Microsoft has provided more information about its recently announced Microsoft Lists*, a feature that will soon be joining Microsoft 365’s productivity suite of software. With Lists, users can track issues, manage inventory, build out event agendas, report status, manage FAQs, and more.
When you write down a list of things you must recall, it can be a challenge just to keep up with that initial information. But if your list grows and changes and starts being added to by others, the list can soon grow out of control. That’s the type of challenge that Microsoft Lists solves, according to Seth Patton, general manager of Microsoft 365.
*Note: On April 21, 2020, Microsoft rebranded Office 365 to Microsoft 365 to focus it more towards the consumer and small business markets.
Some Features of Microsoft Lists
- Web-based or mobile app | Lists can be created and shared using either a web browser or a mobile app. Information from both sources is constantly syncing.
- Microsoft Lists and Microsoft Teams | Create a new list or embed an existing list directly in a Teams channel – enabling a side-by-side conversation.
- Ready-made templates | Comes with preconfigured forms, views, formatting, and more. Or create your own.
- Stay in sync | Customizable views, smart rules, and sharing.
