The oth­er day when I was hold­ing a struc­ture train­ing ses­sion with a client in Mass­a­chu­setts, we talked about how to best struc­ture the to-do list in Microsoft To-Do.

A list per colleague?

I often see that many peo­ple use the lists” they can cre­ate in To-Do to rep­re­sent the dif­fer­ent col­leagues they have things to do with and for. How­ev­er, this makes the list eas­i­ly unmanageable.

No, give them a #-tag each

It is bet­ter to let the sub-lists rep­re­sent the dif­fer­ent projects or areas of respon­si­bil­i­ty that you are respon­si­ble for or involved in. 

If you want to eas­i­ly see all the tasks relat­ed to a par­tic­u­lar col­league, spec­i­fy it in the task using a #-tag — for exam­ple, #David. Then you quick­ly get an overview of every­thing you have to do relat­ed to David — regard­less of which project the task is part of. Handy!

What is your lat­est trick?

Have you come up with any tricks that make your work in To-Do eas­i­er? Please share!
