Great news that categories in Outlook are now mirrored in To Do (at least in the browser version for now https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&searchterms=63231).

Now: is there a way I can see my tasks filtered by category in To Do?

@rainmountain Excellent question! I do not think there is a way to do this. And this makes the categories pretty useless at this point.

I appreciate this is a few months old but I had the same question. The closest I have got to this is to do the following:

- Go the Outlook Desktop App

- Go the My Tasks tab

- Select To Do List

- Change the settings to group by category

(Home Ribbon --> Current View-->Simple List --> Right Click --> View Settings --> Group By --> Categories)

It's a work around - a bit clunky as I can't find this on the browser version of Outlook or To Do

 

Thank you @NadiyaK. That's a good workaround to see the tasks sorted by category in Outlook. As To Do is my Task-Manager Application across platforms I would still like to see this within To Do. 
Just found this: some information on how to add categories in To Do (and on how this will affect Tasks created from flagged Emails): https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/add-steps-importance-notes-tags-and-categories-to-your-ta...
