2019. Microsoft integrated its personal organizer app To-Do with Outlook


Microsoft has released a new version of its Microsoft To-Do personal organizer. It features full customization of color scheme and background, 2-factor authorization, smart recommendations for creating today's task list. Finally, the integration with Outlook is implemented: the Flagged Email list in the app displays flagged messages from Outlook.com. Also, it features integration with project management service Microsoft Planner, voice assistants Alexa and Cortana. At the end of the blog announcement, Microsoft hinted the closure of the Wunderlist service, which was acquired by the company 4 years ago and became the base on which To-Do was built. After that the Wunderlist founder Christian Reber asked Microsoft (via Twitter) to buy it back to make an open-source product.




2019. Microsoft brought its To-Do app to Mac



Microsoft is bringing its To-Do app to the Mac. It will support most of the core features right away, including the ability to create and manage tasks, work offline, share lists, utilize tags and more. It also will integrate with Microsoft Outlook to pull in your “Flagged” email list and will support integration with Planner soon, allowing you to see any items assigned to you. The Mac version also takes advantage of its new platform to offer a handful of keyboard shortcuts, like ⌘2 to minimize the app so it only displays the list view, and ⌘1 to return to viewing all your lists. You can click on a task’s text to edit it directly from the list view, as well.


2017. Microsoft unveiled productivity app To-Do that will replace Wunderlist


Microsoft acquired the popular mobile to-do list app Wunderlist back in 2015, and now it’s preparing users for its eventual demise with the release of its new application To-Do. The new app was built by the team behind Wunderlist, and will bring in the favorite elements of that app in the months ahead. The company also added that it won’t shut down Wunderlist until it’s confident that it has “incorporated the best of Wunderlist into To-Do.” In the meantime, Microsoft is encouraging Wunderlist users to make the switch by offering an importer that will bring in your lists and to-dos from Wunderlist into To-Do, where those items will now be available in other Microsoft products, like Exchange and Outlook. The To-Do app is not ready at this point to meet the needs of all Wunderlist users, however. As many users realized, some platforms do not yet support To-Do, including Mac, iPad and Android tablet. Task list sharing is also not available.
