I recently presented a webinar on utilizing the various Microsoft 365 task management apps. I did a deep dive into the Microsoft To Do app. It is the leading app to manage all your personal and small group tasks. To Do can help you create, manage, and prioritize personal tasks — but many don’t know about the lists and groups features within Microsoft To Do.
