What do you like best?
I've tried other options: Asana, Wrike, Teamwork. The latter was my favorite of these tools. However, To-Do, while remaining significantly less powerful than all these competitors, offers two advantages that brought me over: My Day and integration with Office 365 and Planner.
- My Day was the answer to my frustration with other systems in which I could see tasks by due date, but had no easy way to prioritize work. My Day is the single genius feature of this app.
- In To-Do, I can see tasks assigned to me in Planner. We use Planner internally in the org because we already use Office 365 and it's not as hard to get buy-in for a system that's baked into our existing infrastructure. Getting everyone onto Teamwork, for instance, would be a challenge.
What do you dislike?
So it is limited. Sometimes, navigating and adding new tasks requires too many clicks. MSoft is working on this and it has improved. And I am really looking forward to the deeper integration with Teams and Outlook that (I think) has been promised.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Multi-account switching is available but it isn't possible to see tasks from multiple accounts in the same view. So just keep your personal tasks in a separate list in your business account.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It's a task app! Like all task managers, it doesn't actually do my work. However, it gives me visibility of personal projects as well as team work. And it's baked into Office 365 and Microsoft, so it doesn't seem like a separate system.
