An Overview Of Microsoft To-Do

Microsoft To-Do

Microsoft To-Do is a new tool that will replace Outlook tasks over the coming years. Currently, it is available and working, and integrates with tasks, but has not yet fully replaced it.

To-Do helps you manage, prioritize, and complete the most important things you need to achieve every day, powered by Office 365 integration.

Currently, it is available as a web app, as well as a desktop application which can be installed from the Microsoft Store, or a Mobile app that can be installed from the iOS App Store for an iOS device or Play Store for an Android device respectively.

To-Do allows the users to create lists to group their tasks with due days and reminders. A user can attach files or links to a task, and they can even put notes. These tasks can even be set to be recurring on various schedules, such as weekly, or weekdays only.

Below, we will explore a few features but there are many more that are available, and you can learn more about them here.

In this article, I have tried to cover the main features of Microsoft To-Do list.

Sharing Lists

In addition to your personal lists, you may share some lists with others just like you can share some files with colleagues. Inviting others to share lists will allow for additional collaboration and keeping projects up-to-date.

To share, right-click on the list and click "Share List" to create an invitation link. You can then send this link to anyone who you would like to access the list with you.
