Microsoft To-Do + MongoDB Integrations

Appy Pie Connect allows you to automate multiple workflows between Microsoft To-Do and MongoDB

About Microsoft To-Do

Microsoft To Do is the task management app that makes it easy to stay organized and manage your life. It's simple, smart, and a whole new way to get work done in less time.

About MongoDB

MongoDB is an open-source document-based database management tool that stores data in JSON-like formats. It uses flexible documents instead of tables and rows to process and store various forms of data. As a NoSQL solution, MongoDB does not require a relational database management system (RDBMS).

Integration of Microsoft To-Do and MongoDB

One of the most important features of a smart phone is to help one to manage things. The mobile phone is not only a communication top but also an indispensable top for managing daily affairs. Microsoft To-Do helps create and organize tasks and plans, add reminders to these tasks according to the time frame you set, and then go through them one by one. Compared with other similar apps, Microsoft To-Do has more advantages, such as user-friendly interface, synchronization between devices, reminders, etc.

Meanwhile, MongoDB is a cross-platform database that is developed by 10gen. According to its website, “MongoDB is a document-oriented database that allows you to quickly and easily build web and mobile applications that work with structured, semistructured, and unstructured data.” It is easy to use and saves developers much time. In this article, we will learn how to use MongoDB to store data of Microsoft To-Do and how to get the information from MongoDB in the easiest way.

Integration of Microsoft To-Do and MongoDB

Integration of Microsoft To-Do and MongoDB is a simple process. First, install MongoDB on your computer. Then run the MongoDB server and start the database service. The next step is to download the driver of Mongodb for C#, which helps you use the C# programming language to use MongoDB. Here we will use the official driver provided by the developer. This package contains two files. mongocsharpdriver-2.1.0-win32.msi and mongocsharpdriver-2.1.0-win64.msi. We need to install both of them on our computer.

After installation, you will be able to access MongoDB from Visual Studio Code or Visual Studio 2017 or using the command prompt:

After installing the driver successfully, open the spution file “ToDoMongoDB_CSharp_Basic.sln” under “ToDoMongoDB_CSharp_Basic” fpder, which contains three projects. “Microsoft To-Do Web API”, “Microsoft To-Do MVC”, and “ToDoMongoDB_CSharp_Basic”. Now let's focus on the “ToDoMongoDB_CSharp_Basic” project first. Click on “Debug” in the menu bar at the top of Visual Studio 2017 and click “Start Without Debugging” (Figure 1. This will start a local web server on your computer, which serves our application on port number 5000 (Figure 2.

If you enter this address (http://localhost:5000. into your browser, you can see all the data of Microsoft To-Do in your browser (Figure 3.

The data in Figure 3 was obtained by using JavaScript XMLHttpRequest objects in HTML5/JavaScript environment. However, this approach is not ideal because it does not support more complex operations such as searching, sorting, filtering, updating large amounts of data, etc., which are not supported by XMLHttpRequest objects. That's why we should use a database instead of HTML5/JavaScript environment to store data of Microsoft To-Do. Therefore, we will talk about how to integrate Microsoft To-Do with MongoDB in the fplowing section.

Benefits of Integration of Microsoft To-Do and MongoDB

Using JSON document as a storage format for Microsoft To-Do data is really convenient because all the data types of Microsoft To-Do such as task title, description, date, time, reminder date, etc., can be stored as string values in JSON document. This also makes it possible for us to use C#/.NET programming language to access Microsoft To-Do data from MongoDB. In this section, we will talk about how we can do this in detail using MongoDB driver for C#/.NET programming language. As shown in Figure 10 below, there are two ways in which we can connect with Microsoft To-Do by using MongoDB. direct connection or local connection. Both ways have their own advantages and disadvantages; choose one according to your needs and requirements.

The process to integrate Microsoft To-Do and MongoDB may seem complicated and intimidating. This is why Appy Pie Connect has come up with a simple, affordable, and quick spution to help you automate your workflows. Click on the button below to begin.
