Microsoft Flow could already be used to automate workflows with to-do list apps like Wunderlist and Todoist, but now you can count Microsoft's own task app among those ranks. Microsoft To-Do is now integrated with Flow, allowing you to set up connectors and automate tasks.
To get started, you just need to make sure you're logged into both Flow and To-Do with the same Microsoft account. From there, Microsoft says, you can select a connector or service from which you'd like to send a to-do. From Microsoft:
Microsoft Flow works much like If This Then That (IFTTT), allowing you to automate interactions between a large number of services based on specific triggers. As for Microsoft To-Do, the service hasn't received much in the way of new features since its debut in early 2017. However, Microsoft recently updated its UserVoice page to indicate a slew of new features are in the works.
Thanks, Terence, for the tip!

Isn't Wunderlist also Microsoft's own?
Yes, they do but supposedly they will retire wunderlist once todo app is up to par with wunderlist
That's how all software transitions should be done, not axing a perfectly good application and replacing it with a half hearted attempt at creating a application.
I just wished Flow would have more integration with the OS. Like if I could set volume based on my location out so.
All very nice, and I'm interesting in using it vs Wunderlist (which I like). But please add multiple users per list, and syncing, without that it's less useful than Wunderlist.
Multiple users doesn't work, as far as I'm aware. Syncing, however, has been fixed in the latest release on iOS, Android, Windows, and the web version at todo.microosft.com. I use this daily for my lists of random things to accomplish, and I LOVE IT! I also found out Cortana integration is coming within the next few weeks or so, which is huge for me. :)
