  1. Tasks have all disappeared from the task widget

    Updated to the beta of 5.1, and my task list is now empty. As I only started using the list in 5.0, I don't know where it was saving the tasks to, so I don't know where to look to see if they have been deleted or are just no longer picked up by the widget.

    • Widgets disappear from home screen

      Widgets dissappear after random events (lick/unlock; going home from an app; going to settings...).
      I need to add the same widget once, than remove it, than add it once again and all the widgets reappear. This was an issue in the past. I reported it. It got fixed. Now it's happening again. It doesn't matter if I lock the home screen or not.

      • Launcher tasks not syncing with Microsoft To-Do

        Basically as title.

        When I press the refresh button it does nothing. I have 5 tasks on my account but only four show up in the launcher feed, and when I expand the launchers view. Works fine in the To Do app.

                            In the customize feed menu, I removed the Microsoft rewards widget. But it keeps coming back after some time.

                            • Cannot add separate widgets for work profile or normal profile, only the last installed adds

                              I have work profile enabled and in the widgets section, it only shows one version of the app. When I add the widget, it seems to only add the last installed version.

                              For example, I have both work Outlook and normal Outlook. I installed the work profile Outlook last and only that widget can be added. I then reinstalled the normal outlook and now I can only add that as a widget (no more work one)

                                • Sticky notes and Microsoft rewards widgets added to glance pane after every update

                                  After every update the Microsoft rewards and the sticky notes widgets are added to the glance pane and I have to manually remove them. I have the sticky notes pinned to a full home screen window already so do not want a duplicate in the glance pane. Microsoft rewards is not available in my region. Having to remove these widgets each time is annoying and should not happen between updates

                                      Hue widgets look odd when using the toggle switches. Don't line up with normal icons.

                                        • Cartão do Wunderlist não atualiza após algum tempo.

                                          Ao fixar o cartão do Wunderlist na tela inicial, as tarefas são exibidas normalmente, porém o cartão para de funcionar após algum tempo. Não é possível adicionar novas tarefas, mudar de lista ou marcar existentes.
