The Microsoft To-Do app has updated across Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, Android, and iOS devices this week with a variety of fixes and improvements.
On Windows 10 PCs and Windows 10 Mobile smartphones, the updated added the ability to exclude completed items from search results, improved navigation, and fixed a bug involving dragging of items. Here's the full release notes:
- Is it a to-do you’re looking for? With the option to exclude completed items from our search results, we’ve made it easier to find what you’re looking for.
- We’ve also made it easier to navigate out of the detail view. Just press ESC to close it and get back to your list.
- You may have had some trouble dragging your to-dos to the top of the list in My Day. Our apologies. From here on out we’ll let you organize your list as you see fit.
On Android smartphones and tablets, the Microsoft To-Do update added the Important smart list feature that had already been introduced on Windows 10 devices and also improved app performance. Here's the release notes for the Android app update:
- The Important smart list is now available on Android! Just open the Important list and you’ll be able to see all of your starred to-dos in one place.
- We’ve also made several improvements for better stability and optimised performance.
On iOS devices such as the iPhone and iPad, this week's update also added the Important smart list feature and, in addition to that, also reduced the number of actions needed to navigate the app and gave more power back to the user. Here's the notes:
- New: The Important smart list is now available on iPhone and iPad! Just open the Important list and you’ll be able to see all of your starred to-dos in one place.
- Improved: If you’re eager to get back to a specific list when opening Microsoft To-Do, you’ll be pleased to know that we’ve reduced the taps it takes to get you there. The app will now open back to the last list you were working through.
- Improved: You may have noticed that tapping the due date or reminder menus would also automatically select a due date or reminder for you. Apologies for micro-managing your to-dos. From here on out, we’ll leave setting your due dates and reminders entirely to you.
Microsoft To-Do has become a rather effective free task management app on all three app ecosystems over the past few months. Which device do you use it on? Let us know in the comments below and then follow us on Pinterest for more Microsoft app content.
