Microsoft To-Do launched in 2017 as a cross-platform app meant to eventually replace Wunderlist, which has also fallen under Microsoft's purview since it was acquired in 2015. Despite adding some solid features since launch, some technical issues have seemingly slowed the migration from Wunderlist to To-Do. However, Microsoft is getting ready to check another pretty important one off the proverbial to-do list: sharing.
Microsoft has announced that list sharing is coming to To-do in June (via OnMSFT). The feature will not only allow users to easily create sharing links from within the app, but will also allow for quick collaboration with others on the same list. Microsoft explains:
With our share link, we make it easy to coordinate and collaborate in small teams and one-on-one. Just generate the link and share with your team, family and friends via email, SMS or app of your choice. Once you've accomplished your project together, you're free to stop sharing and turn off the share link, remaining in control of your list.
According to Microsoft, list sharing is expected to roll out across To-Do for iOS, Android, Windows 10 and the web in "early June." Most To-Do users are expected to have the update by mid-June.
List sharing will follow the recent addition of subtasks, another notable feature that lets you easily divide tasks into individual steps. The app still has a ways to go before it'll replace Wunderlist for most, but it's making strides. Going forward, Microsoft is also planning to add Cortana integration. A MacOS app is also in the works, which is clearly at least in testing, judging by the list sharing screenshot shown off by Microsoft.
