Say Goodbye to To-Do Chaos: This Microsoft Tool Will Change Your Life! (It’s Free)

Are you looking for a simple and powerful to-do list app to help you get things done? If so, you should try Microsoft To Do. It’s the perfect app for busy people like you and your teams.

In this blog post, I’ll show you how I use Microsoft To Do to help me get things done. I’ll also share some tips and tricks that you can use to increase your work productivity and achieve your goals.

Getting Started with Microsoft To Do

Microsoft To Do is available as a free web app and as a mobile app for iOS and Android. You can also access it through the Microsoft Office suite.

To get started, create a free Microsoft account. Once you have an account, you can go to and select Outlook. Then, click on the To Do icon.

Creating Lists and Tasks

When you first open Microsoft To Do, you’ll see a list called “Now.” This is a great place to put tasks that you need to do today.

You can create additional lists by clicking on the plus sign (+) and selecting “New List.” I like to create lists for different areas of my life, such as work, personal, and errands.

To add a task to a list, simply type it into the text box and press Enter. You can also add due dates, priorities, and flags to your tasks.

My Day

One of my favorite features of Microsoft To Do is My Day. This is a list of tasks that you plan to do for the day.

Each morning, I review my lists and add the most important tasks for the day to My Day. This helps me to focus on what’s most important and avoid getting overwhelmed.

As I complete tasks, I can check them off of My Day. This gives me a sense of accomplishment and helps me to stay motivated.

Goals and OKRs

Microsoft To Do can also help you to achieve your goals. You can set goals and then break them down into smaller, more manageable tasks.

I like to use the OKR (Objectives and Key Results) framework to set my goals. OKRs are a popular goal-setting framework that is used by many successful companies.

With OKRs, you start by setting an ambitious objective. Then, you break down your objective into key results. Key results are measurable outcomes that you can track over time.

Once you have your OKRs set, you can use Microsoft To Do to track your progress. You can create tasks for each of your key results and then track your progress as you complete them.

Tips and Tricks

Here are a few tips and tricks that I’ve learned for using Microsoft To Do:

  • Use the search bar to find tasks quickly.
  • Set reminders for your tasks so you don’t forget to do them.
  • Use the priority levels to help you focus on the most important tasks.
  • Share your lists with others so you can collaborate on tasks.
  • Integrate Microsoft To Do with other Microsoft products, such as Outlook and Teams.
