Below we have mentioned all the new features available on To Do.

  •  Microsoft To-Do will help you see all your tasks in one view 

The tech giant Microsoft has finally added the option to see all your complete and incomplete tasks in one place on the system. The new smart list can be switched on from Microsoft To-Do’s Settings. It is to be noticed, that the app will classify the tasks into lists instead of showing all the tasks available which may become good and it could take a hit on productivity. Also, the completed tasks can be viewed at the bottom of this new update.

  • Microsoft To-Do has Badge notifications in iOS app

In the New updates, there is good news for the users who depend on the feature to keep a track of the pending notifications as To-Do is gaining support for it. Options are available for enabling app badges for incomplete tasks in your “My Day” and for tasks that are due and overdue. It can be turned off if you don’t want this feature.

  • Print lists

You can now very easily print the lists by just choosing the Print option accessible from the three-dots menu on the taskbar. You could also email lists as PDF formats.

  • Add tasks to the top

Users who want to add new tasks at top of the list, can now head to Settings and then choose if the new tasks you add will appear at the top of the list or it can be at the bottom. This is applicable to all the starred tasks as well.

You can give a try to the updated Microsoft if you’re planning to migrate from Wunderlist.
