The next step in our Outlook and Office 365 integrations will arrive in version 1.52 with flagged email as tasks. Customers signing in to the To-Do web or Windows app with a work or school will have the option to Show list and enable flagged email as tasks in their account.
Once the Flagged Email list is enabled, it will be populated with up to 10 flagged emails from the last 2 weeks. All emails flagged from that point forward will also flow into To-Do as tasks. In To-Do those emails will be fully editable tasks, which can be renamed, assigned due dates and reminders, added to My Day and marked as Important. To open the original email, just select the option to Open in Outlook from the detail view.
With our next update, Microsoft To-Do will support file attachments. You can now include more context by adding an image, document or other file to your task. Microsoft To-Do supports all file types, though file uploads are limited to 25 MB per task. Files that were added in Outlook Tasks will also be fully accessible in Microsoft To-Do.
At the moment, files are only supported within personal lists. We will bring file support to tasks within shared lists with a future update. While all file types are accessible on Android, only photos are able to be uploaded from our Android app at this time.
In version 1.39 Microsoft To-Do will get a new look on web. With our simple new design you can focus on staying organized. We’ve made it easier to visually organize your lists by color and keep track of your tasks at a glance with our updated icons.
Customers using Microsoft To-Do in tandem with other M365 web apps will also appreciate a more unified design experience across the apps.
Now that we’ve released Steps, we’re excited to share our own next step with you: List Sharing in Microsoft To-Do. We’ve designed sharing in Microsoft To-Do to be flexible and lightweight, so the app can work the way you do. With our share link, we make it easy to coordinate and collaborate in small teams and one-on-one. Just generate the link and share with your team, family and friends via email, SMS or app of your choice. Once you’ve accomplished your project together, you’re free to stop sharing and turn off the share link, remaining in control of your list.
This update will begin rolling out to Microsoft To-Do for iOS, Android, Windows 10 and the web in early June. We anticipate most To-Do users having this update in their apps by mid-June.
With the release of Microsoft To-Do version 1.28 we're happy to introduce Steps. Similar to the idea of subtasks, Steps allow any to-do to be broken down in to smaller, more actionable pieces.
To help customers be even more productive, each to-do will display just how many steps it contains and how many of those steps have been completed so far. Steps will also maintain their completion state even as the to-do they belong to is marked as completed or incomplete.
This update will begin rolling out to Microsoft To-Do for iOS, Android, Windows 10 and the web beginning on April 5th. We anticipate most To-Do users having this update in their apps by mid-April.
