How To Share Task Lists In Microsoft To-Do App

Microsoft To-Do app is useful for creating task lists and reminders. These created task lists can also be shared with other members by inviting them if needed. A Microsoft account would be needed though for the members who would like to access these To-Do lists.

Here is how to share and manage them in Windows 10.

Sharing lists:

As the list owner, open the Microsoft To-Do app and click on the People icon.

The second option will completely purge the access so that no members can access it and the list will no longer be shared. For that, click on Stop sharing to continue.
