Microsoft's To Do Smart due date and reminder recocnicion was anounced over a year ago.
I did try from time to time but it did not work until this week when i tried again. Don't know when exactly this became active in my Tenant but it's good that it works now.
Smart due date and reminder recognition in Microsoft To Do
How it works:
- use expressions like "tomorrow"
- use a day and a date "Friday 11am", Friday noon"
- use exprecions like "daily", "every Monday", "daily 4pm"
I tested it with
"Submit Report until Friday 10am"
The reminder was correctly set
