Office 365 - Microsoft To-Do
Microsoft To-Do helps you manage, prioritize, and complete the most important things you need to achieve every day, powered by Intelligent Suggestions and Office 365 integration.
Alternatively, you can install the To-Do desktop application for Windows 10.
All the to-dos entered in My Day will also be saved in your To-Do list. If you aren't able to complete all of your to-dos in My Day, no worries! We'll keep track of them in your To-Do list and suggest them to you tomorrow. We'll also keep a close eye on your to-dos with upcoming due dates and include them in Suggestions.
Create lists for anything you want: work, school, grocery, movies, or household to-dos. You can even personalize your lists with different themes and colors to help you quickly identify them.

To-Do's intelligent Suggestions make it easy to prioritize your daily tasks. Suggestions look at your to-dos across your lists and, based on a smart algorithm, recommend the most important ones for you each day.
How can I create a to-do?
You can create a to-do from the +Add a to-do input field in any of your lists. Just select the field, type the to-do's title and then press Return or Enter on your keyboard. Your new to-do will then be added to the bottom of your list.
How can I restore a deleted to-do?
Since your to-dos are stored in O365 and are also visible in Outlook Tasks, you can recover accidentally deleted to-dos in Outlook 2016:
1. Log in to Outlook with the same account that you use with Microsoft To-Do.
2. Navigate to your email folder list, and then click Deleted Items.
3. Locate the deleted to-do, right-click it, and then click Move > Other Folder > Tasks.
Your to-do should automatically re-appear in its correct list.
How can I sync my account?
To sync your to-dos and lists between computer and phone, just log in with the same account on each device. Microsoft To-Do updates every 5 seconds, so all of your changes should be displayed automatically. If you notice that your app isn't updating, just head to your account settings and tap Sync. Since your to-dos are stored in Office 365, they will also sync automatically to your Outlook Tasks.
