Microsoft wants to help their users stay organised and get even more out their day – and with their newest app, they plan to do just that.
Microsoft To-Do is an intelligent task management app that’s currently available in Preview. Fully integrated with Microsoft Office 365, To-Do lets you create a list for anything, from work, to chores to groceries and more.
Features include the capability to add reminders, due dates, notes and personalisation. Thanks to cloud integration, you can access your To-Do lists from mobile platforms, through web browsers, and of course on your home computer.
Robust integration with Microsoft Office 365 currently allows users to automatically sync Tasks in Outlook with To-Do. Future updates with offer further features that come with integrating To-Do with other popular apps in Office 365 Suite.
Thanks to its foundation in the cloud, To-Do also comes with the enterprise-grade security you’ve come to expect from Microsoft products such as data encryption during the transit and at rest, and data storage in hyper-scale, globally networked data centres.
So be sure to give To-Do a try and see how it can change the way you tackle the day, both at home and at the office. It looks like Microsoft to do with be replacing the very popular app called Wunderlist.
Because Microsoft To-Do is currently in Preview this has to be enabled within your tenant. To do this logon as your admin in the tenant, Select Admin Settings, Select Services & Add-ins within the O365 admin settings then scroll down to the bottom where you will see the feature Microsoft To-Do, toggle the switch and wait an hour or so and the feature will then be enabled for your tenant. If this is not done then users will receive an error explaining this requirement during the login and will be logged out by the app.
