Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft To Do (formerly Wunderlist)
I use Microsoft To-Do for keeping track of personal tasks. I don't use it within the context of a team or for any major project management features, I'm focused on using it for more individual day-to-day tasks.
- Creating lists of things that need to get done
- Creating lists of other items that you want to sort by category
- Giving you a prioritized list of what you should try to accomplish in your day
- Easily assigning tasks to others: [I feel] it's confusing that some lists are shared and others are not and you can't move items between them
- Auto-detect of dates or tags for quick list creation
- More personal accountability for completing assigned tasks
- More on-time delivery of key action items that are dependencies for other teams
- Todoist: To-Do List & Task Manager
The main alternative that I've used is Todoist. Todoist is better at auto-detecting dates and tags, and I found it easier to assign items to other people using Todoist. I think the big benefit that Microsoft To Do has is that it is more integrated into existing Microsoft workflows and apps that will be an important part of some people's routines.
