How is Microsoft Lists Useful?
Microsoft Lists is a Microsoft 365 app, accessible from the App Launcher, that can be used from a unique home page in SharePoint Online, from a downloadable app on your mobile device, or from Microsoft Teams. It looks across your tenant at all of the SharePoint lists that have been created and provides a "dashboard" of the lists a user can access. Just as you can “follow” a site, you will be able to “follow” a SharePoint list and have a link to that list presented in a Favorites group. Additionally, SharePoint lists that you frequently visit will be available to you from the Recent Lists group. This allows you to track information and helps you organize your work. Using custom views, smart rules and alerts, you can keep your team aware and in sync.
Microsoft developed ten ready-made templates containing formatted screens for viewing information that assist with common business activities such as event planning, employee on-boarding, asset tracking and more. You can quickly start lists online, on the new mobile app, or directly from within Microsoft Teams using one of these templates, by uploading an Excel file, or by creating a custom SharePoint list. Lists are simple, smart, and flexible, so you can stay on top of what matters most to your Organization.
