Microsoft To Do will soon support push notifications for work accounts

Rabia Noureen

Microsoft To Do is about to get support for push notifications for shared list activities on work accounts. The company has recently announced the feature in the Microsoft 365 Admin Center, notifying that it will start rolling out in October.

Just as a reminder, Microsoft announced push notifications for personal accounts back in December 2019. Now, the software giant plans to bring the same capability to the business users. After receiving this update, users will get push notifications in the Windows, Android, and iOS versions of To Do for shared list activities. More specifically, they will receive notifications when someone joins the list; a new task is added, completed, unchecked, or deleted.

It is important to note that the feature will be enabled by default for all Office 365 customers. To prepare for this change, IT admins will be able to review or change the setting by heading to the Microsoft 365 admin center > Settings > Org settings. Then select Microsoft To Do, and finally click the checkbox available besides the “Allow your users to receive push notifications” option to turn push notifications on or off in your tenant.
Considering that managing work tasks can be overwhelming sometimes, the new functionality should make keeping up with shared lists a bit easier for people.
