Microsoft Lists

Microsoft, for the first time, revealed Lists and plans to integrate the app with Microsoft 365 at its Build 2020 event for software developers. Today, the company announced the general availability of the application.

Plus, very soon, you’ll be able to use Microsoft Lists in Teams, which is today one of the most sought after collaborative platforms in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Microsoft Lists now rolling out to Microsoft 365

Microsoft Lists is an ideal replacement for unnecessary paperwork that usually comes with the manual creation of lists. Also, with the app, you no longer have to use complicated spreadsheets to record your items.

The application offers you the ability to not only track thousands of items, but also collaborate on lists with your colleagues. Apart from that, you can add pretty much anything on a typical smart list, from inventory and assets to issues and routine tasks.

Microsoft explains:

 We built Lists to help you save time and reduce hassle. As simple to use as a spreadsheet, Lists helps you easily track any information, invite others to collaborate, and use rules to keep everyone in sync – in addition to being able to customize forms and flows with the Power Platform.

If you’re a Microsoft 365 subscriber, you may start using Lists with apps like SharePoint, Excel, and Power Automate.

Similarly, the app is coming to Teams next month, enabling you to quickly create lists by going to the Microsoft 365 Launcher. You can even get started much faster by selecting an appropriate template from the many ready-made options available.

SharePoint lists aren’t going away anytime soon, however. Instead, Microsoft is gradually integrating the feature with other Office 365 applications.
