I’ve heard Paul and Maryjo talk about how MS Todo has now reached “feature parity” with Wunderlist, and I’m not intending to parse Paul’s words at all. When he says it, it gives me hope that my most asked for feature has been added – the ability to add a task to Todo by sending an email – similar to being able to send a note to “[email protected]”, and it would parse the e-mail based on the address it was sent from. I know this can be done, as this functionality exists in Onenote in exactly the same way – register your e-mail address, and boom.
I know Paul doesn’t really use a task-minding program. I know my situation is unique – we use Outlook via Exchange on-prem, the store is locked so I can’t get the widget from the Outlook store, and my system is locked down and I can’t install the app. So, I’m limited at work to using Wunderlist as I can e-mail things to become tasks. Or, I can until May.
There is a significant thread about this on User Voice (https://todo.uservoice.com/forums/597175-feature-suggestions/suggestions/18980596-send-forward-emails-to-to-do), but it is not getting any attention. All the attention is a) on flagging, and b) on Outlook via 365 on the web. This is a simple feature that lest people with, say, a gmail account put a task quickly into their todos, not just someone with Outlook.
Help us Bradley Wan-Kenobi. You’re our only hope…
