Microsoft To Do doesn’t get the attention it deserves. Microsoft has eggs in many different productivity baskets (Project, Planner, To Do, Outlook Tasks, OneNote To-Do Tags, maybe more?). To Do excels thanks to its straightforward interface with just enough features to get the job done. Now, if you’re using To Do in MS Teams, you’re missing out on one of the best features, and I hope it gets added to Teams soon! Just a quick note, if you do use To Do in Teams, you can also use the To Do desktop app, and everything will stay synced up nicely.
The “My Day” feature in To Do is excellent. You can pick and choose tasks from any list, right click (or click), and select “Add to My Day”:
All of these tasks are brought onto a single page, “My Day” (and yes, you can pick your own theme):
This makes planning your day as easy as selecting the tasks and adding them to the “My Day” page. I use this personally and it really does make work days easy to plan. Highly recommend!
