Microsoft ToDo Integration
Preferably on the sidebar similar to how it's handled on the web.
We are working on integrating tasks/to-do into My Day, just like in Outlook for Web.
I have a Microsoft 365 Personal/Home account and I have just switched to the New Outlook (I am running the latest version of Office).
Following making the switch, I find that when I click on the Microsoft To Do bottom on the bottom left, Outlook opens a new tab in Safari and I am asked to sign in. I enter my e-mail address and I am told "You can't sign in here with a personal account".
This means that I am now unable to manage my Tasks from within Outlook! I now have to use To Do to perform all of my Task management activities.
This is utter madness. Microsoft has taken away my access to a component of Outlook that I actively use! This is completely unacceptable!
Please add this functional back to Outlook users with Personal Accounts!
I am urgently waiting for a useful integration of To-Do, with a reminder function integrated in my daily planning and with the possibility to easily generate tasks from mails.

What's happened in the new outlook? To do used to work via the old Tasks but now tasks have disappeared and To Do is not integrated yet.

This should be linked to the account, for example, if I have two Microsoft 365 accounts and I configured both on Microsoft Outlook then it shold automatically understand where is the ToDo for each of them without me having to sign in or sign out every time.
So basically, ToDo should be like a builtin folder within Microsoft Outlook for the account I have configured.
Either integrate or add multiple accounts to the TODO App. On clicking the TODO in Outlook, open App, not web (web only if App does not exist).
Hi, this has been planned for a year...it would be great if this could be sorted.

Hopefully, this means that we can view tasks/list in the sidebar as indicated, but also that opening an email reference in ToDo opens the Outlook desktop app not the web app, and vice versa.

The easiest and good enough integration will be implement it similar to iOS:
1) "Open in Outlook" command in To Do app opens message in Outlook app if it's installed.
2) "Create task" command in Outlook app will allow you create task and give it custom name rather then e-mail subject.
Actually, just #1 would be good step forward as just flagging e-mail would create task automagically.
Then you can think about embedded To Do Outlook integration.

Great to hear this is planned - I create ToDo tasks from emails all the time.
This needs to come out ASAP. It's almost useless again without it. I'm constantly using the Create Task option for email. Especially because I can't snooze anything that's sorted into folders! Please prioritize this!

integrate Outlook with the desktop To Do app on the Mac. Right now adding a to do item opens up the browser even though I have To Do app.
I would like to see "Planned" as an option on the ToDo integration. My Day and Flagged are options in Outlook online, but having Planned would be important for me.

It would be nice to see more robust features like subtasks in this menu if it is implemented in the same way as the web app.
Please include tasks assigned to you as well. We use MS Planner and most of my tasks arrive in To Do from there but do not appear in the my day sidebar on the web… makes it hard to plan my day…
I'm really liking the My Day toolbar, similar to to the To Do bar in the PC version. (This is in the try the new Outlook option, I see).

Also need to work with the To-Do team to have To-Do open a flagged message in the Outlook app instead of OWA if both apps are installed. Or at least a customizable option to do this.
The LEFT sidebar should be able to be opened/closed via a hamburger menu.. right now you can only close by dragging the panel closed all the way, but can open with click... this is wonky and inconsistent.. kinda annoying that something you might do a lot is so difficult.. one click to open/close is MUCH solution.

Just a comment, in the web implementation of Outlook it is impossible to see the MyDay tab or to add things to it! It would be great if that was implemented here.
Can emails appear with flags in To Do ?
I believe this feature exists on Windows.
