Microsoft just launched a new product called Microsoft To-Do. It’s been in public preview now and we’ve had a first look at it. As soon as you start the app, it immediately remembers Wunderlist.
Microsoft acquired Wunderlist back a while ago (a Berlin startup company). Their primary focus was to develop a solution to easily manage tasks allowing them to share and sync them. A simple and clean interface allowing everyone to use it for free including additional paid features.
After evaluating To-Do it looks like clone of Wunderlist. And this isn’t a surprise because Microsoft plans, there’s more to officially says that To-Do was developed by the original Wunderlist team. Taking the next steps, as soon as all functionality will be available in To-Do, Wunderlist will be deprecated. So we can expect that no new releases will be made to Wunderlist and To-Do is the official successor (also see Microsoft’s blog post https://blogs.office.com/2017/04/19/introducing-microsoft-to-do-now-available-in-preview/).
- My Day (pick tasks for your current day – it will be empty each new day)
- Suggestions (to create a “My Day” tasks, they’re using an algorithm to suggest tasks to add like from previous day, overdue or “Suggested to you”)
- Import Wizard from Wunderlist 🙂
What’s missing (currently – Microsoft is working on it)
•Integration into Office 365 like being able to login with your work account (currently only Live ID)
•Integration into Office (like Outlook or OneNote)
