Convenient and Synchronized
by vali girl 09 on 2021/05/11 19:46
Provides a convenient means to track daily priorities and everyday lists such as groceries, shopping or other personal customized lists. The "Daily To Do" synchronizes and works seamlessly between my iPhone and MS 365 Outlook Tasks
Calendar is missing
by RezzzzzzAr on 2021/05/11 06:24
It’s a to-do app and designed to help people organizing their daily tasks, businesses and, etc. How is it even possible without a calendar? A built-in calendar with iOS calendar integration is necessary, please take a look at the “suggest a feature” section of your website, it has been years since people asking for a calendar. I give one star for now, although it deserves five stars even without a calendar.
Would like to see Apple Watch integration
by puux3 on 2021/05/10 15:07
I love this app and use it daily. Would love to see an integration for Apple Watch.
Such a disappointment
by JFJiii on 2021/05/10 11:29
Takes Microsoft forever to program improvements No control over subtasks No creativity Very basic with no edge over other To Do programs
Great when you have workers
by Lookproperty on 2021/05/10 02:46
This app is simple enough that my workers can use to determine what I would like them to accomplish.
Grocery list
by sam0159 on 2021/05/09 16:53
It’s great. No carrying a piece of paper & pen. The fact that alphabetized is even better. Thanks.
NotThe best
by samanthaking2012 on 2021/05/09 11:49
Every morning, my recurring tasks revert to The previous week. Really annoying to have to go through them every day and readjust the due date.
Love this app!!! Connects my Apple tasks too!!!
by Advoc84others on 2021/05/08 01:29
Great for work and home! Simple easy to use.
Best app ever
by Dandalar on 2021/05/06 17:15
This app is such a wonderful tool. When my wife and I do food shopping we can both go in different directions and check off items on the list that we share. Cut’s or time in the store way down. In and Out, in a snap.
Limit file size
by cmkpsl on 2021/05/06 14:09
You have a 25mb limit to file sizes for each list, that mean if I add 4 pictures at 8 mb I’m done?!?! Why??? The only thing you have done by limiting the file size is make me creat multiple lists just for pictures. What advantage was gained for you our the user.?
Organization at its best!
by Saint Holliday on 2021/05/05 17:52
This is such a great tool for organizing life in general it has so many little features for organizing your work schedule or family time it’s amazing.To-Do allows you to create task straight from your email, set reminders, and completely own your day!
Wow
by EOOW on 2021/05/04 01:50
Finally this app has exceeded everything I need in a task manager.
Keeps me organized
by Gypsy Gardener on 2021/05/03 01:34
I have a list for each store I go to: groceries, Costco, hardware, Trader Joe’s, etc. really helps me not forget what I need at each store. Have one for packing for travel so I don’t forget the phone charger, etc. One list for recommendations for movies books and pod casts. Handy app to have
Cool thanks
by Bomber Babies on 2021/05/02 23:47
Nice
Solid
by Floopspoon on 2021/05/01 20:33
Overall a solid app, although there are a few areas for improvement.
Love it but have had issues
by Mama Tietz on 2021/05/01 13:27
I love the organization possibilities with this app but I am giving only 3 stars because 2 days ago, I opened a list and half of it was gone. I was really annoyed by it and immediately transferred what was left to paper. After closing and reopening the app, the list reappeared. This was not the first time this happened. It has also happened with notes.
Mostly good
by VectorZ on 2021/04/29 20:56
Please add an undo option and auto delete completed tasks option.
Does everything I need
by Evix4n9hu on 2021/04/29 05:25
It’s really nice to have the lists able to organize by steps and group tasks into sections. Optional notifications and reminders really help me get stuff done on time :)
To Do
by anowicki on 2021/04/29 01:04
I like where Microsoft is heading with To Do. I wish it was possible to create a legit To Do by sending a full email to To Do item, not just creating a To Do flag. I also wish it was easier to create a To Do from a Teams message.
When you use it it’s great!
by Wendi Olmstead on 2021/04/27 14:40
I love how easy it is to use, if you don’t get to something on your daily list it suggests it for the next day without having to retype, for recurring lists like packing for a trip...you can reuse the list without having to create a new list adding or deleting each time. A+ in my book.
Doesn’t Sync
by @JayP203 on 2021/04/24 01:30
The app design is great, but the point is to share the list with others and it should update the list to get everyone it’s shared with. We tried using it in our company and the lists were never the same on everyone’s phone. It doesn’t work too well if everyone doesn’t get the list updated as things are added or removed.
No multi account support 3 years later
by aloshka09 on 2021/04/22 19:34
Been 3 years later and still no multi account support like promised and on Android. Not an os limitation.
Different signing
by ez202010 on 2021/04/22 07:04
Hard to sign in and sync with other email.
Works Well!
by seoulbrotha on 2021/04/21 16:44
No complaints!
Sorting Needs Some Creativity
by rexrox2 on 2021/04/20 23:54
ToDo is a pretty good task organizer but it lacks 1 user feature that MS One Note has. The ability to manually sort or arrange the list by dragging a task from one location to another within the list. If ToDo had a grouping feature and/or manual sorting feature, it would help tremendously. As a simple example, if you want to organize a grocery shopping list to reflect the layout of the store, there does not seem to be a straightforward way to do this in To Do. In One Note, you can simply drag a task (grocery item) next to other like items effectively creating a group such that all the frozen items are together, veggies are together, etc.
No email notification
by Applecrazyfunfun on 2021/04/19 13:20
Come on! Why it is so hard for you to bring back the email notification feature on Wunderlist!!!!!!!! Will not use it until this feature is back.
Lost my lists!!
by AKCamperDude on 2021/04/19 13:13
Very feature complete app, but recent update 2.41 completed locked me out due to having a (completely legal) jailbroken device...this is MY device and not a work phone or enterprise account. Horrendous.
Excellent.
by DSC IaaS on 2021/04/18 22:46
Excellent. Need to receive assigned tasks on my iPad too
No more support for Alexa
by Bakk487 on 2021/04/18 10:25
This app has never been as good as Wunderlist, and removing support for Alexa is going to require me to go find another app. Very disappointing.
Under featured in comparison
by dano3006 on 2021/04/17 14:15
This is a decent To Do app to start with unless you have used others and need more features. Also can be very finicky in setting up with Microsoft cloud, which is necessary if it is to span multiple devices.
app doesnt update days in order
by Ledleedleedleedleedle on 2021/04/17 12:21
I spend 45 minutes setting it up only for it to bot work the next day in order.
No updates on for desktop.
by musicwiz123 on 2021/04/17 05:37
To do decide not to update High Sierra. So since I am updating the iOS it will eventually not work. Please make the Updates compatible with high Sierra.
Perfect for a family
by Jenngoodsarg on 2021/04/17 00:13
Our immediate family uses this app to share grocery lists, Costco lists, Target lists, pharmacy lists, etc. When Wunderlust was bought by Microsoft and turned into “To Do,” there was initially some pain involved with migrating lists and resharing. That’s all been fixed and it’s been smooth sailing for the past year. Highly recommend.
Lacking so many important features
by GoMechy on 2021/04/16 23:11
It’s hard to know where to start, but anyone who uses Outlook will recognize that this Task app is sorely lacking. I can only assume (and hope) that Microsoft is well aware of the many, many flaws and inadequacies in this tool. If not, please pay attention... We love Outlook. We live with Outlook Tasks everyday, all day long. We want the same features in a mobile version. Best of luck delivering on this...as soon as possible, please!!
Please update
by Kattylizabeth on 2021/04/16 15:21
I’d much prefer this app if there was a widget for my phone and if it was compatible with my Apple Watch. But other than that, I love the organization of the app and how smoothly it runs.
DO NOT USE
by Amyjwll on 2021/04/15 20:30
App froze! I’ve lost everything. I can not open any of my files. Wonderlist was so much better!! I’m warning you do NOT USE THIS APP! You will regret it!
Time zone bug?
by f'ness on 2021/04/14 12:33
I still see “my day” as yesterday and can’t add tasks to today. Not sure when this will change but it’s been really annoying not being able to plan my day until around 1pm. App doesn’t work.
Lost all my information
by K17925 on 2021/04/14 02:12
I have used Microsoft to do since it took over Wunderlist. One day it just stopped working, because the company decided they were just going to stop supporting this component of my school’s office 365 subscription. They stopped without any warning and I lost all the information I had stored on there and no way to get to it. I had information on there that I need and no way to get to it, at all.
No longer works with Alexa- TERRIBLE change
by Carolina Meerkat on 2021/04/13 18:17
Really disappointed they’ve removed the ability to link this to Alexa. Hope they get enough feedback to bring this back. For now I guess I’ll have to find another list app
Not accessible with voiceover
by HoustonGay on 2021/04/13 17:34
I can insert the task name, choose the reminder and due dates but I cannot save or even cancel the task using voiceover. What’s the point? Between this app and the desktop App, this is totally unusable
Key tool for staying focused
by berko45 on 2021/04/13 17:11
I love the My Day functionality. It really helps me keep my eye on the priorities. I get more accomplished with this app across all my devices
A disaster
by Time to Sew on 2021/04/12 10:57
I loved the To Do app. I used it first when it was just Wunderlist. Then one day it would not allow me to log in on my computer. I changed the password so that I could log in, but then it would not allow me to log in on my phone with the new password! I over a thousand lines of text in that app. I called Microsoft support to see if they could solve my problem, but they just told me that they had no such app and had never heard of it and that I had to call the developer. The way I finally solved the problem—if you could call it a solution—was to screenshot all 68 pages of lists for safe keeping. Then, since I had access only on my computer, I started copying every line to Reminders on my iPhone instead. It has been two months now, and I have only had time to transfer three or four lists to reminders. These lists included notes to myself about starting my own business, and it would be a tremendous loss to lose this information. I will never use a second party list app again! I wish I could give it a negative 5 stars.
Discriminates against jailbreakers
by Marvive on 2021/04/11 20:20
Jailbreakers aren’t able to use this app. It’s a to do list app. Not a game. Why do they fear someone hacking it?
Excellent task app
by Laprosky on 2021/04/10 19:57
Tried so many task apps to find the best one. Wunderlist was it for me. Then they migrated to ToDo and after a hiccup with sorting, it has surpassed the original.
Basic list app
by Liast on 2021/04/09 05:36
This is a helpful, but basic list app. Basic is good. But I really wish I were able to move tasks up and down within a list or to another list. I would also like the starred items to automatically move to the top.
No multi account support for business and personal
by Jared60000 on 2021/04/08 23:01
Update: still crippled by only one account, keeping work and personal tasks fragmented. Get it together. For real. I can only use one account? Update that and I’ll use it. I can’t believe you didn’t build that in for IOS users. It’s really sad.
Everything i need for a task list.
by kranky konsumer on 2021/04/08 12:34
Microsoft finally incorporated the best features of Wunderlist into ToDo. This is my first stop in the morning and helps me prioritize my day. Outlook integration also is a plus.
Need ability to switch between multiple accts
by T3chnicolor on 2021/04/08 01:41
I am hoping you add support for switching between multiple accounts, like you can on the Windows 10 app. This feature would allow me to switch over to MS To Do exclusively as the only app I’d use for todos. Currently I use one for work and one for personal. If I can add two accounts to the mobile app, it would be a game changer.
Missing functionality
by dongone on 2021/04/07 22:29
The aggravating thing about Microsoft apps for iOS and Mac is the lack of feature parity with Windows. Something as simple as the category for a task is available on Windows, but not on iOS. This cripples the app if used with Windows users because there are features that are missing, hard to find, or read-only. It would be great if Microsoft would live by the principle of all relevant features on all platforms. I was really hopeful that this could replace OmniFocus so that I could have task sharing with teammates, but it is a sad and broken imitation.
Stopped working with Alexa
by Jfm1976 on 2021/04/07 15:22
I want a list app that syncs with my Alexa lists, but now this one stopped doing that.
Please fix the bugs
by Mehrdad Wanderer on 2021/04/07 14:59
After the latest update, I don’t receive notification on a planned to-do item. My notification settings are all on, my iPhone is on the latest software, and so is the app. I tried it several times and put random items. I set the “remind me at x o’clock” and see the bell sign next to the item but no notifications.
I love this app!!!
by 606shadow707 on 2021/04/07 14:45
But if you can put the time when the next day begin that will be good
Took a great product and made it a pain
by Swanie5326 on 2021/04/07 13:54
I had Wunderlist for years and found it very easy to use. I easily shared a grocery list, and others, with my wife. From the day it became To Do, it has been a pain. It started with problems trying to login, continued with never sharing content added to lists, briefly worked properly and is now back to not allowing me to log in. I keep getting a message that says I must have a student or government account. Why? Don’t know and don’t care. Tired of messing with it.
Please add daily reminders
by myhandsfaeq on 2021/04/07 13:42
Please please please please
Multiple Accounts
by xishaan35 on 2021/04/07 10:06
No way to juggy around work and personal accounts. Android gets it, why nit iOS? Not fair. Want multiple accounts support in iOS app.
Almost there
by Ricsof on 2021/04/07 09:43
Wishing it will Gad a Siri short cut to be able to give 5 stars. This has great interface with outlook.
Horrible
by CelticMormon on 2021/04/07 03:32
Every other to-do app puts today tasks automatically in today list depending on date. Not this one. Create your tasks then each day go thru extra steps of placing in today tab. Worst to-do app on the narket
Poor support for recurring tasks
by Doug M 643787644 on 2021/04/06 16:07
I primarily use Reminders for recurring tasks. This app: *Has a poor interface for setting up date and time for reminders. *Doesn’t have options for recurrence on specific days of the month (e.g. 3rd Saturday, first Tuesday, etc.). * takes multiple steps to complete the task from the Home Screen -swipe, press view, select completed. * If you do not complete the task, it does not notify of the next recurrence. Ideally, swipe and pressing clear word complete the task.
Excellent Way to Stay Organized
by Gabrielle901 on 2021/04/05 13:53
Love the ability to connect an email to a task, and create the task directly from the email. Really helps me stay on top of things.
I love this app!
by this app annoyjng af on 2021/04/05 13:05
The design is *chef’s kiss* 😂. Use it daily!
Still prefer Wunderlist
by AsiaUser on 2021/04/04 06:00
Microsoft To Do is ok: it keeps shopping and task lists updates, is easy to share, and has recurring tasks. But it does none of that better than the old Wunderlist and I even lost some functionality like auto alphabetized lists which I loved. I and many others lobbied to get that back in the feature suggestions forum during the Wunderlist phase out but it fell on deaf ears. One thing Microsoft could have improved on is the ability to move a task to another list or clone a task but I’ve seen none of that happening yet. I actually am a fan of other Microsoft products but this takeover of Wunderlist was a disappointment. Unfortunately I don’t have time to learn another to do app so I am still using this due to inertia.
Still no multiple sign-in
by Transatlantix on 2021/04/03 16:57
I need to be able to sign in on two enterprise Teams. Why is that so difficult for MS to enable?
No Alexa Integration
by rocketman72 on 2021/04/02 21:34
No Alexa Integration
Very loud
by JamesGecko on 2021/04/02 06:38
Checking off a todo item makes a chime using the system notification volume, not the normal system volume. My notification volume is loud, so this is pretty obnoxious.
Decrease volume of task completion sound
by czettl on 2021/04/01 12:12
This is a great resource, but there’s no way for me to change the volume of the satisfying ‘ding’ sound when I complete a task and it’s incredibly loud. Please incorporate the volume settings of the app to that of the phone system/overall device notification volume settings
Perfect list
by 𝕗𝕠𝕟𝕥-𝕥𝕒𝕤𝕥𝕚𝕔 on 2021/04/01 00:26
It is so easy to use and I keep everything I need to remember on it. If you ever are looking for an easy app to make lists on, this is it.
Glitchy, slow, crashes periodically
by kzoyxpyxlz on 2021/03/30 22:59
Scrolling is laggy, checking things on the list is laggy and sometimes takes a few seconds to “catch up.” Sometimes every item I added in the last few minutes ends up duplicated for no reason. Every now and then it simply crashes. Performance is poor for a simple list app.
Excellent tool
by Rich van Oordt on 2021/03/30 17:59
Great tool to keep me organized and on task
Great
by Robinwass on 2021/03/29 23:00
Easy to use
Missing link
by Alanzlove on 2021/03/29 13:30
ToDo seems like the thing I needed to have my Outlook tasks on my phone. I’m still learning to use it. The next great feature I would love to see is to have the outlook categories in ToDo.
Easy to use buy need some enhancements and bug fixes
by Kubota64 on 2021/03/28 20:32
It’s easy to use by need some enhancements like letting due day a week from the day, not just Sunday. Also sometimes didn’t remind some tasks
Outstanding
by RogerReviews on 2021/03/28 13:43
Easy to use and very detailed. Thank you
Needs the TIME
by sorry4ever on 2021/03/28 04:45
I love To Do. However, when I go to my Tasks, the Tasks aren’t showing what Time they are Due. In other words, the Tasks section (screen) shows a Task that is Due “Today” but it’s not showing “What Time” Today. Therefore, I am unsure of whether or not to mark it as completed. Maybe that’s the way the app is supposed to work? Or am I missing something? Thanks.
Microsoft login screen shows up over my tasks
by Fredschulz on 2021/03/28 00:34
On my iPhone when I start up the To Do app and I can see my tasks and then I Microsoft login screen swipe so crossed and wants me to use my Microsoft credentials to login. I use the credentials for where my email is located with several email accounts and still can’t get to the To Do stuff on my iPhone. Everything still works on my iPad. it’s gonna make “to do” from Microsoft not usable because I need to see what my tasks are on my phone when I’m away from the office or not on my iPad. These giant companies want their nose in everything you do is really ruining the feasibility of using these apps. What really peeves me in this case is my tasks are there and I can see them and then Microsoft budgets but in and wants my credentials. This happens even when I have my outlook email account which the to do list is attached to, open. Why does everything from Apple work and everything from Microsoft become a pain in the butt. One ends up spending too much time just trying to get the Microsoft stuff to work! The same is true with printers with Microsoft OS’s. With Apple printers just always work.
Alarm Sounds
by Sound Settings that I can hear on 2021/03/27 23:00
I would like to use this more often but there is no setting I can find to change the alert sound that catches my attention. I miss too many alerts with this to depend on it to help me out at the right time without staring at my phone
Notifications inconsistent, not fixed after years
by Nepping on 2021/03/27 18:12
Pls Microsoft fix this. Recurring items (daily in my case) notifications simply don't work all the time. Some do, most don't. Uninstall reinstall doesn't fix. Even deleting the item and recreating doesn't solve it. I get notified on Android and Windows just fine.
Great update!
by pianonurse on 2021/03/27 16:37
The problem I found yesterday is fixed today. Happy camper! 5 stars for having it pick up the theme settings from my PC. Bravo!
Very good replacement for wunderlist
by Fanagame on 2021/03/26 09:20
App is great, one feature request though : It would be awesome if we could add several items to the same list when sharing text from external apps Here’s my use case: I have a thermomix and use their official app to find recipes. Their app has their own embedded shopping list management, but I’m not interested in having 2 system to manage my shopping list. ToDo is more versatile and honestly just better at it. I can export the shopping list from CookieDoo but when I export it to ToDo, it only adds 1 item and places all the other ones as a comment on the 1st item, so it’s really useless! My example is specific to an app, but the core issue is really more general ! Would be awesome if you could improve this ! Thanks!
Needs multiple accounts
by edk012 on 2021/03/25 13:00
Since Microsoft Teams has the ability to switch between multiple business accounts I’m very surprised this is missing in To Do. A huge gap that should be addressed. Should include ability to use personal accounts as well.
PLEASE LET ME VIEW MY LIST ON MY APPLE WATCH
by imoldhelpme on 2021/03/25 11:06
I have this app on my Hp laptop and on my iPhone. I love that I can view it from both and I can add subtasks within a task and I can arrange my tasks in my own order! This app saves me in so many ways!... SO PLEASE ADD ACCESS THROUGH APPLE WATCH SO I CAN VIEW AND CHECK OFF MY TASKS! When I open my phone or laptop to do it I’m so much more likely to get distracted!
Garbage-Wasted 4 Hours
by Trench Hallway on 2021/03/25 10:54
I heavily use follow up flags with notes in them. This app overwrote my notes on most of them, caused duplications on the days on my to do list, and didn’t even have the functionality of what I needed to begin with. If you already use Outlook on your PC, do not get this app especially if you’re a heavy user of the follow flags. It will make you very sad.
‘My Day’ Items
by <======={{{{{ on 2021/03/24 23:32
Great app! I would give it a 5 star rating if only they would change how items goes away for the next day. I would like the functionality of the ‘My Day list’ items which didn’t get completed during that day, would stay in ‘My Day list’ and roll over to the morning so you don’t have to continually select them again each day. I have many items in all my combined lists for work; it becomes cumbersome to search out the items again each morning, just to pick up from where I was the previous day. This could even be a settings control for those whom don’t what it to operate this way. I would love to have the ability for this functionality.
Microsoft to do
by hotindeman on 2021/03/24 20:28
Beneficial to anyone who is planning out there day week or month!!! Such a great interface and allows some nice features!!! Completely enthralled with the outsole outcome of this application.
Not ready for prime time, far from it
by No ads preferred on 2021/03/24 13:16
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. Update 3/24/21: I started using To-Do again after a hiatus of several months using the “AnyDay” app on my iPhone and iPad. That app is iOS-only and I really needed an app that was integrated with Win10. So, back to “To-Do”. My impressions above came back to me in spades. Sorting ability is essentially non-existent. The To-Do app is an amateurish effort by a company with vast software development capability. If I were Microsoft, I would be ashamed of this app.
Multiple accounts
by blurrrjmac on 2021/03/24 01:55
The app has come a long way, but I’m struggling that I can’t separate my work and personal accounts (like on android). This feature would be amazing!
Backgrounds
by JGH224 on 2021/03/22 17:21
Need more background options. Otherwise great!
Frustration
by ian_pta on 2021/03/22 17:10
The inability to integrate partners from other domains has been and remains a major obstacle to this app leaving it far behind its predecessor and alternatives like Asana. I find the arrogance of not getting this sorted typical and unfortunate. Also, being unable to assign sub tasks is another very awkward constraint you would think Microsoft would sort.
Trouble sorting list items
by Whywontyouletmepickaname? on 2021/03/21 18:16
Don’t know if anyone else is having this issue but in all the recent versions of this app, I’m having maddening difficulty when sequencing items in a sublist. It’s difficult to move them to the top (long press and drag doesn’t usually cue a scroll up), and frequently they pop out of the sub-list and back to the parent list. It happens often enough to be a legit annoyance and yet another example of the switch from Wunderlist being terrible.
Sounds
by Brandonkey75000 on 2021/03/21 13:59
Even when I turn off the sounds in settings it still makes sounds when I check things off my list. People in the grocery store find it annoying.
No recurring reminders and app support site doesn’t work
by jen23225 on 2021/03/18 16:10
There may be recurring reminders (I.e. one day before) rather than having to pick a specific time and day that doesn’t automatically adjust for future recurring tasks, but the app support site doesn’t work so I don’t have a way to contact them to ask. Super frustrated. I really wanted to like this app and really don’t want to have to move my stuff to another one, but this is a deal breaker for me.
Repeats on list
by Jaglives123 on 2021/03/17 18:50
I have been using this app for about 2 years and before that I used Wunderlist. For some reason all of a sudden the app is annoying listing tasks twice that I only write in once. It’s doing it across all my devices. I love this app but am writing this review in hopes of Microsoft fix this bug. I have looked for an upgrade but no luck. Someone fix this glitch please!
Wunderlist was better
by Alison in Dallas on 2021/03/17 02:36
This app drives me crazy. It often erases what I’ve been writing mid task, so I have to start typing the whole thing over again. Then for the last two days, I couldn’t access my app on my iPhone at all, but I could on my computer. I typed the password in about a dozen times, but no luck. It kept telling me I didn’t have an Exchange account. 🤯 Wunderlist was better. I keep hoping To Do will live up to its promise because it is well integrated into MS Office, but so far, not so good.
Great app; needs better snooze options
by Macmom224 on 2021/03/16 17:26
I would love it if I could choose to snooze for 5 minutes, an hour or a day when a reminder comes up!
Screwed up Wunderlist
by Anton Webern on 2021/03/16 14:51
Why do I have to keep logging in over and over? This is not a bank. Why, when I click on a Todo list do I see “my day” instead of the Todo list? I would kill to have Wunderlist back.
Best Tasks app!
by InsidiouSpectre on 2021/03/15 17:45
Love this app. Thank you Microsoft for making a free, fully featured, cross-platform app that satisfies almost every requirement for a high quality tasks management app. Love the integration with other Microsoft Offic products as well. My only request is to allow multiple account support on iOS and the ability to change a task’s list as easily as you can on Windows in iOS as well (something as simple as what the Reminders app does would be great).
Simply Sophisticated
by BuilderCT1 on 2021/03/14 15:56
More sophisticated than other task lists I have used - and not immediately apparent until after using. Flexible. Fairly customizable. Love how “My Day” drops the tasks at the end of the day, but they remain in the main categorizes - fresh blank page each day. Can leave important tasks duplicated in “Important”. Works very well. 5 stars.
Not quite as good as Wonderlist
by Nanjip on 2021/03/12 14:39
This is very convenient but would be better if you could access and sync to an online version so that you could update your list either via smartphone or laptop.
With Smart lists, it’s as good as Wunderlist
by noob reviewer on 2021/03/12 07:21
To Do was lacking Smart lists before which allow you to see everything due today, tomorrow, this week, and this month. With this feature added, To Do is finally as good as Wunderlist. It’s hands down the best to do app out there - you get premium features for free.
Great idea, would love more fluidity
by office3446 on 2021/03/11 13:40
Love everything it offers. 2 things that would make it five stars for me: if it could notify me when a task is added and if the shared users could leave notes for each other
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 &amp; 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 &amp; 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.
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.
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&#39;t think both are necessary but my main issue is that it takes a while to delete items! If I&#39;ve completed a bunch of items then I have to spend several minutes deleting each one. Also, it&#39;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&#39;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&#39;t want to insert to the bottom of the list either. I&#39;m hoping these things will get fixed over time but so far I&#39;m enjoying the app!
So close to perfect! Needs location awareness/geofencing
by mikedoitunes on 2021/01/21 22:11
The way this functions and performs has the robustness, flexibility, dependability and platform-agnosticism to be a reliable personal task manager. It provides enough structure so one doesn’t need to think too much about where things go, yet isn’t too rigid where you feel like you need to work around limitations/restrictions. Works the same across all devices. Has rich-enough detail to use as a quick notes inbox w/ photo and file attachment included. Easy to add subtasks. Has alert and due dates as separate fields for fine tuned notifications. The only thing that needs to be added is geofence-based notifications so one can schedule alerts to be triggered when leaving or reaching a designated location. It would be great if this could also be combined with the alert times too, so you could schedule an notification for when you leave work only after 5:00pm. This feature is available in Apple reminders, and that comes really close to To Do minus the native app availability on other platforms. Microsoft, if you’re reading this, y’all have made the ultimate free task management app, and it has significantly improved my life. If you can add the geolocation features that would make this app perfect!
Not dependable, squirly
by nicujlc on 2020/11/10 19:17
Nowhere is there any clue about how it functions across different devices. On my iPhone if I just hit the screen the wrong way it can erase something, not even highlighting it at the time, and it deletes a whole line of information! There’s no way that I know of to long press or a menu screen at the top to “undo type”. There’s only the cut/copy/paste/select/select all and other and undo is NOT in that other list. As soon as I open the other device it sync’s to—- ZIP!! it’s gone too!!! I can’t tell you how many delicate pieces of information it’s deleted that way. The cursor gets stuck at the 2nd character from the left all the time and is hard to get the cursor over to the left without erasing a whole line. So some parts of the app aren’t very user-friendly for phone use. Having a confirmation conversation window before erasing something would be a nice feature. I wish it had the capability having visible notebook lines for organization. Lately it’s been duplicate self- re-typing in web addresses when I click on one that’s already been placed in there prior. Then unbeknownst to me I have 2 or 3 of them right on top of each other and have to backtrack out of them. On a phone this is tedious and time-consuming, let alone frustrating. Wunderlist never did this stuff.
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&#39;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&#39;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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
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&#39;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&#39;s great for multiple things like, goal tracking, to do, school work, and much more! I didn&#39;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&#39;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.
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.......
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
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!
A disaster
by Time to Sew on 2021/04/12 10:57
I loved the To Do app. I used it first when it was just Wunderlist. Then one day it would not allow me to log in on my computer. I changed the password so that I could log in, but then it would not allow me to log in on my phone with the new password! I over a thousand lines of text in that app. I called Microsoft support to see if they could solve my problem, but they just told me that they had no such app and had never heard of it and that I had to call the developer. The way I finally solved the problem—if you could call it a solution—was to screenshot all 68 pages of lists for safe keeping. Then, since I had access only on my computer, I started copying every line to Reminders on my iPhone instead. It has been two months now, and I have only had time to transfer three or four lists to reminders. These lists included notes to myself about starting my own business, and it would be a tremendous loss to lose this information. I will never use a second party list app again! I wish I could give it a negative 5 stars.
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!
could be better
by Jessesaint on 2020/01/03 09:12
A lot simpler and easier to use than OneNote for task, however I&#39;d really like the option to hide &#34;my day&#34;. I have zero interest in using it and would much rather have the mobile and desktop app&#39;s open into my first tab/ group. Please, it&#39;s always in the way and extremely annoying. Like OneNote, both apps need a trash can/ recently deleted, it&#39;s extremely careless for the developers not to include one as I&#39;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 &#34;are you sure you want to delete?&#34;, but it&#39;s not enough. Also can&#39;t figure out how to delete unintentional created groups in the mobile app, only on the desktop app... Okay? All around it&#39;s better then what&#39;s out there, just a few tedious important features missing for me to give it a complete five stars. also I don&#39;t know what your problem is, but if I take my time to drag and drop something it would be great if you didn&#39;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.)
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.
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.
Repeating Tasks Repeatedly Disappear
by quantumofsolace on 2019/02/12 19:06
In the couple of months I&#39;ve used the app, I&#39;ve had to re-enter repeating tasks several (3-4) times. It seems to only affect daily tasks but I&#39;m not 100 on that. At some point after I complete a repeating task, the app doesn&#39;t repopulate the task for the next iteration. So if I have a task that says &#34;go to the gym&#34; and I check it as completed, sometimes the task shows up the next day and sometimes it doesn&#39;t. I don&#39;t know exactly when this happens because it&#39;s hard to notice a single missing task. (At least for me –i have about 25 repeating tasks.) I assume there&#39;s a bug somewhere but it shouldn&#39;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&#39;ll stick with Wunderlist for the moment.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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&#39;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&#39;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 &#34;My Day&#34; feature. I can use that in tandem with my office&#39; 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 &#34;Create Task&#34;) I&#39;m excited to see where this goes as I wait patiently for the product to bake. Until then, three stars is about where it&#39;s at as of now--little more than a college student&#39;s obligatory first app.
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.

Convenient and Synchronized
by vali girl 09 on 2021/05/11 19:46
Provides a convenient means to track daily priorities and everyday lists such as groceries, shopping or other personal customized lists. The &#34;Daily To Do&#34; synchronizes and works seamlessly between my iPhone and MS 365 Outlook Tasks
Calendar is missing
by RezzzzzzAr on 2021/05/11 06:24
It’s a to-do app and designed to help people organizing their daily tasks, businesses and, etc. How is it even possible without a calendar? A built-in calendar with iOS calendar integration is necessary, please take a look at the “suggest a feature” section of your website, it has been years since people asking for a calendar. I give one star for now, although it deserves five stars even without a calendar.
Would like to see Apple Watch integration
by puux3 on 2021/05/10 15:07
I love this app and use it daily. Would love to see an integration for Apple Watch.
Such a disappointment
by JFJiii on 2021/05/10 11:29
Takes Microsoft forever to program improvements No control over subtasks No creativity Very basic with no edge over other To Do programs
Great when you have workers
by Lookproperty on 2021/05/10 02:46
This app is simple enough that my workers can use to determine what I would like them to accomplish.
Grocery list
by sam0159 on 2021/05/09 16:53
It’s great. No carrying a piece of paper &amp; pen. The fact that alphabetized is even better. Thanks.
NotThe best
by samanthaking2012 on 2021/05/09 11:49
Every morning, my recurring tasks revert to The previous week. Really annoying to have to go through them every day and readjust the due date.
Love this app!!! Connects my Apple tasks too!!!
by Advoc84others on 2021/05/08 01:29
Great for work and home! Simple easy to use.
Best app ever
by Dandalar on 2021/05/06 17:15
This app is such a wonderful tool. When my wife and I do food shopping we can both go in different directions and check off items on the list that we share. Cut’s or time in the store way down. In and Out, in a snap.
Limit file size
by cmkpsl on 2021/05/06 14:09
You have a 25mb limit to file sizes for each list, that mean if I add 4 pictures at 8 mb I’m done?!?! Why??? The only thing you have done by limiting the file size is make me creat multiple lists just for pictures. What advantage was gained for you our the user.?
Organization at its best!
by Saint Holliday on 2021/05/05 17:52
This is such a great tool for organizing life in general it has so many little features for organizing your work schedule or family time it’s amazing.To-Do allows you to create task straight from your email, set reminders, and completely own your day!
Wow
by EOOW on 2021/05/04 01:50
Finally this app has exceeded everything I need in a task manager.
Keeps me organized
by Gypsy Gardener on 2021/05/03 01:34
I have a list for each store I go to: groceries, Costco, hardware, Trader Joe’s, etc. really helps me not forget what I need at each store. Have one for packing for travel so I don’t forget the phone charger, etc. One list for recommendations for movies books and pod casts. Handy app to have
Cool thanks
by Bomber Babies on 2021/05/02 23:47
Nice
Solid
by Floopspoon on 2021/05/01 20:33
Overall a solid app, although there are a few areas for improvement.
Love it but have had issues
by Mama Tietz on 2021/05/01 13:27
I love the organization possibilities with this app but I am giving only 3 stars because 2 days ago, I opened a list and half of it was gone. I was really annoyed by it and immediately transferred what was left to paper. After closing and reopening the app, the list reappeared. This was not the first time this happened. It has also happened with notes.
Mostly good
by VectorZ on 2021/04/29 20:56
Please add an undo option and auto delete completed tasks option.
Does everything I need
by Evix4n9hu on 2021/04/29 05:25
It’s really nice to have the lists able to organize by steps and group tasks into sections. Optional notifications and reminders really help me get stuff done on time :)
To Do
by anowicki on 2021/04/29 01:04
I like where Microsoft is heading with To Do. I wish it was possible to create a legit To Do by sending a full email to To Do item, not just creating a To Do flag. I also wish it was easier to create a To Do from a Teams message.
When you use it it’s great!
by Wendi Olmstead on 2021/04/27 14:40
I love how easy it is to use, if you don’t get to something on your daily list it suggests it for the next day without having to retype, for recurring lists like packing for a trip...you can reuse the list without having to create a new list adding or deleting each time. A+ in my book.
Doesn’t Sync
by @JayP203 on 2021/04/24 01:30
The app design is great, but the point is to share the list with others and it should update the list to get everyone it’s shared with. We tried using it in our company and the lists were never the same on everyone’s phone. It doesn’t work too well if everyone doesn’t get the list updated as things are added or removed.
No multi account support 3 years later
by aloshka09 on 2021/04/22 19:34
Been 3 years later and still no multi account support like promised and on Android. Not an os limitation.
Different signing
by ez202010 on 2021/04/22 07:04
Hard to sign in and sync with other email.
Works Well!
by seoulbrotha on 2021/04/21 16:44
No complaints!
Sorting Needs Some Creativity
by rexrox2 on 2021/04/20 23:54
ToDo is a pretty good task organizer but it lacks 1 user feature that MS One Note has. The ability to manually sort or arrange the list by dragging a task from one location to another within the list. If ToDo had a grouping feature and/or manual sorting feature, it would help tremendously. As a simple example, if you want to organize a grocery shopping list to reflect the layout of the store, there does not seem to be a straightforward way to do this in To Do. In One Note, you can simply drag a task (grocery item) next to other like items effectively creating a group such that all the frozen items are together, veggies are together, etc.
No email notification
by Applecrazyfunfun on 2021/04/19 13:20
Come on! Why it is so hard for you to bring back the email notification feature on Wunderlist!!!!!!!! Will not use it until this feature is back.
Lost my lists!!
by AKCamperDude on 2021/04/19 13:13
Very feature complete app, but recent update 2.41 completed locked me out due to having a (completely legal) jailbroken device...this is MY device and not a work phone or enterprise account. Horrendous.
Excellent.
by DSC IaaS on 2021/04/18 22:46
Excellent. Need to receive assigned tasks on my iPad too
No more support for Alexa
by Bakk487 on 2021/04/18 10:25
This app has never been as good as Wunderlist, and removing support for Alexa is going to require me to go find another app. Very disappointing.
Under featured in comparison
by dano3006 on 2021/04/17 14:15
This is a decent To Do app to start with unless you have used others and need more features. Also can be very finicky in setting up with Microsoft cloud, which is necessary if it is to span multiple devices.
app doesnt update days in order
by Ledleedleedleedleedle on 2021/04/17 12:21
I spend 45 minutes setting it up only for it to bot work the next day in order.
No updates on for desktop.
by musicwiz123 on 2021/04/17 05:37
To do decide not to update High Sierra. So since I am updating the iOS it will eventually not work. Please make the Updates compatible with high Sierra.
Perfect for a family
by Jenngoodsarg on 2021/04/17 00:13
Our immediate family uses this app to share grocery lists, Costco lists, Target lists, pharmacy lists, etc. When Wunderlust was bought by Microsoft and turned into “To Do,” there was initially some pain involved with migrating lists and resharing. That’s all been fixed and it’s been smooth sailing for the past year. Highly recommend.
Lacking so many important features
by GoMechy on 2021/04/16 23:11
It’s hard to know where to start, but anyone who uses Outlook will recognize that this Task app is sorely lacking. I can only assume (and hope) that Microsoft is well aware of the many, many flaws and inadequacies in this tool. If not, please pay attention... We love Outlook. We live with Outlook Tasks everyday, all day long. We want the same features in a mobile version. Best of luck delivering on this...as soon as possible, please!!
Please update
by Kattylizabeth on 2021/04/16 15:21
I’d much prefer this app if there was a widget for my phone and if it was compatible with my Apple Watch. But other than that, I love the organization of the app and how smoothly it runs.
DO NOT USE
by Amyjwll on 2021/04/15 20:30
App froze! I’ve lost everything. I can not open any of my files. Wonderlist was so much better!! I’m warning you do NOT USE THIS APP! You will regret it!
Time zone bug?
by f'ness on 2021/04/14 12:33
I still see “my day” as yesterday and can’t add tasks to today. Not sure when this will change but it’s been really annoying not being able to plan my day until around 1pm. App doesn’t work.
Lost all my information
by K17925 on 2021/04/14 02:12
I have used Microsoft to do since it took over Wunderlist. One day it just stopped working, because the company decided they were just going to stop supporting this component of my school’s office 365 subscription. They stopped without any warning and I lost all the information I had stored on there and no way to get to it. I had information on there that I need and no way to get to it, at all.
No longer works with Alexa- TERRIBLE change
by Carolina Meerkat on 2021/04/13 18:17
Really disappointed they’ve removed the ability to link this to Alexa. Hope they get enough feedback to bring this back. For now I guess I’ll have to find another list app
Not accessible with voiceover
by HoustonGay on 2021/04/13 17:34
I can insert the task name, choose the reminder and due dates but I cannot save or even cancel the task using voiceover. What’s the point? Between this app and the desktop App, this is totally unusable
Key tool for staying focused
by berko45 on 2021/04/13 17:11
I love the My Day functionality. It really helps me keep my eye on the priorities. I get more accomplished with this app across all my devices
A disaster
by Time to Sew on 2021/04/12 10:57
I loved the To Do app. I used it first when it was just Wunderlist. Then one day it would not allow me to log in on my computer. I changed the password so that I could log in, but then it would not allow me to log in on my phone with the new password! I over a thousand lines of text in that app. I called Microsoft support to see if they could solve my problem, but they just told me that they had no such app and had never heard of it and that I had to call the developer. The way I finally solved the problem—if you could call it a solution—was to screenshot all 68 pages of lists for safe keeping. Then, since I had access only on my computer, I started copying every line to Reminders on my iPhone instead. It has been two months now, and I have only had time to transfer three or four lists to reminders. These lists included notes to myself about starting my own business, and it would be a tremendous loss to lose this information. I will never use a second party list app again! I wish I could give it a negative 5 stars.
Discriminates against jailbreakers
by Marvive on 2021/04/11 20:20
Jailbreakers aren’t able to use this app. It’s a to do list app. Not a game. Why do they fear someone hacking it?
Excellent task app
by Laprosky on 2021/04/10 19:57
Tried so many task apps to find the best one. Wunderlist was it for me. Then they migrated to ToDo and after a hiccup with sorting, it has surpassed the original.
Basic list app
by Liast on 2021/04/09 05:36
This is a helpful, but basic list app. Basic is good. But I really wish I were able to move tasks up and down within a list or to another list. I would also like the starred items to automatically move to the top.
No multi account support for business and personal
by Jared60000 on 2021/04/08 23:01
Update: still crippled by only one account, keeping work and personal tasks fragmented. Get it together. For real. I can only use one account? Update that and I’ll use it. I can’t believe you didn’t build that in for IOS users. It’s really sad.
Everything i need for a task list.
by kranky konsumer on 2021/04/08 12:34
Microsoft finally incorporated the best features of Wunderlist into ToDo. This is my first stop in the morning and helps me prioritize my day. Outlook integration also is a plus.
Need ability to switch between multiple accts
by T3chnicolor on 2021/04/08 01:41
I am hoping you add support for switching between multiple accounts, like you can on the Windows 10 app. This feature would allow me to switch over to MS To Do exclusively as the only app I’d use for todos. Currently I use one for work and one for personal. If I can add two accounts to the mobile app, it would be a game changer.
Missing functionality
by dongone on 2021/04/07 22:29
The aggravating thing about Microsoft apps for iOS and Mac is the lack of feature parity with Windows. Something as simple as the category for a task is available on Windows, but not on iOS. This cripples the app if used with Windows users because there are features that are missing, hard to find, or read-only. It would be great if Microsoft would live by the principle of all relevant features on all platforms. I was really hopeful that this could replace OmniFocus so that I could have task sharing with teammates, but it is a sad and broken imitation.
Stopped working with Alexa
by Jfm1976 on 2021/04/07 15:22
I want a list app that syncs with my Alexa lists, but now this one stopped doing that.
Please fix the bugs
by Mehrdad Wanderer on 2021/04/07 14:59
After the latest update, I don’t receive notification on a planned to-do item. My notification settings are all on, my iPhone is on the latest software, and so is the app. I tried it several times and put random items. I set the “remind me at x o’clock” and see the bell sign next to the item but no notifications.
I love this app!!!
by 606shadow707 on 2021/04/07 14:45
But if you can put the time when the next day begin that will be good
Took a great product and made it a pain
by Swanie5326 on 2021/04/07 13:54
I had Wunderlist for years and found it very easy to use. I easily shared a grocery list, and others, with my wife. From the day it became To Do, it has been a pain. It started with problems trying to login, continued with never sharing content added to lists, briefly worked properly and is now back to not allowing me to log in. I keep getting a message that says I must have a student or government account. Why? Don’t know and don’t care. Tired of messing with it.
Please add daily reminders
by myhandsfaeq on 2021/04/07 13:42
Please please please please
Multiple Accounts
by xishaan35 on 2021/04/07 10:06
No way to juggy around work and personal accounts. Android gets it, why nit iOS? Not fair. Want multiple accounts support in iOS app.
Almost there
by Ricsof on 2021/04/07 09:43
Wishing it will Gad a Siri short cut to be able to give 5 stars. This has great interface with outlook.
Horrible
by CelticMormon on 2021/04/07 03:32
Every other to-do app puts today tasks automatically in today list depending on date. Not this one. Create your tasks then each day go thru extra steps of placing in today tab. Worst to-do app on the narket
Poor support for recurring tasks
by Doug M 643787644 on 2021/04/06 16:07
I primarily use Reminders for recurring tasks. This app: *Has a poor interface for setting up date and time for reminders. *Doesn’t have options for recurrence on specific days of the month (e.g. 3rd Saturday, first Tuesday, etc.). * takes multiple steps to complete the task from the Home Screen -swipe, press view, select completed. * If you do not complete the task, it does not notify of the next recurrence. Ideally, swipe and pressing clear word complete the task.
Excellent Way to Stay Organized
by Gabrielle901 on 2021/04/05 13:53
Love the ability to connect an email to a task, and create the task directly from the email. Really helps me stay on top of things.
I love this app!
by this app annoyjng af on 2021/04/05 13:05
The design is *chef’s kiss* 😂. Use it daily!
Still prefer Wunderlist
by AsiaUser on 2021/04/04 06:00
Microsoft To Do is ok: it keeps shopping and task lists updates, is easy to share, and has recurring tasks. But it does none of that better than the old Wunderlist and I even lost some functionality like auto alphabetized lists which I loved. I and many others lobbied to get that back in the feature suggestions forum during the Wunderlist phase out but it fell on deaf ears. One thing Microsoft could have improved on is the ability to move a task to another list or clone a task but I’ve seen none of that happening yet. I actually am a fan of other Microsoft products but this takeover of Wunderlist was a disappointment. Unfortunately I don’t have time to learn another to do app so I am still using this due to inertia.
Still no multiple sign-in
by Transatlantix on 2021/04/03 16:57
I need to be able to sign in on two enterprise Teams. Why is that so difficult for MS to enable?
No Alexa Integration
by rocketman72 on 2021/04/02 21:34
No Alexa Integration
Very loud
by JamesGecko on 2021/04/02 06:38
Checking off a todo item makes a chime using the system notification volume, not the normal system volume. My notification volume is loud, so this is pretty obnoxious.
Decrease volume of task completion sound
by czettl on 2021/04/01 12:12
This is a great resource, but there’s no way for me to change the volume of the satisfying ‘ding’ sound when I complete a task and it’s incredibly loud. Please incorporate the volume settings of the app to that of the phone system/overall device notification volume settings
Perfect list
by 𝕗𝕠𝕟𝕥-𝕥𝕒𝕤𝕥𝕚𝕔 on 2021/04/01 00:26
It is so easy to use and I keep everything I need to remember on it. If you ever are looking for an easy app to make lists on, this is it.
Glitchy, slow, crashes periodically
by kzoyxpyxlz on 2021/03/30 22:59
Scrolling is laggy, checking things on the list is laggy and sometimes takes a few seconds to “catch up.” Sometimes every item I added in the last few minutes ends up duplicated for no reason. Every now and then it simply crashes. Performance is poor for a simple list app.
Excellent tool
by Rich van Oordt on 2021/03/30 17:59
Great tool to keep me organized and on task
Great
by Robinwass on 2021/03/29 23:00
Easy to use
Missing link
by Alanzlove on 2021/03/29 13:30
ToDo seems like the thing I needed to have my Outlook tasks on my phone. I’m still learning to use it. The next great feature I would love to see is to have the outlook categories in ToDo.
Easy to use buy need some enhancements and bug fixes
by Kubota64 on 2021/03/28 20:32
It’s easy to use by need some enhancements like letting due day a week from the day, not just Sunday. Also sometimes didn’t remind some tasks
Outstanding
by RogerReviews on 2021/03/28 13:43
Easy to use and very detailed. Thank you
Needs the TIME
by sorry4ever on 2021/03/28 04:45
I love To Do. However, when I go to my Tasks, the Tasks aren’t showing what Time they are Due. In other words, the Tasks section (screen) shows a Task that is Due “Today” but it’s not showing “What Time” Today. Therefore, I am unsure of whether or not to mark it as completed. Maybe that’s the way the app is supposed to work? Or am I missing something? Thanks.
Microsoft login screen shows up over my tasks
by Fredschulz on 2021/03/28 00:34
On my iPhone when I start up the To Do app and I can see my tasks and then I Microsoft login screen swipe so crossed and wants me to use my Microsoft credentials to login. I use the credentials for where my email is located with several email accounts and still can’t get to the To Do stuff on my iPhone. Everything still works on my iPad. it’s gonna make “to do” from Microsoft not usable because I need to see what my tasks are on my phone when I’m away from the office or not on my iPad. These giant companies want their nose in everything you do is really ruining the feasibility of using these apps. What really peeves me in this case is my tasks are there and I can see them and then Microsoft budgets but in and wants my credentials. This happens even when I have my outlook email account which the to do list is attached to, open. Why does everything from Apple work and everything from Microsoft become a pain in the butt. One ends up spending too much time just trying to get the Microsoft stuff to work! The same is true with printers with Microsoft OS’s. With Apple printers just always work.
Alarm Sounds
by Sound Settings that I can hear on 2021/03/27 23:00
I would like to use this more often but there is no setting I can find to change the alert sound that catches my attention. I miss too many alerts with this to depend on it to help me out at the right time without staring at my phone
Notifications inconsistent, not fixed after years
by Nepping on 2021/03/27 18:12
Pls Microsoft fix this. Recurring items (daily in my case) notifications simply don&#39;t work all the time. Some do, most don&#39;t. Uninstall reinstall doesn&#39;t fix. Even deleting the item and recreating doesn&#39;t solve it. I get notified on Android and Windows just fine.
Great update!
by pianonurse on 2021/03/27 16:37
The problem I found yesterday is fixed today. Happy camper! 5 stars for having it pick up the theme settings from my PC. Bravo!
Very good replacement for wunderlist
by Fanagame on 2021/03/26 09:20
App is great, one feature request though : It would be awesome if we could add several items to the same list when sharing text from external apps Here’s my use case: I have a thermomix and use their official app to find recipes. Their app has their own embedded shopping list management, but I’m not interested in having 2 system to manage my shopping list. ToDo is more versatile and honestly just better at it. I can export the shopping list from CookieDoo but when I export it to ToDo, it only adds 1 item and places all the other ones as a comment on the 1st item, so it’s really useless! My example is specific to an app, but the core issue is really more general ! Would be awesome if you could improve this ! Thanks!
Needs multiple accounts
by edk012 on 2021/03/25 13:00
Since Microsoft Teams has the ability to switch between multiple business accounts I’m very surprised this is missing in To Do. A huge gap that should be addressed. Should include ability to use personal accounts as well.
PLEASE LET ME VIEW MY LIST ON MY APPLE WATCH
by imoldhelpme on 2021/03/25 11:06
I have this app on my Hp laptop and on my iPhone. I love that I can view it from both and I can add subtasks within a task and I can arrange my tasks in my own order! This app saves me in so many ways!... SO PLEASE ADD ACCESS THROUGH APPLE WATCH SO I CAN VIEW AND CHECK OFF MY TASKS! When I open my phone or laptop to do it I’m so much more likely to get distracted!
Garbage-Wasted 4 Hours
by Trench Hallway on 2021/03/25 10:54
I heavily use follow up flags with notes in them. This app overwrote my notes on most of them, caused duplications on the days on my to do list, and didn’t even have the functionality of what I needed to begin with. If you already use Outlook on your PC, do not get this app especially if you’re a heavy user of the follow flags. It will make you very sad.
‘My Day’ Items
by <======={{{{{ on 2021/03/24 23:32
Great app! I would give it a 5 star rating if only they would change how items goes away for the next day. I would like the functionality of the ‘My Day list’ items which didn’t get completed during that day, would stay in ‘My Day list’ and roll over to the morning so you don’t have to continually select them again each day. I have many items in all my combined lists for work; it becomes cumbersome to search out the items again each morning, just to pick up from where I was the previous day. This could even be a settings control for those whom don’t what it to operate this way. I would love to have the ability for this functionality.
Microsoft to do
by hotindeman on 2021/03/24 20:28
Beneficial to anyone who is planning out there day week or month!!! Such a great interface and allows some nice features!!! Completely enthralled with the outsole outcome of this application.
Not ready for prime time, far from it
by No ads preferred on 2021/03/24 13:16
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. Update 3/24/21: I started using To-Do again after a hiatus of several months using the “AnyDay” app on my iPhone and iPad. That app is iOS-only and I really needed an app that was integrated with Win10. So, back to “To-Do”. My impressions above came back to me in spades. Sorting ability is essentially non-existent. The To-Do app is an amateurish effort by a company with vast software development capability. If I were Microsoft, I would be ashamed of this app.
Multiple accounts
by blurrrjmac on 2021/03/24 01:55
The app has come a long way, but I’m struggling that I can’t separate my work and personal accounts (like on android). This feature would be amazing!
Backgrounds
by JGH224 on 2021/03/22 17:21
Need more background options. Otherwise great!
Frustration
by ian_pta on 2021/03/22 17:10
The inability to integrate partners from other domains has been and remains a major obstacle to this app leaving it far behind its predecessor and alternatives like Asana. I find the arrogance of not getting this sorted typical and unfortunate. Also, being unable to assign sub tasks is another very awkward constraint you would think Microsoft would sort.
Trouble sorting list items
by Whywontyouletmepickaname? on 2021/03/21 18:16
Don’t know if anyone else is having this issue but in all the recent versions of this app, I’m having maddening difficulty when sequencing items in a sublist. It’s difficult to move them to the top (long press and drag doesn’t usually cue a scroll up), and frequently they pop out of the sub-list and back to the parent list. It happens often enough to be a legit annoyance and yet another example of the switch from Wunderlist being terrible.
Sounds
by Brandonkey75000 on 2021/03/21 13:59
Even when I turn off the sounds in settings it still makes sounds when I check things off my list. People in the grocery store find it annoying.
No recurring reminders and app support site doesn’t work
by jen23225 on 2021/03/18 16:10
There may be recurring reminders (I.e. one day before) rather than having to pick a specific time and day that doesn’t automatically adjust for future recurring tasks, but the app support site doesn’t work so I don’t have a way to contact them to ask. Super frustrated. I really wanted to like this app and really don’t want to have to move my stuff to another one, but this is a deal breaker for me.
Repeats on list
by Jaglives123 on 2021/03/17 18:50
I have been using this app for about 2 years and before that I used Wunderlist. For some reason all of a sudden the app is annoying listing tasks twice that I only write in once. It’s doing it across all my devices. I love this app but am writing this review in hopes of Microsoft fix this bug. I have looked for an upgrade but no luck. Someone fix this glitch please!
Wunderlist was better
by Alison in Dallas on 2021/03/17 02:36
This app drives me crazy. It often erases what I’ve been writing mid task, so I have to start typing the whole thing over again. Then for the last two days, I couldn’t access my app on my iPhone at all, but I could on my computer. I typed the password in about a dozen times, but no luck. It kept telling me I didn’t have an Exchange account. 🤯 Wunderlist was better. I keep hoping To Do will live up to its promise because it is well integrated into MS Office, but so far, not so good.
Great app; needs better snooze options
by Macmom224 on 2021/03/16 17:26
I would love it if I could choose to snooze for 5 minutes, an hour or a day when a reminder comes up!
Screwed up Wunderlist
by Anton Webern on 2021/03/16 14:51
Why do I have to keep logging in over and over? This is not a bank. Why, when I click on a Todo list do I see “my day” instead of the Todo list? I would kill to have Wunderlist back.
Best Tasks app!
by InsidiouSpectre on 2021/03/15 17:45
Love this app. Thank you Microsoft for making a free, fully featured, cross-platform app that satisfies almost every requirement for a high quality tasks management app. Love the integration with other Microsoft Offic products as well. My only request is to allow multiple account support on iOS and the ability to change a task’s list as easily as you can on Windows in iOS as well (something as simple as what the Reminders app does would be great).
Simply Sophisticated
by BuilderCT1 on 2021/03/14 15:56
More sophisticated than other task lists I have used - and not immediately apparent until after using. Flexible. Fairly customizable. Love how “My Day” drops the tasks at the end of the day, but they remain in the main categorizes - fresh blank page each day. Can leave important tasks duplicated in “Important”. Works very well. 5 stars.
Not quite as good as Wonderlist
by Nanjip on 2021/03/12 14:39
This is very convenient but would be better if you could access and sync to an online version so that you could update your list either via smartphone or laptop.
With Smart lists, it’s as good as Wunderlist
by noob reviewer on 2021/03/12 07:21
To Do was lacking Smart lists before which allow you to see everything due today, tomorrow, this week, and this month. With this feature added, To Do is finally as good as Wunderlist. It’s hands down the best to do app out there - you get premium features for free.
Great idea, would love more fluidity
by office3446 on 2021/03/11 13:40
Love everything it offers. 2 things that would make it five stars for me: if it could notify me when a task is added and if the shared users could leave notes for each other
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 &amp; 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 &amp; 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.
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.
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&#39;t think both are necessary but my main issue is that it takes a while to delete items! If I&#39;ve completed a bunch of items then I have to spend several minutes deleting each one. Also, it&#39;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&#39;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&#39;t want to insert to the bottom of the list either. I&#39;m hoping these things will get fixed over time but so far I&#39;m enjoying the app!
So close to perfect! Needs location awareness/geofencing
by mikedoitunes on 2021/01/21 22:11
The way this functions and performs has the robustness, flexibility, dependability and platform-agnosticism to be a reliable personal task manager. It provides enough structure so one doesn’t need to think too much about where things go, yet isn’t too rigid where you feel like you need to work around limitations/restrictions. Works the same across all devices. Has rich-enough detail to use as a quick notes inbox w/ photo and file attachment included. Easy to add subtasks. Has alert and due dates as separate fields for fine tuned notifications. The only thing that needs to be added is geofence-based notifications so one can schedule alerts to be triggered when leaving or reaching a designated location. It would be great if this could also be combined with the alert times too, so you could schedule an notification for when you leave work only after 5:00pm. This feature is available in Apple reminders, and that comes really close to To Do minus the native app availability on other platforms. Microsoft, if you’re reading this, y’all have made the ultimate free task management app, and it has significantly improved my life. If you can add the geolocation features that would make this app perfect!
Not dependable, squirly
by nicujlc on 2020/11/10 19:17
Nowhere is there any clue about how it functions across different devices. On my iPhone if I just hit the screen the wrong way it can erase something, not even highlighting it at the time, and it deletes a whole line of information! There’s no way that I know of to long press or a menu screen at the top to “undo type”. There’s only the cut/copy/paste/select/select all and other and undo is NOT in that other list. As soon as I open the other device it sync’s to—- ZIP!! it’s gone too!!! I can’t tell you how many delicate pieces of information it’s deleted that way. The cursor gets stuck at the 2nd character from the left all the time and is hard to get the cursor over to the left without erasing a whole line. So some parts of the app aren’t very user-friendly for phone use. Having a confirmation conversation window before erasing something would be a nice feature. I wish it had the capability having visible notebook lines for organization. Lately it’s been duplicate self- re-typing in web addresses when I click on one that’s already been placed in there prior. Then unbeknownst to me I have 2 or 3 of them right on top of each other and have to backtrack out of them. On a phone this is tedious and time-consuming, let alone frustrating. Wunderlist never did this stuff.
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&#39;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&#39;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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
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&#39;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&#39;s great for multiple things like, goal tracking, to do, school work, and much more! I didn&#39;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&#39;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.
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.......
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
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!
A disaster
by Time to Sew on 2021/04/12 10:57
I loved the To Do app. I used it first when it was just Wunderlist. Then one day it would not allow me to log in on my computer. I changed the password so that I could log in, but then it would not allow me to log in on my phone with the new password! I over a thousand lines of text in that app. I called Microsoft support to see if they could solve my problem, but they just told me that they had no such app and had never heard of it and that I had to call the developer. The way I finally solved the problem—if you could call it a solution—was to screenshot all 68 pages of lists for safe keeping. Then, since I had access only on my computer, I started copying every line to Reminders on my iPhone instead. It has been two months now, and I have only had time to transfer three or four lists to reminders. These lists included notes to myself about starting my own business, and it would be a tremendous loss to lose this information. I will never use a second party list app again! I wish I could give it a negative 5 stars.
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!
could be better
by Jessesaint on 2020/01/03 09:12
A lot simpler and easier to use than OneNote for task, however I&#39;d really like the option to hide &#34;my day&#34;. I have zero interest in using it and would much rather have the mobile and desktop app&#39;s open into my first tab/ group. Please, it&#39;s always in the way and extremely annoying. Like OneNote, both apps need a trash can/ recently deleted, it&#39;s extremely careless for the developers not to include one as I&#39;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 &#34;are you sure you want to delete?&#34;, but it&#39;s not enough. Also can&#39;t figure out how to delete unintentional created groups in the mobile app, only on the desktop app... Okay? All around it&#39;s better then what&#39;s out there, just a few tedious important features missing for me to give it a complete five stars. also I don&#39;t know what your problem is, but if I take my time to drag and drop something it would be great if you didn&#39;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.)
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.
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.
Repeating Tasks Repeatedly Disappear
by quantumofsolace on 2019/02/12 19:06
In the couple of months I&#39;ve used the app, I&#39;ve had to re-enter repeating tasks several (3-4) times. It seems to only affect daily tasks but I&#39;m not 100 on that. At some point after I complete a repeating task, the app doesn&#39;t repopulate the task for the next iteration. So if I have a task that says &#34;go to the gym&#34; and I check it as completed, sometimes the task shows up the next day and sometimes it doesn&#39;t. I don&#39;t know exactly when this happens because it&#39;s hard to notice a single missing task. (At least for me –i have about 25 repeating tasks.) I assume there&#39;s a bug somewhere but it shouldn&#39;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&#39;ll stick with Wunderlist for the moment.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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&#39;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&#39;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 &#34;My Day&#34; feature. I can use that in tandem with my office&#39; 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 &#34;Create Task&#34;) I&#39;m excited to see where this goes as I wait patiently for the product to bake. Until then, three stars is about where it&#39;s at as of now--little more than a college student&#39;s obligatory first app.
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.
