How to Import Lists and to-do items from Wunderlist and Todoist to Microsoft To-Do

Microsoft had acquired Wunderlist some time back and it was one of the popular task management and to do list organizing service. Few days back Wunderlist announced the new service in partnership with Microsoft called the Microsoft To-Do and the existing Wunderlist would cease to exist after some time. To-Do is a task management app that makes it easy to plan and manage your day.

Microsoft To-Do is available for Windows PCs, Android, iPhone and web interface. Now, if you have been using Wunderlist for a long time, moving to a new service will obviously have some issues and to make things easier for you Microsoft has created a new service to import lists and to-do items from Wunderlist and Todoist (another popular task management service) to Microsoft To-Do.
