Why Should You Be Using Microsoft Lists?

Microsoft 365 offers a variety of productivity apps, some you might not even know about! Did you realize Microsoft Lists was one of them? This app can help your team track tasks or projects and stay organized from anywhere.

Here are the top reasons why you should be using Microsoft Lists for work:

Customizable Lists

You can create many different types of Lists. Common ones include:

  • Calendar View
  • Task List
  • Issue Tracking List
  • Announcement List
  • Contacts List
  • Asset List
  • Inventory List

Microsoft Lists allows you to customize columns and fields to input the exact information you need. It’s also simple to add, remove, or edit these columns when you need to.

Real-Time Collaboration

When working with colleagues on a project, you always want to be on the same page and be aware of any updates or progress. You can use Microsoft Lists to collaborate with your team in real time. Multiple people can edit your list simultaneously, and you can see all the changes as they happen.

Access Lists Anywhere

If you write your to-do lists by hand, it can get frustrating when you’re on the go and can’t remember everything you jotted down. With Microsoft Lists, you’re able to access your Microsoft Lists from any device!

Automated Workflows

You can use Microsoft Power Automate to create automated workflows that streamline repetitive tasks, such as sending notifications or creating new list items based on specific criteria.
