By taking users’ feedback into account, and with a mission to bring a more delightful, simpler, and more elegant daily task experience, Microsoft has finally unveiled a new version of To Do, which includes a fresh new design, access from wherever you are, and more integration with apps and services. Now let’s see what’s changed:
Microsoft has polished the design of To Do and given the app even more warmth and personalization, enabling users to tailor the app to suit their own taste and lists while also empowering them to not only change the app’s background, but also apply the Dark Mode across Android, Windows, Mac, and soon to iOS. This has dramatically freshened up the look of To Do, making it feel simple and modern at the same time.
What makes To Do unique is the personalized daily planner feature, My Day. It helps you accomplish what’s meaningful and important to you every day. Smart suggestions in My Day help you plan what you need to accomplish that day. And tomorrow? My Day will refresh, so you can start the day with a blank slate. Any tasks you didn’t complete will be waiting for you in suggestions.
To Do is available and syncs across all platforms, including Mac, iOS, Android, Windows, and the web. Now, wherever you are, you can take your lists with you. Commuting to work? Plan your day on your phone so you start work ready to check off all those tasks. And if you’re on Windows or Android, you can toggle between your work and personal accounts. As you head out the office in the evening, you can leave your work lists behind, and open up your grocery list or see what’s in store for movie night on your personal account.
With To Do, Microsoft’s on a mission to bring everything you need to do—from anywhere tasks appear in your favorite Microsoft 365 apps and services—into one centralized view. Flag messages you need to follow up on and see them in the Flagged Email list (with Microsoft work or school accounts or Microsoft-hosted email accounts like Outlook, Hotmail, or Live). The Assigned to Me list shows you the tasks assigned to you in your shared lists and those from Microsoft Planner. From there you can add them to My Day to give you a holistic view of what you need to do today. But that’s not all—with our Cortana integration, you can also add tasks from your Amazon Echo.* Love Microsoft Launcher on Android? Guess what! To Do is integrated there too.
Microsoft’s made your data security a priority in To Do. Microsoft’s comprehensive approach to security helps protect your data wherever it may be. With To Do, you can set up Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to help make sure your lists are secured.
Now’s the best time to dive in and give To Do a try. We believe that once you do, you’ll love it! To help the process, Microsoft made moving your lists and tasks as easy as possible. It’s a snap to import your lists into To Do, so go ahead and download To Do to get started.
If you don’t already have a Microsoft account, you can register with your existing email address (for example, Gmail). As soon as you sign in, the option to import your tasks from Wunderlist is displayed, or you can find it in Settings. Just start importing and you’ll be ready to get started with To Do.
