Hi All,

Recently my desktop version of To Do has started showing a number in the task bar.

I've poured through my lists looking for what it might correlate to, but can't figure it out.

See attached image.

Thanks

I figured it out!

It's the number of items overdo.

Well isn't that totally useless.

I guess we need a Smart List of overdo so we can see them all in one place

@Mickey_F  There are also a couple of configuration choices for the app badge under General settings. The choices are:

  • Turned off
  • Added today and not completed (my favourite)
  • Due today an overdue (default)

+1 for the smart list though!
