From Lazarus wiki

Deutsch (de) English (en) suomi (fi) français (fr)

The ToDo list shows the list of ToDo comments in all project units.

Until Lazarus 1.6 it only searched the units listed in the project inspector. Since 1.7 it searches all used units (i.e. lpr uses section) too.

Make comments in source-code like these:

{TODO -oOwnerName -cCategoryName: Todo_text}
{DONE -oOwnerName -cCategoryName: Todo_text}
{#todo -oOwnerName -cCategoryName: Todo_text}
{#done -oOwnerName -cCategoryName: Todo_text}
{ ToDo: Todo_text}
// ToDo: Todo_text
(* ToDo: Todo_text *)

The -o and -c tags are optional.
