Microsoft To-Do for iPhone, Android, Windows and the web is picking up some new functionality this week: The ability to collaborate and share lists, and to break down tasks into smaller steps or sub-tasks.
“Our goal for Microsoft To-Do is to provide a personal and intuitive way to help people stay organized and get the most out of every day,” Microsoft announced. “We’ve listened to your feedback and have added two of the most requested features.”
To-Do list sharing. Now, you can share your To-Do lists with family and colleagues so you can collaborate on getting things done. This works for both personal (Microsoft account) and work (via your organization) scenarios, Microsoft says.
Steps. A new Steps feature lets you break down any to-do into smaller sub-tasks. These sub-tasks can be reordered and then completed independently. And each task will now display the number of steps.
The latest update to Microsoft To-Do is rolling out “around the globe today and will be available to everyone this week,” Microsoft says, across iPhone, Android, Windows, and the web.
