Microsoft To-Do UWP now integrated with Outlook Calendar (for most people)

Published by at

Back in April, I revealed Microsoft To-Do UWP, its new cross-device, cross-platform to-do manager, with Wunderlist and Todoist import. But it was standalone in terms of being separate from Microsoft Outlook Calendar... at the time. Over the last five months it has been integrated into the '...' menu for Outlook, being rolled out for various Insider rings and - now - production phones.

Curiously, this is on all my Lumias/Windows 10 Mobile phones apart from one - and it's not clear whether this one needs refreshing or if it's something server side as part of the rollout of this feature. Data points welcome!

Anyway, the screens here are from my Fast ring Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro and my production Lumia 950, both of which see the Microsoft To-Do integration:


To-Do is now on the '...' menu in Outlook Calendar - at least for most people, regardless of Insider ring status; (right) Microsoft To-Do in action, though note that there's no equivalent shortcut back to Outlook Calendar...

Pretty handy and I can recommend To-Do for general use - on the web it appears as 'Outlook Tasks' in - but every record is fully synced and kept up to date.

PS. If you don't already have Microsoft To-Do installed on your phone, then tapping the Outlook menu item sends you off to the Store to the right install page - neat!

PPS. If, like my 950 XL, your phone doesn't see this menu item, let me know your Insider status, etc. - there has to be some common factor as to why specific phones are missing out..
