Microsoft To Do – your tool for stress-free task management

You’re no doubt familiar with that feeling of being up to your ears in numerous tasks for several different projects and struggling to keep track of what you have to do. All hand-written to-do lists do is create even more clutter on your desk and confusion in your head, rather than actually helping you get organized. Microsoft found a solution for this a long time ago – Microsoft To Do.

Three helpful To Do features that enable smooth task planning

Set a specific due date for a task

To maintain a better overview of your tasks, it is advisable to set a specific due date for all your tasks in Microsoft To Do. One practical benefit is that your to-do list is then sorted automatically.

Set a reminder for a task

You can also set up reminders for tasks in Microsoft To Do. This is particularly helpful if you are working on lots of different tasks at the same time and want to make sure you don’t miss any deadlines. You have the choice of when you want to be reminded – later in the day, tomorrow, next week, or at a certain date and time.

Set a recurring task

In addition, To Do makes it possible for you to set up recurring tasks. This function is really helpful for scheduling regular meetings and weekly or daily tasks. The standard options of recurring daily, weekly, on certain days of the week, monthly and annually are available. It is also possible to define your own intervals. Whenever you mark a recurring task as completed in To Do, the next task will automatically be displayed.
