Assign tasks in Microsoft To-Do in just a couple of easy steps

Microsoft To-Do is a cloud-based task management application that allows users to manage their work on a desktop or even on the go.

It has an intuitive interface with lots of options that increase productivity and help users manage their tasks with ease.

Recently, Microsoft has improved Azure and Teams to offer a better experience to users who want to work together and share data. Microsoft To-Do was not left behind.

How can I assign tasks to list members in Microsoft To-Do?

Now, you can work together on tasks, as the tech giant added a task assignment feature in To-Do.

If you work on a shared list, all you have to do is to @mention someone to assign them a task. This is the simple method, but you can also assign tasks in the classic way:

  1. Open Microsoft To-Do.
  2. Go to your tasks.
  3. Click on the task that you want to assign.
  4. In the right details panel that appears, click on Assign to.
  5. Now you will see a new pop-up window with the list members. Click on the member to whom you want to assign the task.

After you assign a task to a member, all the other members in your shared list will be able to see who has which task.

Also, if you don’t want to clutter your lists with too many related tasks, you can create steps or sub-tasks to keep everything in order. To do that, follow the steps:

  1. Open Microsoft To-Do.
  2. Go to your tasks.
  3. Click on the task in which you want to add steps.
  4. In the right details panel that appears, under New Task, click on Add step.
  5. After you add the steps, you will always find them in the details panel, where you will be able to check them off as soon as they’re completed.

This way, with some added steps and task assignments, you will increase your workflow and productivity. You will also keep things more organised and easy to access.
