It’s time to liberate yourself from coordination chaos. Time to clear your brain space and get organized. In short, it’s time to try the Microsoft Lists – MSA Preview.
Today we’re introducing Microsoft Lists - MSA Preview, a lightweight version of the Microsoft Lists app designed for small business and individual use in conjunction with your Microsoft account (MSA).
Track what matters | Learn more and get started at lists.live.com (sign in with your MSA).
We would love for you to participate. Start by creating and sharing lists with your work colleagues, partners, your soccer team, or your neighborhood volunteer groups. We’ve designed the app off the core of Microsoft Lists, plus introduce new experiences like tabbed views, sharing from within a Person column, add images inline, and more. We’re excited to see what sorts of information tracking goodness you create during preview, and how you share it all – and it all starts at the new top-level URL entry point: lists.live.com.
The Microsoft List - MSA Preview is available online only and limited to 200,000 Microsoft accounts (MSA) to try at no cost on a first-come, first-served basis. *
Give it a try and let us know what you think. Don’t be shy. There’s in-product Feedback to let us know what you like, where things could improve, and any feature suggestions you have for Microsoft. We review it all.

Note: This preview is not yet accessible on the Microsoft Lists for iOS or Android mobile apps, or from within Microsoft Teams personal or Microsoft Teams essentials. During preview, you can try up to 50 lists, with up to 2,000 items/list. There, too, is a 200MB limit for files, video, and image storage per list.
If you’re planning to use Microsoft Lists with a business account and personal Microsoft account (this preview), you’ll need to switch between accounts to see each set of lists – switching between your Microsoft account and your Microsoft 365 org ID.

Podcast, demo video, and a sample list to help get to know the Microsoft Lists - MSA Preview
1) Listen to the latest episode of The Intrazone, "Lists for everyone" -- Join @Miceile Barrett and @Ben Truelove from the Lists product team chatting about key product insights and design for the Microsoft Lists - MSA Preview:
2) Here's a 20-minute demo video tour to help kickstart both how to get into the preview and to help visualize what you can try once you sign up and sign in (at no cost):
3) And last, see it in action. We created a public, view-only resources list meta example using the MSA Preview from Mark's personal Microsoft account: Lists resources. You'll find it a great showcase of a common use case - tracking content for a product launch. This list uses the "Content scheduler" template, has a little bit of JSON for the Date column (thanks to Tetsuya Kawahara's "date-page-a-day-calendar" PnP sample), and has three tabbed views for All, Published, and Scheduled items. Let me/us know what you think. And if you create your own and wish to share, @mention us: @SharePoint, @MKashman, and @MSFTMiceile.
Stay on top of it all with Microsoft Lists
Can’t wait to hear what you think. Let us know in the comments below, on social @Microsoft365 - @mention us - we’re all eyes and ears.
Make a list and check it twice, once “for work” and once “for life.”
