Microsoft Word Gets Intelligent About To-Do Lists

Microsoft Word gets AI-powered to-do lists and collaboration feature Microsoft is bringing a new To-Do feature to Word on Windows, Mac, and the web

With this in mind, new technology for Microsoft Word helps users avoid those distractions.

"Word has always been the standard for creating professional-quality documents", Microsoft corporate vice president Jared Spataro explains. Microsoft responded by continuing to improve the feature set of Office, and now it is turning to artificial intelligence to make Word cleverly create to-do lists for you.

Champ sets the early pace in Mexico
Matt Kuchar grabbed a two-shot lead at the halfway stage of the Mayakoba Golf Classic, as Jordan Spieth missed the cut in Mexico. Matt Kuchar , who shared the 18-hole lead, was among those playing in the afternoon.

That is, when you type TODO: followed by some phrase ("finish this section" perhaps), Word will track it as a to-do. Users will then be able to view a complete list of to-dos and click on each item to go to the appropriate portion in that document. The organization is trying another component in its word processor that will consequently identify notes and messages left for yourself as well as other people and transform them into actionable lists.

Once Word automatically creates these placeholders in a document, the app will keep track of all of them and also display them on a dedicated panel when users come back to the document.

And as a sweet end to her sweet gesture, Yahoo Lifestyle reported that Organo was promoted to Cabin Crew Evaluator on the flight. Since she posted her moving story and a photo on Facebook Wednesday, the post has been shared more than 29,000 times.

"Over time, Office will use AI to help fill in many of these placeholders". For now, if you want to take advantage of the AI-free to-do list feature, you'll need to be a member of the Office Insiders "Fast" ring. Microsoft notes that users will soon have the ability to "reply to the notification with their contributions, and those contributions will be inserted directly into the document", but that feature hasn't arrived quite yet. Microsoft says its research shows Word users leave placeholders in a document to remind them where they are.

Microsoft plans to enable these linked contacts to reply with their contribution, which the software would automatically insert into the document. "You will be able to pick from the results and insert content from another document with a single click", the post said.

Rick Scott, Bill Nelson spar over Broward, Palm Beach vote counting
The governor, meanwhile, filed lawsuits in both counties seeking more information on how their ballots were being tallied. Mr Gillum trails Mr DeSantis now by less than 38,000 votes, which is in recount range if the margin holds.

Right now, these features are only available as a preview on Word on the Mac for Office Insiders (Fast).
