To Do becomes the glue for all Microsoft 365 apps

Microsoft To Do is a task management app that helps you keep organized and manage your day to day tasks. In fact, Microsoft had a lot bolder plans for it.

Of course, you can still use it as a conveniently as a grocery list for when you go to the market but the ultimate goal for Microsoft is to integrate it with all Microsoft 365 suite of applications.

That means that after making it available on all platforms, including Android, now they are making it available in key user workflows , especially for enterprise use.

How is Microsoft integrating To Do in Microsoft 365?

Last year, Microsoft integrated To Do in Outlook, and they announced the Tasks feature in Teams that will roll out to users this August.

Now, Microsoft announced that To Do is now available in Microsoft Teams.

To Do is already integrated with Planner – tasks assigned to you in Planner boards show up in the Assigned to you list. To Do is also available in Microsoft Launcher and any task added via Cortana gets added to To Do.

By Q121, we will support @mentions in Excel, Word, and PowerPoint, which means that whenever someone @mentions you, the tasks you’re mentioned in will automatically appear in your Assigned to you smart list.

We’re also working on adding your reading lists from Edge as tasks. More integrations are on the way to make To Do the place for all your tasks.

So, it seems that To Do will collect and connect tasks across the Microsoft 365 suite of applications.

As with all the enterprise apps that you’re bringing into your company to use, the first question that you will raise is the security aspect.

Microsoft specifies on the release post that To Do is built on the Microsoft Exchange platform, and it meets all security and privacy standards by design like your Outlook inbox.

And there are also advanced options for control. As an Administrator, you can give or take users access to To Do.

The Microsoft To Do integration will certainly help organize things inside any enterprise or group.
