Microsoft To-Do on the web gets a new look and a new "Planned" section

Earlier today, we reported on a number of new features and improvements making their way to the mobile apps for Microsoft To-Do, including faster sync speeds and an "undo" button for deleting items. It seems there's more news for Microsoft's Wunderlist replacement today, as the web app has also received some attention.

In addition to a new look - which should make it easier to organize your lists by color - you'll also notice the addition of a new 'Planned" section on the sidebar. This is somewhat similar to the My Day feature in that it shows you tasks from different lists, but rather than focusing on a single day, it lists the tasks for the next five days and "even later".

Microsoft calls this a smart list, which presumably means there is some sort of algorithm determining which tasks should be shown over others. This could also be the reason it didn't specify just how far ahead it will look for tasks, as the service might use its smarts to determine how relevant a task is even if it's not due in the next five days. If you don't see much usefulness in it, you can always remove the section from the menu by heading to the settings at the top right corner of the app.

The 'Planned' tab is making its debut on the web version of To-Do, and it isn't currently available on any other platform. With that being said, it's likely that it will make its way to all users over the next few weeks.
