Users running the beta version of Microsoft To-Do on Android received an update last month that brought with it the ability to create task list groups, among others. The feature, as the name suggests, lets users group similar kinds of tasks and place it inside a group, making it easier to get to the tasks that you wish to easier. That feature today is rolling out to users across all platforms.
List Groups, as the feature is called, helps users collate similar tasks and place them inside groups that can be expanded, taking away the pain to scroll through the multitude of tasks that one may have. Take for example a collection of lists one would make before a vacation or for a certain project. The company says that this feature is one of the most requested ones.
Other examples that the firm suggests include groups such as archive lists – where users can drag lists that they no longer use frequently but would want to have around. In addition to the list groups feature, the app on all platforms also gained the ability to assign tasks to users in shared lists, something that was also in testing. Tasks assigned to you should show up in the “Assigned to Me” section in the app.
With Microsoft steadily adding significant features for not just consumers, but also business users, and some nifty improvements in the works, To-Do is shaping out to become a powerful cross-platform list taking app. Today’s update that enables the List Groups feature should be rolling out to users on all supported platforms.
If you do not use the app yet and would like to give it a try, you can head to the Microsoft Store here on your PC to download the app or head to https://to-do.microsoft.com/ on the web. You can also download the app through the Play Store here on Android, App Store here on iOS or the App Store on the Mac here. Since the feature has just begun rolling out, it is possible that it will not be available to all users right away.
