Microsoft To-Do adds New Features Steps and List Sharing

It’s now been over a year since Microsoft has released To-Do, it’s intelligent task management app which was developed by the team behind wunderlist.  With it being integrated with Office 365, the team has been collecting a multitude of feedback from users and have now released them in a couple of updates throughout this year.

One of these updates would be Steps which allows you to create sub-tasks to your main tasks to help break it down to smaller actionable items to help you focus on finishing the said task.  The number of steps will be displayed on the task to help productivity so that you know how far you are in that specific task.


Another update which was just recently announced was the feature of List Sharing.  List Sharing allows you to share your To-Do list with others so that collaboration will be easier as others may see your progress on your tasks or update it as tasks or Steps are accomplished.  This can be done through sharing a link to the ones you want to share your list with and once you are finished collaborating with whomever you are working with while still retaining the option to stop sharing it.  Microsoft says that this update will be available for most Office 365 users by mid June.

Microsoft To-Do now available in Preview!

Microsoft introduces a new intelligent task management app (available in Preview) named Microsoft To-Do to help plan and manage your day-to-day activities.  Coming from the team behind the Wunderlist app, To-Do delivers a smarter and more personal and intuitive way to keep you organized while helping you get the most out of each day!  Powered by Office 365 integration and its intelligent algorithm, it is Microsoft’s first step into helping its customers simplify their task management to help them achieve more.

All your to-dos in one place

With To-Do, you can create lists for anything, be it for work, home projects or just your own groceries!  Be able to track deadlines by adding reminders, due dates and notes while being able to personalize each list with different themes.  Accessibility will not be a problem as the To-Do app is available for the iPhone, Android phone, Windows 10 devices and even on the web!

Plan your day with Intelligent Suggestions

Admittedly, there are times that managing your to-do list can take as much effort as completing them. To-Do helps you focus and plan your day by starting with a clean state when you first open your app, allowing you to be more intentional on what you want to get done.  Another feature, Intelligent Suggestion, can help you get an idea on which tasks should be prioritized by showing you your to-dos the day before, showing you your task dues or upcoming tasks and other helpful suggestions based on the smart algorithm.

Integration with Microsoft Office

With To-Do being built on Office 365, it will, in the coming months, enable the product to become even more useful to its users.  One integration is with Outlook, which will allow users to sync their Tasks with To-Do to allow them to stay on top of their Outlook Tasks from anywhere, managed across devices.  As the only task management app built on enterprise cloud, To-Do offers advanced security that Office 365 customers expect.
