  1. Cannot change reminder sound

    When a reminder is set using Cortana via the Microsoft Launcher: there is no way to change the reminder sound. Launcher uses a sound being used for one of my alarms. My OS (Android O on Samsung Galaxy S7) does not have a setting for a default "Alarms notification sound", and Launcher is not using my "Notification" or "Text Message" sound. How can I change the sound Launcher plays when giving a reminder notification?

    • Tasks and emails out of sync

      My task reminder in the -1 screen has gone out of sync with Outlook. If I choose 'view commitment mail' it opens the wrong one. If I click 'completed', it tells me something went wrong. Please fix as this was a great feature.

            • Reminders pop up for both Cortana and Launcher

              If I have Cortana app installed and Launcher, reminders pop up at same time for both of them. On my one reminder should. Ex: I use Launcher to make reminder to feed the dog. At that time both Cortana and Launcher remind, so I get double alarms. It's annoying and I have to address both its redundant.

              • Reminders need more snooze options

                Snooze options for reminders too constraining. I want to set my own snooze time.

                          • in TO-DO in microsoft launcher on my android samsung note 3 cell phone. to select year in reminder i have to scroll all years one by one.

                            in TO-DO to set date for a reminder.. it shows DECEMBER 2100 so then to select 2018 it gives only option to scroll month by month. no any direct way to change only years.

                                  • To Do list is a let down

                                    'To Do' list on homepage (Android):
                                    a) One cannot move the points up or down.
                                    b) One cannot insert a sentence/quote in to do list as it takes info in just 'one line', before while making a point you can use multiple lines within the same point.
                                    c) no 'starred' option.

                                    i had already sent the same point, befor it was good... now To Do list is letdown.
