New To-Do feature in Word

blog0 comments

Microsoft has recently announced the To Do Feature coming soon to Word.

This will mean if there is a place in your document you want to come back to at a later time, just type TODO and whatever note you want, like “add images” and Word will recognise and track these entries as to-dos.

Another new feature will be the ability of @mention within the TODO placeholder.
So, if you wish for a colleagues input on a section of the Word document, you can add TODO: @mention.

When you come back to the document, you’ll see a list of your remaining to-dos, and you can click each one to navigate back to the right spot.

When you @mention someone within the to-do, Word will email them a notification with a “deep link” to the relevant place in the document.

Once this has rolled out, please be aware that your document needs to be stored on SharePoint or OneDrive for business to get this to work.

This new capability is available is currently in preview, and rolling out soon for all Office 365 subscribers.
