Microsoft To-Do UWP gets 'Important' stars

Published by at

Last featured here on AAWP, here's another of the regular (every fortnight) updates for Microsoft To-Do, the cross-platform, cross-device task and project manager that's becoming more and more useful as time goes on. In this update, which went live an hour ago in the Store, to-do items can be marked as 'Important', with a star, and then highlighted in their own view from the hamburger menu.

The official changelog is:

  • Important activities – With this update you can mark an activity as “important” by clicking on the star to the right of the activity. All activities marked as “important” are grouped in the new Important section.
  • Bug fixes and various improvements.

Here's the new version, v1.34.11781 (up from v1.34.1806) in action:


To-dos can be 'starred' from all relevant views and (right) referenced in the main hamburger menu...


...and then shown in their own 'Important' view; (right) of course, the star status is also shown in the details view for a to-do. It's all consistent and useful.

You can grab Microsoft To-Do here in the Store, if you haven't already. As mentioned before, this is shaping up to be a pretty powerful tool/service, syncing on multiple devices and platforms, and I'll be diving into more depth with it in due course.
