’t be sorted. Please restore the combined sort capability as an option for users who need a shareable list of REPETITIVE items, like grocery lists or household tasks or weekly agendas or repair parts.......
Over designed
by Unparadise on 2018/06/01 16:35
I like the improvement I have seen in the past few months. I think Todo is heading the right direction. There are a few features such as assign to someone and attach photos to a note that are still missing. And it doesn’t do a good job integrating with other Microsoft services such as Outlook and Flow. But I hope these will be added along the way. One thing I strongly dislike about this app is it’s unnecessary big visual background that takes up 1/3 of the screen. Even though it goes away after scrolling its uneconomical use of limited real estate on the phone makes me hate it. A todo app should focus on what the user tries to accomplish and reduce every possible noise. I love the Things app for its simple design. It’s just so beautiful. You can feel that everything shown on the screen is intentional with a purpose. The original Wunderlist design was also really good for the same reason. Please offer the option to remove the annoying title background. I hate it! Thanks
Completed Tasks Can’t Be Sorted (UPDATED)
by JoshuaAbatie on 2020/06/03 20:20
My wife and I use To Do for our grocery list in a very efficient way: Our shopping list has 100+ items in it, all completed at any given time. When it’s time to grocery shop, we scroll through that list and unmark whatever we need in a quick and efficient revolving list.... or at least we used to be able to do that. Now, the “completed tasks” are seemingly no longer affected by the sort function. Selecting sort only impacts those items that are not completed, which completely ruins our system. Why can you no longer sort completed tasks? Update as of 6/3/20: The most recent update brings back the sort ability for completed tasks. Thank you, To Do team for listening and fixing this issue!
Missing One Critical Feature!!
by Kaspa7 on 2018/10/02 04:26
I love the simple yet pretty layout of this app, and I love that I can create different categories (work, school, personal) while having a “My Day” area that shows me ALL tasks that I need to complete that day. Beautiful! HOWEVER, any task you put a due date on does NOT automatically show up in My Day once that day arrives! So even if I put a task as “due tomorrow”, once tomorrow comes it will not show up in My Day. So basically every single morning I have to go through my various lists and add tasks manually to My Day. The whole point of having a due date for me is to “set it and forget it”. It’s too exhausting to add each task manually every day. Doesn’t it make sense that if a task is DUE TODAY that it should appear in the MY DAY folder? Drives me crazy!! I also wish it would have a badge app icon showing me how many tasks are on My Day for the day, so I can have a quick glance just from the home screen of how many tasks I still have to complete that day.
Improving, update by update
by cierrabrooke on 2018/12/01 15:41
To-Do has definitely improved from my first download a year ago, but there are still key features that keep me with Wunderlist (app/company was acquired by Microsoft and that team now works on To-Do). Pros of To-Do that have me looking forward to a move from Wunderlist: - Dropped the skeuomorphic design - Has Wunderlist import feature (some reviews say this is still a little buggy) - The font is clean and visually pleasing Features Wunderlist has that To-Do still needs: - Folders and nesting for lists: I prefer to break out different projects and responsibilities within my work list - Option for a scrolling calendar wheel, or the ability to have weeks start on Monday, not Sunday when setting task due dates. I’m fine with the “Pick a date” calendar option, but I would SO prefer the ability to have this calendar have Mondays to start weeks. I’ve been able to do this in Outlook, so I know you can add this feature 😊 - Ability to update profile photo: Currently cannot update the standard avatar - Variety of neutral backgrounds: With To-Do, the background of the “Important” list cannot be altered. For now it’s an uneditable purple space telescope theme. I tried to swap every list to be a plain neutral blue with no cartoon drawings. Some people may love the cartoons, but I need more neutral color options and just want to focus on my to dos, especially the ones I’ve noted are most important!
could be better
by Jessesaint on 2020/01/03 09:12
A lot simpler and easier to use than OneNote for task, however I'd really like the option to hide "my day". I have zero interest in using it and would much rather have the mobile and desktop app's open into my first tab/ group. Please, it's always in the way and extremely annoying. Like OneNote, both apps need a trash can/ recently deleted, it's extremely careless for the developers not to include one as I've lost a few well-written notes over this non-including of an EXTREMELY important feature. Not even an undo option, issues with shake to undo, really??? At least To Do has an "are you sure you want to delete?", but it's not enough. Also can't figure out how to delete unintentional created groups in the mobile app, only on the desktop app... Okay? All around it's better then what's out there, just a few tedious important features missing for me to give it a complete five stars. also I don't know what your problem is, but if I take my time to drag and drop something it would be great if you didn't make it JUMP BACK TO THE END.
Buggy still
by The Smitten Kitten on 2020/04/15 05:31
A great start and I’m happy so far. I used to be an avid user of Astrid and Wunderlist, and have been pretty frustrated these good apps keep getting bought by mega corporations. (Yahoo and Microsoft) For this app, there are some bugs and quirky behaviors that are frustrating. I migrated from Wunderlist and these weren’t issues before. Some example below: - The weekly recurring tasks don’t work. Just try it. If I set it for Friday, it somehow labels it as “Thu, Fri”. Is it a time zone issue? I’m in ET. - The sorting doesn’t work well. As we could in Wunderlist or even Excel, a sort order should not lock the list. We should still be able to move items around. Imagine a use case, where I want the list to be first sorted by items in the order they were created...then I want to reorder some items to appear on top. Not possible right now. We just end up having a jumbled mess. - When you inadvertently check off an item, it’s almost impossible to find it to uncheck it if you had Completed Items hidden. In Wunderlist, when a task is completed, it gets sent to the bottom and they are sorted in the order which they were completed. Now not anymore. It’s jumbled elsewhere and due to the weird sorting behavior (mentioned above), I can’t find it. - No easy way to purge completed items? This should be a setting. I had hundreds maybe thousands in some lists, and I had to manually delete each one. (I had to because I felt the app was slow.)
Can be frustrating to use
by msnellgrove on 2020/03/23 17:48
I used Wunderlist to keep running meal plans and a grocery list. I switched over to To Do when they emailed us about phasing out the app. Since using to do, I have been annoyed with the “show completed tasks” feature. It’s easy to accidentally check off an item that you haven’t completed. In Wunderlist, I could quickly figure out what I clicked by accident, because it kept the crossed off item in the same location in the list (showed it in it’s original location with the uncompleted tasks still there). In to do, if you say to show completed tasks, it pulls them up in a totally different order... like a running list of completed to do’s. There is no way for me to figure out which one I just removed from my list by mistake. My app is also freezing up when I say “hide completed tasks”. It won’t go back to my list. I have to shut the app down and reopen it. When scrolling sometimes the app thinks I’ve selected a task and moves it... I understand the desire to rearrange items, but I would rather that be a separate menu or something. I make my grocery list in an order to begin with. I don’t want that order changed because I’m scrolling. Maybe include an edit option that allows you to move items, but make items stay put unless you specifically tap the dot to check them off. Too much happens by accident!
Lovely, except for sorting options
by GybeTack on 2019/12/30 22:03
I switched to this app because my gTasks Pro app has become too slow at syncing (it syncs via Google tasks). I like the features and interface on Microsoft ToDo, and the syncing is lightning fast. A major problem, however, is the lack of flexibility in sorting. gTasks allows you to sort manually, which is highly effective. With Microsoft ToDo if I want to sort, for example, by “Importance”, and then have the tasks move to the bottom of the list when marked “Complete”, I’m out of luck. As a result, the list quickly becomes cluttered with completed tasks (if I sort by completed tasks the remaining uncompleted tasks have no sort order). I can manually drag a task anywhere I like, but it snaps back to it’s original location immediately. I’ve ended up going back to gTasks Pro for longer lists, and using this app for short lists only. It would be a 5 star app of the sorting option gets enhanced.
A simple reminders app is just what most of us need.
by e10. with a lightning port. on 2018/10/14 08:43
I started looking for a reminders app when I realized that the calendar’s “up next” widget contains reminders as well, so I deleted reminders and started looking elsewhere. Most of the reminders apps I’ve seen are either really simple, too complicated, or have complex tasks and just useless stuff locked behind a paywall. Microsoft’s ToDo is not the best app for the job, but it’s at least got the basics down, doesn’t lock it in a paywall, and doesn’t make it super complex. I would still like having location based reminders like on the Apple app, but I’ll forgive it. It still has: Reminders based on time, repeating reminders daily-weekly-monthly-yearly, notes, and color coded reminders groups. Yes, I wish it had location reminders, and that it didn’t force me to have it’s “Tasks” group, but it really is all you need. It’s basic, and that’s good.
Bleh
by B to the fourth on 2020/04/05 13:17
I was a Wunderlist user and I used it for very simple things - groceries, personal to-do’s, etc. Light, simple use. Loved Wunderlist. I’ve experienced Issues with this app that seem very basic to me, though. For example: - Synching is buggy. I share several lists with my wife and somehow we end up with lists that aren’t exactly the same sometimes. Just got home from the grocery store, wife’s list has hamburger buns, mine didn’t. Watched as we synched again and still not on my list. Of course additional trips to the grocery store are now not so routine. - when I toggle the app to show items crossed off a list, that works. When I toggle back to not showing them it freezes. Every. Single. Time. - it won’t let me move something to the very bottom of the list. Have to move it to second to last, then move the last item up one. - seems very easy to inadvertently cross something off when scrolling compared to Wunderlist. - the nesting feature seems nice in concept, but it’s very easy to accidentally nest something under another to-do item when moving things around on an iPhone, and for the life of me I can’t figure out how to un-nest it. So, stuck with deleting it and adding it again. I would expect some bugs from a fairly new app but seems like Microsoft should be able to do better than the average little app builder. So, we’re gonna use Wunderlist until we can’t then find something else.
Perfect for me
by RevRMK on 2019/07/12 13:47
I am one of those people who keep trying different organizational apps and systems. I’ve found this one best meets my needs for on that is not cluttered and great for the day to day lists I make. I love creating a project list of tasks, giving the a date or making a more detailed sub-list, giving it a date or not. The best part is starting each My Day with a clean slate and adding the tasks with recommendations from the app. I love I can set up my day before I leave for work from my iPad then check off the list as I go from the desktop at work. The only thing I would add, or haven’t discovered how to do, is to archive my completed list for future use, especially for an annual work event. I don’t like the look of the long list of completed projects and don’t want to delete them.
I’ve been searching and I found this
by leonard_ong on 2019/03/06 11:23
I used to use OmniFocus, but the interface overwhelmed me. So many buttons and options just to create a task! As a result, I set out searching for a replacement. I’ve tried Wunderlist, iOS reminders, Todoist and a plethora of other apps, but so far To-Do has been the only one with a simple and elegant interface. Everything is incredibly straightforward and there’s even a platform to vote on new features. It’s comforting to know that our voices are being heard on new features. That being said, the app isn’t perfect either. One of my biggest pet peeves is that I can’t plan My Day in advance. It would be good if I could swipe left and right to review yesterday’s and tomorrow’s tasks respectively. Other than that, this app is the best I’ve seen so far. keep it up Microsoft.
Repeating Tasks Repeatedly Disappear
by quantumofsolace on 2019/02/12 19:06
In the couple of months I've used the app, I've had to re-enter repeating tasks several (3-4) times. It seems to only affect daily tasks but I'm not 100 on that. At some point after I complete a repeating task, the app doesn't repopulate the task for the next iteration. So if I have a task that says "go to the gym" and I check it as completed, sometimes the task shows up the next day and sometimes it doesn't. I don't know exactly when this happens because it's hard to notice a single missing task. (At least for me –i have about 25 repeating tasks.) I assume there's a bug somewhere but it shouldn't take two months for a major corporation to fix it, especially since this is basic functionality for a task app. I should have known the app would be extra when I had to reimport my tasks from Wunderlist 3 times. That process should have been infinitely easier since Microsoft develops both Wunderlist and To Do. I had intended to transition to To Do but I think I'll stick with Wunderlist for the moment.
Same as Wunderlist
by AskLifeCoach on 2020/05/16 19:05
I was a HUGE Wunderlist fan for years. It was my most useful app. I deleted the stock lists and made my own lists. It’s for more than shopping and TODO lists. I use it for lots of “HOW to do lists”. Meaning lists I follow to close up the cabin in the fall and other lists to open it in the spring. There is no limit to the type or purpose of lists you can create to make your life easier. The big benefit is the ability to check mark ✅ an item to add to a list and check mark ✅ it when it’s finished. This means a list only needs to be typed in one time. I was devastated when I was told Wunderlist was going away, replaced by this app. Ultimately only the name and colors have changed. This is every bit as good as Wunderlist and honestly, it’s even a bit better.
Off to a great start, but needs maturing.
by TheRamius on 2019/07/10 18:26
Pros: - User friendly for what it offers - Fluid, simple interface. Isn’t confusing to know what you’re doing. - Easy to prioritize tasks - Each task can be broken up into items (very useful for projects and/purchasing) Cons - Minimal navigation ability on completed tasks. Only way to navigate completed tasks is by opening up a list where it’s all dumped into. It may be in chronological order, but it’s difficult to know for sure. This leads me to my second issue... - Completed tasks don’t have a date of completion listed next to it unless you click on the individual task. So if you want to know what you completed in a particular week a couple months ago, you have to keep clicking on items until you find the date of interest. It isn’t clear however in what order the completed tasks are arranged. - As of today there is a bug which keeps you from deleting a repeated task in bulk. I accidentally set a reminder for the next 20 years and it generated tasks for every day for the next 20 years. I couldn’t delete them or remove them from my completed tasks list. I’m sure this would be a relatively simple fix. - If you don’t click something as completed the day it was completed, you cannot go back and edit. It only shows the date you clicked completed.
Finding another to do app today
by gillette411 on 2020/03/22 22:31
I also moved to this app from Wunderlist, unfortunately. This app doesn’t do anything the same way. I’m a simple person and really only use it for my grocery list, not all the reminders and scheduling that others talk about. But this app can’t even get a grocery list right. I buy many of the same things week after week, month after month. So when you check an item off, it doesn’t move to the bottom automatically to get it out of the way. And when you uncheck an item, it doesn’t move back to the top automatically. You can move it manually if you don’t have any kind of filter on, but that can be a lot of items to move. And you can’t manually move items up and down if any filters are on. Starring an item only puts it in another list altogether rather than moving it to the top of the current list as a priority. I will be downloading a different to do list app today. This was a horrible recommendation from Wunderlist.
Simple and Beautiful
by Smanhan on 2020/09/05 16:53
I’ve tried some of the top rated to-do apps, and they all don’t fit my purpose even though they offer much more functions. This app is neat, beautiful and totally what I am looking for as it’s easy to use, great everyday to-do checklist function as well as notes that I can add within the task without paying extras like some of the top apps. I also love the reminder notification, sorting function and themes which is sleek, fun and easy to add tasks. There may be hiccups in the older versions which I read, but these may have already been fixed for the newer version, so far I haven’t encountered any issues. Synchronization is a breeze between my MacBook and iPhone - almost instant actually ! Overall, it’s a 9/10 for me! Thank you creator!
Extremely Disappointed with the Sorting Features
by Chris528F on 2020/03/19 01:00
I would give this app 5 stars if only after sorting by importance, I could then sort the list more finely by moving the important items in the order I want them. I could do this with Wunderlist, but I can’t do it with Microsoft To Do. I really don’t understand why it is so hard for the Microsoft team to make this change. I use the list for groceries and I have a over 200 items. By starring the items I want, it moves them to the top of the list. But then they are all a jumble. Thus if I have 20 items on my grocery list, I constantly have to be scanning the list and I find myself walking back and forth around the store because the list is not in order. If I were able to sort the grocery items I want to buy, by aisle, after sorting them by importance, it would make the shopping process so much easier and more efficient. I am pleading with you Microsoft, to make this change.
A Pinch From the Finish Line
by icuragoose on 2018/01/06 21:39
(There is now iPad support!) I have loved Wunderlist, and Microsoft aims to replace it. The features in To Do are remarkably similar and familiar to Wunderlist users with simplicity and minimalism at its core. With a slimmed-down UI, there's less to distract you and with the flawlessly smooth and responsive controls, you feel like you have a firm grasp on your system. Everything is intuitive and inviting. In addition, I'm from Seattle, so I appreciate the themes. Right now the only things missing for my own workflow is the ability to have folders and sublists. This is my last reservation for using this app and once this is complete (both are planned), I can officially utilize this as a Wunderlist replacement. Once I use this in my workflow, I will be most excited about the "My Day" feature. I can use that in tandem with my office' implementation of Kanban to help me see what I committed to getting done today. I can see this being useful for O365 organizations as well, since it can replace the Outlook tasks, pull assigned tasks from Planner, have inputs with Teams (i.e. Right click a message and select "Create Task") I'm excited to see where this goes as I wait patiently for the product to bake. Until then, three stars is about where it's at as of now--little more than a college student's obligatory first app.
Start good-End BAD!
by Lennsg on 2020/05/12 00:08
Leave it to Microsoft to destroy something by improving on it. Microsoft bought out Winderlist to create this “to-do” list. -Not Microsoft’s Creation- At first it was somewhat better than the original Wunderlist. But then someone at Microsoft decided to tweak it. The improvement Microsoft made was to list completed items alphabetically. This was great when creating a reusable grocery list. It was easy to look up items needed to shop for. Now all items in the completed column are jumbled. You now have to carefully scroll through your entire list to find the items needed for next weeks shopping list. And when you have to add an item sometimes every day or so, this becomes a pain in the pattuty. If you know what I mean. THANKS MICROSOFT!!!
The most important app on my phone
by StephenCausey on 2020/01/28 00:14
I picked up this app on my iPhone and Mac, hoping I could work it into my routine at work and solve some of my team’s productivity and communication issues. To Do quickly became the lifeline of my business in exactly the way I had hoped, by organizing all of our messy actions and projects across multiple lists shared among various team members. In addition to typical tools in the toolbox, such as “Reminder,” “Due Date,” “Steps” and others, the addition of “My Day” and “Assign To” are unique to me tools I use every single day. To Do is incredibly simple to use and understand. In addition to work, I’ve been using it as well for my personal life, and other professional projects and volunteer work. Doing this has only strengthened my commitment to it, while my past experience with to do apps was almost always short-lived. Few other apps, if any, bring a simplified, high level of organization and teamwork to productivity as this one does- at a cost of nothing. I’m looking forward to updates with new features and further integration with Outlook and other Microsoft tools, but right now, this is already the best and most important app I use, hands down!
A few suggestions
by beanbeanjuice on 2020/02/12 17:02
I’ve recently been forced to switch over from Wunderlist (been using it for over a year) to Microsoft To Do. I have a few suggestions since this was forced by you guys. Please add the option to swipe down on a list to sync it rather than needing to go into my account and clicking sync (similar to how on Snapchat you swipe down to refresh). Secondly, for the Mac app, please make a widget for it, so I don’t need to open the app but instead can leave it at the top right of my screen in an icon I can press at any time to access the app. Again for the Mac, add the ability to swipe down to refresh/sync the list. Otherwise, the app looks much cleaner and is easier to use (not including what I just mentioned) and am very much looking forward to hopefully these suggestions being added.
Keepin’ it 100
by hellerpopstar16 on 2020/04/30 16:41
I’ve been using Wunderlist app for 2 years or more for free. At first I had a tough time re-organizing and figuring out how to use the app. It only took me 5 min to create my own goals, routines, and any list of things I want. Wunderlist app emerged with Microsoft To Do, and I was not excited about the news. I was afraid all my things to do list, goals and whatever I created for years will be gone then I’ll have to re-start all over again. I wasn’t looking forward to that. I downloaded Microsoft To Do and it asked me for my log in account. After I logged in my account it asked me to synchronize my Wunderlist to Microsoft To Do and I was super happy! I just can’t believe it! It transferred everything exactly alike from my Wunderlist app. Microsoft To Do is exactly like Wunderlist app with added custom colors and backgrounds. I really like different backgrounds plus the colorful fonts. Microsoft To Do made my tedious list to fun and customizable to whatever I want it. Thank you Wunderlist for continuous improvement, and making my life simple with this app also for making the app for free! I don’t give out 5 stars rating but this app is valuable to me, and my every day go to app.
Not ready for prime time, far from it
by No ads preferred on 2019/04/10 14:10
The primary fault I have with this app is the lack of ability to schedule tasks. It allows you to assign a due date and will let you set a reminder, but true scheduling of a task is wholly missing. What I mean is that I want to be able that a task is due to be complete by a certain time on a certain date. And then the list of tasks is presented in that order. Here’s what I need to do first today, then what I need to do next, etc. items with a due date but no required due time would be at the end of the list for that day. The reminder field in the app would be used more for telling me when to start a task. A secondary fault is a more robust prioritization. More than just a star or not star rating, it needs to let me say that a task has a high, medium, or low priority. That way, if I have to let a task slip, I’ll know which one. The “Errands” app does this well. I don’t use it because I need a to-do app that will work both on my iPhone and my PC. Next, categorization would be very nice. Thus, I can assign a task to a “Field” category or an “Office” category, depending on where it needs to be done. Then I could filter on the “Field” tasks when I head out the door. This should be a free-form data field so I can make up my own list of categories. But it should be such that I can see all tasks if I want to, not just one category. Finally, integration with Outlook on my PC would be great.
Doesn’t hold a candle to Wunderlist
by snc68 on 2019/03/10 15:26
I have been a happy user of Wunderlist for the last couple of years. It’s an exceptional app for organizing your to do list. There was another reviewer that hit the nail on the head with this. The biggest flaw with this To-Do app is that you cannot organize and categorize your tasks in a given day. Why have smart list if your app won’t organize them by smart list? It doesn’t make sense. In the Wunderlist app you enter tasks, you categorize them and then for any given day all the things that you need to do for the day are grouped in the different categories. it’s a simple concept and shouldn’t be too difficult to enable. For example if you go to the grocery store, you don’t go in with a list that has everything all mixed up on one long list. In order to be efficient, you typically will group things by area in the store. You’ll put all of your vegetables together all of your dairy etc. That way you’re not running around the store in a disorganized fashion and missing things on your list. Same thing with managing your daily tasks. It takes way too many brain cells to try to jumble everything up. They need to be categorized so that your brain doesn’t have to do too much work. Very disappointed in this app and I hope Wunderlist stays around in the ether for a while so I can continue to use it. Will have to find something else because To-Do does not cut it.
VERY Disappointing
by Neal William on 2019/09/26 20:05
I’d consider the MS To-Do programming team second worst to the failed Evernote developers (who made a pretty but ruined product). They don’t take the time to understand what users really want, but do things that are “technically right” but practically idiotic. Most recently they reduced the size of a list header. Why??Users complained about it. Why? Because it used limited phone screen space that could be used to show more tasks. So what did the developers do? They added a huge Add Task input box at the bottom of EVERY list, which takes up even more space than the previous header! Furthermore, the tacky Add Task box doesn’t scroll. It just stays at the bottom taking up room! I wanted to like MS To-Do. It’s got a clean interface and is readable. But “you can’t fix stupid”. I consider interface problems caused by poor programming the worst kind of stupid. They reveal the (lack of) capability of the software development team. Accordingly, I’ve moved my tasks and dumped MS To-Do. For those considering MS To-Do, another stupidity is that you cannot set your tasks for “My Day” the evening before. If you want to do that and start your day with ACTION, deciding what to do the day before, save yourself and use another app. Don’t let MS tell you how you should work. MS purchased Wunderlist as the source for MS To-Do. From what I read Wunderlist was abc A+ 5* app. Looks like MS purchased it to ruin it. I “wunder” how long it will survive

Love the to do list and the ability to go from my Mac to my phone. Great task management app but we need an Apple Watch feature, also would love the ability to have my To Do list as a widget on my Home Screen.

Works better than any.do for many reasons. Not only that but it works with outlook which is essential for me.
Bad overall user experience
by OliveFromJersey on 2020/10/25 17:51
I wish I could like this app but the overall user experience is just terrible. It doesn’t seem like Microsoft cares one bit about optimizing it for iOS. At the very least, include an undo button if the slightest little finger gesture is going to delete a task or mark something as complete or classify something as a sub task. The amount of frustration that this app generates is like none other.
Used to Be Great - Now Slow & Buggy w/ Tasks Disappearing
by Former Nextel User on 2020/10/25 15:47
What happened? It seems once I updated to the latest iOS the app got extremely slow to the point I need to force quit multiple times during usage. It's also slow to sync with my desktop version. With the latest update, tasks are mysteriously disappearing on the app but seem to be available later or on the desktop version. Please fix these problems, you "had" a great app!
Needs widget and Apple Watch

Please make it possible to add widgets and to Apple Watch
Security not necessary;
by RetitrdTeacher8yrs on 2020/10/24 19:14
This sudden need for us to type in our password is totally not necessary but only should be an option. There is nothing on our to do lists that needs to be secure information. Most of our use is when we are out on the road and it is most annoying to be remembering our stupid passwords.
Great but wishing for three features
by Onur the Doc on 2020/10/24 19:09
1) The option to customize quick reminders like in Wunderlist 2) The ability to set reminders for individual subtasks 3) A widget!
Best app
by reinereviews on 2020/10/24 08:07
No ads, no payments, no BS. It just works. Syncs across all your devices, no headaches. Can’t be better than that. The kind of app that kind of just blends in, you never really think about it. That’s how you know it’s a good app.
Subpar experience
by Jackson Fivestars on 2020/10/24 06:08
Syncing is touch and go, can't complete tasks from iOS lock screen, syncing in background doesn't work at all. Wunderlist was simple and did the basic functions well, and I was hoping Microsoft would build on the product, not make it worse. I hope background syncing will work soon, maybe even add back in the ability to do natural language due dates at task input time... Still, if there's a better cross platform to do app, I haven't found it. Wunderlist was the gold standard.
Not good when swiping.
by Sylvvi on 2020/10/24 04:53
The concept is great and I use it to keep my bills in order. However, for something so important to keep track of it’s not a good app. You shouldn’t be able to just swipe and accidentally make stuff become marked complete. It happens so quickly and then all of a sudden you are stuck figuring out what’s missing. All I do is swipe down the list and things go flying off the screen. Very annoying.
Bugs iPhone
by GP's iPhone on 2020/10/23 18:27
Still having problems using it on my iPhone, will wait next version.
Almost there
by CubsWS2016 on 2020/10/23 12:17
Needs Apple Watch support and ios14 widget.
Great product. One suggestion
by d.w.645 on 2020/10/23 00:01
The only issue I have had is that it’s quite easy to mark tasks “completed” if you scroll through the list using your left thumb. Could be avoided if the app changes the way things are marked completed. For example, maybe a swipe is more error proof.
Perfect app but NEEDS APPLE WATCH APP
by Dani12000 on 2020/10/22 20:39
This is my favorite to-do app. It's extremely organized, with different categories & ways to organize them. So much functionality. I recently got an Apple Watch and have tried other to-do apps but this is my favorite. It's absolutely needed in the Apple Watch App Store. Even if it didn't offer all the functions, it would still be extremely useful. Many other users would agree & many people would also prefer this app over the other to-do apps offered on the watch.
Perfect!
by MomOWar on 2020/10/22 15:16
Thank you for letting the checked stuff be alphabetized! Now it’s perfect for reoccurring groceries. 👍
Missing tasks
by JPM4189 on 2020/10/22 13:14
I am very frustrated. I have daily “to dos” that just DISAPPEAR!! I have gotten used to this App since being “pushed” here from Wunderlist. This problem is causing me to look at other to do list App.
Perfectly simple
by Cookiesqsh on 2020/10/21 19:01
Literally exactly what I was looking for. Simple and can be edited to your preference. It’s actually motivating me to do things. Onlyyyyyyy thing is I really wish they had a widget!
App keeps crashing even after reinstall and recent update.

Good app - iOS 14 widget please!
by nyted on 2020/10/20 21:06
Good to do list. Needs widget.

Please add widget for iOS 14
Trash
by kris88suteru on 2020/10/20 20:33
Non-existant customer service means it took entirely too long to fully transfer my lists into this app. Every time I open the app the wrong email is in the login. I’ve been locked out multiple times and Microsoft gives my phone number an error message so I can’t get a code to reset it either. Now I’m finally back in the app and it won’t let me open any lists. It just keeps creating a new list. I don’t need a new list! I need to review the old lists! I’m incredibly frustrated and if I had to do it again I’d never have touched this app.
Disappointing
by StonefordMama on 2020/10/20 02:47
I am having difficulty syncing this app from my PC to my iPhone 6 and haven’t been able to find out how to correct this.
Auto remove feature
by Aya12s on 2020/10/20 00:50
I think this app truly need auto remove feature.
Excelente
by Pastor Alberto on 2020/10/19 14:49
Muy versátil y si lo instalas en todos los equipos se actualiza
Love this app!
by Hbow on 2020/10/18 17:09
I use this app for a lot of different things! I have my grocery list, a list for recurring bills, inventory lists, and even long kept lists for packing for specific trips! It’s easy to set up recurring bills that auto update themselves in order. For my packing lists, you can hide items as you’ve packed them for a trip, and then you can uncheck and repopulate your list for the next trip (or to double check if you’re like me.)
Cross platform?
by SKF 54 on 2020/10/18 11:51
Love the app. Would love it more if you could access from multiple devices.
Absolute CRAP
by Mix337 on 2020/10/18 07:48
Will not open on either my iPhone or iPad. Have no idea if a delete/reinstall will retain the extensive info I’ve input and have trusted this app to maintain. This app is the worst TO DO list I’ve ever used.d
Flagged email bug
by KingRorako on 2020/10/18 02:58
What I love about to do is that when I flag an email it adds the email to the app with a link do the message. The Outlook app breaks when doing this though.
10x worse than Wunderkist

Microsoft f’s it up again!
Better than Wunderlist
by Seattleguy100 on 2020/10/17 14:20
When I first started using to do about eight months ago I thought it wasn’t as good as wonder list. However Microsoft keep name keeps making changes and now I think it is actually quite a bit better than wonder list.I especially like the “My Day” feature. It helps me get organized every morning.
No longer syncs
by Ano-nym-ous on 2020/10/17 13:56
After I reset my phone, ToDo no longer syncs with my Outlook.com. It thinks that it does and reports successful synchronization yet I have over 80 tasks on the web and only 5 on the phone. Worse, this also now happens with my iPad app, leading me to think that something got broken on the server side. The fun part ? All of the tasks sync just fine with Reminders. That’s right, MS’ own service works more reliably with Apple Reminders than its own apps. Of course I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, deleting and readding account, rebooting, copying the tasks out and back in... and the icing on the cake was MS Tech support, who responded by giving me a link to setting up synchronization on iOS. Yeah, genius, my established sync doesn’t work, how do you read it to mean that I need instructions on how to set it up the first time ? Typical MS. So, back to the Goodtask / Reminders I go.
The best
by Arswipe on 2020/10/16 21:29
This is the best organizational tool ever! I use it in all our businesses and for personal items.
Helps get more accomplished!
by Mommiebeth on 2020/10/16 15:20
I have trouble with staying focused and this app helps me get more done! It also builds my confidence because I can see how many activities and chores I have completed. I am so thankful for this app. I have tried others, but this seems to be easy to use and visually appealing.
Problems for months
by Mryoungcom on 2020/10/16 11:55
I want to like this app. I’ve used it for 9 months or so because it’s simple and it’s Microsoft so I hold out hope that the issues will be fixed. But they haven’t been. Basically, until the newest upgrade to iOS 14 I’ve had to check off items twice for them to move on to the next recurrence. That’s annoying and can easily be confusing when they pop up again and you have to remember if you did it or not already. Now, that issue is mostly resolved, but recurrence settings are screwed up. Items that are supposed to go to the next day just end and I have to manually go in and fix them. I’m going to find another to do app with working recurrence features. The experiment with this one is over.
Slow connection, missing tasks
by Anon7890 on 2020/10/15 23:35
Seems to be getting worse with updates. It’s very slow to connect and take input when editing or marking a task as done. There are also tasks that just disappear but will show up again later.

Update: Latest version unusable on iOS and iPadOS 14+
by Hoosierzimbob on 2020/10/14 21:58
*** UPDATE: the crash upon login is back on both IOS and iPadOS 14+. App back to being unusable. I’m considering re-firing my subscription to Todoist. *** UPDATE with version 2.28: login issue described below has been FIXED. App crashes upon start on both iOS and iPadOS 14.0.1. My app is managed by my employer - that may be a problem with login. But, the app is currently not useable. Please fix.
Simply a great app
by Quazi M.Ahmed on 2020/10/14 16:06
I love this app and it has made my life easier and better. I can’t think of any other app that could do so much... the best part? It’s free...I mean I have done all my work within the limits of the free version. Kudos!
Spacing and now Crashes constantly
by Machodan on 2020/10/14 15:17
I was a fan of wunderlist. I dealt with the integration to Microsoft Tasks (To Do). The past month, something must have changed. Many lines would appear with tasks notes. Now, the App it won’t even open on my iPhone or iPad. Is this a Microsoft vs Apple issue?
App will no longer start
by pedroa81 on 2020/10/13 23:01
The last update has made this app crash every time it starts. Very frustrating.
Poor substitute for Wunderlist
by Reddy Kilowatt on 2020/10/12 23:06
When I complete a task, why does my Windows 10 app still interrupt my work to complete that task, days later? No Google calendar integration... Just another example of a giant company buying something cool and ruining it.
Issue with Additional lines is now fixed
by Gsgsgsgsv on 2020/10/12 17:59
For the last few weeks, Every time I add/edit notes to a task, the app is introducing so many additional empty lines. It’s now fixed.
Very great
by Nyaz_jamel on 2020/10/12 17:19
I gave 5 star for this application
Not quite the same as Wunderlist, but it will do
by Liast on 2020/10/12 16:44
Many options are the same as Wunderlist, but I wish there was a capability to move items to a different place, both within a list and to a different list
Buggy, something went south recently

Most used / favorite app
by .nick.name. on 2020/10/12 01:35
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Great app! We use this for our small business and much prefer it to Wunderlist. Any chance we can have widgets and/or watch complications added? That’d make this app perfect! Thanks!
Just a list
by F4b14nc1t0 on 2020/10/12 00:50
This is an app to write a list. You can keep a list with any app: a word processor, even a spreadsheet is able to keep a list.
Great App But Missing Authentication Protection
by virgatepower27 on 2020/10/11 23:11
It is a great app! But can you add in the feature of authentication asking for fingerprint or PIN when open the app? I believe that others people who has access to my iPad don’t need to see my ToDo list.
Spacing bug!!!!!
by MPI44 on 2020/10/11 21:48
Long time Wunderlist user & loved the app before. I have tolerated the MS changes, but now it creates spacing gaps (never had issue w/Wunderlist) every time I add anything to “Add Note” it creates spaces, rendering it useless as a productivity tool.
Good, but missing real multi account support
by bpoe138 on 2020/10/11 20:54
I like the app, it has good feature and it’s very usable. It’s main drawback that keeps me switching back to Apple Reminders is its very poor multi-account support. It claims to support a work and home account, but you can’t see tasks from each at the same time, you have to manually switch accounts. It also lacks support for iCloud accounts.
Labels and widget
by Hosseinm7 on 2020/10/11 19:46
Please add labels for tasks and widget in the Home Screen.
Spaces spaces
by kapaoke on 2020/10/11 14:32
All of sudden I started to get spaces between lines. Looks like I am not alone. Never had issues from with Wunderlist app .
Terrable Experience
by M Bahareth on 2020/10/11 13:38
First of all i was forced to move to this app from wunderlist app and forced to use my Microsoft login. I migrated everything from thevapp but the experience is not the same not the feeling. I jave stopped using this app specially that Microsoft has abdoned it and stopped making new functionality and features like then it was wunderlist. I moved to another app and this app is just for remembering the old tims. You can find reminders in IOS 14 or Trello or any other app, at least they care about thier apps unlike Microsoft.
Not a reliable reminders app
by Nikitawillis on 2020/10/11 12:00
Good for organizing to do lists. Very poor as a reminders app. Constantly miss reminders at very specific times. Today it notified me 14 minutes after the pre-set time (this is also a repeating weekly reminder). This happens randomly but all too often, so I finally had enough and deleted the app and changed to the Alarmed app which has never failed my wife. Wunderlist was good. Too bad Microsoft ruined it.
Worthless
by JRay88 on 2020/10/10 21:02
I would give zero stars if I could. I used to love Wunderlist, it made coordinating shopping/packing/to do lists with my easy and fast. Lists updated between users and stayed in sync. Ever since wunderlist was phased out and Microsoft To Do has replaced it we have had nothing but issues. Inviting people to lists sometimes works, even if they accept the invite the app might not add them to the list. On shared lists, the app doesn't stay updated. Even if I force it to sync, my lists won’t stay updated. This makes shopping very difficult if my wife adds an item, but I miss it because my list hasn’t synced. Even when I check items off, they don’t remove from other peoples lists. I’ve tried logging out and back in, deleting and reinstalling the app. Nothing has helped.
To do

Es un muy buen programa
Widget???
by jazzclubokc on 2020/10/10 19:22
Will you ever add a widget? It would be helpful and more efficient if users could quickly see and check off tasks for the day without having to open the app. If would be even more beneficial and functional to have this ability now since the widget can be placed on the Home Screen.
Please fix bug!!
by Emilshdueys on 2020/10/10 16:56
App is mostly good, but there’s a bug, and one suggestion that’ll make it better. Bug: when I add notes to a task, the code seems to be replacing a new line with 2 new lines every time I view the note. every time I view the note, the spaces between lines doubles, which is frustrating, especially for long notes that become difficult to read. New: this feature existed in Wunderlist and I was disappointed when it was removed. I need to be able to sort by priority, but then within the priority I also want to order the tasks, so in wunderlist I used to drag the individual task items even after they were sorted. I can’t do that anymore in ms to do :( 5 stars if not for these issues.
The space will be created automatically

No app badge notification
by U8us28shw8shhsw on 2020/10/09 01:09
Have no idea how many tasks are outstanding due to no app badge notification, this maybe only for iOS devices but come on. Should be very simple to implement, please update. I do like the UI and customizable options.
Really Good
by thr_rtaylor on 2020/10/08 22:14
Simple, clean design. Integrated with all my Microsoft “work” apps and programs. Only one complaint - I wish that items would roll over from My Day that I don’t complete to the next day. Or am I missing a setting?
Latest update ruins app
by selinson on 2020/10/08 16:04
This used to be my favorite app but after that last update it has become very annoying. Every time I add notes to a task, after I close it it adds an extra paragraph space to all existing paragraphs. This happens each time you open the task so after opening a task three time, all paragraphs are triple spaced. Please fix this bug. There are dozens of complaints about it on the Microsoft website.
No widget
by readingthings on 2020/10/08 06:29
This would be my all time favorite app if I could add it to the side menu on my phone. It’s really handy for me to see what’s on my list for the day right there so unfortunately a deal breaker for me. I will definitely be keeping my eye on this app though just in case they add a widget soon!
Adding extra line!
by xb7689 on 2020/10/08 01:30
Keep adding extra lines when I save a note. It has been couple weeks
add smart stacks for it
by simon well on 2020/10/07 21:45
This is such a powerful app between any other reminder apps that I’ve seen, thanks to developers and support team of course 🙂 today at iOS 14 there is a empty space in smart stacks for this app and it will be so helpful that you add smart stacks for upcoming events 🙏

Ruined Wunderlist
by amunchkin on 2020/10/07 15:50
Adding exponential extra spaces toook this from a poor Wunderlist substitute to unusable. Customer suppport saying to “be patient” isn’t helpful when all my to dos are destroyed.
Extra space BUG makes lists unusable
by KAH0123 on 2020/10/07 04:31
I was a former Wunderlist user and was optimistic about the To Do app as a replacement. Until recently, it had been a great list keeper. Now when editing a list, extra rows are randomly added in between the list items. Sometimes there is just one space between each line item but often there are multiple blank rows so you can’t even see your list on the screen without scrolling down, down, down.
Love it
by JaxKala on 2020/10/06 19:22
Does everything I need it to do. Like how what I write down will go to my iPad also!!

by Kate meester on 2020/10/06 17:49
I’ve been using Microsoft To-Do for a while now and have never had any issues with it. I would LOVE to see them make a widget for this to easily check off your completed tasks through your Home Screen!
Spacing issues
by Chickabrie on 2020/10/06 17:48
All of the sudden the notes within “to do” items keep adding spaces every time we close the list resulting in a near impossibility to keep information organized. Items in the notes end up miles apart. We moved to this app when Wunderlist closed and are now searching for a replacement.
Bring back Wanderlist

Ruined Wunderlist...so mad!!!
by PelhamFridayPizzaNight! on 2020/10/06 01:33
I used wunderlist for years and ran part of my business with it; quite successfully and without any issue I might add. Now, To Do consistently (daily) randomly deletes entries I’ve made. It’s a crap shoot now whether the items I’ve entered on a list will be there in 5 minutes. It’s the WORST glitch!!!! I can’t stand this app. It never works right. It takes a few minutes to load up every time I open it. I have hundreds of lists from wunderlist and never had issues there. Now I’m left looking for a different app. I LOVED wunderlist and I HATE this app!!!!!
Push Notifications Not Working
by SATXRN on 2020/10/05 23:16
My spouse and I use a shared list for groceries. We aren’t getting push notifications on our devices anymore. Not sure when the last time we did.
Still too buggy
by Investedistrict on 2020/10/05 04:40
I want to give this more stars...it’s a nice to look at todo app that gets the job done. And it does try and recreate the wunderlist experience that I loved. But it’s been months of bugs, and after giving the dev team the benefit of the doubt I have to give a bad review. Really no excuse at a company like Microsoft for this level of poor QA None of the bugs are crippling, but they are annoying, and not up to the standard set by other apps. Would list the issues but they seem to change every month
Very useful
by Flako00 on 2020/10/05 00:07
I love this app!
Had high hopes...
by BOK350 on 2020/10/04 22:01
Loved Wunderlist, relied on it for years. Was really excited when I saw Microsoft finally not only implement, but surpass the utility of Wunderlist. Then, reality set in. Lists not showing up on my different devices. Updates seem to help, then the lists and sync issues pop up again. No errors, just some lists/items seem to stop syncing. The lists are always available on the web app, but not on the iOS or windows app. Hate the cynicial trope that Microsoft buying an app or technology is the kiss of death, and was excited to see Wunderlist/todo possibly a shining exception, but no - Microsoft regards consumers as their unwitting focus groups for incubation of patent portfolios, nothing more. They’ll shutter this app once they’ve gleaned what they need from it.
Good, but buggy
by therobbiedshow on 2020/10/04 16:27
Overall, I have enjoyed using this todo app to organize my life. However, one bug in particular is causing me to reconsider using the app. That is, when you add a note to a todo item and return to it, you will notice that the app has added extra line breaks. If you remove them, they will return and, sometimes, new ones will appear.
Love the app
by Bbq111! on 2020/10/04 12:45
Tried a lot of To Do lists, this is the best so far — looks just awesome. One thing I find annoying is that there’s some kind of a bug that makes really, really hard to drag & drop any item to the very bottom of the list.
buggy...
by あみの93 on 2020/10/04 05:56
I was a user of Wunderlist and I loved it and I am using this app now instead but there are buggy once I open on my laptop windows 10. An URL link put on the “Add Note”, it gets increase to like 10 URLs, and then I deleted and modified but it happened again. Now each task that with URLs on “Add Note” gets double, meaning two URLs... and there are misconversion letters and emojis. Those bugs make me so frustrated.
No access to tasks.
by bpb3038 on 2020/10/03 22:48
Some it gives me access to tasks other times it doesn’t. I miss wunderlist
Slow and buggy
by Icedtea29 on 2020/10/03 21:52
When you have notes inside a task, let’s say you have 100 lines of sentence in single space, when you open them it magically DOUBLE SPACE or 10x the double space....fix it.
Extra spaces
by RichmondExerciser on 2020/10/03 21:17
What’s with the extra spaces in my description section? Every time I delete the extra spaces and close out the app, when I reopen they’re back. Super frustrating when I want to just read my short notes and I have to scroll so much.
Doesn’t respect sound settings
by Vinnythepue on 2020/10/03 21:00
Pressing complete on a task blows out the speaker
Not great right now
by Jennifer Ro on 2020/10/03 20:21
I have been using To Do list for a while now and came over from Wunderlist. Right now it is glitching BAD! Each time I go into it my to do list lines are separated by a line, then 2 lines, then full pages. It is so irritating! Please fix this!!!!
Had it for years
by txrancherpilot on 2020/10/03 20:21
It worked just fine until the last upgrade complicated the app and the model took away my functionality. Sent an email to support and didn’t hear anything back. If you don’t need this complicated mess just use apple reminders.
Carriage returns
by JWildcard on 2020/10/03 15:51
There has been an update recently which is causing my entries to have carriage returns between every line item when I open the list. This is become a major annoyance and could potentially ruin the functionality of this app if not fixed quickly.
Bad login user experience
by cocototo on 2020/10/03 15:34
Login on a website? It’s destroyed the app named wonderlist
Unsure how to use it

I want to lie this but have no idea how to use it. I would love for it to be scheduled and pop up on my computer screen or phone as a reminder of my to do’s but it doesn’t.
FINALLY Matches & Surpasses Wunderlist!
by LYAppleUser on 2020/06/04 16:08
This morning, the creators of “Microsoft To Do” FINALLY fixed enough of the features on this app to meet my former expectations of “Wunderlist!” “Microsoft To Do” (at first) had a lot of fun new features like colorful backgrounds for lists, and a few more sorting options, but was still missing some of the BASICS I enjoyed in “Wunderlist:” Here are my favorite two: 1) Being able to quickly recover a RECENTLY checked-off item at the TOP of the completed items, within a given list. Example: In “To Do” completed items were initially only alphabetized. I have an ongoing (reusable) grocery list including HUNDREDS of products. I even number them, by aisle, to ensure I see them “in order.” (Even if I’m in a different store, it still, at least, “categorizes” them together). But an “accidentally checked off” item, while shopping, was virtually GONE (until I got home & realized what was missing). This was fixed! Now I can just look at the TOP of the completed list. And, 2) Now I can see upcoming tasks separated out BY DAYS. In the past, anything beyond tomorrow was lumped together. Now, just like in Wunderlist, I can quickly find an upcoming day to which a task can be quickly moved/reassigned. And one of my favorite NEWER features of “To Do:” if you want certain tasks to recur/repeat in the future, say, only Mondays Wednesdays & Fridays (as opposed to once a week, or once a day) it can do this! Very cool. Keep up the great work!
Best To-Do List App I have Found
by TheZZman2000 on 2019/10/16 14:17
I would have to say that overall Microsoft To-Do is a fantastic app and definitely the best to-do list app I have used. They make it very easy for someone with an ever growing and changing list of things that need to be done to organize everything in their life. For example: I have my main tasks listed in the default list but I also have a list for each of the jobs I work, and a group with lists for all of my college classes and their assignments. And the best part is you can view everything that needs to be done today, tomorrow, next week, and later from all of those lists all on one page in the “Planned” tab. This app also works really well across multiple platforms by instantly syncing changes. I use it on my iPhone, iPad, and Windows PC. A main feature I would really love to see added for the versions on iOS and iPadOS is the ability to add Microsoft To-Do to your widgets this way you can see and check things off your list all right from your home screen. My biggest complaint is that whenever you add a task from the “Planned” tab it defaults to being due yesterday??? But overall it’s a to-do list app and I think you would have a really difficult time finding a better one out there.
Not Terrible but There’s Issues
by nyx74 on 2020/03/05 22:16
So I’m trying to wean myself off Wunderlist to the To Do app and while it’s not terrible there are issues. For one I’m not crazy about the Planned section at all. If anything it feels cluttered and unorganized. The earlier tab brings up tasks I’ve not set dates for and ironically haven’t used recently but the only way I can remove them is by marking them as complete and 100% eliminating them. So unless I want to continuously create a new shopping task rather than edit the preexisting one in my earlier tab I guess they’ll have to hang around uselessly in Planned. The other issue I have with Planned is how jumbled up the rest of the week looks when you’re trying to see what tasks are coming up. In Wunderlist your week was sectioned into days and your tasks were allotted to those days. Now the tasks are all piled together under one tab that accounts for most of the week and it just seems like unnecessary clutter. The other issues I came across was that “My Day” doesn’t auto populate which seems rather redundant and I preferred when the important tasks moved to the top of the lists. It would also be really awesome to move the tasks assigned to each day in an order of importance if that became available. I know To Do is still an app in progress but I do rely upon my planners a lot and hope it eventually becomes as successful as the beloved Wunderlist.
Game Changer
by friedlawyer on 2020/08/17 04:00
This app is extremely useful and, unlike many apps that are merely fun and interesting, this one could literally change your life or business if applied thoughtfully. It has some features built in which seem to follow suggestions from mainstream best sellers on organization such as one of my personal favorites: Getting Things Done by David Allen. I know it is based off another program which I never owned. I use the app on my iPhone, iPad and two versions on my desktop—one in a web browser and an iOS app. All four versions have similar features but actually have some extra features you gave to search for almost like a treasure hunt! The browser version allows you to copy tasks and next steps which allows you to create templates for repeated tasks. You can share lists with friends/co-workers as well to delegate next-steps. I recommend you explore the program thoroughly before spending time making detailed lists—there are a few things it cannot do, and knowing what they are helps you to organize your lists properly. I am still exploring the program but have been using it with a lot of success. Good luck. I’m sure Microsoft will continue to improve the program over time.
Works well just needs a few tweaks!
by djun13l on 2020/04/18 14:08
I used to write all my checklists on paper pads and cross things out and then throw away the papers when I was done, but this app is perfect! I can make organized categories of checklists so I can have multiple ongoing lists, and I like that items can be pinned to My Day for what I need to get done today specifically. And the checked off sound is great! My only complaints are that the UI could use some small adjustments. I like to check off items, but then after, I have to delete them. I personally don't think both are necessary but my main issue is that it takes a while to delete items! If I've completed a bunch of items then I have to spend several minutes deleting each one. Also, it's a little difficult to swipe the menu open, I frequently end up unintentionally moving the position of one list item so then they get scrambled, if I didn't accidentally combine two items and have to delete and re-add one. And of course when I want to rearrange the items, they don't want to insert to the bottom of the list either. I'm hoping these things will get fixed over time but so far I'm enjoying the app!
Needs a lot of work
by Isami87 on 2018/05/02 12:44
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!
by Jim NY on 2020/09/19 08:23
ToDo Microsoft 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!
Not bad but not good either
by Karid73 on 2020/03/23 17:38
I am also a wunderlist fan trying to make the switch. The biggest frustration I have at the moment is when I’m making my grocery list. I always sorted on wunderlist with the importance or the star icon. And then I put the list in order from my routine in the store. I weekly shop for a family of 6 and it takes me about 45 mins with my list in order including driving time. However with this new app I can sort my list by importance but then they won’t let you reorder your items manually also. So when I cancel the sort list by importance it changes it to some other way of sorting. Instead of just leaving it in it’s previous sorted order but making it so I can make manual changes it changes the sorting order. I have no idea which order since I took off any kind of sorting. It’s very frustrating. So it looks like it’s impossible to put my shopping list in order of how I go through the store to make it quicker. Without first writing my list down and then transferring it to this app. When I don’t have my list in order my shopping trip takes quite a bit longer to complete. It’s so frustrating especially with this corona virus situation and me being in the high risk category as I’m expecting. Please update the app to make it more like wunderlist!!!!!!!
Gets Cluttered Fast
by Skiskull on 2019/12/05 18:23
This is like every other notepad app out there, meaning it does nothing helpful for how people put together real life task lists. I use my iPhone’s notepad with checkboxes, and manually update tasks for everything i do. Some are daily, some are long-term. So of course a real to do list app would be able to organize that right? And allow daily tasks to reoccur and be completed daily, alongside long-term ones. Well this app, like all the others, doesn’t. You can make tasks reoccur... but they won’t show up in ‘My Day’ by default. BUT after you complete one for the day (eg. Brush teeth), it’ll just reappear randomly in the list with subtext of ‘tomorrow’, which is beyond useless, beyond unintuitive or logical, and clutters the entire list. Then the whole ‘My Day’ feature gets pretty dumb if tasks can’t autopopulate there. All in all, giving Microsoft the responsibility to make something intuitive is always bound to fail, so this is really just like every other worthless, weakly supported, temporarily-named, overlapping functionality MS product out there. Win10’s, and to a lesser extent the Office suite is fine (necessary evils really, you can’t escape Windows or Office), but don’t let that fool you into thinking ANYTHING else they ever introduce in their ecosystem is useful or useable.
Not as Good as Wunderlist - Needs Improvement
by HeatherMDP on 2020/03/09 01:21
I was a Wunderlist user for many, many years. When I upgraded to a new phone recently, I saw the notice that Wunderlist will be going away (sad face) and this will be its replacement. I was happy to be able to transfer all my lists easily to this new app. However, one of the biggest annoyances about this one is that I can’t manually rearrange my lists! It allows you to automatically arrange it by such things as alphabetically and importance (starred items). However, you can’t rearrange it further. For instance, if you have multiple items with stars, and you have the list sorted by importance, but you add a new starred item, it goes to the bottom of the starred items, and you can’t move it to the very top unless you change the entire order of all items (whether they are starred or not) by date of creation or something. But then, your starred items aren’t at the top anymore and are scattered throughout. This is sssooo annoying; it makes me not want to use this app at all. I want to be as loyal to this app as I was to Wunderlist. This is a big oversight in the design of this app. Until this is fixed, I can only give it 3 stars. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP!
Frustrated!
by Dust907601 on 2020/04/18 17:34
I am so frustrated with Microsoft To Do! It has been extremely frustrating trying to import my lists to Microsoft To Do from Wunderlist. It will not store any of my image files within the app, but says I can import them onto my phone or computer as a file, which defeats the purpose of having a list for things that need files. For instance, I have a dietary food chart that I need to refer to frequently. The app does not allow for this due to the file size being too large. I enjoy making lists of gift ideas or future things I wish to order with a web site or image on my list. It will not allow for any of this, which has caused me to no longer have access to these lists. I did download these as a file but it is not in list form but just a mis mash list of images one after another. Also, another frustration is that when I simply wanted to invite my husband to share a grocery list with me, it ended up inviting a whole group of my contacts that were added automatically somehow. I miss the ease of Wunderlist and hope that Microsoft can update this app to make it at least as good as Wunderlist was.
Tasks and Outlook
by NB Unicorn on 2020/08/11 13:02
Hello - I love tasks, however it doesn’t community to email as I would like. It doesn’t allow me to create a note/task tied directly to an email. Every email that comes in has action items tied to it. So if we had the ability to add a Note/task to that email, it would help us focus on the actionable items of importance. If we open 100 emails a day, that’s a lot of action items. And if we wanted to prioritize those actions of importance, we need an organized way to see those actions. So the tasks would appear in 2 locations exactly the same. Duplicate. One on the task bar as it is today, and the other would appear as a icon of some sort on the email itself. Could you add an icon on the email options for “tasks/notes” with time and date stamps on them so we can get even more strategic on what we are completing first. Also, if we do get the option to create an action task for email, can that option also be made available for the mobile app. I try and work on my phone as often as I can however it’s not as efficient as the desktop applications.
Merely populates iPhone Reminders
by billy'n'holly on 2020/05/11 11:12
I’ll give this app 2-stars because it doesn’t crash ... but seriously, why would anyone WANT to quit using the superior Wunderlist for this half-effort? Any item you create is stored in the iPhone Reminders as a to-do, but neither scheduled nor shared with associates. Items are not entered by default with a due date, and even if you do add a due or reminder date, they’ll disappear from “today” and don’t carry over to tomorrow, so you must manually add any tasks from a single list of ALL tasks. If you mark an item with a star ... well that’s meaningless. And should you open your iPhone Reminders, you’ll find 100’s of stored there, thereby making simple reminders (like “go to bed”) lost amongst the work tasks that didn’t require being spammed through the Reminders app, not to mention now your to-do of “turn in report” has the same unimportant notification appearance, sound, and limited snooze options as “pick up kids from school”. Utterly worthless and a lesson for how to drive away millions of customers so an app exists solely to have O365 but without any of Wunderlist’s functionality. What a waste.
Missing the “PRINT LIST” feature! Frustrated...
by ABerry83 on 2020/03/10 01:45
I am a Wunderlist user who (like many many others) was forced to migrate to Microsoft To Do. I had for years used Wunderlist’s “PRINT LIST” option which allows me to print about a dozen or so weekly cleaning and chore lists for around the house DIRECTLY from my iPhone via AirPrint and send all my checklists to my home printer wirelessly—complete with indented tasks, sub-tasks, task notes, page numbers, neatly organized checkboxes next to each item, and even a proper header and footer with the date my list was printed, etc.; however, this same option to print is NOT available in Microsoft To Do which is very frustrating since I have use this feature on a weekly basis for years now. I had spent a significant amount of time creating detailed lists for other things such as an “RV Checklist” and others. Now, since we are forced to move away from Wunderlist to the lessor Microsoft To Do app, I will have to spend time finding and migrating again over to another better app that allows me a simple option to directly print my lists from my iPhone via AirPrint straight to my networked home printer.
Keeps getting better
by Scotteeboy on 2020/04/06 04:33
This app is so well supported, with constant interactions at it’s worth checking out - especially if you work within Microsoft 365 and the Microsoft ecosystem. That said, the more information it brings in, the more it needs to allow you to filter the info. That’s where it has some shortcomings. To make this a great app I’d like to see better filtering capabilities so I can filter the info I need to see across lists (even if the tasks are coming from Planner). I’d like to move planner tasks into various lists. I’d like a list of my tags so I don’t have to guess at what tags I’ve got out there. Saved items from Teams should also be brought into To-do in the same way planner tasks are brought in. And of course, there should be option to automatically populate My Day. I understand why this feature is missing but it needs to be an option if the user wants it. That would help take some of the manual work out of using My Day. Thanks again to the To Do team.
Missing a few things
by Etta1975 on 2020/01/21 14:15
Over all good app but there are a few things it’s missing that other apps have. I make a list of “todo” and if I don’t get to one task it sits there in past waiting for me to click it. I e seen other apps where it will move to current day if task isn’t complete which will continue my repeat task and I’m not having to go back to click off each thing I didn’t do from past days before it will show up in current to do’s. Also I make a list for groceries, though it will cross the grocery products off when I click them I have seen other apps that you have the option to see it crossed off or completely removed from the list. I like seeing the things removed and this app doesn’t have that feature. Over all I will use the app but I still have to use other apps with this one. I would like a “one app does all” so I can delete other apps
Serves its purpose
by Dang Hazelnut on 2019/02/11 23:18
My husband and I have been looking for an app that accommodates to our meal-planning. This one is by far the best due to a simple user interface, convenient checklist, uncomplicated tools, and online account integration. Although what we use is very different than what this app is intended for, it’s exactly what we need. We are removing one star because we find it difficult to retype all the entries for other lists. Having a copy-and-paste feature would be wonderful. Another feature we would like to see is an option to set which page is defaulted when opening the app. Right now, it’s “My Day” and we would like to be able to see the entire list page when we open the app. Lastly, we would love to see an expanded collection of colors and themes. Heck, I would love for it to be completely customizable where we can select photos from our camera roll. Looking forward to what the future updates this app has to offer!
Almost five stars...
by •CiCi• on 2020/06/08 18:45
This app is really nice for lots of reasons. One of these is, it's completely free! Which is super nice because I tried to find other planner apps however you HAD to get premium on all of them which made me really upset. Also, with this app, you can create a custom repeat unlike other apps where you can only repeat daily or weekly etc. I also really enjoy how organized it is. It's great for multiple things like, goal tracking, to do, school work, and much more! I didn't give it five stars because, 1. I was really hoping that I would be able to make the tasks diffrent colors or diffrent fonts not that this is totally important but I think it would make it more enjoyable for me. And 2. When you get into the app you have to long into your Microsoft account. Which isn't a big deal however, I did not have one before so it was a very long process to create one. 3. You cant use your personal photos as the theme background.
Nice but feels unfinished (unlike Wunderlist)
by jpgeorge on 2020/03/28 23:22
TLDR: I think I can’t appreciate this app because I basically want it to be Wunderlist - and it’s not. Details: I’m another old Wunderlist user (since 2014) and I was forced to find a new app since Wunderlist is getting the real boot this year. I liked To do at first, but I’ve slowly grown to dislike it. It is not a smooth, solid app like Wunderlist. It glitches often - especially on the Mac. I couldn’t get used it’s “My Day” philosophy: having to pick tasks every day even though I’d set tasks for that day in the past. Just feels like an extra step, and I couldn’t quite get how it’s supposed to work with my tasks for which I’d set scheduled due dates. It has a “planned” view but it just doesn’t feel righ. And I cannot understand why they don’t have comments like Wunderlist did - that was very useful for track progress on tasks. So I’m going to have to find something else unfortunately. I really wanted to like this app, but it just doesn’t fill in the space left by Wunderlist.
UI is phenomenal - but a couple huge complaints
by millerrh on 2019/09/11 03:26
This redesign is nearly perfect. I love the design so much more than Wunderlist. But it is missing a few key features that make it hard to use for me. 1) There are no notification bubbles that appear when a task is overdue like on Wunderlist. I used this feature all the time for recurring tasks that I want out of my way but to be reminded of when it is time to do them. These overdue tasks should be automatically populated in My Day and you should be notified of them. Or at least have the option to. 2) When viewing tasks in My Day or Important, they are all lumped together. If you have multiple projects, it can get disorienting. I prefer the way Wunderlist did it where you can see tasks grouped by the project/list they came from. Helps to organize these lists that pull from multiple projects better.
Half-Baked
by Grogboshi on 2018/03/08 02:16
This app and its web counterpart need a lot more work. It would be great if they combined it with Outlook Tasks and Planner into a single task management system, akin to Todoist. The app needs natural language support, a desktop Mac client, tie-ins with Teams to create tasks and projects directly from Teams, and tasks dated for today need to be automatically added to My Day so everything due in a given day is all in one place, rather than looking from list to list. It would also be great if it had a general Inbox to add tasks to as they come to mind and then organize later, like GTD prescribes. List sharing would be another big boost, especially for businesses if it’s linked to Teams, so that projects could be organized through ToDo and tasks managed. Apps like TickTick or Todoist show how powerful task management systems can also be easy to use and good for both individuals and businesses. Hopefully this app will follow in their footsteps and replace the myriad Microsoft task and project management options that currently exist (Outlook Tasks, Planner, To-Do), like Microsoft is doing consolidating Lync, Skype, and Teams.
Steps are headed in the right direction but…
by middlenameray on 2018/04/13 20:26
With the addition of steps/subtasks, we’re definitely getting closer to this app replicating the full functionality Wunderlist (need folders and shared notes support to make it complete). But there’s a weird glitch in the app and the steps keep disappearing/reappearing. Sometimes they show, sometimes they don’t. The first time I reopened the app after creating some steps on one of my to-dos I thought they didn’t take, so I added them again, then they vanished again on another reload, so I added them again. Turns out, when I opened the To-Do web client, the original steps I added and ALL the duplicate entries saved to the cloud like they were supposed to but don’t always populate on screen on the phone. What a productivity nightmare. Add a new step? They all appear again. Rearrange the to-dos? Disappear. If this bug can be squashed I’ll give the app a fourth star. I’ll be screenshotting any to-dos with steps in the meantime so I can be sure I can reference them when I’m on the go.
You just broke it! You changed the basic functionality from REPETITIVE list to ONE-OFF
by GrooverKing on 2020/05/05 13:49
The latest up(down?)date removed the ability to SHOW ALL items together and SORT the list while selecting items. This capability was a huge improvement over Wunderlist and was the only reason we switched. We use To Do for groceries. The list is over a hundred items because we buy the same stuff again and again. Using the completed list, we just find and uncheck what we are out of instead of tediously typing it in each time. Before this update, ‘Show Completed’ items mixed the two lists, in alpha order and we could quickly find items to add, stuff we forgot but need, and stuff added twice! The latest update ruined that functionality, and now it takes longer to make a list than just sending a text. The ‘Completed’ list is now randomly arranged, and can’t be sorted. Please restore the combined sort capability as an option for users who need a shareable list of REPETITIVE items, like grocery lists or household tasks or weekly agendas or repair parts.......
Over designed
by Unparadise on 2018/06/01 16:35
I like the improvement I have seen in the past few months. I think Todo is heading the right direction. There are a few features such as assign to someone and attach photos to a note that are still missing. And it doesn’t do a good job integrating with other Microsoft services such as Outlook and Flow. But I hope these will be added along the way. One thing I strongly dislike about this app is it’s unnecessary big visual background that takes up 1/3 of the screen. Even though it goes away after scrolling its uneconomical use of limited real estate on the phone makes me hate it. A todo app should focus on what the user tries to accomplish and reduce every possible noise. I love the Things app for its simple design. It’s just so beautiful. You can feel that everything shown on the screen is intentional with a purpose. The original Wunderlist design was also really good for the same reason. Please offer the option to remove the annoying title background. I hate it! Thanks
Completed Tasks Can’t Be Sorted (UPDATED)
by JoshuaAbatie on 2020/06/03 20:20
My wife and I use To Do for our grocery list in a very efficient way: Our shopping list has 100+ items in it, all completed at any given time. When it’s time to grocery shop, we scroll through that list and unmark whatever we need in a quick and efficient revolving list.... or at least we used to be able to do that. Now, the “completed tasks” are seemingly no longer affected by the sort function. Selecting sort only impacts those items that are not completed, which completely ruins our system. Why can you no longer sort completed tasks? Update as of 6/3/20: The most recent update brings back the sort ability for completed tasks. Thank you, To Do team for listening and fixing this issue!
Missing One Critical Feature!!
by Kaspa7 on 2018/10/02 04:26
I love the simple yet pretty layout of this app, and I love that I can create different categories (work, school, personal) while having a “My Day” area that shows me ALL tasks that I need to complete that day. Beautiful! HOWEVER, any task you put a due date on does NOT automatically show up in My Day once that day arrives! So even if I put a task as “due tomorrow”, once tomorrow comes it will not show up in My Day. So basically every single morning I have to go through my various lists and add tasks manually to My Day. The whole point of having a due date for me is to “set it and forget it”. It’s too exhausting to add each task manually every day. Doesn’t it make sense that if a task is DUE TODAY that it should appear in the MY DAY folder? Drives me crazy!! I also wish it would have a badge app icon showing me how many tasks are on My Day for the day, so I can have a quick glance just from the home screen of how many tasks I still have to complete that day.
Improving, update by update
by cierrabrooke on 2018/12/01 15:41
To-Do has definitely improved from my first download a year ago, but there are still key features that keep me with Wunderlist (app/company was acquired by Microsoft and that team now works on To-Do). Pros of To-Do that have me looking forward to a move from Wunderlist: - Dropped the skeuomorphic design - Has Wunderlist import feature (some reviews say this is still a little buggy) - The font is clean and visually pleasing Features Wunderlist has that To-Do still needs: - Folders and nesting for lists: I prefer to break out different projects and responsibilities within my work list - Option for a scrolling calendar wheel, or the ability to have weeks start on Monday, not Sunday when setting task due dates. I’m fine with the “Pick a date” calendar option, but I would SO prefer the ability to have this calendar have Mondays to start weeks. I’ve been able to do this in Outlook, so I know you can add this feature 😊 - Ability to update profile photo: Currently cannot update the standard avatar - Variety of neutral backgrounds: With To-Do, the background of the “Important” list cannot be altered. For now it’s an uneditable purple space telescope theme. I tried to swap every list to be a plain neutral blue with no cartoon drawings. Some people may love the cartoons, but I need more neutral color options and just want to focus on my to dos, especially the ones I’ve noted are most important!
could be better
by Jessesaint on 2020/01/03 09:12
A lot simpler and easier to use than OneNote for task, however I'd really like the option to hide "my day". I have zero interest in using it and would much rather have the mobile and desktop app's open into my first tab/ group. Please, it's always in the way and extremely annoying. Like OneNote, both apps need a trash can/ recently deleted, it's extremely careless for the developers not to include one as I've lost a few well-written notes over this non-including of an EXTREMELY important feature. Not even an undo option, issues with shake to undo, really??? At least To Do has an "are you sure you want to delete?", but it's not enough. Also can't figure out how to delete unintentional created groups in the mobile app, only on the desktop app... Okay? All around it's better then what's out there, just a few tedious important features missing for me to give it a complete five stars. also I don't know what your problem is, but if I take my time to drag and drop something it would be great if you didn't make it JUMP BACK TO THE END.
Buggy still

A great start and I’m happy so far. I used to be an avid user of Astrid and Wunderlist, and have been pretty frustrated these good apps keep getting bought by mega corporations. (Yahoo and Microsoft) For this app, there are some bugs and quirky behaviors that are frustrating. I migrated from Wunderlist and these weren’t issues before. Some example below: - The weekly recurring tasks don’t work. Just try it. If I set it for Friday, it somehow labels it as “Thu, Fri”. Is it a time zone issue? I’m in ET. - The sorting doesn’t work well. As we could in Wunderlist or even Excel, a sort order should not lock the list. We should still be able to move items around. Imagine a use case, where I want the list to be first sorted by items in the order they were created...then I want to reorder some items to appear on top. Not possible right now. We just end up having a jumbled mess. - When you inadvertently check off an item, it’s almost impossible to find it to uncheck it if you had Completed Items hidden. In Wunderlist, when a task is completed, it gets sent to the bottom and they are sorted in the order which they were completed. Now not anymore. It’s jumbled elsewhere and due to the weird sorting behavior (mentioned above), I can’t find it. - No easy way to purge completed items? This should be a setting. I had hundreds maybe thousands in some lists, and I had to manually delete each one. (I had to because I felt the app was slow.)
Can be frustrating to use

I used Wunderlist to keep running meal plans and a grocery list. I switched over to To Do when they emailed us about phasing out the app. Since using to do, I have been annoyed with the “show completed tasks” feature. It’s easy to accidentally check off an item that you haven’t completed. In Wunderlist, I could quickly figure out what I clicked by accident, because it kept the crossed off item in the same location in the list (showed it in it’s original location with the uncompleted tasks still there). In to do, if you say to show completed tasks, it pulls them up in a totally different order... like a running list of completed to do’s. There is no way for me to figure out which one I just removed from my list by mistake. My app is also freezing up when I say “hide completed tasks”. It won’t go back to my list. I have to shut the app down and reopen it. When scrolling sometimes the app thinks I’ve selected a task and moves it... I understand the desire to rearrange items, but I would rather that be a separate menu or something. I make my grocery list in an order to begin with. I don’t want that order changed because I’m scrolling. Maybe include an edit option that allows you to move items, but make items stay put unless you specifically tap the dot to check them off. Too much happens by accident!
Lovely, except for sorting options

I switched to this app because my gTasks Pro app has become too slow at syncing (it syncs via Google tasks). I like the features and interface on Microsoft ToDo, and the syncing is lightning fast. A major problem, however, is the lack of flexibility in sorting. gTasks allows you to sort manually, which is highly effective. With Microsoft ToDo if I want to sort, for example, by “Importance”, and then have the tasks move to the bottom of the list when marked “Complete”, I’m out of luck. As a result, the list quickly becomes cluttered with completed tasks (if I sort by completed tasks the remaining uncompleted tasks have no sort order). I can manually drag a task anywhere I like, but it snaps back to it’s original location immediately. I’ve ended up going back to gTasks Pro for longer lists, and using this app for short lists only. It would be a 5 star app of the sorting option gets enhanced.
A simple reminders app is just what most of us need.

I started looking for a reminders app when I realized that the calendar’s “up next” widget contains reminders as well, so I deleted reminders and started looking elsewhere. Most of the reminders apps I’ve seen are either really simple, too complicated, or have complex tasks and just useless stuff locked behind a paywall. Microsoft’s ToDo is not the best app for the job, but it’s at least got the basics down, doesn’t lock it in a paywall, and doesn’t make it super complex. I would still like having location based reminders like on the Apple app, but I’ll forgive it. It still has: Reminders based on time, repeating reminders daily-weekly-monthly-yearly, notes, and color coded reminders groups. Yes, I wish it had location reminders, and that it didn’t force me to have it’s “Tasks” group, but it really is all you need. It’s basic, and that’s good.

I was a Wunderlist user and I used it for very simple things - groceries, personal to-do’s, etc. Light, simple use. Loved Wunderlist. I’ve experienced Issues with this app that seem very basic to me, though. For example: - Synching is buggy. I share several lists with my wife and somehow we end up with lists that aren’t exactly the same sometimes. Just got home from the grocery store, wife’s list has hamburger buns, mine didn’t. Watched as we synched again and still not on my list. Of course additional trips to the grocery store are now not so routine. - when I toggle the app to show items crossed off a list, that works. When I toggle back to not showing them it freezes. Every. Single. Time. - it won’t let me move something to the very bottom of the list. Have to move it to second to last, then move the last item up one. - seems very easy to inadvertently cross something off when scrolling compared to Wunderlist. - the nesting feature seems nice in concept, but it’s very easy to accidentally nest something under another to-do item when moving things around on an iPhone, and for the life of me I can’t figure out how to un-nest it. So, stuck with deleting it and adding it again. I would expect some bugs from a fairly new app but seems like Microsoft should be able to do better than the average little app builder. So, we’re gonna use Wunderlist until we can’t then find something else.
Perfect for me
by RevRMK on 2019/07/12 13:47
I am one of those people who keep trying different organizational apps and systems. I’ve found this one best meets my needs for on that is not cluttered and great for the day to day lists I make. I love creating a project list of tasks, giving the a date or making a more detailed sub-list, giving it a date or not. The best part is starting each My Day with a clean slate and adding the tasks with recommendations from the app. I love I can set up my day before I leave for work from my iPad then check off the list as I go from the desktop at work. The only thing I would add, or haven’t discovered how to do, is to archive my completed list for future use, especially for an annual work event. I don’t like the look of the long list of completed projects and don’t want to delete them.
I’ve been searching and I found this
by leonard_ong on 2019/03/06 11:23
I used to use OmniFocus, but the interface overwhelmed me. So many buttons and options just to create a task! As a result, I set out searching for a replacement. I’ve tried Wunderlist, iOS reminders, Todoist and a plethora of other apps, but so far To-Do has been the only one with a simple and elegant interface. Everything is incredibly straightforward and there’s even a platform to vote on new features. It’s comforting to know that our voices are being heard on new features. That being said, the app isn’t perfect either. One of my biggest pet peeves is that I can’t plan My Day in advance. It would be good if I could swipe left and right to review yesterday’s and tomorrow’s tasks respectively. Other than that, this app is the best I’ve seen so far. keep it up Microsoft.
Repeating Tasks Repeatedly Disappear
by quantumofsolace on 2019/02/12 19:06
In the couple of months I've used the app, I've had to re-enter repeating tasks several (3-4) times. It seems to only affect daily tasks but I'm not 100 on that. At some point after I complete a repeating task, the app doesn't repopulate the task for the next iteration. So if I have a task that says "go to the gym" and I check it as completed, sometimes the task shows up the next day and sometimes it doesn't. I don't know exactly when this happens because it's hard to notice a single missing task. (At least for me –i have about 25 repeating tasks.) I assume there's a bug somewhere but it shouldn't take two months for a major corporation to fix it, especially since this is basic functionality for a task app. I should have known the app would be extra when I had to reimport my tasks from Wunderlist 3 times. That process should have been infinitely easier since Microsoft develops both Wunderlist and To Do. I had intended to transition to To Do but I think I'll stick with Wunderlist for the moment.
Same as Wunderlist
by AskLifeCoach on 2020/05/16 19:05
I was a HUGE Wunderlist fan for years. It was my most useful app. I deleted the stock lists and made my own lists. It’s for more than shopping and TODO lists. I use it for lots of “HOW to do lists”. Meaning lists I follow to close up the cabin in the fall and other lists to open it in the spring. There is no limit to the type or purpose of lists you can create to make your life easier. The big benefit is the ability to check mark ✅ an item to add to a list and check mark ✅ it when it’s finished. This means a list only needs to be typed in one time. I was devastated when I was told Wunderlist was going away, replaced by this app. Ultimately only the name and colors have changed. This is every bit as good as Wunderlist and honestly, it’s even a bit better.
Off to a great start, but needs maturing.
by TheRamius on 2019/07/10 18:26
Pros: - User friendly for what it offers - Fluid, simple interface. Isn’t confusing to know what you’re doing. - Easy to prioritize tasks - Each task can be broken up into items (very useful for projects and/purchasing) Cons - Minimal navigation ability on completed tasks. Only way to navigate completed tasks is by opening up a list where it’s all dumped into. It may be in chronological order, but it’s difficult to know for sure. This leads me to my second issue... - Completed tasks don’t have a date of completion listed next to it unless you click on the individual task. So if you want to know what you completed in a particular week a couple months ago, you have to keep clicking on items until you find the date of interest. It isn’t clear however in what order the completed tasks are arranged. - As of today there is a bug which keeps you from deleting a repeated task in bulk. I accidentally set a reminder for the next 20 years and it generated tasks for every day for the next 20 years. I couldn’t delete them or remove them from my completed tasks list. I’m sure this would be a relatively simple fix. - If you don’t click something as completed the day it was completed, you cannot go back and edit. It only shows the date you clicked completed.
Finding another to do app today
by gillette411 on 2020/03/22 22:31
I also moved to this app from Wunderlist, unfortunately. This app doesn’t do anything the same way. I’m a simple person and really only use it for my grocery list, not all the reminders and scheduling that others talk about. But this app can’t even get a grocery list right. I buy many of the same things week after week, month after month. So when you check an item off, it doesn’t move to the bottom automatically to get it out of the way. And when you uncheck an item, it doesn’t move back to the top automatically. You can move it manually if you don’t have any kind of filter on, but that can be a lot of items to move. And you can’t manually move items up and down if any filters are on. Starring an item only puts it in another list altogether rather than moving it to the top of the current list as a priority. I will be downloading a different to do list app today. This was a horrible recommendation from Wunderlist.
Simple and Beautiful
by Smanhan on 2020/09/05 16:53
I’ve tried some of the top rated to-do apps, and they all don’t fit my purpose even though they offer much more functions. This app is neat, beautiful and totally what I am looking for as it’s easy to use, great everyday to-do checklist function as well as notes that I can add within the task without paying extras like some of the top apps. I also love the reminder notification, sorting function and themes which is sleek, fun and easy to add tasks. There may be hiccups in the older versions which I read, but these may have already been fixed for the newer version, so far I haven’t encountered any issues. Synchronization is a breeze between my MacBook and iPhone - almost instant actually ! Overall, it’s a 9/10 for me! Thank you creator!
Extremely Disappointed with the Sorting Features
by Chris528F on 2020/03/19 01:00
I would give this app 5 stars if only after sorting by importance, I could then sort the list more finely by moving the important items in the order I want them. I could do this with Wunderlist, but I can’t do it with Microsoft To Do. I really don’t understand why it is so hard for the Microsoft team to make this change. I use the list for groceries and I have a over 200 items. By starring the items I want, it moves them to the top of the list. But then they are all a jumble. Thus if I have 20 items on my grocery list, I constantly have to be scanning the list and I find myself walking back and forth around the store because the list is not in order. If I were able to sort the grocery items I want to buy, by aisle, after sorting them by importance, it would make the shopping process so much easier and more efficient. I am pleading with you Microsoft, to make this change.
A Pinch From the Finish Line
by icuragoose on 2018/01/06 21:39
(There is now iPad support!) I have loved Wunderlist, and Microsoft aims to replace it. The features in To Do are remarkably similar and familiar to Wunderlist users with simplicity and minimalism at its core. With a slimmed-down UI, there's less to distract you and with the flawlessly smooth and responsive controls, you feel like you have a firm grasp on your system. Everything is intuitive and inviting. In addition, I'm from Seattle, so I appreciate the themes. Right now the only things missing for my own workflow is the ability to have folders and sublists. This is my last reservation for using this app and once this is complete (both are planned), I can officially utilize this as a Wunderlist replacement. Once I use this in my workflow, I will be most excited about the "My Day" feature. I can use that in tandem with my office' implementation of Kanban to help me see what I committed to getting done today. I can see this being useful for O365 organizations as well, since it can replace the Outlook tasks, pull assigned tasks from Planner, have inputs with Teams (i.e. Right click a message and select "Create Task") I'm excited to see where this goes as I wait patiently for the product to bake. Until then, three stars is about where it's at as of now--little more than a college student's obligatory first app.
Start good-End BAD!
by Lennsg on 2020/05/12 00:08
Leave it to Microsoft to destroy something by improving on it. Microsoft bought out Winderlist to create this “to-do” list. -Not Microsoft’s Creation- At first it was somewhat better than the original Wunderlist. But then someone at Microsoft decided to tweak it. The improvement Microsoft made was to list completed items alphabetically. This was great when creating a reusable grocery list. It was easy to look up items needed to shop for. Now all items in the completed column are jumbled. You now have to carefully scroll through your entire list to find the items needed for next weeks shopping list. And when you have to add an item sometimes every day or so, this becomes a pain in the pattuty. If you know what I mean. THANKS MICROSOFT!!!
The most important app on my phone
by StephenCausey on 2020/01/28 00:14
I picked up this app on my iPhone and Mac, hoping I could work it into my routine at work and solve some of my team’s productivity and communication issues. To Do quickly became the lifeline of my business in exactly the way I had hoped, by organizing all of our messy actions and projects across multiple lists shared among various team members. In addition to typical tools in the toolbox, such as “Reminder,” “Due Date,” “Steps” and others, the addition of “My Day” and “Assign To” are unique to me tools I use every single day. To Do is incredibly simple to use and understand. In addition to work, I’ve been using it as well for my personal life, and other professional projects and volunteer work. Doing this has only strengthened my commitment to it, while my past experience with to do apps was almost always short-lived. Few other apps, if any, bring a simplified, high level of organization and teamwork to productivity as this one does- at a cost of nothing. I’m looking forward to updates with new features and further integration with Outlook and other Microsoft tools, but right now, this is already the best and most important app I use, hands down!
A few suggestions
by beanbeanjuice on 2020/02/12 17:02
I’ve recently been forced to switch over from Wunderlist (been using it for over a year) to Microsoft To Do. I have a few suggestions since this was forced by you guys. Please add the option to swipe down on a list to sync it rather than needing to go into my account and clicking sync (similar to how on Snapchat you swipe down to refresh). Secondly, for the Mac app, please make a widget for it, so I don’t need to open the app but instead can leave it at the top right of my screen in an icon I can press at any time to access the app. Again for the Mac, add the ability to swipe down to refresh/sync the list. Otherwise, the app looks much cleaner and is easier to use (not including what I just mentioned) and am very much looking forward to hopefully these suggestions being added.
Keepin’ it 100
by hellerpopstar16 on 2020/04/30 16:41
I’ve been using Wunderlist app for 2 years or more for free. At first I had a tough time re-organizing and figuring out how to use the app. It only took me 5 min to create my own goals, routines, and any list of things I want. Wunderlist app emerged with Microsoft To Do, and I was not excited about the news. I was afraid all my things to do list, goals and whatever I created for years will be gone then I’ll have to re-start all over again. I wasn’t looking forward to that. I downloaded Microsoft To Do and it asked me for my log in account. After I logged in my account it asked me to synchronize my Wunderlist to Microsoft To Do and I was super happy! I just can’t believe it! It transferred everything exactly alike from my Wunderlist app. Microsoft To Do is exactly like Wunderlist app with added custom colors and backgrounds. I really like different backgrounds plus the colorful fonts. Microsoft To Do made my tedious list to fun and customizable to whatever I want it. Thank you Wunderlist for continuous improvement, and making my life simple with this app also for making the app for free! I don’t give out 5 stars rating but this app is valuable to me, and my every day go to app.
Not ready for prime time, far from it
by No ads preferred on 2019/04/10 14:10
The primary fault I have with this app is the lack of ability to schedule tasks. It allows you to assign a due date and will let you set a reminder, but true scheduling of a task is wholly missing. What I mean is that I want to be able that a task is due to be complete by a certain time on a certain date. And then the list of tasks is presented in that order. Here’s what I need to do first today, then what I need to do next, etc. items with a due date but no required due time would be at the end of the list for that day. The reminder field in the app would be used more for telling me when to start a task. A secondary fault is a more robust prioritization. More than just a star or not star rating, it needs to let me say that a task has a high, medium, or low priority. That way, if I have to let a task slip, I’ll know which one. The “Errands” app does this well. I don’t use it because I need a to-do app that will work both on my iPhone and my PC. Next, categorization would be very nice. Thus, I can assign a task to a “Field” category or an “Office” category, depending on where it needs to be done. Then I could filter on the “Field” tasks when I head out the door. This should be a free-form data field so I can make up my own list of categories. But it should be such that I can see all tasks if I want to, not just one category. Finally, integration with Outlook on my PC would be great.
Doesn’t hold a candle to Wunderlist
by snc68 on 2019/03/10 15:26
I have been a happy user of Wunderlist for the last couple of years. It’s an exceptional app for organizing your to do list. There was another reviewer that hit the nail on the head with this. The biggest flaw with this To-Do app is that you cannot organize and categorize your tasks in a given day. Why have smart list if your app won’t organize them by smart list? It doesn’t make sense. In the Wunderlist app you enter tasks, you categorize them and then for any given day all the things that you need to do for the day are grouped in the different categories. it’s a simple concept and shouldn’t be too difficult to enable. For example if you go to the grocery store, you don’t go in with a list that has everything all mixed up on one long list. In order to be efficient, you typically will group things by area in the store. You’ll put all of your vegetables together all of your dairy etc. That way you’re not running around the store in a disorganized fashion and missing things on your list. Same thing with managing your daily tasks. It takes way too many brain cells to try to jumble everything up. They need to be categorized so that your brain doesn’t have to do too much work. Very disappointed in this app and I hope Wunderlist stays around in the ether for a while so I can continue to use it. Will have to find something else because To-Do does not cut it.
VERY Disappointing
by Neal William on 2019/09/26 20:05
I’d consider the MS To-Do programming team second worst to the failed Evernote developers (who made a pretty but ruined product). They don’t take the time to understand what users really want, but do things that are “technically right” but practically idiotic. Most recently they reduced the size of a list header. Why??Users complained about it. Why? Because it used limited phone screen space that could be used to show more tasks. So what did the developers do? They added a huge Add Task input box at the bottom of EVERY list, which takes up even more space than the previous header! Furthermore, the tacky Add Task box doesn’t scroll. It just stays at the bottom taking up room! I wanted to like MS To-Do. It’s got a clean interface and is readable. But “you can’t fix stupid”. I consider interface problems caused by poor programming the worst kind of stupid. They reveal the (lack of) capability of the software development team. Accordingly, I’ve moved my tasks and dumped MS To-Do. For those considering MS To-Do, another stupidity is that you cannot set your tasks for “My Day” the evening before. If you want to do that and start your day with ACTION, deciding what to do the day before, save yourself and use another app. Don’t let MS tell you how you should work. MS purchased Wunderlist as the source for MS To-Do. From what I read Wunderlist was abc A+ 5* app. Looks like MS purchased it to ruin it. I “wunder” how long it will survive
