Great Productivity and Organizational Tool!
by Logoyo on 2021/09/19 23:08
This app has been a game changer for helping me stay on top of the many things I have to remember to do. I would make a suggestion: it would be great if I could see in the list view the frequency of the repeat on items where I have that set. Other than that, I would not change a thing. Thanks for making such a great tool available for productivity!

Bug: Add a task

When trying to make edits while adding a task, the cursor returns to the end of the text after each keystroke. This is very frustrating!

NEEDS TO BE A WIDGET

Not for . Many annoyances
by marchetype on 2021/09/14 21:49
Update 9/2021: ToDo just doesn’t fit in nicely in the Apple ecosystem, be it on iPhone, iPad, or Mac: having to login with a Microsoft-specific account and email address AND being forced to re-login often is not a friendly user experience. Earlier review: Still far behind Wunderlist. Can’t believe Microsoft shut down that app down in the belief that ToDo was ready to replace it. Some of the deficiencies: 1. Can’t display notification badges. 2. Tasks due today don’t show up in My Day. 3. No way to filter tasks by due date (eg tasks due this week). 4. No calendar integration to display tasks by due date on your calendar. 5. Can’t login with 2FA on Microsoft account. 6. Share sheet doesn’t support adding due or reminder dates.
The best.

Works if u use it alone . As soon as u share w another dont bother find another app.
Just a suggestion
by minniemechan on 2021/09/13 18:56
And I’m sure this is already being worked on. After all, y’all are the experts. But everything about this app is amazing. As I’m diving into more commitments, it’s definitely helping me keep everything in order, and I love that it shows my day and what I have to accomplish that day. But Siri integration is the one thing that would make this app SOAR above the rest. Instead she just adds tasks to my iPhone calendar and I have to go back and manually enter them in TODO. I love it but can’t wait till I can tell Siri to set a task for me.
Best ToDo app integrated with M365
by goodtimes4days on 2021/09/13 16:16
The app is integrated with Outlook to flag emails for follow up and allows plenty of flexibility for individual task management. For teams, it integrates with the Planner app, which is the best place for collaboration of multiple tasks within the Teams app ecosystem.
Keeps getting better
by sail 767 on 2021/09/13 15:49
I loved Wunderlist. But I have to admit I like Microsoft To Do even better. They took everything good from Wunderlist and keep adding improvements.
Great App - More Details Please
by Fred Aebli on 2021/09/13 12:05
I have been bouncing between several apps and approaches to my day. The interface is very easy to use. If you are new to organizing your day this is a great one to take that first step. I enjoy using MS Outlook for my work and love the integration of the MS software. However I would like to see this app get a bit more granular for my day by providing the ability to assign more detail. Like similar apps TO DO gets tasks in front of you but it is not clear how to prioritize them and schedule them back into your days blocked time. Prioritizing by due date only is somewhat limiting. Additionally, I like how I can turn any email from Outlook into a task. This is super easy and helpful. It would be welcome to see how I can add it to a sub task as that is unclear from the menu and dragging and dropping. Keep up the great work.
Improve the “Pick a Date and Time” calendar
by 427engine on 2021/09/12 01:49
Unless you’re 8 years old or younger, the little bitty circles for the calendar are hard to select. A good example is the Apple Reminders calendar that’s taller and has surrounded the day numbers with more space. Stop trying to be hip or “edgy” — just make it easier to use. Also I enjoy Microsoft products. But this one is somewhat more busier and clutter than others for phone use. How about a simplified option? Again, the Apple app seems to hit the right spot - and you’re hearing this from a daily Microsoft user.
Need a ToDo app… this isn’t it!
by 174321 on 2021/09/11 01:57
I’ve been looking for a to do app for a couple weeks now. I’ve been diligent reading the notes on features and even hitting the internet. Because one of the main features I want is widgets. Well To Do doesn’t mention widgets in the App Store so I didn’t even bother downloading. But reading about it online it says it rolled out widgets with iOS 14. TOTAL LIE! I downloaded the app only to realize quickly it does NOT have widgets. It’s a totally useless to do app without them. Then I read it randomly deletes your lists and Microsoft doesn’t do a thing about it. That did it. Deleted the app. Doesn’t matter it’s free if it doesn’t have basic features like widgets and backing up your lists.
More bugs than ever
by Rick7500 on 2021/09/10 06:08
I’m sure you know by now that this update simply crashes upon launch time and again?
Does not integrate
by Redmann007 on 2021/09/08 20:11
Why does this not integrate with the calendar and or the email on my phone. This is almost worthless
Best app for lists
by Bobcat46 on 2021/09/08 15:06
I had been a very happy user of Wunderlist for many years and was extremely disappointed when I was informed they were closing down and all my information could be transferred to the To Do app. I resisted until a few days before Wunderlist went away and I do believe that To Do has made many improvements and I am very very happy with the app. Very easy to use
One Minor Issue
by rob3747383 on 2021/09/08 12:31
It’s a fantastic app that I use daily, with one issue: This so does not respect system settings that affect all other apps, such as volume. For example, checking off an item as complete produces the chime sound at maximum volume even when all other sudden and app sounds are low as they have been set to be.
Miss the old app.

I love this app and it helps keep me on track. Since I go to school and I have a million things to get done and this app makes it so easy to keep track of all of that. It also allows me to change backgrounds and make it more enjoyable to look at when I have so much to do!
Ties it all together in an organized fashion

This app is the best to do and organizing app out there. It’s clean and simple, but you can easily modify with a lot of value.
Keeps locking my account
by I heart color fly!!!🙃 on 2021/09/05 11:21
Every single time I go to use it it says that my account has been locked. I’ve made two new accounts and each time it’s the same outcome. I just want to be organized but this app is preventing that. It’s absolute trash.
One more feature
by Tomato Sauce Maker T9000 on 2021/09/04 18:37
I want to be able to set a daily recurrent task, I can do that on iOS reminder app BUT I wish I could do that with this app.
Not MacOS compatible with security
by cambo247 on 2021/08/31 14:44
App won’t accept any facial ID or allow MacOS to save its password. Currently it having difficulty syncing with my outlook server and iPhone. This was a great app when it was Wunderlist! Microsoft f’ed it up requiring logins every time you open the app but not allowing you to save the password on an iPhone or MacOS device! It’s to be expected!

Such a poor substitute for Wunderlist
by phi413pastor on 2021/08/29 23:35
Despite many many complaints about the very poor substitute that To Do is for the many users of Wunderlist. Wunderlist allowed users to make individual comments on a task - with notifications. It is absent from this APP— Microsoft has onky responded by saying we hope to add it in the future. They do not listen.
Another App Ruined
by PokerKing1 on 2021/08/29 18:32
When this was a list app, before Microsoft purchased it, I loved it. It was flexible and you could organize tasks utilizing it increasing efficiency. Now, it’s not a list app it’s a “to do” app which I find unappealing. The biggest problem is, the line items do t sort well at all. When moving line items they frequently get lost as sup items under other list items. This never happened before and is annoying and a huge waste of time. It’s much more difficult to organize your lists in general with this app as well. I wish it could be reverted back to what it once was 😔
A downgrade from Wunderlist
by offpistenh on 2021/08/29 10:40
Moved my lists here when they discontinued Wunderlist. While some of the features are the same, many of the more useful features are non-existent, unreliable, or clunky. I have a lot of annual reminders — house maintenance etc. In Wunderlist, I could just roll the year up by one. Now I have to right-scroll through 12 months to select a reminder a year from now. There’s a number of these annoying little inconveniences. I am going to move to something else. Microsoft, you should have done better before pushing us off Wunderlist... ——— A year or two later, I’m still using this, but still reluctantly. It’s def set up for short term work/productivity setting, not long term things. It’s still a pain to change reminder dates much further out then a month or so.

by JohnARobins on 2021/08/27 01:59
I migrated from Wonderlist. Current version is slightly better. I would not be able to operate efficiently without it. Text formating options on list text and notes would turn a great product into a spectacular one.
ToDo

Nearly Worthless
by txwest1 on 2021/08/26 05:28
Elegant but featureless app. A waste of time. At least TaskTask let’s you assign and view by categories. Microsoft doesn’t believe categories are important for To Do or the Outlook calendar.
Love it!
by mimienid1987 on 2021/08/25 14:11
I love it for getting organized and it keeps all my tasks in one place with notes to refer back to if needed.
Terrable Experience
by M Bahareth on 2021/08/24 22:03
First of all i was forced to move to this app from wunderlist app and forced to use my Microsoft login. I migrated everything from thevapp but the experience is not the same not the feeling. I jave stopped using this app specially that Microsoft has abdoned it and stopped making new functionality and features like then it was wunderlist. I moved to another app and this app is just for remembering the old tims. You can find reminders in IOS 14 or Trello or any other app, at least they care about thier apps unlike Microsoft.

Feature requests below! App’s only for sharpshooters and
by Dangggd on 2021/08/23 06:40
Hey does your team still take feature requests? Get the product owner over here! 1. I’m no iOS dev but consider allowing us to snap items to the bottom of a list by letting go anywhere in the space below the last list item. My lists are short, 7-8 items, likely even more. But it’s really annoying to drag an item down and miss the invisible space that it’s meant to slot in. I prefer not requiring a license as an elite sharpshooter to append items at the bottom. An MVP feature may be a fading border effect. i.e. I’d like to scroll down quickly and fling the last item to the bottom with less precision. 2. Here’s another innovative idea you should user test. What if you make your todo items more like a diary? Give me a calendar to review the things I’ve done the days before. Don’t make users input a time. Just automatically save the time for them. Only sequence matters, from first day’s task to the last thing they do. Maybe an innovation lab might be good for these ideas to research and test.
Does not sync reliably
by jonnysupersonic on 2021/08/22 05:15
I was a long time wunderlist user. MIcrosoft ToDo has ruined the app. I sync tasks but even with no errors the data on my iPhone and MacBook is never the same. I need to guess workarounds like make a brand new list and move all items to the new list and then sync. But some tasks seem cached and no matter what they won’t update. I’m moving to another app. This app makes life harder instead of easier.
Overall good app
by eekster88 on 2021/08/21 19:27
Been using this since Wunderlist converted over to it. Some little peeves like when I go to drag items higher or lower in the order sometimes the item gets put as a subtask as another item in the list and I haven’t seen a way to just pull it back out-have to delete it and start all over. Other than that, like that the list can be shared among other users.
Scrolling
by RudaRu2 on 2021/08/19 21:40
All I wanted was simple, basic list maker and one that I could have on 2 devices that would be connected to each other. That’s all good. There’s just one thing that really annoys me. Sometimes when I go to scroll it doesn’t move and it deletes stuff off my list or when I’m scrolling it deletes stuff. Then I have to go down to the completed list to put the stuff back.
Very useful.
by Colin-P on 2021/08/19 20:17

Can’t copy lists or tasks
by Ordinary User 77 on 2021/08/18 10:55
I have several lists that act as templates that I would like to copy or duplicate and re-use. I can do this in the desktop app but not the iOS app. Please add the ability to copy or duplicate lists and tasks! This is a major feature that is missing from an otherwise nice app.
Great app…one issue
by Justkeepriding on 2021/08/16 03:42
As someone with ADHD, this is a great app to help me organize my tasks. I typically stick to physical organizers and planners but I really enjoy using this app as an alternative. Only complaint is that you can’t add due dates to individual steps. There are ways to work around this issue, although more complicated. If this could be resolved I would definetly give this app a five star rating. Other than that, great app!
Where is multi-account support?
by almondwine on 2021/08/15 21:55
It’s just ridiculous that this isn’t delivered yet for iOS and iPadOS. It’s been one of the leading UserVoice requests for going FOUR YEARS, and it’s been delivered to Android and Microsoft versions of the app. It’ll never be ready for prime time as a to do list that could work alongside M365/Outlook until it can handle both personal and work accounts.
Drag and drop issues
by CKGN on 2021/08/15 16:06
I’ve been using this app since back when it was Wunderlist, recently it’s become incredibly finicky when you try to drag and drop to rearrange the order of items in a list. I do this with my grocery list all the time to put it in store order before I go in to shop but recently half of my items end up mysteriously dropping outside my grocery list and into my main errands list. Please take a look at this functionality

Simple and effective
by ItsPavlo on 2021/08/13 17:14
I don’t normally leave reviews but hopefully this can help someone like me, who has trouble staying organized and planning things if they aren’t written down. I much prefer pen and paper, but in today’s digital age it’s not realistic to always have both on hand and easily accessible. First of all, I’ve tried so many different task apps over the years (both paid and free) and I’m so happy to have finally settled on this one. The interface is very simple; you just type and press enter and your task is set. Additionally, you may opt to set reminders and due dates, either at time of writing or later. My favorite feature is the Siri compatibility, so I can always add things even if I can’t type at that moment. Next, this app wins because I no longer have to browse through a bunch of different lists and categories to see what needs to be done urgently; I can see exactly what needs to be done today, next week, and next month. I can also see what doesn’t have a due date, and one can be assigned later. The ability to sort by lists and urgency simultaneously is phenomenal. Finally, I only use Apple products and this syncs flawlessly across my iPhone, iPad, iWatch, and MacBook. Overall, this app does wonders for my productivity. Keep it simple!

The switch
by redneckteck on 2021/08/11 02:52
Well I also had a difficult time after Wunderlist. But with the updates and my persistent efforts I got ToDo to work close to Wunderlist in fact with a little more options. I was very frustrated to begin with but very satisfied now in fact more so. Even got my daughter who used Wunderlist set up like mine and she to is satisfied with it now. It was a long haul to get it working. I don’t read instructions I play till it’s what I want. Now that I have had To Do since it was first introduction I love it. I have many stores with lists for shopping items on each. I also use it for reminders. Love the way it lists separately the stores and items for each I shopping at more than one store. When I complete each item at each store I just tap and it returns to my list for that store so don’t have to keep adding. You can also use it for appointments. Highly recommend.

My Day Feature
by Milo0789 on 2021/08/09 14:19
This is the first review of an app I’ve ever written. I love the My Day and Suggestions user experience. Having a blank slate to start my day is perfect and then having the app suggest based off due date, priority, other indicators what I should focus on is fantastic. To often with todo lists we put everything on there at once and the list becomes unmanageable and daunting. With My Day I can actually prioritize and focus on 2-3 items at a time. This ux is better than anything in Todoist or Things or any other todo app I’ve used.
Love this app but….
by mmkenn on 2021/08/08 21:38
Can you please add a feature to “un-do the merging of a task into another one. Sometimes when I am re-ordering my tasks, I mistakenly make it a sub task. The only way I can undo this is to delete the sub task and redo the original task. Am I missing something?
Crashes

by MikeSk49 on 2021/08/06 16:38
I switched to To-Do from Wonderlist. I’d say To-Do is just as good. I like the synchronization capabilities. It is not as robust as Outlook which I used when I worked in a corporate environment. I miss the advanced filtering and sorting capabilities of Outlook.
Grocery store list

Lacking one basic feature
by sujo0201 on 2021/08/06 12:54
Anyone else confused why options for app badge notifications doesn’t include “just show app badge alerts when tasks come due”? It’s really annoying to get a huge app badge number each day for tasks that may not be due for hours. Would rate at least 4 stars if that was available.
Favor Please
by C Chardonai on 2021/08/06 05:06
I would love to give this application rave reviews... And I came so close.. Until... I realized that I cannot sync it to my AppleWatch because it is not compatible with my AppleWatch. So.. I looked to find something that would be compatible: someway to get the watch to use a different application to sync .. But I can find none. Could/would you please help me to establish a detente between Microsoft todo, my AppleWatch and my iPhone?! 🙏🏻 Most sincerely, Chardonai
Love this app, but it does crash a lot
by Quetzalle on 2021/08/05 13:43
I use this app constantly so I feel bad not giving 5 stars, but it does crash multiple times per day for me most days. It seems to have a hard time with links in the notes field (crashes when I open the note and scroll to the bottom) and notes with a lot of large sub-notes. Otherwise love it.

Needs an indent feature to allow for parent / child tasks, which can be scheduled independently
by Family Man - Clay on 2021/08/04 03:50
Sometimes a task requires many sub tasks that need to be scheduled. Current subtasks cannot be scheduled. One idea would be to create (1) parent task and then create many tasks, which would act as child tasks to the parent. You could do this by indenting or linking the child tasks to the single parent tasks so that you could schedule the child tasks independently. With this solution, your parent task could be a milestone and the supporting child tasks are the events helping you to achieve that milestone
Best list program ever
by Ynkybaby33 on 2021/08/03 12:58
I absolutely love this app!!! It does exactly what I want it to do, shares in real time with only the people you invite to each list, updates in real time. I use this for so many things. Great for family grocery list as well as soooo many others. I am a “list person” and this is my favorite app ❤️❤️❤️
No
by Mskalsnsoan on 2021/08/03 02:53
Do not download this app. They can’t seem to fix the bug that deletes all of your lists/tasks from time to time. It sounds like a good option, it’s not. It will delete info on you at the most inconvenient time. I’ve read it goes as far back as 2016.

by Hdjsksjfnr on 2021/07/31 01:19
I have a school account and a personal account and I like to keep the two separate for organizational purposes. Apparently I have to continually switch back and forth between accounts to see the tasks associated with each account. It would be much easier to see them all in one place - similar to what we can do with email. Until this happens, I’ll find a different app to use, but everything else was great.
Love love love this

My favorite to do list manager !
Glitch and design
by Jimbday on 2021/07/29 14:31
I use this daily. It’s good enough. Cons: If re-ordering subtasks under a task on iPhone, the sub task occasionally disappears off the list when you release your thumb. It pops up on the main tasks list. Also too easy to mark something as complete accidentally. If you think you’ve made this mistake, it becomes difficult to find because you can’t sort all tasks (even crossed out tasks) by completion date.
Pretty Good
by AJBigCool on 2021/07/28 20:44
This app works pretty well, but it does come with a few flaws. For some reason, sometimes it just kind of forgets what time you set for a reminder, and it can also forget to change the reminder to the next day, disabling the time set for that day. I also just found out that it’s basically impossible to change the background of a list on the mobile version, I have to do it on my computer.
Took Wunderlist, made it worse
by justinrules on 2021/07/28 00:50
Way to go Microsoft. Taking wonderlist, turning into a slower, glitchier, worse app.
Complated
by heaveneatth on 2021/07/27 23:28
I like this app. If possible can you add how many completed task .always I calculated sometimes i am confusing.if i can see how many i completed to do.it will be good
It’s great but Watch app missing
by Linsiris on 2021/07/27 20:26
It’s one if the best, fast, reliable, easy to use, sort and organize BUT the apple watch app/complication is overdue!
App needs attention
by Radar loop on 2021/07/26 22:38
Very quirky. Basic app is fine but you can be typing notes and it switches to another task so the information ends up in the wrong location. Happens weekly….or you are typing and it jumps to another location. Wake up Microsoft and fix what could be a great app Also it would be helpful if you could put certain notes in Bold or color.
Doesn’t Sync
by dylan kreigh on 2021/07/26 17:47
Tasks don’t sync across web, iPhone, and Mac apps. I can get the list names to sync but not individual tasks.
Stoped sending notifications
by MoverMdren on 2021/07/25 20:53
It used to be an excellent app. I noticed recently it does not send iOS notifications of repeating tasks - no banner, nothing in iOS notification center. What is a point of a task reminder that does not send notifications?
Super easy to use!
by Viajera99 on 2021/07/22 17:48
This is an excellent app for list making, keeping all the lists in one place (on my phone) and I live the “Ding!” chime that it makes when I check off an item - sense of accomplishment, check! 😎✅ The only drawback is that I can only organize the lists two ways - alphabetical or by date created. It would be nice to have more options on how to organize. For example, when I go grocery shopping, I normally go to a bulk store and then also to a regular grocery store. It would be nice to be able to subdivide my grocery list into two lists, one for each store.
Great Application
by Carroju1 on 2021/07/22 16:53
We use To Do to share a grocery list. I love that, because when you need something, you add it to the list and then whoever goes to the store gets it and removes it. It prevents over buying items. I also list all my medications here as well as a list for “Travel Needs” for our trips. I love it!
Erased Tasks
by Zoom DR on 2021/07/22 10:45
I spent a significant amount of time entering tasks in to this app. Suddenly one day after an update, no tasks listed anywhere. I can’t recommend this app with randomly erasing tasks.
Does it have a widget?
by zilinzheng on 2021/07/22 00:21
Can’t find its widget even though MS Tech Support said they have it. Anybody?
Just one little thing…
by t-rowe USU on 2021/07/21 21:50
I like this app and it’s overall functionality works well for me. One recommendation I would have is to let people change the sound for completing a task. Maybe you have more options or people could add their own sound. The ding is nice but some customization would be great. How some clapping or cheering?
Too easy to delete
by RaeM Des on 2021/07/21 16:12
With this app I find myself accidentally deleting to do items just by touching them. They instantly disappear and sometimes I’m not even aware it’s happened. I need a confirmation question before they disappear.
Really cool
by johnja02 on 2021/07/20 18:59
This thing is really cool
Why Must I Sign In With a Microsoft Account to Use?
by SummerWisps on 2021/07/19 22:02
Ricidulous. You have to sign in to use the app, which initially is acceptable. But, I got logged out somehow and can’t use the app until I sign back in. Might not be a big deal to someone who uses simple, easy-to-remember passwords, but I’m not that person. Uggh.
Tracking
by Mr Potters on 2021/07/18 22:00
I will not allow any app to track me! Period! deleted every one of these apps from every apple product I own…
To Do List

Never have to use sticky notes again!
FINALLY Matches & Surpasses Wunderlist!
by LYAppleUser on 2020/06/04 16:08
This morning, the creators of “Microsoft To Do” FINALLY fixed enough of the features on this app to meet my former expectations of “Wunderlist!” “Microsoft To Do” (at first) had a lot of fun new features like colorful backgrounds for lists, and a few more sorting options, but was still missing some of the BASICS I enjoyed in “Wunderlist:” Here are my favorite two: 1) Being able to quickly recover a RECENTLY checked-off item at the TOP of the completed items, within a given list. Example: In “To Do” completed items were initially only alphabetized. I have an ongoing (reusable) grocery list including HUNDREDS of products. I even number them, by aisle, to ensure I see them “in order.” (Even if I’m in a different store, it still, at least, “categorizes” them together). But an “accidentally checked off” item, while shopping, was virtually GONE (until I got home & realized what was missing). This was fixed! Now I can just look at the TOP of the completed list. And, 2) Now I can see upcoming tasks separated out BY DAYS. In the past, anything beyond tomorrow was lumped together. Now, just like in Wunderlist, I can quickly find an upcoming day to which a task can be quickly moved/reassigned. And one of my favorite NEWER features of “To Do:” if you want certain tasks to recur/repeat in the future, say, only Mondays Wednesdays & Fridays (as opposed to once a week, or once a day) it can do this! Very cool. Keep up the great work!
Best To-Do List App I have Found
by TheZZman2000 on 2019/10/16 14:17
I would have to say that overall Microsoft To-Do is a fantastic app and definitely the best to-do list app I have used. They make it very easy for someone with an ever growing and changing list of things that need to be done to organize everything in their life. For example: I have my main tasks listed in the default list but I also have a list for each of the jobs I work, and a group with lists for all of my college classes and their assignments. And the best part is you can view everything that needs to be done today, tomorrow, next week, and later from all of those lists all on one page in the “Planned” tab. This app also works really well across multiple platforms by instantly syncing changes. I use it on my iPhone, iPad, and Windows PC. A main feature I would really love to see added for the versions on iOS and iPadOS is the ability to add Microsoft To-Do to your widgets this way you can see and check things off your list all right from your home screen. My biggest complaint is that whenever you add a task from the “Planned” tab it defaults to being due yesterday??? But overall it’s a to-do list app and I think you would have a really difficult time finding a better one out there.
Not Terrible but There’s Issues
by nyx74 on 2020/03/05 22:16
So I’m trying to wean myself off Wunderlist to the To Do app and while it’s not terrible there are issues. For one I’m not crazy about the Planned section at all. If anything it feels cluttered and unorganized. The earlier tab brings up tasks I’ve not set dates for and ironically haven’t used recently but the only way I can remove them is by marking them as complete and 100% eliminating them. So unless I want to continuously create a new shopping task rather than edit the preexisting one in my earlier tab I guess they’ll have to hang around uselessly in Planned. The other issue I have with Planned is how jumbled up the rest of the week looks when you’re trying to see what tasks are coming up. In Wunderlist your week was sectioned into days and your tasks were allotted to those days. Now the tasks are all piled together under one tab that accounts for most of the week and it just seems like unnecessary clutter. The other issues I came across was that “My Day” doesn’t auto populate which seems rather redundant and I preferred when the important tasks moved to the top of the lists. It would also be really awesome to move the tasks assigned to each day in an order of importance if that became available. I know To Do is still an app in progress but I do rely upon my planners a lot and hope it eventually becomes as successful as the beloved Wunderlist.
Game Changer
by friedlawyer on 2020/08/17 04:00
This app is extremely useful and, unlike many apps that are merely fun and interesting, this one could literally change your life or business if applied thoughtfully. It has some features built in which seem to follow suggestions from mainstream best sellers on organization such as one of my personal favorites: Getting Things Done by David Allen. I know it is based off another program which I never owned. I use the app on my iPhone, iPad and two versions on my desktop—one in a web browser and an iOS app. All four versions have similar features but actually have some extra features you gave to search for almost like a treasure hunt! The browser version allows you to copy tasks and next steps which allows you to create templates for repeated tasks. You can share lists with friends/co-workers as well to delegate next-steps. I recommend you explore the program thoroughly before spending time making detailed lists—there are a few things it cannot do, and knowing what they are helps you to organize your lists properly. I am still exploring the program but have been using it with a lot of success. Good luck. I’m sure Microsoft will continue to improve the program over time.
Works well just needs a few tweaks!
by djun13l on 2020/04/18 14:08
I used to write all my checklists on paper pads and cross things out and then throw away the papers when I was done, but this app is perfect! I can make organized categories of checklists so I can have multiple ongoing lists, and I like that items can be pinned to My Day for what I need to get done today specifically. And the checked off sound is great! My only complaints are that the UI could use some small adjustments. I like to check off items, but then after, I have to delete them. I personally don't think both are necessary but my main issue is that it takes a while to delete items! If I've completed a bunch of items then I have to spend several minutes deleting each one. Also, it's a little difficult to swipe the menu open, I frequently end up unintentionally moving the position of one list item so then they get scrambled, if I didn't accidentally combine two items and have to delete and re-add one. And of course when I want to rearrange the items, they don't want to insert to the bottom of the list either. I'm hoping these things will get fixed over time but so far I'm enjoying the app!
Needs a lot of work
by Isami87 on 2018/05/02 12:44
I am a physician and a scientist who requires a good to-do app to keep everything straight on a daily basis. Wunderlist was really the perfect tool for this, allowing me to organize and share tasks with lab members and clinical colleagues. When I learned it would eventually replace wunderlist, I decided to give To-Do a solid try. I imported all my lists from wunderlist, familiarized myself with all of To-Do’s features, and used it in place of Wunderlist for a good week. Unfortunately, a year after it’s unveiling, To-Do still needs a lot of work. The lack of a way to group related lists and the inability to automatically place tasks that are due today into the “my day” folder are critical deficiencies. Sure you can click the lightbulb in the “my day” folder and select all the upcoming tasks with the help of “suggestions,” but many (like me) cant remember to do that on a daily basis. The point of a to-do app is to make remembering all of your daily tasks unnecessary. I had so many issues with missing things (I literally have a hundred tasks some days) that I had to switch back to Wunderlist within a week. I know that the Microsoft team is working hard on To-Do behind the scenes. I plan to keep checking in and switch to to-do once it truly integrates all the features of wunderlist.
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.
Feature requests below! App’s only for sharpshooters and
by Dangggd on 2021/08/23 06:40
Hey does your team still take feature requests? Get the product owner over here! 1. I’m no iOS dev but consider allowing us to snap items to the bottom of a list by letting go anywhere in the space below the last list item. My lists are short, 7-8 items, likely even more. But it’s really annoying to drag an item down and miss the invisible space that it’s meant to slot in. I prefer not requiring a license as an elite sharpshooter to append items at the bottom. An MVP feature may be a fading border effect. i.e. I’d like to scroll down quickly and fling the last item to the bottom with less precision. 2. Here’s another innovative idea you should user test. What if you make your todo items more like a diary? Give me a calendar to review the things I’ve done the days before. Don’t make users input a time. Just automatically save the time for them. Only sequence matters, from first day’s task to the last thing they do. Maybe an innovation lab might be good for these ideas to research and test.
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!
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
Frustrated!
by Dust907601 on 2020/04/18 17:34
I am so frustrated with Microsoft To Do! It has been extremely frustrating trying to import my lists to Microsoft To Do from Wunderlist. It will not store any of my image files within the app, but says I can import them onto my phone or computer as a file, which defeats the purpose of having a list for things that need files. For instance, I have a dietary food chart that I need to refer to frequently. The app does not allow for this due to the file size being too large. I enjoy making lists of gift ideas or future things I wish to order with a web site or image on my list. It will not allow for any of this, which has caused me to no longer have access to these lists. I did download these as a file but it is not in list form but just a mis mash list of images one after another. Also, another frustration is that when I simply wanted to invite my husband to share a grocery list with me, it ended up inviting a whole group of my contacts that were added automatically somehow. I miss the ease of Wunderlist and hope that Microsoft can update this app to make it at least as good as Wunderlist was.
Tasks and Outlook
by NB Unicorn on 2020/08/11 13:02
Hello - I love tasks, however it doesn’t community to email as I would like. It doesn’t allow me to create a note/task tied directly to an email. Every email that comes in has action items tied to it. So if we had the ability to add a Note/task to that email, it would help us focus on the actionable items of importance. If we open 100 emails a day, that’s a lot of action items. And if we wanted to prioritize those actions of importance, we need an organized way to see those actions. So the tasks would appear in 2 locations exactly the same. Duplicate. One on the task bar as it is today, and the other would appear as a icon of some sort on the email itself. Could you add an icon on the email options for “tasks/notes” with time and date stamps on them so we can get even more strategic on what we are completing first. Also, if we do get the option to create an action task for email, can that option also be made available for the mobile app. I try and work on my phone as often as I can however it’s not as efficient as the desktop applications.
Merely populates iPhone Reminders
by billy'n'holly on 2020/05/11 11:12
I’ll give this app 2-stars because it doesn’t crash ... but seriously, why would anyone WANT to quit using the superior Wunderlist for this half-effort? Any item you create is stored in the iPhone Reminders as a to-do, but neither scheduled nor shared with associates. Items are not entered by default with a due date, and even if you do add a due or reminder date, they’ll disappear from “today” and don’t carry over to tomorrow, so you must manually add any tasks from a single list of ALL tasks. If you mark an item with a star ... well that’s meaningless. And should you open your iPhone Reminders, you’ll find 100’s of stored there, thereby making simple reminders (like “go to bed”) lost amongst the work tasks that didn’t require being spammed through the Reminders app, not to mention now your to-do of “turn in report” has the same unimportant notification appearance, sound, and limited snooze options as “pick up kids from school”. Utterly worthless and a lesson for how to drive away millions of customers so an app exists solely to have O365 but without any of Wunderlist’s functionality. What a waste.
Missing the “PRINT LIST” feature! Frustrated...
by ABerry83 on 2020/03/10 01:45
I am a Wunderlist user who (like many many others) was forced to migrate to Microsoft To Do. I had for years used Wunderlist’s “PRINT LIST” option which allows me to print about a dozen or so weekly cleaning and chore lists for around the house DIRECTLY from my iPhone via AirPrint and send all my checklists to my home printer wirelessly—complete with indented tasks, sub-tasks, task notes, page numbers, neatly organized checkboxes next to each item, and even a proper header and footer with the date my list was printed, etc.; however, this same option to print is NOT available in Microsoft To Do which is very frustrating since I have use this feature on a weekly basis for years now. I had spent a significant amount of time creating detailed lists for other things such as an “RV Checklist” and others. Now, since we are forced to move away from Wunderlist to the lessor Microsoft To Do app, I will have to spend time finding and migrating again over to another better app that allows me a simple option to directly print my lists from my iPhone via AirPrint straight to my networked home printer.
Keeps getting better
by Scotteeboy on 2020/04/06 04:33
This app is so well supported, with constant interactions at it’s worth checking out - especially if you work within Microsoft 365 and the Microsoft ecosystem. That said, the more information it brings in, the more it needs to allow you to filter the info. That’s where it has some shortcomings. To make this a great app I’d like to see better filtering capabilities so I can filter the info I need to see across lists (even if the tasks are coming from Planner). I’d like to move planner tasks into various lists. I’d like a list of my tags so I don’t have to guess at what tags I’ve got out there. Saved items from Teams should also be brought into To-do in the same way planner tasks are brought in. And of course, there should be option to automatically populate My Day. I understand why this feature is missing but it needs to be an option if the user wants it. That would help take some of the manual work out of using My Day. Thanks again to the To Do team.
Serves its purpose
by Dang Hazelnut on 2019/02/11 23:18
My husband and I have been looking for an app that accommodates to our meal-planning. This one is by far the best due to a simple user interface, convenient checklist, uncomplicated tools, and online account integration. Although what we use is very different than what this app is intended for, it’s exactly what we need. We are removing one star because we find it difficult to retype all the entries for other lists. Having a copy-and-paste feature would be wonderful. Another feature we would like to see is an option to set which page is defaulted when opening the app. Right now, it’s “My Day” and we would like to be able to see the entire list page when we open the app. Lastly, we would love to see an expanded collection of colors and themes. Heck, I would love for it to be completely customizable where we can select photos from our camera roll. Looking forward to what the future updates this app has to offer!
Almost five stars...
by •CiCi• on 2020/06/08 18:45
This app is really nice for lots of reasons. One of these is, it's completely free! Which is super nice because I tried to find other planner apps however you HAD to get premium on all of them which made me really upset. Also, with this app, you can create a custom repeat unlike other apps where you can only repeat daily or weekly etc. I also really enjoy how organized it is. It's great for multiple things like, goal tracking, to do, school work, and much more! I didn't give it five stars because, 1. I was really hoping that I would be able to make the tasks diffrent colors or diffrent fonts not that this is totally important but I think it would make it more enjoyable for me. And 2. When you get into the app you have to long into your Microsoft account. Which isn't a big deal however, I did not have one before so it was a very long process to create one. 3. You cant use your personal photos as the theme background.
The switch
by redneckteck on 2021/08/11 02:52
Well I also had a difficult time after Wunderlist. But with the updates and my persistent efforts I got ToDo to work close to Wunderlist in fact with a little more options. I was very frustrated to begin with but very satisfied now in fact more so. Even got my daughter who used Wunderlist set up like mine and she to is satisfied with it now. It was a long haul to get it working. I don’t read instructions I play till it’s what I want. Now that I have had To Do since it was first introduction I love it. I have many stores with lists for shopping items on each. I also use it for reminders. Love the way it lists separately the stores and items for each I shopping at more than one store. When I complete each item at each store I just tap and it returns to my list for that store so don’t have to keep adding. You can also use it for appointments. Highly recommend.
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.
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.
Half-Baked
by Grogboshi on 2018/03/08 02:16
This app and its web counterpart need a lot more work. It would be great if they combined it with Outlook Tasks and Planner into a single task management system, akin to Todoist. The app needs natural language support, a desktop Mac client, tie-ins with Teams to create tasks and projects directly from Teams, and tasks dated for today need to be automatically added to My Day so everything due in a given day is all in one place, rather than looking from list to list. It would also be great if it had a general Inbox to add tasks to as they come to mind and then organize later, like GTD prescribes. List sharing would be another big boost, especially for businesses if it’s linked to Teams, so that projects could be organized through ToDo and tasks managed. Apps like TickTick or Todoist show how powerful task management systems can also be easy to use and good for both individuals and businesses. Hopefully this app will follow in their footsteps and replace the myriad Microsoft task and project management options that currently exist (Outlook Tasks, Planner, To-Do), like Microsoft is doing consolidating Lync, Skype, and Teams.
Steps are headed in the right direction but…
by middlenameray on 2018/04/13 20:26
With the addition of steps/subtasks, we’re definitely getting closer to this app replicating the full functionality Wunderlist (need folders and shared notes support to make it complete). But there’s a weird glitch in the app and the steps keep disappearing/reappearing. Sometimes they show, sometimes they don’t. The first time I reopened the app after creating some steps on one of my to-dos I thought they didn’t take, so I added them again, then they vanished again on another reload, so I added them again. Turns out, when I opened the To-Do web client, the original steps I added and ALL the duplicate entries saved to the cloud like they were supposed to but don’t always populate on screen on the phone. What a productivity nightmare. Add a new step? They all appear again. Rearrange the to-dos? Disappear. If this bug can be squashed I’ll give the app a fourth star. I’ll be screenshotting any to-dos with steps in the meantime so I can be sure I can reference them when I’m on the go.
You just broke it! You changed the basic functionality from REPETITIVE list to ONE-OFF
by GrooverKing on 2020/05/05 13:49
The latest up(down?)date removed the ability to SHOW ALL items together and SORT the list while selecting items. This capability was a huge improvement over Wunderlist and was the only reason we switched. We use To Do for groceries. The list is over a hundred items because we buy the same stuff again and again. Using the completed list, we just find and uncheck what we are out of instead of tediously typing it in each time. Before this update, ‘Show Completed’ items mixed the two lists, in alpha order and we could quickly find items to add, stuff we forgot but need, and stuff added twice! The latest update ruined that functionality, and now it takes longer to make a list than just sending a text. The ‘Completed’ list is now randomly arranged, and can’t be sorted. Please restore the combined sort capability as an option for users who need a shareable list of REPETITIVE items, like grocery lists or household tasks or weekly agendas or repair parts.......
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.
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
Simple and effective
by ItsPavlo on 2021/08/13 17:14
I don’t normally leave reviews but hopefully this can help someone like me, who has trouble staying organized and planning things if they aren’t written down. I much prefer pen and paper, but in today’s digital age it’s not realistic to always have both on hand and easily accessible. First of all, I’ve tried so many different task apps over the years (both paid and free) and I’m so happy to have finally settled on this one. The interface is very simple; you just type and press enter and your task is set. Additionally, you may opt to set reminders and due dates, either at time of writing or later. My favorite feature is the Siri compatibility, so I can always add things even if I can’t type at that moment. Next, this app wins because I no longer have to browse through a bunch of different lists and categories to see what needs to be done urgently; I can see exactly what needs to be done today, next week, and next month. I can also see what doesn’t have a due date, and one can be assigned later. The ability to sort by lists and urgency simultaneously is phenomenal. Finally, I only use Apple products and this syncs flawlessly across my iPhone, iPad, iWatch, and MacBook. Overall, this app does wonders for my productivity. Keep it simple!
Missing One Critical Feature!!
by Kaspa7 on 2018/10/02 04:26
I love the simple yet pretty layout of this app, and I love that I can create different categories (work, school, personal) while having a “My Day” area that shows me ALL tasks that I need to complete that day. Beautiful! HOWEVER, any task you put a due date on does NOT automatically show up in My Day once that day arrives! So even if I put a task as “due tomorrow”, once tomorrow comes it will not show up in My Day. So basically every single morning I have to go through my various lists and add tasks manually to My Day. The whole point of having a due date for me is to “set it and forget it”. It’s too exhausting to add each task manually every day. Doesn’t it make sense that if a task is DUE TODAY that it should appear in the MY DAY folder? Drives me crazy!! I also wish it would have a badge app icon showing me how many tasks are on My Day for the day, so I can have a quick glance just from the home screen of how many tasks I still have to complete that day.
Improving, update by update
by cierrabrooke on 2018/12/01 15:41
To-Do has definitely improved from my first download a year ago, but there are still key features that keep me with Wunderlist (app/company was acquired by Microsoft and that team now works on To-Do). Pros of To-Do that have me looking forward to a move from Wunderlist: - Dropped the skeuomorphic design - Has Wunderlist import feature (some reviews say this is still a little buggy) - The font is clean and visually pleasing Features Wunderlist has that To-Do still needs: - Folders and nesting for lists: I prefer to break out different projects and responsibilities within my work list - Option for a scrolling calendar wheel, or the ability to have weeks start on Monday, not Sunday when setting task due dates. I’m fine with the “Pick a date” calendar option, but I would SO prefer the ability to have this calendar have Mondays to start weeks. I’ve been able to do this in Outlook, so I know you can add this feature 😊 - Ability to update profile photo: Currently cannot update the standard avatar - Variety of neutral backgrounds: With To-Do, the background of the “Important” list cannot be altered. For now it’s an uneditable purple space telescope theme. I tried to swap every list to be a plain neutral blue with no cartoon drawings. Some people may love the cartoons, but I need more neutral color options and just want to focus on my to dos, especially the ones I’ve noted are most important!
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.
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.
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.)
could be better
by Jessesaint on 2020/01/03 09:12
A lot simpler and easier to use than OneNote for task, however I'd really like the option to hide "my day". I have zero interest in using it and would much rather have the mobile and desktop app's open into my first tab/ group. Please, it's always in the way and extremely annoying. Like OneNote, both apps need a trash can/ recently deleted, it's extremely careless for the developers not to include one as I've lost a few well-written notes over this non-including of an EXTREMELY important feature. Not even an undo option, issues with shake to undo, really??? At least To Do has an "are you sure you want to delete?", but it's not enough. Also can't figure out how to delete unintentional created groups in the mobile app, only on the desktop app... Okay? All around it's better then what's out there, just a few tedious important features missing for me to give it a complete five stars. also I don't know what your problem is, but if I take my time to drag and drop something it would be great if you didn't make it JUMP BACK TO THE END.
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!
A simple reminders app is just what most of us need.
by e10. with a lightning port. on 2018/10/14 08:43
I started looking for a reminders app when I realized that the calendar’s “up next” widget contains reminders as well, so I deleted reminders and started looking elsewhere. Most of the reminders apps I’ve seen are either really simple, too complicated, or have complex tasks and just useless stuff locked behind a paywall. Microsoft’s ToDo is not the best app for the job, but it’s at least got the basics down, doesn’t lock it in a paywall, and doesn’t make it super complex. I would still like having location based reminders like on the Apple app, but I’ll forgive it. It still has: Reminders based on time, repeating reminders daily-weekly-monthly-yearly, notes, and color coded reminders groups. Yes, I wish it had location reminders, and that it didn’t force me to have it’s “Tasks” group, but it really is all you need. It’s basic, and that’s good.
Bleh
by B to the fourth on 2020/04/05 13:17
I was a Wunderlist user and I used it for very simple things - groceries, personal to-do’s, etc. Light, simple use. Loved Wunderlist. I’ve experienced Issues with this app that seem very basic to me, though. For example: - Synching is buggy. I share several lists with my wife and somehow we end up with lists that aren’t exactly the same sometimes. Just got home from the grocery store, wife’s list has hamburger buns, mine didn’t. Watched as we synched again and still not on my list. Of course additional trips to the grocery store are now not so routine. - when I toggle the app to show items crossed off a list, that works. When I toggle back to not showing them it freezes. Every. Single. Time. - it won’t let me move something to the very bottom of the list. Have to move it to second to last, then move the last item up one. - seems very easy to inadvertently cross something off when scrolling compared to Wunderlist. - the nesting feature seems nice in concept, but it’s very easy to accidentally nest something under another to-do item when moving things around on an iPhone, and for the life of me I can’t figure out how to un-nest it. So, stuck with deleting it and adding it again. I would expect some bugs from a fairly new app but seems like Microsoft should be able to do better than the average little app builder. So, we’re gonna use Wunderlist until we can’t then find something else.
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!
Repeating Tasks Repeatedly Disappear
by quantumofsolace on 2019/02/12 19:06
In the couple of months I've used the app, I've had to re-enter repeating tasks several (3-4) times. It seems to only affect daily tasks but I'm not 100 on that. At some point after I complete a repeating task, the app doesn't repopulate the task for the next iteration. So if I have a task that says "go to the gym" and I check it as completed, sometimes the task shows up the next day and sometimes it doesn't. I don't know exactly when this happens because it's hard to notice a single missing task. (At least for me –i have about 25 repeating tasks.) I assume there's a bug somewhere but it shouldn't take two months for a major corporation to fix it, especially since this is basic functionality for a task app. I should have known the app would be extra when I had to reimport my tasks from Wunderlist 3 times. That process should have been infinitely easier since Microsoft develops both Wunderlist and To Do. I had intended to transition to To Do but I think I'll stick with Wunderlist for the moment.
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.
Same as Wunderlist
by AskLifeCoach on 2020/05/16 19:05
I was a HUGE Wunderlist fan for years. It was my most useful app. I deleted the stock lists and made my own lists. It’s for more than shopping and TODO lists. I use it for lots of “HOW to do lists”. Meaning lists I follow to close up the cabin in the fall and other lists to open it in the spring. There is no limit to the type or purpose of lists you can create to make your life easier. The big benefit is the ability to check mark ✅ an item to add to a list and check mark ✅ it when it’s finished. This means a list only needs to be typed in one time. I was devastated when I was told Wunderlist was going away, replaced by this app. Ultimately only the name and colors have changed. This is every bit as good as Wunderlist and honestly, it’s even a bit better.
Off to a great start, but needs maturing.
by TheRamius on 2019/07/10 18:26
Pros: - User friendly for what it offers - Fluid, simple interface. Isn’t confusing to know what you’re doing. - Easy to prioritize tasks - Each task can be broken up into items (very useful for projects and/purchasing) Cons - Minimal navigation ability on completed tasks. Only way to navigate completed tasks is by opening up a list where it’s all dumped into. It may be in chronological order, but it’s difficult to know for sure. This leads me to my second issue... - Completed tasks don’t have a date of completion listed next to it unless you click on the individual task. So if you want to know what you completed in a particular week a couple months ago, you have to keep clicking on items until you find the date of interest. It isn’t clear however in what order the completed tasks are arranged. - As of today there is a bug which keeps you from deleting a repeated task in bulk. I accidentally set a reminder for the next 20 years and it generated tasks for every day for the next 20 years. I couldn’t delete them or remove them from my completed tasks list. I’m sure this would be a relatively simple fix. - If you don’t click something as completed the day it was completed, you cannot go back and edit. It only shows the date you clicked completed.
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!
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.
Extremely Disappointed with the Sorting Features
by Chris528F on 2020/03/19 01:00
I would give this app 5 stars if only after sorting by importance, I could then sort the list more finely by moving the important items in the order I want them. I could do this with Wunderlist, but I can’t do it with Microsoft To Do. I really don’t understand why it is so hard for the Microsoft team to make this change. I use the list for groceries and I have a over 200 items. By starring the items I want, it moves them to the top of the list. But then they are all a jumble. Thus if I have 20 items on my grocery list, I constantly have to be scanning the list and I find myself walking back and forth around the store because the list is not in order. If I were able to sort the grocery items I want to buy, by aisle, after sorting them by importance, it would make the shopping process so much easier and more efficient. I am pleading with you Microsoft, to make this change.
A Pinch From the Finish Line
by icuragoose on 2018/01/06 21:39
(There is now iPad support!) I have loved Wunderlist, and Microsoft aims to replace it. The features in To Do are remarkably similar and familiar to Wunderlist users with simplicity and minimalism at its core. With a slimmed-down UI, there's less to distract you and with the flawlessly smooth and responsive controls, you feel like you have a firm grasp on your system. Everything is intuitive and inviting. In addition, I'm from Seattle, so I appreciate the themes. Right now the only things missing for my own workflow is the ability to have folders and sublists. This is my last reservation for using this app and once this is complete (both are planned), I can officially utilize this as a Wunderlist replacement. Once I use this in my workflow, I will be most excited about the "My Day" feature. I can use that in tandem with my office' implementation of Kanban to help me see what I committed to getting done today. I can see this being useful for O365 organizations as well, since it can replace the Outlook tasks, pull assigned tasks from Planner, have inputs with Teams (i.e. Right click a message and select "Create Task") I'm excited to see where this goes as I wait patiently for the product to bake. Until then, three stars is about where it's at as of now--little more than a college student's obligatory first app.
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!
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.

Great Productivity and Organizational Tool!
by Logoyo on 2021/09/19 23:08
This app has been a game changer for helping me stay on top of the many things I have to remember to do. I would make a suggestion: it would be great if I could see in the list view the frequency of the repeat on items where I have that set. Other than that, I would not change a thing. Thanks for making such a great tool available for productivity!

Bug: Add a task
by nowbegreat on 2021/09/16 20:27
When trying to make edits while adding a task, the cursor returns to the end of the text after each keystroke. This is very frustrating!

Photo upload does not work

NEEDS TO BE A WIDGET

Not for . Many annoyances
by marchetype on 2021/09/14 21:49
Update 9/2021: ToDo just doesn’t fit in nicely in the Apple ecosystem, be it on iPhone, iPad, or Mac: having to login with a Microsoft-specific account and email address AND being forced to re-login often is not a friendly user experience. Earlier review: Still far behind Wunderlist. Can’t believe Microsoft shut down that app down in the belief that ToDo was ready to replace it. Some of the deficiencies: 1. Can’t display notification badges. 2. Tasks due today don’t show up in My Day. 3. No way to filter tasks by due date (eg tasks due this week). 4. No calendar integration to display tasks by due date on your calendar. 5. Can’t login with 2FA on Microsoft account. 6. Share sheet doesn’t support adding due or reminder dates.
The best.

Problemed app dont bother
by JamesDad on 2021/09/14 12:31
Works if u use it alone . As soon as u share w another dont bother find another app.
Just a suggestion
by minniemechan on 2021/09/13 18:56
And I’m sure this is already being worked on. After all, y’all are the experts. But everything about this app is amazing. As I’m diving into more commitments, it’s definitely helping me keep everything in order, and I love that it shows my day and what I have to accomplish that day. But Siri integration is the one thing that would make this app SOAR above the rest. Instead she just adds tasks to my iPhone calendar and I have to go back and manually enter them in TODO. I love it but can’t wait till I can tell Siri to set a task for me.
Best ToDo app integrated with M365
by goodtimes4days on 2021/09/13 16:16
The app is integrated with Outlook to flag emails for follow up and allows plenty of flexibility for individual task management. For teams, it integrates with the Planner app, which is the best place for collaboration of multiple tasks within the Teams app ecosystem.
Keeps getting better
by sail 767 on 2021/09/13 15:49
I loved Wunderlist. But I have to admit I like Microsoft To Do even better. They took everything good from Wunderlist and keep adding improvements.
Great App - More Details Please
by Fred Aebli on 2021/09/13 12:05
I have been bouncing between several apps and approaches to my day. The interface is very easy to use. If you are new to organizing your day this is a great one to take that first step. I enjoy using MS Outlook for my work and love the integration of the MS software. However I would like to see this app get a bit more granular for my day by providing the ability to assign more detail. Like similar apps TO DO gets tasks in front of you but it is not clear how to prioritize them and schedule them back into your days blocked time. Prioritizing by due date only is somewhat limiting. Additionally, I like how I can turn any email from Outlook into a task. This is super easy and helpful. It would be welcome to see how I can add it to a sub task as that is unclear from the menu and dragging and dropping. Keep up the great work.
Improve the “Pick a Date and Time” calendar
by 427engine on 2021/09/12 01:49
Unless you’re 8 years old or younger, the little bitty circles for the calendar are hard to select. A good example is the Apple Reminders calendar that’s taller and has surrounded the day numbers with more space. Stop trying to be hip or “edgy” — just make it easier to use. Also I enjoy Microsoft products. But this one is somewhat more busier and clutter than others for phone use. How about a simplified option? Again, the Apple app seems to hit the right spot - and you’re hearing this from a daily Microsoft user.
Need a ToDo app… this isn’t it!
by 174321 on 2021/09/11 01:57
I’ve been looking for a to do app for a couple weeks now. I’ve been diligent reading the notes on features and even hitting the internet. Because one of the main features I want is widgets. Well To Do doesn’t mention widgets in the App Store so I didn’t even bother downloading. But reading about it online it says it rolled out widgets with iOS 14. TOTAL LIE! I downloaded the app only to realize quickly it does NOT have widgets. It’s a totally useless to do app without them. Then I read it randomly deletes your lists and Microsoft doesn’t do a thing about it. That did it. Deleted the app. Doesn’t matter it’s free if it doesn’t have basic features like widgets and backing up your lists.
More bugs than ever
by Rick7500 on 2021/09/10 06:08
I’m sure you know by now that this update simply crashes upon launch time and again?
Does not integrate
by Redmann007 on 2021/09/08 20:11
Why does this not integrate with the calendar and or the email on my phone. This is almost worthless
Best app for lists
by Bobcat46 on 2021/09/08 15:06
I had been a very happy user of Wunderlist for many years and was extremely disappointed when I was informed they were closing down and all my information could be transferred to the To Do app. I resisted until a few days before Wunderlist went away and I do believe that To Do has made many improvements and I am very very happy with the app. Very easy to use
One Minor Issue
by rob3747383 on 2021/09/08 12:31
It’s a fantastic app that I use daily, with one issue: This so does not respect system settings that affect all other apps, such as volume. For example, checking off an item as complete produces the chime sound at maximum volume even when all other sudden and app sounds are low as they have been set to be.
Miss the old app.

I love this app and it helps keep me on track. Since I go to school and I have a million things to get done and this app makes it so easy to keep track of all of that. It also allows me to change backgrounds and make it more enjoyable to look at when I have so much to do!
Ties it all together in an organized fashion

This app is the best to do and organizing app out there. It’s clean and simple, but you can easily modify with a lot of value.
Keeps locking my account
by I heart color fly!!!🙃 on 2021/09/05 11:21
Every single time I go to use it it says that my account has been locked. I’ve made two new accounts and each time it’s the same outcome. I just want to be organized but this app is preventing that. It’s absolute trash.
One more feature
by Tomato Sauce Maker T9000 on 2021/09/04 18:37
I want to be able to set a daily recurrent task, I can do that on iOS reminder app BUT I wish I could do that with this app.
Not MacOS compatible with security
by cambo247 on 2021/08/31 14:44
App won’t accept any facial ID or allow MacOS to save its password. Currently it having difficulty syncing with my outlook server and iPhone. This was a great app when it was Wunderlist! Microsoft f’ed it up requiring logins every time you open the app but not allowing you to save the password on an iPhone or MacOS device! It’s to be expected!

Such a poor substitute for Wunderlist
by phi413pastor on 2021/08/29 23:35
Despite many many complaints about the very poor substitute that To Do is for the many users of Wunderlist. Wunderlist allowed users to make individual comments on a task - with notifications. It is absent from this APP— Microsoft has onky responded by saying we hope to add it in the future. They do not listen.
Another App Ruined
by PokerKing1 on 2021/08/29 18:32
When this was a list app, before Microsoft purchased it, I loved it. It was flexible and you could organize tasks utilizing it increasing efficiency. Now, it’s not a list app it’s a “to do” app which I find unappealing. The biggest problem is, the line items do t sort well at all. When moving line items they frequently get lost as sup items under other list items. This never happened before and is annoying and a huge waste of time. It’s much more difficult to organize your lists in general with this app as well. I wish it could be reverted back to what it once was 😔
A downgrade from Wunderlist
by offpistenh on 2021/08/29 10:40
Moved my lists here when they discontinued Wunderlist. While some of the features are the same, many of the more useful features are non-existent, unreliable, or clunky. I have a lot of annual reminders — house maintenance etc. In Wunderlist, I could just roll the year up by one. Now I have to right-scroll through 12 months to select a reminder a year from now. There’s a number of these annoying little inconveniences. I am going to move to something else. Microsoft, you should have done better before pushing us off Wunderlist... ——— A year or two later, I’m still using this, but still reluctantly. It’s def set up for short term work/productivity setting, not long term things. It’s still a pain to change reminder dates much further out then a month or so.

After an update my password did not work, contacted support center. Request acknowledged and never completed with no response or help. All data was lost.
It's central to all I do.
by JohnARobins on 2021/08/27 01:59
I migrated from Wonderlist. Current version is slightly better. I would not be able to operate efficiently without it. Text formating options on list text and notes would turn a great product into a spectacular one.
ToDo

This ToDo works great for my team to enter and check off work orders in a very simply way. Thanks For a great app!
Nearly Worthless
by txwest1 on 2021/08/26 05:28
Elegant but featureless app. A waste of time. At least TaskTask let’s you assign and view by categories. Microsoft doesn’t believe categories are important for To Do or the Outlook calendar.
Love it!
by mimienid1987 on 2021/08/25 14:11
I love it for getting organized and it keeps all my tasks in one place with notes to refer back to if needed.
Terrable Experience
by M Bahareth on 2021/08/24 22:03
First of all i was forced to move to this app from wunderlist app and forced to use my Microsoft login. I migrated everything from thevapp but the experience is not the same not the feeling. I jave stopped using this app specially that Microsoft has abdoned it and stopped making new functionality and features like then it was wunderlist. I moved to another app and this app is just for remembering the old tims. You can find reminders in IOS 14 or Trello or any other app, at least they care about thier apps unlike Microsoft.

by Koendit on 2021/08/24 12:45
The app worked great, but I wanted to log in with a new laptop after migrating back to the US, and despite having the password and login, To Do would not let me in. Awful experience.

Feature requests below! App’s only for sharpshooters and
by Dangggd on 2021/08/23 06:40
Hey does your team still take feature requests? Get the product owner over here! 1. I’m no iOS dev but consider allowing us to snap items to the bottom of a list by letting go anywhere in the space below the last list item. My lists are short, 7-8 items, likely even more. But it’s really annoying to drag an item down and miss the invisible space that it’s meant to slot in. I prefer not requiring a license as an elite sharpshooter to append items at the bottom. An MVP feature may be a fading border effect. i.e. I’d like to scroll down quickly and fling the last item to the bottom with less precision. 2. Here’s another innovative idea you should user test. What if you make your todo items more like a diary? Give me a calendar to review the things I’ve done the days before. Don’t make users input a time. Just automatically save the time for them. Only sequence matters, from first day’s task to the last thing they do. Maybe an innovation lab might be good for these ideas to research and test.
Does not sync reliably
by jonnysupersonic on 2021/08/22 05:15
I was a long time wunderlist user. MIcrosoft ToDo has ruined the app. I sync tasks but even with no errors the data on my iPhone and MacBook is never the same. I need to guess workarounds like make a brand new list and move all items to the new list and then sync. But some tasks seem cached and no matter what they won’t update. I’m moving to another app. This app makes life harder instead of easier.
Overall good app
by eekster88 on 2021/08/21 19:27
Been using this since Wunderlist converted over to it. Some little peeves like when I go to drag items higher or lower in the order sometimes the item gets put as a subtask as another item in the list and I haven’t seen a way to just pull it back out-have to delete it and start all over. Other than that, like that the list can be shared among other users.
Scrolling
by RudaRu2 on 2021/08/19 21:40
All I wanted was simple, basic list maker and one that I could have on 2 devices that would be connected to each other. That’s all good. There’s just one thing that really annoys me. Sometimes when I go to scroll it doesn’t move and it deletes stuff off my list or when I’m scrolling it deletes stuff. Then I have to go down to the completed list to put the stuff back.
Very useful.
by Colin-P on 2021/08/19 20:17
An easy to use app that can be accessed and shared easily. I use it all the time.

Can’t copy lists or tasks
by Ordinary User 77 on 2021/08/18 10:55
I have several lists that act as templates that I would like to copy or duplicate and re-use. I can do this in the desktop app but not the iOS app. Please add the ability to copy or duplicate lists and tasks! This is a major feature that is missing from an otherwise nice app.
Great app…one issue
by Justkeepriding on 2021/08/16 03:42
As someone with ADHD, this is a great app to help me organize my tasks. I typically stick to physical organizers and planners but I really enjoy using this app as an alternative. Only complaint is that you can’t add due dates to individual steps. There are ways to work around this issue, although more complicated. If this could be resolved I would definetly give this app a five star rating. Other than that, great app!
Where is multi-account support?
by almondwine on 2021/08/15 21:55
It’s just ridiculous that this isn’t delivered yet for iOS and iPadOS. It’s been one of the leading UserVoice requests for going FOUR YEARS, and it’s been delivered to Android and Microsoft versions of the app. It’ll never be ready for prime time as a to do list that could work alongside M365/Outlook until it can handle both personal and work accounts.
Drag and drop issues
by CKGN on 2021/08/15 16:06
I’ve been using this app since back when it was Wunderlist, recently it’s become incredibly finicky when you try to drag and drop to rearrange the order of items in a list. I do this with my grocery list all the time to put it in store order before I go in to shop but recently half of my items end up mysteriously dropping outside my grocery list and into my main errands list. Please take a look at this functionality

Simple and effective
by ItsPavlo on 2021/08/13 17:14
I don’t normally leave reviews but hopefully this can help someone like me, who has trouble staying organized and planning things if they aren’t written down. I much prefer pen and paper, but in today’s digital age it’s not realistic to always have both on hand and easily accessible. First of all, I’ve tried so many different task apps over the years (both paid and free) and I’m so happy to have finally settled on this one. The interface is very simple; you just type and press enter and your task is set. Additionally, you may opt to set reminders and due dates, either at time of writing or later. My favorite feature is the Siri compatibility, so I can always add things even if I can’t type at that moment. Next, this app wins because I no longer have to browse through a bunch of different lists and categories to see what needs to be done urgently; I can see exactly what needs to be done today, next week, and next month. I can also see what doesn’t have a due date, and one can be assigned later. The ability to sort by lists and urgency simultaneously is phenomenal. Finally, I only use Apple products and this syncs flawlessly across my iPhone, iPad, iWatch, and MacBook. Overall, this app does wonders for my productivity. Keep it simple!

The switch
by redneckteck on 2021/08/11 02:52
Well I also had a difficult time after Wunderlist. But with the updates and my persistent efforts I got ToDo to work close to Wunderlist in fact with a little more options. I was very frustrated to begin with but very satisfied now in fact more so. Even got my daughter who used Wunderlist set up like mine and she to is satisfied with it now. It was a long haul to get it working. I don’t read instructions I play till it’s what I want. Now that I have had To Do since it was first introduction I love it. I have many stores with lists for shopping items on each. I also use it for reminders. Love the way it lists separately the stores and items for each I shopping at more than one store. When I complete each item at each store I just tap and it returns to my list for that store so don’t have to keep adding. You can also use it for appointments. Highly recommend.
Needs snooze!!

My Day Feature
by Milo0789 on 2021/08/09 14:19
This is the first review of an app I’ve ever written. I love the My Day and Suggestions user experience. Having a blank slate to start my day is perfect and then having the app suggest based off due date, priority, other indicators what I should focus on is fantastic. To often with todo lists we put everything on there at once and the list becomes unmanageable and daunting. With My Day I can actually prioritize and focus on 2-3 items at a time. This ux is better than anything in Todoist or Things or any other todo app I’ve used.
Love this app but….
by mmkenn on 2021/08/08 21:38
Can you please add a feature to “un-do the merging of a task into another one. Sometimes when I am re-ordering my tasks, I mistakenly make it a sub task. The only way I can undo this is to delete the sub task and redo the original task. Am I missing something?
Crashes

by MikeSk49 on 2021/08/06 16:38
I switched to To-Do from Wonderlist. I’d say To-Do is just as good. I like the synchronization capabilities. It is not as robust as Outlook which I used when I worked in a corporate environment. I miss the advanced filtering and sorting capabilities of Outlook.
Grocery store list
by btzfldt on 2021/08/06 15:17

Lacking one basic feature
by sujo0201 on 2021/08/06 12:54
Anyone else confused why options for app badge notifications doesn’t include “just show app badge alerts when tasks come due”? It’s really annoying to get a huge app badge number each day for tasks that may not be due for hours. Would rate at least 4 stars if that was available.
Favor Please
by C Chardonai on 2021/08/06 05:06
I would love to give this application rave reviews... And I came so close.. Until... I realized that I cannot sync it to my AppleWatch because it is not compatible with my AppleWatch. So.. I looked to find something that would be compatible: someway to get the watch to use a different application to sync .. But I can find none. Could/would you please help me to establish a detente between Microsoft todo, my AppleWatch and my iPhone?! 🙏🏻 Most sincerely, Chardonai
Love this app, but it does crash a lot
by Quetzalle on 2021/08/05 13:43
I use this app constantly so I feel bad not giving 5 stars, but it does crash multiple times per day for me most days. It seems to have a hard time with links in the notes field (crashes when I open the note and scroll to the bottom) and notes with a lot of large sub-notes. Otherwise love it.

Needs an indent feature to allow for parent / child tasks, which can be scheduled independently
by Family Man - Clay on 2021/08/04 03:50
Sometimes a task requires many sub tasks that need to be scheduled. Current subtasks cannot be scheduled. One idea would be to create (1) parent task and then create many tasks, which would act as child tasks to the parent. You could do this by indenting or linking the child tasks to the single parent tasks so that you could schedule the child tasks independently. With this solution, your parent task could be a milestone and the supporting child tasks are the events helping you to achieve that milestone
Best list program ever
by Ynkybaby33 on 2021/08/03 12:58
I absolutely love this app!!! It does exactly what I want it to do, shares in real time with only the people you invite to each list, updates in real time. I use this for so many things. Great for family grocery list as well as soooo many others. I am a “list person” and this is my favorite app ❤️❤️❤️
No
by Mskalsnsoan on 2021/08/03 02:53
Do not download this app. They can’t seem to fix the bug that deletes all of your lists/tasks from time to time. It sounds like a good option, it’s not. It will delete info on you at the most inconvenient time. I’ve read it goes as far back as 2016.
Love this App

by zerrot-54-cc on 2021/07/31 13:17
But yesterday all of my lists went away! And my account has a different name attached to it. I reached out to MS and nothing, no response, no how to get my name back on my account and this false name off and get all of my lists back! Today I would NOT recommend this app!
Needs to Support Multiple Accounts
by Hdjsksjfnr on 2021/07/31 01:19
I have a school account and a personal account and I like to keep the two separate for organizational purposes. Apparently I have to continually switch back and forth between accounts to see the tasks associated with each account. It would be much easier to see them all in one place - similar to what we can do with email. Until this happens, I’ll find a different app to use, but everything else was great.
Love love love this

My favorite to do list manager !
Glitch and design
by Jimbday on 2021/07/29 14:31
I use this daily. It’s good enough. Cons: If re-ordering subtasks under a task on iPhone, the sub task occasionally disappears off the list when you release your thumb. It pops up on the main tasks list. Also too easy to mark something as complete accidentally. If you think you’ve made this mistake, it becomes difficult to find because you can’t sort all tasks (even crossed out tasks) by completion date.
Pretty Good
by AJBigCool on 2021/07/28 20:44
This app works pretty well, but it does come with a few flaws. For some reason, sometimes it just kind of forgets what time you set for a reminder, and it can also forget to change the reminder to the next day, disabling the time set for that day. I also just found out that it’s basically impossible to change the background of a list on the mobile version, I have to do it on my computer.
Took Wunderlist, made it worse
by justinrules on 2021/07/28 00:50
Way to go Microsoft. Taking wonderlist, turning into a slower, glitchier, worse app.
Complated
by heaveneatth on 2021/07/27 23:28
I like this app. If possible can you add how many completed task .always I calculated sometimes i am confusing.if i can see how many i completed to do.it will be good
It’s great but Watch app missing
by Linsiris on 2021/07/27 20:26
It’s one if the best, fast, reliable, easy to use, sort and organize BUT the apple watch app/complication is overdue!
App needs attention
by Radar loop on 2021/07/26 22:38
Very quirky. Basic app is fine but you can be typing notes and it switches to another task so the information ends up in the wrong location. Happens weekly….or you are typing and it jumps to another location. Wake up Microsoft and fix what could be a great app Also it would be helpful if you could put certain notes in Bold or color.
Doesn’t Sync
by dylan kreigh on 2021/07/26 17:47
Tasks don’t sync across web, iPhone, and Mac apps. I can get the list names to sync but not individual tasks.
Stoped sending notifications
by MoverMdren on 2021/07/25 20:53
It used to be an excellent app. I noticed recently it does not send iOS notifications of repeating tasks - no banner, nothing in iOS notification center. What is a point of a task reminder that does not send notifications?
Super easy to use!
by Viajera99 on 2021/07/22 17:48
This is an excellent app for list making, keeping all the lists in one place (on my phone) and I live the “Ding!” chime that it makes when I check off an item - sense of accomplishment, check! 😎✅ The only drawback is that I can only organize the lists two ways - alphabetical or by date created. It would be nice to have more options on how to organize. For example, when I go grocery shopping, I normally go to a bulk store and then also to a regular grocery store. It would be nice to be able to subdivide my grocery list into two lists, one for each store.
Great Application
by Carroju1 on 2021/07/22 16:53
We use To Do to share a grocery list. I love that, because when you need something, you add it to the list and then whoever goes to the store gets it and removes it. It prevents over buying items. I also list all my medications here as well as a list for “Travel Needs” for our trips. I love it!
Erased Tasks
by Zoom DR on 2021/07/22 10:45
I spent a significant amount of time entering tasks in to this app. Suddenly one day after an update, no tasks listed anywhere. I can’t recommend this app with randomly erasing tasks.
Does it have a widget?
by zilinzheng on 2021/07/22 00:21
Can’t find its widget even though MS Tech Support said they have it. Anybody?
Just one little thing…
by t-rowe USU on 2021/07/21 21:50
I like this app and it’s overall functionality works well for me. One recommendation I would have is to let people change the sound for completing a task. Maybe you have more options or people could add their own sound. The ding is nice but some customization would be great. How some clapping or cheering?
Too easy to delete
by RaeM Des on 2021/07/21 16:12
With this app I find myself accidentally deleting to do items just by touching them. They instantly disappear and sometimes I’m not even aware it’s happened. I need a confirmation question before they disappear.
Really cool
by johnja02 on 2021/07/20 18:59
This thing is really cool
Why Must I Sign In With a Microsoft Account to Use?
by SummerWisps on 2021/07/19 22:02
Ricidulous. You have to sign in to use the app, which initially is acceptable. But, I got logged out somehow and can’t use the app until I sign back in. Might not be a big deal to someone who uses simple, easy-to-remember passwords, but I’m not that person. Uggh.
Tracking
by Mr Potters on 2021/07/18 22:00
I will not allow any app to track me! Period! deleted every one of these apps from every apple product I own…
To Do List
by onablaK on 2021/07/18 21:40
Never have to use sticky notes again!
FINALLY Matches & Surpasses Wunderlist!
by LYAppleUser on 2020/06/04 16:08
This morning, the creators of “Microsoft To Do” FINALLY fixed enough of the features on this app to meet my former expectations of “Wunderlist!” “Microsoft To Do” (at first) had a lot of fun new features like colorful backgrounds for lists, and a few more sorting options, but was still missing some of the BASICS I enjoyed in “Wunderlist:” Here are my favorite two: 1) Being able to quickly recover a RECENTLY checked-off item at the TOP of the completed items, within a given list. Example: In “To Do” completed items were initially only alphabetized. I have an ongoing (reusable) grocery list including HUNDREDS of products. I even number them, by aisle, to ensure I see them “in order.” (Even if I’m in a different store, it still, at least, “categorizes” them together). But an “accidentally checked off” item, while shopping, was virtually GONE (until I got home & realized what was missing). This was fixed! Now I can just look at the TOP of the completed list. And, 2) Now I can see upcoming tasks separated out BY DAYS. In the past, anything beyond tomorrow was lumped together. Now, just like in Wunderlist, I can quickly find an upcoming day to which a task can be quickly moved/reassigned. And one of my favorite NEWER features of “To Do:” if you want certain tasks to recur/repeat in the future, say, only Mondays Wednesdays & Fridays (as opposed to once a week, or once a day) it can do this! Very cool. Keep up the great work!
Best To-Do List App I have Found
by TheZZman2000 on 2019/10/16 14:17
I would have to say that overall Microsoft To-Do is a fantastic app and definitely the best to-do list app I have used. They make it very easy for someone with an ever growing and changing list of things that need to be done to organize everything in their life. For example: I have my main tasks listed in the default list but I also have a list for each of the jobs I work, and a group with lists for all of my college classes and their assignments. And the best part is you can view everything that needs to be done today, tomorrow, next week, and later from all of those lists all on one page in the “Planned” tab. This app also works really well across multiple platforms by instantly syncing changes. I use it on my iPhone, iPad, and Windows PC. A main feature I would really love to see added for the versions on iOS and iPadOS is the ability to add Microsoft To-Do to your widgets this way you can see and check things off your list all right from your home screen. My biggest complaint is that whenever you add a task from the “Planned” tab it defaults to being due yesterday??? But overall it’s a to-do list app and I think you would have a really difficult time finding a better one out there.
Not Terrible but There’s Issues
by nyx74 on 2020/03/05 22:16
So I’m trying to wean myself off Wunderlist to the To Do app and while it’s not terrible there are issues. For one I’m not crazy about the Planned section at all. If anything it feels cluttered and unorganized. The earlier tab brings up tasks I’ve not set dates for and ironically haven’t used recently but the only way I can remove them is by marking them as complete and 100% eliminating them. So unless I want to continuously create a new shopping task rather than edit the preexisting one in my earlier tab I guess they’ll have to hang around uselessly in Planned. The other issue I have with Planned is how jumbled up the rest of the week looks when you’re trying to see what tasks are coming up. In Wunderlist your week was sectioned into days and your tasks were allotted to those days. Now the tasks are all piled together under one tab that accounts for most of the week and it just seems like unnecessary clutter. The other issues I came across was that “My Day” doesn’t auto populate which seems rather redundant and I preferred when the important tasks moved to the top of the lists. It would also be really awesome to move the tasks assigned to each day in an order of importance if that became available. I know To Do is still an app in progress but I do rely upon my planners a lot and hope it eventually becomes as successful as the beloved Wunderlist.
Game Changer
by friedlawyer on 2020/08/17 04:00
This app is extremely useful and, unlike many apps that are merely fun and interesting, this one could literally change your life or business if applied thoughtfully. It has some features built in which seem to follow suggestions from mainstream best sellers on organization such as one of my personal favorites: Getting Things Done by David Allen. I know it is based off another program which I never owned. I use the app on my iPhone, iPad and two versions on my desktop—one in a web browser and an iOS app. All four versions have similar features but actually have some extra features you gave to search for almost like a treasure hunt! The browser version allows you to copy tasks and next steps which allows you to create templates for repeated tasks. You can share lists with friends/co-workers as well to delegate next-steps. I recommend you explore the program thoroughly before spending time making detailed lists—there are a few things it cannot do, and knowing what they are helps you to organize your lists properly. I am still exploring the program but have been using it with a lot of success. Good luck. I’m sure Microsoft will continue to improve the program over time.
Works well just needs a few tweaks!
by djun13l on 2020/04/18 14:08
I used to write all my checklists on paper pads and cross things out and then throw away the papers when I was done, but this app is perfect! I can make organized categories of checklists so I can have multiple ongoing lists, and I like that items can be pinned to My Day for what I need to get done today specifically. And the checked off sound is great! My only complaints are that the UI could use some small adjustments. I like to check off items, but then after, I have to delete them. I personally don't think both are necessary but my main issue is that it takes a while to delete items! If I've completed a bunch of items then I have to spend several minutes deleting each one. Also, it's a little difficult to swipe the menu open, I frequently end up unintentionally moving the position of one list item so then they get scrambled, if I didn't accidentally combine two items and have to delete and re-add one. And of course when I want to rearrange the items, they don't want to insert to the bottom of the list either. I'm hoping these things will get fixed over time but so far I'm enjoying the app!
Needs a lot of work
by Isami87 on 2018/05/02 12:44
I am a physician and a scientist who requires a good to-do app to keep everything straight on a daily basis. Wunderlist was really the perfect tool for this, allowing me to organize and share tasks with lab members and clinical colleagues. When I learned it would eventually replace wunderlist, I decided to give To-Do a solid try. I imported all my lists from wunderlist, familiarized myself with all of To-Do’s features, and used it in place of Wunderlist for a good week. Unfortunately, a year after it’s unveiling, To-Do still needs a lot of work. The lack of a way to group related lists and the inability to automatically place tasks that are due today into the “my day” folder are critical deficiencies. Sure you can click the lightbulb in the “my day” folder and select all the upcoming tasks with the help of “suggestions,” but many (like me) cant remember to do that on a daily basis. The point of a to-do app is to make remembering all of your daily tasks unnecessary. I had so many issues with missing things (I literally have a hundred tasks some days) that I had to switch back to Wunderlist within a week. I know that the Microsoft team is working hard on To-Do behind the scenes. I plan to keep checking in and switch to to-do once it truly integrates all the features of wunderlist.
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.
Feature requests below! App’s only for sharpshooters and
by Dangggd on 2021/08/23 06:40
Hey does your team still take feature requests? Get the product owner over here! 1. I’m no iOS dev but consider allowing us to snap items to the bottom of a list by letting go anywhere in the space below the last list item. My lists are short, 7-8 items, likely even more. But it’s really annoying to drag an item down and miss the invisible space that it’s meant to slot in. I prefer not requiring a license as an elite sharpshooter to append items at the bottom. An MVP feature may be a fading border effect. i.e. I’d like to scroll down quickly and fling the last item to the bottom with less precision. 2. Here’s another innovative idea you should user test. What if you make your todo items more like a diary? Give me a calendar to review the things I’ve done the days before. Don’t make users input a time. Just automatically save the time for them. Only sequence matters, from first day’s task to the last thing they do. Maybe an innovation lab might be good for these ideas to research and test.
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!
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
Frustrated!
by Dust907601 on 2020/04/18 17:34
I am so frustrated with Microsoft To Do! It has been extremely frustrating trying to import my lists to Microsoft To Do from Wunderlist. It will not store any of my image files within the app, but says I can import them onto my phone or computer as a file, which defeats the purpose of having a list for things that need files. For instance, I have a dietary food chart that I need to refer to frequently. The app does not allow for this due to the file size being too large. I enjoy making lists of gift ideas or future things I wish to order with a web site or image on my list. It will not allow for any of this, which has caused me to no longer have access to these lists. I did download these as a file but it is not in list form but just a mis mash list of images one after another. Also, another frustration is that when I simply wanted to invite my husband to share a grocery list with me, it ended up inviting a whole group of my contacts that were added automatically somehow. I miss the ease of Wunderlist and hope that Microsoft can update this app to make it at least as good as Wunderlist was.
Tasks and Outlook
by NB Unicorn on 2020/08/11 13:02
Hello - I love tasks, however it doesn’t community to email as I would like. It doesn’t allow me to create a note/task tied directly to an email. Every email that comes in has action items tied to it. So if we had the ability to add a Note/task to that email, it would help us focus on the actionable items of importance. If we open 100 emails a day, that’s a lot of action items. And if we wanted to prioritize those actions of importance, we need an organized way to see those actions. So the tasks would appear in 2 locations exactly the same. Duplicate. One on the task bar as it is today, and the other would appear as a icon of some sort on the email itself. Could you add an icon on the email options for “tasks/notes” with time and date stamps on them so we can get even more strategic on what we are completing first. Also, if we do get the option to create an action task for email, can that option also be made available for the mobile app. I try and work on my phone as often as I can however it’s not as efficient as the desktop applications.
Merely populates iPhone Reminders
by billy'n'holly on 2020/05/11 11:12
I’ll give this app 2-stars because it doesn’t crash ... but seriously, why would anyone WANT to quit using the superior Wunderlist for this half-effort? Any item you create is stored in the iPhone Reminders as a to-do, but neither scheduled nor shared with associates. Items are not entered by default with a due date, and even if you do add a due or reminder date, they’ll disappear from “today” and don’t carry over to tomorrow, so you must manually add any tasks from a single list of ALL tasks. If you mark an item with a star ... well that’s meaningless. And should you open your iPhone Reminders, you’ll find 100’s of stored there, thereby making simple reminders (like “go to bed”) lost amongst the work tasks that didn’t require being spammed through the Reminders app, not to mention now your to-do of “turn in report” has the same unimportant notification appearance, sound, and limited snooze options as “pick up kids from school”. Utterly worthless and a lesson for how to drive away millions of customers so an app exists solely to have O365 but without any of Wunderlist’s functionality. What a waste.
Missing the “PRINT LIST” feature! Frustrated...
by ABerry83 on 2020/03/10 01:45
I am a Wunderlist user who (like many many others) was forced to migrate to Microsoft To Do. I had for years used Wunderlist’s “PRINT LIST” option which allows me to print about a dozen or so weekly cleaning and chore lists for around the house DIRECTLY from my iPhone via AirPrint and send all my checklists to my home printer wirelessly—complete with indented tasks, sub-tasks, task notes, page numbers, neatly organized checkboxes next to each item, and even a proper header and footer with the date my list was printed, etc.; however, this same option to print is NOT available in Microsoft To Do which is very frustrating since I have use this feature on a weekly basis for years now. I had spent a significant amount of time creating detailed lists for other things such as an “RV Checklist” and others. Now, since we are forced to move away from Wunderlist to the lessor Microsoft To Do app, I will have to spend time finding and migrating again over to another better app that allows me a simple option to directly print my lists from my iPhone via AirPrint straight to my networked home printer.
Keeps getting better
by Scotteeboy on 2020/04/06 04:33
This app is so well supported, with constant interactions at it’s worth checking out - especially if you work within Microsoft 365 and the Microsoft ecosystem. That said, the more information it brings in, the more it needs to allow you to filter the info. That’s where it has some shortcomings. To make this a great app I’d like to see better filtering capabilities so I can filter the info I need to see across lists (even if the tasks are coming from Planner). I’d like to move planner tasks into various lists. I’d like a list of my tags so I don’t have to guess at what tags I’ve got out there. Saved items from Teams should also be brought into To-do in the same way planner tasks are brought in. And of course, there should be option to automatically populate My Day. I understand why this feature is missing but it needs to be an option if the user wants it. That would help take some of the manual work out of using My Day. Thanks again to the To Do team.
Serves its purpose
by Dang Hazelnut on 2019/02/11 23:18
My husband and I have been looking for an app that accommodates to our meal-planning. This one is by far the best due to a simple user interface, convenient checklist, uncomplicated tools, and online account integration. Although what we use is very different than what this app is intended for, it’s exactly what we need. We are removing one star because we find it difficult to retype all the entries for other lists. Having a copy-and-paste feature would be wonderful. Another feature we would like to see is an option to set which page is defaulted when opening the app. Right now, it’s “My Day” and we would like to be able to see the entire list page when we open the app. Lastly, we would love to see an expanded collection of colors and themes. Heck, I would love for it to be completely customizable where we can select photos from our camera roll. Looking forward to what the future updates this app has to offer!
Almost five stars...
by •CiCi• on 2020/06/08 18:45
This app is really nice for lots of reasons. One of these is, it's completely free! Which is super nice because I tried to find other planner apps however you HAD to get premium on all of them which made me really upset. Also, with this app, you can create a custom repeat unlike other apps where you can only repeat daily or weekly etc. I also really enjoy how organized it is. It's great for multiple things like, goal tracking, to do, school work, and much more! I didn't give it five stars because, 1. I was really hoping that I would be able to make the tasks diffrent colors or diffrent fonts not that this is totally important but I think it would make it more enjoyable for me. And 2. When you get into the app you have to long into your Microsoft account. Which isn't a big deal however, I did not have one before so it was a very long process to create one. 3. You cant use your personal photos as the theme background.
The switch
by redneckteck on 2021/08/11 02:52
Well I also had a difficult time after Wunderlist. But with the updates and my persistent efforts I got ToDo to work close to Wunderlist in fact with a little more options. I was very frustrated to begin with but very satisfied now in fact more so. Even got my daughter who used Wunderlist set up like mine and she to is satisfied with it now. It was a long haul to get it working. I don’t read instructions I play till it’s what I want. Now that I have had To Do since it was first introduction I love it. I have many stores with lists for shopping items on each. I also use it for reminders. Love the way it lists separately the stores and items for each I shopping at more than one store. When I complete each item at each store I just tap and it returns to my list for that store so don’t have to keep adding. You can also use it for appointments. Highly recommend.
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.
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.
Half-Baked
by Grogboshi on 2018/03/08 02:16
This app and its web counterpart need a lot more work. It would be great if they combined it with Outlook Tasks and Planner into a single task management system, akin to Todoist. The app needs natural language support, a desktop Mac client, tie-ins with Teams to create tasks and projects directly from Teams, and tasks dated for today need to be automatically added to My Day so everything due in a given day is all in one place, rather than looking from list to list. It would also be great if it had a general Inbox to add tasks to as they come to mind and then organize later, like GTD prescribes. List sharing would be another big boost, especially for businesses if it’s linked to Teams, so that projects could be organized through ToDo and tasks managed. Apps like TickTick or Todoist show how powerful task management systems can also be easy to use and good for both individuals and businesses. Hopefully this app will follow in their footsteps and replace the myriad Microsoft task and project management options that currently exist (Outlook Tasks, Planner, To-Do), like Microsoft is doing consolidating Lync, Skype, and Teams.
Steps are headed in the right direction but…
by middlenameray on 2018/04/13 20:26
With the addition of steps/subtasks, we’re definitely getting closer to this app replicating the full functionality Wunderlist (need folders and shared notes support to make it complete). But there’s a weird glitch in the app and the steps keep disappearing/reappearing. Sometimes they show, sometimes they don’t. The first time I reopened the app after creating some steps on one of my to-dos I thought they didn’t take, so I added them again, then they vanished again on another reload, so I added them again. Turns out, when I opened the To-Do web client, the original steps I added and ALL the duplicate entries saved to the cloud like they were supposed to but don’t always populate on screen on the phone. What a productivity nightmare. Add a new step? They all appear again. Rearrange the to-dos? Disappear. If this bug can be squashed I’ll give the app a fourth star. I’ll be screenshotting any to-dos with steps in the meantime so I can be sure I can reference them when I’m on the go.
You just broke it! You changed the basic functionality from REPETITIVE list to ONE-OFF
by GrooverKing on 2020/05/05 13:49
The latest up(down?)date removed the ability to SHOW ALL items together and SORT the list while selecting items. This capability was a huge improvement over Wunderlist and was the only reason we switched. We use To Do for groceries. The list is over a hundred items because we buy the same stuff again and again. Using the completed list, we just find and uncheck what we are out of instead of tediously typing it in each time. Before this update, ‘Show Completed’ items mixed the two lists, in alpha order and we could quickly find items to add, stuff we forgot but need, and stuff added twice! The latest update ruined that functionality, and now it takes longer to make a list than just sending a text. The ‘Completed’ list is now randomly arranged, and can’t be sorted. Please restore the combined sort capability as an option for users who need a shareable list of REPETITIVE items, like grocery lists or household tasks or weekly agendas or repair parts.......
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.
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
Simple and effective
by ItsPavlo on 2021/08/13 17:14
I don’t normally leave reviews but hopefully this can help someone like me, who has trouble staying organized and planning things if they aren’t written down. I much prefer pen and paper, but in today’s digital age it’s not realistic to always have both on hand and easily accessible. First of all, I’ve tried so many different task apps over the years (both paid and free) and I’m so happy to have finally settled on this one. The interface is very simple; you just type and press enter and your task is set. Additionally, you may opt to set reminders and due dates, either at time of writing or later. My favorite feature is the Siri compatibility, so I can always add things even if I can’t type at that moment. Next, this app wins because I no longer have to browse through a bunch of different lists and categories to see what needs to be done urgently; I can see exactly what needs to be done today, next week, and next month. I can also see what doesn’t have a due date, and one can be assigned later. The ability to sort by lists and urgency simultaneously is phenomenal. Finally, I only use Apple products and this syncs flawlessly across my iPhone, iPad, iWatch, and MacBook. Overall, this app does wonders for my productivity. Keep it simple!
Missing One Critical Feature!!
by Kaspa7 on 2018/10/02 04:26
I love the simple yet pretty layout of this app, and I love that I can create different categories (work, school, personal) while having a “My Day” area that shows me ALL tasks that I need to complete that day. Beautiful! HOWEVER, any task you put a due date on does NOT automatically show up in My Day once that day arrives! So even if I put a task as “due tomorrow”, once tomorrow comes it will not show up in My Day. So basically every single morning I have to go through my various lists and add tasks manually to My Day. The whole point of having a due date for me is to “set it and forget it”. It’s too exhausting to add each task manually every day. Doesn’t it make sense that if a task is DUE TODAY that it should appear in the MY DAY folder? Drives me crazy!! I also wish it would have a badge app icon showing me how many tasks are on My Day for the day, so I can have a quick glance just from the home screen of how many tasks I still have to complete that day.
Improving, update by update
by cierrabrooke on 2018/12/01 15:41
To-Do has definitely improved from my first download a year ago, but there are still key features that keep me with Wunderlist (app/company was acquired by Microsoft and that team now works on To-Do). Pros of To-Do that have me looking forward to a move from Wunderlist: - Dropped the skeuomorphic design - Has Wunderlist import feature (some reviews say this is still a little buggy) - The font is clean and visually pleasing Features Wunderlist has that To-Do still needs: - Folders and nesting for lists: I prefer to break out different projects and responsibilities within my work list - Option for a scrolling calendar wheel, or the ability to have weeks start on Monday, not Sunday when setting task due dates. I’m fine with the “Pick a date” calendar option, but I would SO prefer the ability to have this calendar have Mondays to start weeks. I’ve been able to do this in Outlook, so I know you can add this feature 😊 - Ability to update profile photo: Currently cannot update the standard avatar - Variety of neutral backgrounds: With To-Do, the background of the “Important” list cannot be altered. For now it’s an uneditable purple space telescope theme. I tried to swap every list to be a plain neutral blue with no cartoon drawings. Some people may love the cartoons, but I need more neutral color options and just want to focus on my to dos, especially the ones I’ve noted are most important!
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.
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.
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.)
could be better
by Jessesaint on 2020/01/03 09:12
A lot simpler and easier to use than OneNote for task, however I'd really like the option to hide "my day". I have zero interest in using it and would much rather have the mobile and desktop app's open into my first tab/ group. Please, it's always in the way and extremely annoying. Like OneNote, both apps need a trash can/ recently deleted, it's extremely careless for the developers not to include one as I've lost a few well-written notes over this non-including of an EXTREMELY important feature. Not even an undo option, issues with shake to undo, really??? At least To Do has an "are you sure you want to delete?", but it's not enough. Also can't figure out how to delete unintentional created groups in the mobile app, only on the desktop app... Okay? All around it's better then what's out there, just a few tedious important features missing for me to give it a complete five stars. also I don't know what your problem is, but if I take my time to drag and drop something it would be great if you didn't make it JUMP BACK TO THE END.
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!
A simple reminders app is just what most of us need.
by e10. with a lightning port. on 2018/10/14 08:43
I started looking for a reminders app when I realized that the calendar’s “up next” widget contains reminders as well, so I deleted reminders and started looking elsewhere. Most of the reminders apps I’ve seen are either really simple, too complicated, or have complex tasks and just useless stuff locked behind a paywall. Microsoft’s ToDo is not the best app for the job, but it’s at least got the basics down, doesn’t lock it in a paywall, and doesn’t make it super complex. I would still like having location based reminders like on the Apple app, but I’ll forgive it. It still has: Reminders based on time, repeating reminders daily-weekly-monthly-yearly, notes, and color coded reminders groups. Yes, I wish it had location reminders, and that it didn’t force me to have it’s “Tasks” group, but it really is all you need. It’s basic, and that’s good.
Bleh
by B to the fourth on 2020/04/05 13:17
I was a Wunderlist user and I used it for very simple things - groceries, personal to-do’s, etc. Light, simple use. Loved Wunderlist. I’ve experienced Issues with this app that seem very basic to me, though. For example: - Synching is buggy. I share several lists with my wife and somehow we end up with lists that aren’t exactly the same sometimes. Just got home from the grocery store, wife’s list has hamburger buns, mine didn’t. Watched as we synched again and still not on my list. Of course additional trips to the grocery store are now not so routine. - when I toggle the app to show items crossed off a list, that works. When I toggle back to not showing them it freezes. Every. Single. Time. - it won’t let me move something to the very bottom of the list. Have to move it to second to last, then move the last item up one. - seems very easy to inadvertently cross something off when scrolling compared to Wunderlist. - the nesting feature seems nice in concept, but it’s very easy to accidentally nest something under another to-do item when moving things around on an iPhone, and for the life of me I can’t figure out how to un-nest it. So, stuck with deleting it and adding it again. I would expect some bugs from a fairly new app but seems like Microsoft should be able to do better than the average little app builder. So, we’re gonna use Wunderlist until we can’t then find something else.
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!
Repeating Tasks Repeatedly Disappear
by quantumofsolace on 2019/02/12 19:06
In the couple of months I've used the app, I've had to re-enter repeating tasks several (3-4) times. It seems to only affect daily tasks but I'm not 100 on that. At some point after I complete a repeating task, the app doesn't repopulate the task for the next iteration. So if I have a task that says "go to the gym" and I check it as completed, sometimes the task shows up the next day and sometimes it doesn't. I don't know exactly when this happens because it's hard to notice a single missing task. (At least for me –i have about 25 repeating tasks.) I assume there's a bug somewhere but it shouldn't take two months for a major corporation to fix it, especially since this is basic functionality for a task app. I should have known the app would be extra when I had to reimport my tasks from Wunderlist 3 times. That process should have been infinitely easier since Microsoft develops both Wunderlist and To Do. I had intended to transition to To Do but I think I'll stick with Wunderlist for the moment.
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.
Same as Wunderlist
by AskLifeCoach on 2020/05/16 19:05
I was a HUGE Wunderlist fan for years. It was my most useful app. I deleted the stock lists and made my own lists. It’s for more than shopping and TODO lists. I use it for lots of “HOW to do lists”. Meaning lists I follow to close up the cabin in the fall and other lists to open it in the spring. There is no limit to the type or purpose of lists you can create to make your life easier. The big benefit is the ability to check mark ✅ an item to add to a list and check mark ✅ it when it’s finished. This means a list only needs to be typed in one time. I was devastated when I was told Wunderlist was going away, replaced by this app. Ultimately only the name and colors have changed. This is every bit as good as Wunderlist and honestly, it’s even a bit better.
Off to a great start, but needs maturing.
by TheRamius on 2019/07/10 18:26
Pros: - User friendly for what it offers - Fluid, simple interface. Isn’t confusing to know what you’re doing. - Easy to prioritize tasks - Each task can be broken up into items (very useful for projects and/purchasing) Cons - Minimal navigation ability on completed tasks. Only way to navigate completed tasks is by opening up a list where it’s all dumped into. It may be in chronological order, but it’s difficult to know for sure. This leads me to my second issue... - Completed tasks don’t have a date of completion listed next to it unless you click on the individual task. So if you want to know what you completed in a particular week a couple months ago, you have to keep clicking on items until you find the date of interest. It isn’t clear however in what order the completed tasks are arranged. - As of today there is a bug which keeps you from deleting a repeated task in bulk. I accidentally set a reminder for the next 20 years and it generated tasks for every day for the next 20 years. I couldn’t delete them or remove them from my completed tasks list. I’m sure this would be a relatively simple fix. - If you don’t click something as completed the day it was completed, you cannot go back and edit. It only shows the date you clicked completed.
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!
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.
Extremely Disappointed with the Sorting Features
by Chris528F on 2020/03/19 01:00
I would give this app 5 stars if only after sorting by importance, I could then sort the list more finely by moving the important items in the order I want them. I could do this with Wunderlist, but I can’t do it with Microsoft To Do. I really don’t understand why it is so hard for the Microsoft team to make this change. I use the list for groceries and I have a over 200 items. By starring the items I want, it moves them to the top of the list. But then they are all a jumble. Thus if I have 20 items on my grocery list, I constantly have to be scanning the list and I find myself walking back and forth around the store because the list is not in order. If I were able to sort the grocery items I want to buy, by aisle, after sorting them by importance, it would make the shopping process so much easier and more efficient. I am pleading with you Microsoft, to make this change.
A Pinch From the Finish Line
by icuragoose on 2018/01/06 21:39
(There is now iPad support!) I have loved Wunderlist, and Microsoft aims to replace it. The features in To Do are remarkably similar and familiar to Wunderlist users with simplicity and minimalism at its core. With a slimmed-down UI, there's less to distract you and with the flawlessly smooth and responsive controls, you feel like you have a firm grasp on your system. Everything is intuitive and inviting. In addition, I'm from Seattle, so I appreciate the themes. Right now the only things missing for my own workflow is the ability to have folders and sublists. This is my last reservation for using this app and once this is complete (both are planned), I can officially utilize this as a Wunderlist replacement. Once I use this in my workflow, I will be most excited about the "My Day" feature. I can use that in tandem with my office' implementation of Kanban to help me see what I committed to getting done today. I can see this being useful for O365 organizations as well, since it can replace the Outlook tasks, pull assigned tasks from Planner, have inputs with Teams (i.e. Right click a message and select "Create Task") I'm excited to see where this goes as I wait patiently for the product to bake. Until then, three stars is about where it's at as of now--little more than a college student's obligatory first app.
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!
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.
