Microsoft To Do on Windows 10 can now auto-complete mentions when you’re assigning tasks when you press the tab key. The new feature comes in an update that also adds accessibility fixes and a few other changes. The update is available now through the Microsoft Store.
Mentions allow you to assign a task to someone on a shared to-do list. When you type the “@” symbol and start typing a person’s name, Microsoft To Do shows suggested names as you type. Now, you can just press the tab key to auto-complete the mention. Here’s the complete changelog:
- Using @mentions to assign tasks while you type? We’ve made it even easier now: press tab to auto-complete.
- The sections within your Flagged Email list have had a slight name change to make the sections clearer.
- We fixed an issue that caused you issues with manual sorting after exiting one of our automatic sort options.
- We made a lot of accessibility fixes, including adjusting colors for better contrast and improving keyboard navigation within a list.
The update makes it easier to assign people to tasks when you’re using a mouse and keyboard. The new feature allows you to complete them without having to take your hands off the keyboard.
