  • FINALLY Matches & Surpasses Wunderlist! Jun 4, 2020

    By LYAppleUser
    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!

    Exceptional and robust productivity app by Microsoft. The app is packed with features that seamlessly integrate with Microsoft services. Keep up with your flagged emails, make dynamic lists, customize the appearance of the indicidual lists, create shared lists.. I could not be more happy with an app in this category. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a solid "to-do" list app that is much more than a glorified notepad. 10/10 stars if possible.

    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.

    This is an excellent task tracker for small projects. The notes section is critical to keeping track of specifics and notations. I also use it to keep track of correspondence with vendors. It would be even better to have a date/timestamp feature that I can use when documenting phone calls. Right now, I have to manually key in the date and time before I make notes. In some instances I can have multiple phone calls for one task. I've had software in the past with that feature and it's great!
  • Best To-Do List App I have Found Oct 16, 2019

    By TheZZman2000
    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.

    SUCH a good app, very organized, ability to create lists within groups/categories, add sub-steps to each task, due dates, reminders, notifications you can't just swipe away, etc. A lot of thought has clearly gone into this app, and I sincerely appreciate it! The only feature I'd like is to see all my tasks in "all tasks," regardless of whether they're assigned to a list or not; I personally like seeing a bird's eye view of everything I need to do. Keep up the good work Microsoft!!
  • Not Terrible but There’s Issues Mar 5, 2020

    By nyx74
    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.

    I never thought I'd turn to Microsoft for the optional task tracker but here I am! I used Any.Do for a weekly but it was "too helpful" and pushed me into a corner. Switched to Google Tasks which has nice integration with Gmail and Google calendar but was too simple for a power user. This app is just right. It does the simple things with ease, allows for ample customization, let's you set up your day like any.do without being too inflexible, and has decent cross platform integrations.
  • So close to perfect! Needs location awareness/geofencing Jan 21, 2021

    By mikedoitunes
    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!

    Extremely easy to use and navigate. Does exactly what I need it to do except for the home screen widget. Often times the widget will lock to one of the tabs (such as "my day") and will not respond. The only correction I have found is to remove the widget from the home screen and re-add it. Would love for this to be corrected.
  • NEEDS a way to create to do list for next day or future date BEFORE that day! Oct 9, 2021

    By lulu008
    This is a good task management list but it’s for me, it’s missing some glaring features that are crucial to successful task planning and to general success. They include being able to create/ plan/ set a to do list for a future date BEFORE THAT DAY (even being able to do this for JUST the next day would be a huge improvement). So because I can only set the tasks I want to do for a certain date ON THAT DAY, I either have to stay up till at least 12AM on that date to set my tasks for the day and in the order I want or I have to start doing that when I wake up and need to already have my day planned because it’s go, go, go or I could be doing other necessary things. On top of that, the “My Day” completely resets itself daily and keeps zero history of previous tasks you set so you can at least just add them back easily and in similar order since you don’t usually complete everything you plan for a day. No, the random suggestions pop up is not a good enough substitute. It’s sad that this is not available from such a big company like Microsoft so I bailed and found another app that has all these sensible missing features I mentioned and much more that’s developed and maintained by 1 person or so. I’m using that app exclusively now!

    This used to be an awesome simple app, especially before Microsoft took it over. I'm using a Google Pixel 6 and the widget does not work in many of the sizes and even when you get it to work, the next day it may show nothing on your list. When it does this you can't even click on the widget to get in to the app. I have the latest firmware and software updates as of 03 /23/22
  • Not bad but not good either Mar 23, 2020

    By Karid73
    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!!!!!!!

    There's a very annoying bug that hasn't been fixed for quite some time. You would be just looking at the My Day view and then the list of suggestions would pop up and down from the bottom of the screen repeatedly. It never stops and it can make it frustrating to use this view. Like how does this even pass your QA
  • Lost all my lists for no reason Jun 2, 2022

    By Legopika1
    I have no idea how or when this happened, recently I noticed that To-Do wouldn’t let me open the app without logging into my Microsoft account. I didn’t think much of it and just figured I’d been timed out or something. When I logged in I’m fairly certain my lists were all still there (again this was last week, so it’s blurry), but today when I opened the app, it has me signed into my Microsoft account at the top (which looks different, I don’t remember the app showing me my profile picture, it’s possible that it’s a different Microsoft account, but I only have this one, so idk what account my lists may actually be under; when I first downloaded the app I logged into one but I can’t remember why it wouldn’t be the same as the one I signed into it with last week). But now the app has no lists, whereas I had quite a few Ive been using for school and other personal notes and tasks. I really hope it’s not all lost, and that this is just a rectifiable error on my part. And actually, now that I remember, I have had the To-Do widget on my home page, and just yesterday it was showing me my lists, now it says I have nothing planned. Again, not sure what the issue here is, but I hope it can be fixed and I can recover my data!
  • Gets Cluttered Fast Dec 5, 2019

    By Skiskull
    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.

    I have a master grocery list sorted alphabetically. When I need an item I star it so that I can easily see what I need when in the store. Hover that list doesn't stay in alphabetical order. Still wish you would bring back the Wunderlist feature that would show you by category what is starred. I shop at several different stores and that was such a useful feature. it made my shopping trips so much more efficient as I could see if there was something I needed a any of the stores.

    It does what it says, but not easily or well. Its frustratin . I downloaded because they bought Wunderlist, and this is the replacement. It does not offer the same experience and is NOT a good replacement. From sorting, to reordering lists, to automatically seeing up tasks for the day, it misses the boat. And using the"suggest a feature" button is a nightmare! You have to login for every new page, and the attitude is "here's our way of doing it" and no changes get made. I will be changing apps.
  • Merely populates iPhone Reminders May 11, 2020

    By billy'n'holly
    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... Mar 10, 2020

    By ABerry83
    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.

Very cool. Keep up the great work!

  • Best To-Do List App I have Found Oct 16, 2019

    By TheZZman2000
    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.

    SUCH a good app, very organized, ability to create lists within groups/categories, add sub-steps to each task, due dates, reminders, notifications you can't just swipe away, etc. A lot of thought has clearly gone into this app, and I sincerely appreciate it! The only feature I'd like is to see all my tasks in "all tasks," regardless of whether they're assigned to a list or not; I personally like seeing a bird's eye view of everything I need to do. Keep up the good work Microsoft!!

    I never thought I'd turn to Microsoft for the optional task tracker but here I am! I used Any.Do for a weekly but it was "too helpful" and pushed me into a corner. Switched to Google Tasks which has nice integration with Gmail and Google calendar but was too simple for a power user. This app is just right. It does the simple things with ease, allows for ample customization, let's you set up your day like any.do without being too inflexible, and has decent cross platform integrations.
  • Works well just needs a few tweaks! Apr 18, 2020

    By djun13l
    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!

    Really great app. It syncs with all your Microsoft and Google accounts. It has a super easy format and a nice widget. And you can set up reminders and dates you want any task to repeat on it be finished by. There's no annoying ads like a lot of other similar apps have. I highly recommend it.

    Absolutely love this app and the many ways you can form a list. It's changed my life and how I use my mobile. I tried to get away from hand-written lists with various "notes" apps, but the lists got too long, too unwieldy, and too disorganized, and I couldn't sync across devices. To Do solved all those issues, and also allowed me to grab whichever one of my devices is closest at hand, without skipping a beat.
  • So close to perfect! Needs location awareness/geofencing Jan 21, 2021

    By mikedoitunes
    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!
  • Needs a lot of work May 2, 2018

    By Isami87
    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.

    My experience with the app itself, I would rate it 4 stars. Great little app for what it does. What would bring it to a five? A setting for Next Week to pick the day of my choice. Feature parity across clients. I recently reported a sync issue to tech support, worked with them for a week, and found the cause myself: an issue with the data and not the app. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon. Troubleshooting tools for Outlook tasks not syncing with To Do via Microsoft 365 would be nice!

    By Jesse Campbell
    It's a great app and very collaborative. I would like to see the option to set your reminder for whatever time you choose (day, hour, and minute) and a "location based" reminder would be excellent (i.e. "remind me when I arrive at: example address"). Still excellent and handy, though! I avidly appreciate the Microsoft family of products! Thank you MS Team

    Pretty good for quick reminders and to do lists. Some of the features aren't very intuitive especially the my day feature. Also better integration with outlook would be nice. Like if I made a task with a due date it would be cool to have the option for it to appear on my outlook calendar. Otherwise solid app and my go to
  • Keeps getting better Apr 6, 2020

    By Scotteeboy
    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 Feb 11, 2019

    By Dang Hazelnut
    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... Jun 8, 2020

    By •CiCi•
    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.
  • Lovely, except for sorting options Dec 30, 2019

    By GybeTack
    I switched to this app because my gTasks Pro app has become too slow at syncing (it syncs via Google tasks). I like the features and interface on Microsoft ToDo, and the syncing is lightning fast. A major problem, however, is the lack of flexibility in sorting. gTasks allows you to sort manually, which is highly effective. With Microsoft ToDo if I want to sort, for example, by “Importance”, and then have the tasks move to the bottom of the list when marked “Complete”, I’m out of luck. As a result, the list quickly becomes cluttered with completed tasks (if I sort by completed tasks the remaining uncompleted tasks have no sort order). I can manually drag a task anywhere I like, but it snaps back to it’s original location immediately. I’ve ended up going back to gTasks Pro for longer lists, and using this app for short lists only. It would be a 5 star app of the sorting option gets enhanced.
  • A simple reminders app is just what most of us need. Oct 14, 2018

    By e10. with a lightning port.
    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.
  • Not Terrible but There’s Issues Mar 5, 2020

    By nyx74
    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.

    Extremely easy to use and navigate. Does exactly what I need it to do except for the home screen widget. Often times the widget will lock to one of the tabs (such as "my day") and will not respond. The only correction I have found is to remove the widget from the home screen and re-add it. Would love for this to be corrected.
  • Not dependable, squirly Nov 10, 2020

    By nicujlc
    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.

    By Jim Quigley
    Like the app. Been using it for a few weeks now. Syncing across devices is great. The fatal flaw seems to be that using it is tied to OneDrive's quota. At least I think that is the problem. If your OneDrive is full, ToDo nags you. But when I click on "Learn More" it just takes me to Bing, not to a real help page. Like Google, Microsoft wants you to purchase extra storage. So they make it cumbersome to manage your free storage space on MsToDo, OneDrive and Outlook. Pity.
  • Not as Good as Wunderlist - Needs Improvement Mar 9, 2020

    By HeatherMDP
    I was a Wunderlist user for many, many years. When I upgraded to a new phone recently, I saw the notice that Wunderlist will be going away (sad face) and this will be its replacement. I was happy to be able to transfer all my lists easily to this new app. However, one of the biggest annoyances about this one is that I can’t manually rearrange my lists! It allows you to automatically arrange it by such things as alphabetically and importance (starred items). However, you can’t rearrange it further. For instance, if you have multiple items with stars, and you have the list sorted by importance, but you add a new starred item, it goes to the bottom of the starred items, and you can’t move it to the very top unless you change the entire order of all items (whether they are starred or not) by date of creation or something. But then, your starred items aren’t at the top anymore and are scattered throughout. This is sssooo annoying; it makes me not want to use this app at all. I want to be as loyal to this app as I was to Wunderlist. This is a big oversight in the design of this app. Until this is fixed, I can only give it 3 stars. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP!
  • Frustrated! Apr 18, 2020

    By Dust907601
    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.
  • Nice but feels unfinished (unlike Wunderlist) Mar 28, 2020

    By jpgeorge
    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.
  • Steps are headed in the right direction but… Apr 13, 2018

    By middlenameray
    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.
  • Over designed Jun 1, 2018

    By Unparadise
    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
  • Missing One Critical Feature!! Oct 2, 2018

    By Kaspa7
    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.
  • NEEDS a way to create to do list for next day or future date BEFORE that day! Oct 9, 2021

    By lulu008
    This is a good task management list but it’s for me, it’s missing some glaring features that are crucial to successful task planning and to general success. They include being able to create/ plan/ set a to do list for a future date BEFORE THAT DAY (even being able to do this for JUST the next day would be a huge improvement). So because I can only set the tasks I want to do for a certain date ON THAT DAY, I either have to stay up till at least 12AM on that date to set my tasks for the day and in the order I want or I have to start doing that when I wake up and need to already have my day planned because it’s go, go, go or I could be doing other necessary things. On top of that, the “My Day” completely resets itself daily and keeps zero history of previous tasks you set so you can at least just add them back easily and in similar order since you don’t usually complete everything you plan for a day. No, the random suggestions pop up is not a good enough substitute. It’s sad that this is not available from such a big company like Microsoft so I bailed and found another app that has all these sensible missing features I mentioned and much more that’s developed and maintained by 1 person or so. I’m using that app exclusively now!

  • Not bad but not good either Mar 23, 2020

    By Karid73
    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 Dec 5, 2019

    By Skiskull
    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.

    It does what it says, but not easily or well. Its frustratin . I downloaded because they bought Wunderlist, and this is the replacement. It does not offer the same experience and is NOT a good replacement. From sorting, to reordering lists, to automatically seeing up tasks for the day, it misses the boat. And using the"suggest a feature" button is a nightmare! You have to login for every new page, and the attitude is "here's our way of doing it" and no changes get made. I will be changing apps.
  • Merely populates iPhone Reminders May 11, 2020

    By billy'n'holly
    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... Mar 10, 2020

    By ABerry83
    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.
  • Half-Baked Mar 8, 2018

    By Grogboshi
    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.
  • Buggy still Apr 15, 2020

    By The Smitten Kitten
    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.)

    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.

    There's a very annoying bug that hasn't been fixed for quite some time. You would be just looking at the My Day view and then the list of suggestions would pop up and down from the bottom of the screen repeatedly. It never stops and it can make it frustrating to use this view. Like how does this even pass your QA
  • Lost all my lists for no reason Jun 2, 2022

    By Legopika1
    I have no idea how or when this happened, recently I noticed that To-Do wouldn’t let me open the app without logging into my Microsoft account. I didn’t think much of it and just figured I’d been timed out or something. When I logged in I’m fairly certain my lists were all still there (again this was last week, so it’s blurry), but today when I opened the app, it has me signed into my Microsoft account at the top (which looks different, I don’t remember the app showing me my profile picture, it’s possible that it’s a different Microsoft account, but I only have this one, so idk what account my lists may actually be under; when I first downloaded the app I logged into one but I can’t remember why it wouldn’t be the same as the one I signed into it with last week). But now the app has no lists, whereas I had quite a few Ive been using for school and other personal notes and tasks. I really hope it’s not all lost, and that this is just a rectifiable error on my part. And actually, now that I remember, I have had the To-Do widget on my home page, and just yesterday it was showing me my lists, now it says I have nothing planned. Again, not sure what the issue here is, but I hope it can be fixed and I can recover my data!

    I have a master grocery list sorted alphabetically. When I need an item I star it so that I can easily see what I need when in the store. Hover that list doesn't stay in alphabetical order. Still wish you would bring back the Wunderlist feature that would show you by category what is starred. I shop at several different stores and that was such a useful feature. it made my shopping trips so much more efficient as I could see if there was something I needed a any of the stores.
  • Microsoft suspended my account for no reason. Leaving me without access to my list. Oct 1, 2021

    By Argh iTunes and gimlet
    Wunderlist shutdown, like 2 years ago? I couldn’t bring myself to switch to the new Microsoft todo app, and continued using wunderlist without sync access. Well finally yesterday I needed to sync with other people, so I gave in, installed the app, and created a dreaded Microsoft live account. I spent 3 hours transferring things over, organizing, and coming up with new tasks with my wife for our upcoming huge trip. Then today happened. I tried opening the app to add something to my list, and boom! No more account. It’s been suspended for TOS violations. Huh? It’s a brand new account which I just verified yesterday. I tried going through the recovery process. Nope. They don’t like any of the phone numbers I gave them to recover. I contacted support. Nope. They can’t do anything other than walk me through same thing as website. My todo list is gone. I can’t even access a local copy of it. F Microsoft. They ruin everything they touch. I uninstalled it and will now find an alternative…. Then waste another afternoon rebuilding everything.

    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.
  • You just broke it! You changed the basic functionality from REPETITIVE list to ONE-OFF May 5, 2020

    By GrooverKing
    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.......
  • could be better Jan 3, 2020

    By Jessesaint
    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.
  • Repeating Tasks Repeatedly Disappear Feb 12, 2019

    By quantumofsolace
    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.
  • Finding another to do app today Mar 22, 2020

    By gillette411
    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.
  • Doesn’t hold a candle to Wunderlist Mar 10, 2019

    By snc68
    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.
