Introducing Lists for Use In Microsoft 365

Jul 2020

Microsoft have added a new app to it's 365 suite of apps with the launch arrival of the first stage of Microsoft Lists. Microsoft Lists home (web) is the central place for all the lists you access across different sites.

Targeted for release in late July, and complete for all by mid-October 2020, Lists helps you organise, collaborate and share. You can quickly start a list from scratch or get inspired by ready-made templates. View your recently accessed lists no matter where they are stored and favourite lists that need quick access.

To get to the Lists home page on the web, click the Lists icon in the Microsoft 365 app launcher.

The Lists home page provides easy access to your recently visited and favourite lists.

What can users do on Lists?

  • View all their recently accessed lists as part of the “Recent lists” section
  • View all favourite lists as part of the “Favourites” section. Any list can be favourited for quick access from Lists home or from the list on their SharePoint site
  • View all the personal lists they’ve created
  • Create a new list: from scratch, from an Excel spreadsheet, from an existing list or from 8 ready-made templates
  • Rename a list
  • Share a list

What’s new in List creation?

  • Full visual refresh of the experience
  • Ability to create a list from 8 ready-made templates
