Keeping things organized is key to master tasks at work and at home. In digital life you can choose between a plethora of apps and services that want to support you at staying organized. I’ve iterated through a few of these as well—especially after the shutdown of Google Inbox and my Trello “ToDo” board becoming not manageable anymore. Soon I have found myself very comfortable with Microsoft To-Do 1, a lightweight task management solution that focuses on getting stuff done today. You basically fill an one day micro-iteration from one ore more of your backlogs (=lists).
As I prefer keeping my communication and task management hub separate from the webbrowser I use Ferdi for these kind of webservices. Microsoft To-Do, however, was missing in the list of supported services. Fortunately Franz has a neat mechanism to add further services, called recipes. So I’ve spent the hour to create a recipe for Microsoft To-Do. Besides adding the service to Franz, it displays the count of today’s open tasks as badge in the sidebar and contains subtle CSS optimizations to make it look more integrated.
- Download the recipe
- Extract the contents to a new subfolder called e.g.
devdirectory (may ot yet exist) of your Franz configuration files:
- Restart Franz
Microsoft To-Do is the successor of Wunderlist after its Microsoft acquisition ↩
