Does it feel challenging to stay on top of important tasks? Is planning your day overwhelming? If so, read on to find how Microsoft To Do can help you focus on your urgent and important tasks.


Plan your day better with intelligent task suggestions.

A well-formed daily plan can do wonders to boost your productivity and help you end each day on a high note. The My Day list in To Do gives you a blank slate to plan your day. We’re committed to making your daily planning experience better and have introduced intelligent task suggestions in My Day on To Do’s web application so you can focus on tasks that matter to you. We use AI to identify tasks that seem important, suggesting them based on keywords. These suggestions also include tasks that have deadlines and tasks you starred star.png.




Try the feature now!

Head to To Do web application and select the My Day list. We’ve added a new section, Tasks that seem important, in the suggestions pane light bulb.pngIt can help you identify tasks to add to your My Day list so you can focus on getting things done. If a suggestion isn’t relevant to you, just select more options > This isn't relevant to me.


We’ll show up to seven tasks we identify as most relevant to you in this section. It’ll update as you add new tasks or edit existing ones. Your urgent tasks, like ones due today or tomorrow or the ones that are overdue, will show up here. All other tasks with due dates will continue to show up in the Later and Earlier sections of the suggestions pane.


The feature is currently available on the To Do web application and only for To Do in English.


Note: Tasks assigned to you in Microsoft Planner show up in To Do’s Assigned to you list, but these tasks currently aren’t suggested in the Tasks that seem important section.


We hope that AI-powered task suggestions help you stay focused on your key tasks. We’d love to hear your feedback. Let us know in the comments below or over on Twitter and Facebook. You can also write to us at
