Additionally, a task can be assigned “Steps” or discrete sub-tasks. Each step can be marked as complete individually.

Tasks can also have reminders and due dates set, each can use predetermined dates or have custom dates and times entered.

A key feature to To Do is its ability to share data across Microsoft products – for example, Tasks can be created, viewed, and modified in their own Tasks tab in Microsoft Outlook.
