Microsoft To-Do now has a rich entry bar for Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring. This feature allows you to add details as you make an entry rather than having to create the entry and then add details later. You can add due dates and reminders as you create the reminder. Microsoft tweeted out a video showcasing the new feature.

This addition speeds up creating tasks and fixes the cluttered process that currently involves saving a task and then opening it again to add a due date and reminder.

  • That is so much better. Looking forward to it!
  • Just like the new Reminders app for iOS, which is great.
  • This feature is good....AND bad. The feature can also add more clutter. i have many lists in To-do, which is fine. Not all my lists need rich entry footer smallprint information. It's frankly dysfunctional and distracting. It would be clutterd with footer small print and frankly unnecessary information overload for serveral lists. There is a merrit to having "clean" non richt entry lists. I don't think this feature would make it more declutterd with this feature. I think it should be supported as an option on a per list basis or at least have an option to hide the rich entry bar on a per list basis.
