Introducing list sharing from personal accounts to work accounts in Microsoft To Do

Microsoft To Do gives you a personal and intuitive way to stay organized and make the most of every day. Today, most of our tasks involve collaboration with multiple people – something that list sharing can make easier. Whether you want to share a list of work items with your colleagues or a grocery list with a loved one, To Do makes it easy to collaborate and get things done together.

 

List sharing in To Do was originally restricted to sharing between personal accounts and sharing between work (or school) accounts within the same organization. However, many of you wanted to be able to share between personal and work accounts.

 

We listened to your feedback and are pleased to announce that you can now share lists from personal accounts to work accounts in Microsoft To Do.

 

To Do supports list sharing for the following scenarios: 

  • Sharing between personal Microsoft accounts.
  • Sharing between accounts within the same place of work or education.
  • Sharing between personal accounts and work accounts. Work accounts can join lists owned by personal accounts provided enterprise admins have enabled this feature for their respective organizations. However, personal accounts cannot join lists owned by work accounts.

 

Whether it’s a grocery list that your spouse wants to share from a personal account with your work account or a work-related list that an external vendor team can share from their personal accounts with your work account, collaborating on To Do has never been easier.

We can’t wait to hear what you think about this new feature - let us know in the comments below or over on Twitter and Facebook. You can also write to us at todofeedback@microsoft.com.
