Microsoft To-Do Coming to Outlook.com

Microsoft today announced a massive update for Microsoft To-Do at its New York event today. The company is integrating To-Do right into Outlook.com, allowing users to easily add and manage their to-do lists without needing to get out of Outlook.com.

To-Do works much like how Google’s add-ons work on the new Gmail — it’s essentially a sidebar which opens up when you click on To-Do logo. Once opened, you can see your existing to-dos, or drag an email from Outlook to your list to remind yourself about a task from an email, for example. The same goes for Outlook.com Calendar — you can drag a task from To-Do to your calendar and add as an event to Outlook Calendar.

The integration seems really useful, and if you use both To-Do and Outlook.com, it’s going to be quite handy.

    <p>I love this. But, we still need Calendar to come out of beta. We still can't even add notes to events in the beta.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#337680">In reply to jprestig:</a></em></blockquote><p>Want to bet they bring it out of beta without the ability to add notes?</p><p>I have been waiting for them to add the ability to drag an email to the Calendar to schedule an event or meeting, like one has been able to do in Outlook for ages. Sounds like it requires a detour through To Do.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#337680">In reply to jprestig:</a></em></blockquote><p>This. I really like the web version of Office, but the calendar is cripplingly bad.</p>

    <p>If this brings us one step closer to a unified list and task solution for the Office ecosystem, I'm all for it.</p>

    <p>I rarely use Outlook.com for email, I use either Outlook 365 desktop client or Outlook mobile. How will To-Do be integrated there?</p><p>If I enter a To-Do on Outlook.com, where will it show up on the Outlook clients?</p>
