Updated 19 June 2019: The Mac app is now available.
Last month we concentrated on bringing your tasks from Planner to email to get us closer to our mission of showing all your tasks in one easy-to-access place. But it wasn’t all about integrations - read on to see what else we launched in May.
See your Planner tasks in To-Do
This was our most popular update this month, and rightly so. Bringing together both your tasks and the Planner tasks that are assigned to you gives you one holistic view of everything you need to do today. If you haven’t tried it out yet, read more about this great feature here.
I'm loving the integration between @MicrosoftToDo and #MicrosoftPlanner. Now my tasks app automatically show the ones Ive been assigned by others through Planner. Awesome @Office365 integration #productivity @AlisonForster8 @brianvanv @CatholicEdCns— Campbell Smythe (@cdsmythe) May 14, 2019
Check off your email tasks
Talking of having one view for all your tasks, this month we also brought our Flagged email list to your personal Microsoft-hosted accounts (Hotmail, Outlook, and Live.com). You can flag your email and it will now show up in your Flagged email list in To-Do. You can add it to My Day so you’ll always remember to reply to it. If you haven’t set it up yet, read our blog to find out more.
This is actually pretty cool. I'm using it for my work account. Personal email domain but it's hosted by outlook and it works a treat. Thanks!— ΞΓΙC ΡΔSΔΓIΠ (@pasarin) May 9, 2019
Add attachments to shared lists
Does your shopping partner never buy the right stuff from the grocery store? You can now add file attachments or photos to shared lists to let them know exactly which type of pasta or brand of laundry detergent you’d like.
My wife will love that feature when sending me to the store for something!!! I will no longer need to purchase 3 variants of the same item to make sure I get the right one!!— Dr. Patrick J. Jones (@PJJ21) April 25, 2019
See your lists in landscape view on Android
While the last three were big updates, we also like to focus on the little details that make the experience better for you. This month we brought landscape view to Android, so if you want to see more detail on the go you can just flip your phone sideways.
Looking forward to the Mac app
We want to take a moment in this lookback to look forward. Many of you have been requesting a Mac app, and you’ll be very pleased to hear that it’s just around the corner. EDIT: It's now available, head here to download it.
Holy Cannoli, To-Do for Mac! I actually got to use it for a while, and it's every bit as amazing as I've expected. Feels good to talk about it now :) https://t.co/bbGJS8jEbR— Daniel Sada :baby_chick: (@danielsadac) June 10, 2019
