Are there any places to develop the searching capabilities in MS To-Do?

Currently it just seems to search for anything in the subject line. It would be very useful to be able to search across all tasks no matter which list they were in for tasks created/completed on specific dates. 

It'd also be good to have some advanced searching so you can find all tasks created within a specific month that contained specific words in the title.

 

I appreciate this can possibly be done in tasks within Outlook but would be more useful and simpler if possible within To-Do.

 

Thanks.

When I try to search an item, which is marked as "done", I can never find it. Even if I choose "show deleted" tasks.

I only get steps, which are marked as "done".
