To Do Integration
Similar to Planner's.
Adam Elrod commented
The Microsoft To Do app is much easier to use than planner or project when it comes to reviewing sinple activities. As a communications team, we work with a variety of tasks. Project is too big of a program when you need a fast task item from your Outlook or from your OneNote.
Integrating with To Do allows us to put both major projects and simple requests into one application to create a better workflow. Planner doesn't have enough features for our big projects, but does handle simple tasks and integrates with To Do. We want to use To Do since it integrates with Outlook and everything else except Project it seems.
I would like to be able to look as tasks in two ways; grouped by project so that a PM or other executive can keep track of how an entire project is functioning, and by assignee so that a user can see all the tasks they must complete. Planner works beautifully in this way, allowing you to see the entire project in planner; and users can see all of their pending tasks in To Do. However planner lacks some features (most notably predecessors) that are needed in managing more complex projects.
Without a way to connect P4W to ToDo, end users must manage multiple lists, in multiple places of all the tasks that are expected of them.
Zoho projects already have this functionality!
Any news on this? Surely it can't be that difficult
This is a 100% must-have, please!!!!
If you assign a task to a user in P4W and it doesn't flow up to their todo app then what the heck are we doing here???

This seems like an obvious candidate for the MP roadmap. Project just isn't where me and my team work, and the lack of integration w/ Planner and To-Do creates considerable manual time-consuming and monotonous work.

This could be accomplished when "Two way integration with Microsoft planner and Microsoft projects" (another similar feedback request) is done.
Without To-Do integration and a reasonable mobile app, team members cannot use mobile solutions to be on track.
This idea has been put out there since October 2019 and Thinking about it since January, is there any update on this as linking Project for the web and To Do would be great for my company as I'm trying to get users to use To Do, but if I can't link the two packages I might have to think again and try other software, would be a no brainer to me.
MS has the ability to take out all other players in the market if they have a project, todo and teams all in complete 2 way sync. Seems a complete no brainer, thinking about it since jan 15 is crazy!
Consolidating views of a person's outstanding tasks is critical.

This is very important. At the same time, it will be critical to improve the To-Do application so that you can do more than just simply status the activity as complete. In To-Do, you need a simple 25/50/100% slider or something and/or remaining effort to help a user indicate to a PM how much work has been done and is remaining. Of course, actual 2-way integration between Project and To-Do is important as well.
Martin Beyer commented
This is super important. Similar to planner I must have a view on my Project Tasks as part as To-Do.
Any updates since Jan 15?
This is critical as we are asking non-PM's to complete tasks right in the tool. As they work across 5-10 projects at a time, if there is no roll-up then Project will be a no-go. Integration into To-Do lists would be a good solution as well.

I'm a little confused about this.
This functionality should be working on or added to backlog or similar... Since it is already being displayed in commercials. Right?
Especially for people working on multiple projects at a given time this is a MUST HAVE!
Instead of making us check 10 different Project files, bundle all tasks assigned to a person in one view!
Miroslav Bečička commented
Can we integrate Project for the Web tasks with To-Do using Flow?
This should be base functionality. All tasks for a user in one place.

I don't understand, what is there to "think about" when it comes to this? Microsoft To Do should be a hub for any assigned tasks.
I'm not sure why this is not a thing already... Integration to Outlook tasks / To-Do would be a huge advantage over other project management solutions. The biggest pain point is that the tasks need to be created twice (once inside of the project management tool and once by the user itself). If the assigned tasks would show up in To-Do like tasks from Planner, it would be a big deal! The possibility to drag and drop tasks from To-Do in the Outlook on the Web calendar is immensely useful!
