Scheduled Todo list
Today we put a todo comment and it appears in the todo task list. Many times that "todo" comments is optional and many times it become mandatory after a given date.
The suggestion is to put a date with todo comment. e.g.
//todo: 28/March/2013 : Replace this hard coded value by the value that we pull from database.
When a compilation triggered in IDE(Visual Studio), all such todo comments whose date has expired should be shown as error. To fix it either user can
1> postpone the date or
2> remove the comment or
3> mark the todo as complete. e.g. //todo: 28/March/2013 : Complete:
Replace this hard coded value by the value that we pull from database.
Thanks for taking the time to share this suggestion. This item has been around for a couple of versions of Visual Studio and we haven’t acted on it. Looking at the VS “15” plans, we’re not going to take action on this item, so we’re going to close it. If the suggestion is still relevant, please either take a look to see if there’s another suggestion that’s similar that you can vote on, or open a new suggestion.

If flagging it as an error at compilation is too much, then atleast it will start showing it in ascending order of date in the todo list
