Purpose: Microsoft To Do is a to do list and task management app. It’s valuable in that it gives you one place to track all your responsibilities. An organized to do list keeps things manageable and you focused on what’s important. All that leads to greater peace of mind.
Benefits: If you are part of the Microsoft world and use Outlook, To Do integrates nicely with Outlook tasks. Microsoft To Do uses intelligent analysis to set up a ‘My Day’ list for you based on due dates or similar parameters. You can also create shared lists – such as a grocery list – with others who are using the To Do app. Like most apps these days, Microsoft To Do is cross-platform – working on both Android and iOS devices as well as on the web.
Cost: Free, also comes included as part of a Microsoft 365 subscription
Opinion: Microsoft To Do is a simple task management app. The interface is streamlined, and it is easy to move tasks between lists and add expiration dates. I do like that they have the My Day feature, which automatically adds tasks with today’s due date to the list. On the con side, Microsoft does not have a lot of the bells and whistles that you see with other, often paid, task management apps. However, it is a free app and is a good option for an uncomplicated to do list.
And don’t forget – the best to do app is the one that is handy and one that you actually use. Need help finding that special app or tweaking the to do app you’ve got? Let me know!
